I was in South Dakota with my family last weekend. On Saturday I had the opportunity to borrow my niece’s truck and go on a late afternoon abandoned farmhouse hunt. What I found was visually very pleasing to my eye. The light was gorgeous. I was walking in ditches wearing my favorite cowboy boots. It was warm and I kept finding these images seemingly rising out of the sky. These photos represent resilience, strength, courage and yet they also convey a feeling of loneliness and longing. I found the starkness quite beautiful.
On my farmhouse hunt I got so excited as I did a u-turn into an overgrown driveway and I was ready to shoot loads of pictures. However, I quickly realized that I was at the same farmhouse I shot in August with my Mom. Perhaps there is a reason that I got to shoot it again in different light in a different season.
