02.08.2021 Dawn over Slobody Farm

Not a working farm, but part of town property that is conserved under that name.

Just a lucky drive by at another time.  I haven’t been able to get out with the camera for a few days so trolled the archives again.

    This has beautiful pastel tones and depth of interest from foreground to the background. Lucky timing but not lucky photography. Strange name though, Solbody.

    • Thanks, Andrew. I think they named the farm after me. When I used to play softball and got a good long hit there was always the doubt if I would make it all the way around the bases without getting caught. I was dubbed the “molasses express”.

    It is truly worthwhile to dig in the archives every once in a while. Your picture is so beautiful, Steve.

    Andrew articulated all the things I was thinking but not finding the right words. All I was coming up with was, “beautiful”. It looks like a wonderful place to explore.

  6. This would have been a very nice photograph even without the sunset. With it? Mmm mmm.

    I’m quite taken with the cattails and reeds. They’re a nice contrast to the pastel colors elsewhere: bright, and appealing.

    Not a working farm? Really, not a surprise. What could one have grown there? Maybe a small crop of wild rice? Still, your composition renders it most appealing, especially in this magic light.

    • There is more to the farm than this wetland but it’s not as photogenic. Abandoned and run down there may be some possibilities for someone with an eye for old buildings and farm equipment. Actually its last iteration was a horse boarding facility. It was all about the light.
