Beauty and the Beast
It is both rewarding and at times surprising when what you envision at a scene actually comes to life. For this set I had to sit back and allow the images and my expectations for them to marinate a while, simmer a bit in their juices, and then stir.
Today I stirred.
The photographs are of Martin's Farm in Guildhall, Vermont. The Martin's are Katherine's longtime family friends who have some property in Guildhall that is being refurbished. The house being refurbished was of no interest, especially when I had this magnificent barn to explore. The clean, white door, unhinged and propped up against a beam, stood out like a pearl, anxious to be photographed against the weathered browns and slate grays of the barn.
I'm always on the lookout for places like this but rarely find them and when I do I fail to execute the vision. I think I got it this round. These have all been printed on Hahnemühle Photo Rag paper and look splendid. Print your work!
