From the Archives of 2005—5


July 26, 2020

Photographs from the archives of 2005 finish up with scenes and objects in Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

1 Before we moved back to Oberlin, we lived next door to this barn and silo.

2 Around the corner, a quarter mile away or so, is an old barn. I have often wondered if that Future Farmer of America stayed on the farm.

3 Further down that road was another, even older, barn.

4 I longed to get closer to it, and finally one day, I did. The hand-hewn beams alone were worth the dare.

5 Not too long after I visited it, the barn was demolished. I often wonder if its owner, across the street, saw me go inside and considered it too dangerous. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to go back.

6 Did J.E.J. put his initials in the barn out of pride? Did someone save this plank?

7 Continuing down the road I saw more history played out in the fences. I wonder how long this one has stood.

8 On the other side of the road a living tree was put to service in guarding the property or corralling livestock.

9 Heading back home I came upon a gorgeous maple tree on that gorgeous October day.

10 In Michigan for a niece’s wedding, I had some time for photographing before the festivities.

11 In Wisconsin my daughter drove while I played photography out the car window. This is one of my first Intentional Camera Movement images—taken before I knew there was such a thing, and maybe before the term was coined.

12 At Dr. Evermor’s I played with mirrors.
