Elizabeth Barton's work (please visit and take a good look at her landscape gallery and you'll see what I mean) and partly because I have always been drawn to industrial buildings...ok...buildings in general.
The next thing which I have been thinking of is a question that Lynn Krawczyk posed on her blog in January. "What images do you love?", she asked. For her, she takes inspiration from birds on a wire.
Not only in screen prints that she has done from her images, but she has incorporated them in other ways as well. For me, it is nature and architecture, particularly industrial and agricultural with decaying architecture right up there. I also love details.
Churches, nestled at crossroads in the middle of the country are also falling in. This one is near New Lebanon and I was hesitant to pull off closer to get a shot. Even so, there is something majestic in the trees with the shuttered windows.
This shot, however, is one of my favorites. Its the grain bins at a very wealthy and well kept farm not far from my house. No, I didn't use any filters for this shot, they just gleamed against the early morning light while on the way to a cross country meet in West Milton.
I can't wait to do something with this. I love the light and the skies that you can find in this part of the world. I knew I missed it when I lived in Connecticut, but I didn't realize how much until I moved back. The light and the skyscapes are breath taking....even if most people do consider it a fly-over state. ;)
