Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: All Things Farm Related

Good thing we live in an area with farms, eh? All reminding me that we owe it to ourselves to see if there’s any fresh corn or tomatoes at the locals farms. It’s getting late in the season, so mostly now, it’s all about apples.

Corn shoots into the container

All of these pictures were taken while we were visiting friends in Peacham, Vermont. All shot during the hour while they harvested a field of corn. I wasn’t sure I would like them in monochrome, but I think I like them better. The sepia and selenium toning gives the photographs an “outside-of-time” feeling.

  1. Sepia is a good Choice for country scenes, transports you back to the good old days. Particularly like the photo second to last with the spout shooting out the corn


    1. Thank you. Sepia really is the right color to make the photos look “old” without making them “antique.” I learned something new, which makes ME pretty happy, too 😀 That’s part of why I love your challenging. I try things I wouldn’t otherwise attempt and sometimes, it really works out.
