Little Green

Green knight.


here’s no mystery to this picture. See the subject, talk to him for a minute and ask if I could photograph him.

But, I wanted to open up the picture and turn it into something the verges on the edge of high key. That meant dropping out a lot of background detail which I did. By doing that I sort of highlighted the church in the background which made a great background for a green knight.

In fact, the more I look at the picture as I write, the more I think this is a great portrait. It’s not the usual Mardi Gras parade photograph. It’s something else entirely. It almost has a very stylized studio-like feeling. This may be something else to explore a little.

If I do everything I’ve said I wanted to do, I would never have to leave the house again except to go on the road. I doubt that I’ll accomplish everything especially since we just bought the farm.

No. Not that way.

I mean that we just spent a lot of money for a house in the country. And, some land. 80 acres of it.

Something to keep us busy in the new year.

    Congrats on the new house. I’m not too good at acres, but 80 sounds like a good piece of land?

      Thank you. The house needs remodeling but it’s the land that matters. Most of the farms in the region are or were dairy farms. 80 acres is a good sized piece of land. 1 acre is about 4200 square meters.

        Ok. That’s 33.6 hectares. A good size land. Enjoy.

    Stunning! The jewel green is fabulous. And congratulations on the purchase of your farm. Open land sounds so appealing to me! 😉
