Stories to Tell—A Day at the Farm…

At the Oliver H. Kelley Farm

This is a pictorial story, not a written one. But to set the stage, I spent a few hours with a couple new photographer friends. We had a great time wandering around this old farm that is still run the way it was in the 1860s (well, with a couple modern amenities). The Oliver H. Kelley Farm was started by Oliver H. Kelley, who was the founder of the Grange. Would be a great place to bring the kids, too. As it’s not overcrowded, you can get near the animals, and even help out in the field and kitchen.

I also brought a film camera along, but since this was just yesterday, you’ll have to wait. Remember those days of anxiously waiting for your film to come back? I haven’t shot film in ages, and this is an old film camera that I hadn’t used yet (it was new for me).

Limited Edition Series – On the Farm

Some of the images below will make it into a limited edition On the Farm series of prints. (News on that later. I’ll announce it here and on my business blog.)

Enjoy your virtual trip to the farm! Some of the images have captions, hover with your mouse to view. (Click on an individual photo to see larger and to view as a slideshow.)

    Neat! Some of the shots looked like my Grandparent’s farm when I was a kid. I love the barn door shots.

    You may not believe this Barb but the stove reminded me of the stove we had in our house in the 1960s. My mother loved it! Then in early to mid 70s the company (the company my dad worked for) decided it was time to upgrade the kitchen and out went the cast iron stove and in came the new generation and my mom couldn’t stand it. She had no choice so she got used to it over time. For several years we used to hear about how good the old stove was.

    I loved the blue color on the wagon or the cart and I also liked the color of the rocks below the wood wall.

    Nicely done!

    • Well, the kitchen smelled great with whatever the gal was cooking. Sure would have made for a really hot kitchen when you were growing up. That baby puts out some heat!
