I have always loved this photograph. I ran across it in an old portfolio the other day. I took it in college (in the 1980’s) with a 35mm Minolta film camera and developed and printed it in the college darkroom. Oh, the good old days when I could spend an entire day printing B/W photographs in the darkroom to my heart’s content! 🙂 And the smell of developer and stop bath. Hmm…I think I just got a whif of them in my memory. LOL
The dog belonged to the farm and just happened to trot right out in front of me for a second while I was shooting the picture. Then he happily took off down the road, back to the barn.
It is overcast and raining today, a perfect day for reminiscing…
Have a wonderful, creative day, Janell
A few months ago I posted about how I was thinking of adding these two little girls to a painting. I had created a sketch from a picture of my sister and I when we were children. Well, before I got a chance to start working on adding us in, I received a couple of inquiries about the painting. So, I decided to create a new painting with the two girls and give it to my sister for her birthday.
While I was painting, I had a lot of time reminiscing about all the fun walks my sister and I shared while we were looking for wild flowers. We were fortunate to grow up in a small mill town called Hilt, located in Northern California. We spent a good amount of time roaming around the countryside. We had the best swimming hole! I was a total rock hound (still am) and loved going rock hunting.
Have a wonderful creative day, Janell
