Into the sun

When I was growing up one of the first photo tips that was given to me, was to never photograph directly into the sun. I suspect this fomented a certain rebellion within my being. It impressed me to such a degree that I can still remember it all these years later. I also remember my kindergarten teacher telling me that my coloring technique was not correct. I had gone outside the lines and had not kept my coloring lines orderly. I really tried to toe the line, but when the spirit of coloring possessed me it was very hard to keep my colors separate, within the lines and orderly.

So perhaps it is these early reprimands and directions towards a more orderly drawing technique and the correct way to take pictures that helped create my personal

style. I find I am always photographing directly into the sun. To me that is where some of the more interesting light occur.

November days

Spent some time at Still Meadow farm, my wife’s family farm down in Williamstown, Vermont  this weekend.  A time of transition with the fall color gone and the brown of november predominate before the arrival of the winter snows. The sheep were enjoying the brussel sprouts and beets from the farm garden. The sugarhouse in the background has all the wood stored ready for sugar maple season in the early spring.
