Something Along These Lines

I really appreciate everyone's compliments on my photos!  Though I don't consider myself a photographer, I do love to venture out with my camera.  My captures are the basis for my art work.  I get so excited about the prairies (as you know).  In contemplating that big question, 'where do I go from here?', the future is coming clear.  I would just love to be commissioned to stitch up a farm or land by beginning with my own photo shoot of a client's beloved space.  I've been asked to work from people's photos before, but I haven't been asked to go get my own shots.  Every so often, I come home with scenes like these.

August long weekend 2011, drive-by capture on the highway

That would make a lovely piece of art.  I have no idea whose homes these are, but as I am capturing scenes, I often end up with an 'accidental' building or two that really add character to the piece.  This next one was on the highway to Calgary, and I didn't realize there was a building in the photo until later.  I was focused on those glowing pieces of land in the distance.

I took this last year and stitched up a beautiful piece!

on of my favorites, shows off the summer heat (2010)

I haven't made the last one, but the next one was made into a very cute postcard.  It is quite picture-perfect, though I prefer land & sky to buildings.  Still, imagine being asked to come photograph someone's land!?  What a thrill!

Berry Barn gift shop windows, 2010

It's really quite unbelievable what a collection of photos I have stockpiled to work on once summer holidays have ended.  Some day... wouldn't that be cool to explore around a someone's land and see what things I can come up with?  That would be a real custom commission.  Maybe some day...  : )

If you ever come down to Wyoming I'd love for you to come shoot our place. It'd be nice to see it from someone else's perspective. :)
