She is in the early stages of the development and wanted to have some photos taken before she begins. She has started some work on the buildings to protect them, and still has much to do. She asked if I would come out and take some photos. Shortly after I arrived I found myself in a photographers heaven. I spent almost three hours exploring and taking photos, and I only scratched the surface. What a neat opportunity this was.
I took this photo at around 12:30 PM. This wall in the barn faces south, and it was a sunny day. The light was just brilliant that was coming through the wall.
- After about 3 hours of photography, my creative energy stopped flowing. Perhaps it's because I've been sick, and am still recovering. I could tell it was time to stop.
- The owner asked if I would be ok to photograph on my own. Earlier, I asked my wife if she wanted to go. She said that it's boring to watch me take photos, and that it takes a long time. So, I told the owner that it's better when I'm on my own. If someone who isn't into photography is there, I tend to rush the process. I enjoy taking my time, setting the camera to various settings, looking for interesting angles, and many other aspects of photography. The owners two children followed me for a while, and we talked about what I was doing. They seemed interested in the process much longer than I would have thought, but they wondered off after a while. I guess the lesson is to take time, but not hold other people hostage to my passion.
