Midwest Farm at Dusk

“Midwest Farm at Dusk”
Photo of the Week #20, selected in September, 2019

The Midwestern U.S. has many iconic farmhouses and barns and I have certainly shot my share of them. This particular farm is located in Caldwell, Kansas, about an hour due south of Wichita near the Oklahoma border. The Chisholm Trail ran by here from 1867 to 1871, and you can easily imagine this farm operating during that time frame.

Besides being an attractive set of antique farm buildings, I like this particular shot because the tones that the “Golden Hour” provided, as well as the contrast between the dark, freshly-plowed field with the untouched grassy surroundings.

“The Ghosts of Commerce”
Photo of the Week #17, selected in September, 2019

I have always been fascinated by abandoned buildings, especially those that were storefronts, gas stations or other means of commerce. The photo of this rural drive-in store store was taken in Central Kansas and I have often wondered what it was like when it was first built and used. At first I thought it was a gas station, but there were no visible signs that gas pumps once stood there. Its sign has an odd shape on top, like perhaps someone wearing a chef’s hat, so I’ve been thinking it was a roadside bakery. It’s fun to guess!

This photo was also used for the cover of my fourth book of poetry, “Aspects Long Forgotten,” and also inspired the title piece of the book.

Winter Sunset with Stump

“Winter Sunset with Stump”
Photo of the Week #15, selected in August, 2019

Another one of my favorite photos from Kansas, this pic was taken in winter at Cheney Reservoir in the central part of the state, the lake frozen over and a tree stump making a shadow in the sunset. Well played, Kansas. Well played.

Kansas will eventually frustrate local photographers, since there are only so many scenes of waving wheat and grassy plains one can shoot. However, with patience, opportunities like this are often presented if one is open and ready for them. In the few years I lived there, I went on several photo outings with the hope of coming across something interesting, even in the middle of winter. One this day, my optimism was rewarded.
