My Dot on the Map: Work Farm

We happened upon this interesting farm on our photography excursion last week. Don’t know exactly where it is except somewhere in the southeast corner of my dot on the map. Roll up your sleeves and enjoy your visit.

I was excited to see that there are people to tend to the ailments old barns tend to experience. Like us, their joints weaken and the outer structure sags.

This old wind mill is still standing but not working very hard. It has an interesting structure which now serves a purpose of giving me pleasure.

Julie was further down the fence photographing the two horses in the field. This one was curious (I think) and did a lot of prancing and posing. Or maybe it was just telling us something we couldn’t hear.

I love this curved fence that defines the barn yard from the distant fields and frames this side of the barn. What beautiful barn windows.

I worked hard to capture the personality of this farm. I guess you can’t be on a work farm without expecting to work hard. We left before they asked us to clean the horse barn. For us city folk, living on a farm seems like the simple life, but to those who work the farm, life is anything but simple or easy.

  1. A lovely series showcasing a farm life. The curving fence is my favorite. You’re so right, we imagine that living on a farm is easy but the fact is that it requires early rising and lots of painstaking work. Great post …..

    • It often seems like horses like the attention of the camera. If only we could get inside the brains of animals instead of projecting our thoughts onto them. πŸ™‚ I really appreciate your affirming comments, Sue.
