Revolution


PHOTOGRAPHER'S JOURNAL: Spotted in an old barn in Cornwall, I was struck by the momentary confluence. That was the orbit of my eye. All my picture thoughts revolved on that axis, and by the time I set up and took this shot, it was time to leave. In the rush, I have no notes on what the machine on the left does, nor a photograph of the mechanism, but my recollection is that it had something to do with separating seed from chaff.

Much more peaceful than Lybia, Bahrein, etc...

I guess you haven't been to Wisconsin recently. Well, yes, more peaceful than Lybia and Bahrein. It's been a long time since there has been that kind of revolution in these hills.

This is to stare at, Ted! Gorgeous lighting.

I like how you preserve remnants of history with character.

Thanks, Ginnie. It was back in a corner. The lighting was interesting but without hdr it would have needed lights. It's a kind of picture I love to put together.

Tim, I like to think of it as time travel. To me it's a bigger mystery than space. Around here there's a farm landscape that's quickly disappearing. I know areas beyond the Phila. suburbs that are similar. I've lived here 30 years, but I'm only now really aware of how much has changed in that time.
