A Windy November Day At The Farm

I don’t go ‘country’ very often, but I  enjoy it tremendously when I do! Yesterday was a special day at the Oliver Kelley Farm in Minnesota. The farm is fully operational and dates back to the 1850s. Everything is done the way it was done 150 years ago. It is open to the public part of the year. Yesterday was a Fall event with a guided tour. Although it was wonderful to have access to the place in the off-season, it also made photography a bit challenging  as participants stayed with a tour guide… Nothing stops me from snapping a few pictures here and there and that’s exactly what I did while I was transported back in time 150 years…

These images were shot with the Samsung GalaxyNX and the 30mm f/2.0 pancake lens which I am testing as part of their Imagelogger program.

  1. Funny. I am so used to your work in black and white, that I would have thought you would have chosen a few in the same monochrome… It must have been a wonderful time to shoot, as it looks like a very nice place for photographers!

    • Thanks! The tones were so soft that I think color was more appropriate here. I don’t like to mix color and B&W pics in one story usually but I can see a few of those standing on their own in monochrome.

  2. Thank you for sharing, Valeria… I always look forward to your blog entries. I particularly love this one, full of old world charm one doesn’t experience much of these days. I admire you work. Keep it coming. :-)
