Farmhouse Windows in the Morning Light 1

October 13, 2017

Last month husband David and I were invited along with another couple to southwest Pennsylvania to stay at a farmhouse, the farmstead of which has been in our new friends’ family for six generations. The current farmhouse dates “only” from the mid-1800s. I anticipated roaming the house to capture hundreds of photographs. I did take a few, but I was distracted—not unhappily—by wonderful conversations, a jigsaw puzzle, multiple games of Bananagrams, and lots of real food, including homemade bread and persimmon cookies and pudding made from wild persimmons on the property. We’ve been promised a repeat invitation; maybe I’ll take more photographs next time. Maybe not.

  1. Yes, I very much like this – especially the misted view through the lower panes, and the shapes of the upper edges of the misting on the upper panes. 🙂

    • Thanks, Adrian. I wish I could have used a higher ƒ-stop so that the window frame would also be in focus, but with such low light, that wasn’t possible without a tripod, and I sooooo dislike hauling out the tripod.

      • No let’ see if I can get the whole comment down, before sending it!!!!!! 🙂 I’m the same, I have a really good tripod but seldom if ever use it – macro is the one genre where its indispensable but I do very little macro now.

        • I hope it’s a trade-off: The photos that would have been better or possible with a tripod against the greater ability I feel I have to more easily move around and shoot from various vantage points. Also: I can stay out longer if I’m not worn out from dragging around the tripod.
