A couple of weeks ago I went home with Scott (the boyfriend) to meet his parents for the first time. His parents have a big, beautiful farm in central Kansas, and even though we have been there a few times now I still haven’t even scratched the surface of what I would like to photograph there. Here is a small sampling of images that I shot over the past few visits.
They are surrounded by seemingly endless, gorgeous wheat fields. I have a small obsession with them I have realized. In the spring they are a stunning green, and then come summer they turn an amazingly rich gold. The texture is awesome for photographs, and watching as well as listening to a wheat field in the wind has to be one of the best things ever.
They have lots of animals on their farm, though I haven’t photographed most of them. This cat is absolutely precious, though extremely sick. She has taken a liking to me, and the last time I was there did her best to follow me around as I was shooting.
Last weekend while we were there for a short visit I was able to shoot a self-portrait that I am quite excited about. I am currently in the process of editing that, and when I get it done I will post it here, so be sure to check back!
I wasn’t free from everything until fairly late, and so was stuck with shooting in the dark as a result. I originally just wanted to see how my holga lens reacted to long exposures, but decided to switch over to my standard 50mm for some as well. I just started messing around with flashlights, and of course my cat got curious and had to get involved.
Today was spent relaxing and cleaning my apartment. I took this one this morning while lounging on the couch just to send to my fiance, and then completely forgot about taking an actual photograph until it was dark. And then I was too lazy to think of anything else.
