Farm Details

I could see any of these old farm items used in a wedding this season…may need a bit of work to clean it up first!  I love what brides are up to with their styling and details.  These however, are items left at my husband’s grandfather’s farm, which we now own.  Every time we are back in Nebraska, we go to the farm and I bring the camera.  This time I was able to photograph the old house and out buildings.  Most of the 7 buildings on the home place are completely unsafe, including the house.  Walls are falling in, and the floor is caving into the basement.  It feels like the last inhabitants just up and left. So much stuff is still around.  I love it!

Some day I’m going to clean this stove up and bring it to my home in Denver. Isn’t it beautiful?!

I love this image, the sun was shining through the cracked roof and onto a pile of work clothes.

Inside the house is still relatively intact.  This record player is still plugged in!

…and if I could get into the house without falling into the basement, I would take this sofa!  I could absolutely see this in a vintage store on South Broadway. Love it.

The bathroom wall paper cracks me up!

Here are some other images previously posted about the farm.

Sonoma

California Wine Country, so fun. I am finally getting to images from the remainder of our San Francisco trip following the Ries’ Wedding, Aaron and I spent a few days in Napa and Sonoma Counties wine tasting.  These are photos from some of our favorites: Francis Coppola Rubicon Estate, Chateau St. Jean, and Silver Oak

Charlene Goldman

I met Charlene a few years ago, as we both participated in the Ladies Who Launch Incubator to help turn our dream into our business.  Both being artists, we easily formed a bond.  Fast forward to today, Charlene has been creating beautiful oil paintings and I have been photographing them for her to submit to competitions and art galleries.  I think its been fun for both of us to watch our talents and business thrive!

Charlene has also been featured on Wordless Wednesday blogs twice now! Wordless Wednesday 1, and Wordless Wednesday 2

Farm Culture

This trip to Nebraska was action packed! Two trips overlapped, which was nice to not drive twice, but made for a hectic weekend.  First, one of Aaron’s good friends is getting married in June (which I get to photograph in San Francisco!!!) so the bachelor party was in Omaha (NOT photographed!). And Second, we were planting a shelter belt of trees along the south side of our farm.  180 trees to be exact. Crazy. Then, my sister is pregnant and a Maternity Session was in order (to be blogged in the near future). And lastly, her hubby is a theatre director and had a play showing, which I’ve wanted to photograph for a while now.  Lots of clicks on the camera for sure!

In order of events… planting of the trees. The actual planting was done by the State, thank goodness, but we had to go back and put down weed matts.  These are 1 year old seedlings and will need all the help they can get!

The Thursday night crew! Myself and my hubby, taken by Denise, and then Aaron and his mom, Denise.  Aaron’s Dad helped too, just not on Thursday night. Thursday was a beautiful evening, Friday morning on the other hand was miserably cold and windy, so the camera stayed in the truck. We just wanted to get the work done and go home! Sorry Jay…no photos of you!

And here is my dream home… a bit of a fixer-upper! Just kidding. It is completely unsafe, the floors are falling into the basement.  And I think an animal has staked its claim. However, my future address could be 434 Ave. Q! (ok, its Q Road, but I’m renaming it… didn’t you love the Broadway show Avenue Q!?)

The sunset. Breathtaking.

And for the Culture part of the weekend.  A Matter of Life and Death. Presented by the Northeast Players and Directed by Adam Peterson.

Now, I’ve never been in a play or been backstage. I really had no idea what to expect.  Lesson #1. Stage makeup is EXAGGERATED! See a 20 year old being turned into a 45 year old Doctor.  Lesson #2, to decrease set-change time, characters wear one wardrobe change on top of another.  My guess is the main male character had 4 wardrobe changes layered on! Very efficient.

I thought the show was very colorful and inventive when it came to set design! Check out last week’s Wordless Wednesday for my favorite shot. My favorite basically because the scene utilized half of a motorcycle… sometimes it doesn’t take much to make me smile!
