Brendan – on black

brend

I setup a little photo studio in our basement and had a little session with my oldest son Brendan. I think he was around 4 years old at this time. It was pretty difficult to get him to perform on command which is typical for kids of his age. But after a while he got into it and I captured some really good shots that are still some of my favorites. This one shows him with his trademark sly smile that’s going to be attracting the girls in the future.

Horse Head

I was walking down the street in Akron, Ohio (I think it might have been Wolf Ledges) and I looked up and this building had these odd, carved horse heads coming out of the side of the building. I don’t remember the building being very ornate except for these heads.

Evil little church

I was out riding my bike, looking for things to photograph and I found a new construction area where they were building a sprawling new allotment. I rode back into the dirt roads because I remember seeing an old house up on the hill years earlier and I wondered what happened to it. It wasn’t long before I could see that it was still there but it was completely burnt and gutted. It was basically a shell of a previously ornate and probably very nice mansion. The property was fairly large and had clearly been sold to a developer. After a little wandering around I noticed a few small buildings around the back and one of them was this little church. It was also gutted and looking fairly neglected. What was spooky is that people had defaced the little chapel with satanistic markings and drawings. I was immediately spooked but found some time to snap some picts before getting out of there.

Steak and son

We used to live in Canal Fulton Ohio and we had a really great yard. It was about 3/4 of an acre which was big enough to play around in, yet easy enough to mow and care for. What was great about the house was that we were at the end of a street and our backyard opened up into a large field. Part of the year it was filled with that year’s crop (corn, beans, scrub during off years) and also cows. I don’t like cows for any particular reason, (my dog was a different story – he loved to provoke them)  but I still remember when we first walked into the house for the first time they were passing by and we could see them through the open windows. There was something about the open windows in the fall, cool breeze and the cows grazing in the back yard that just sold us. It was very hard to give up the privacy and the view from our deck but we eventually outgrew the house and had to move. Our backyard now is nice but the view is lacking compared to the old pad. I guess there’s one positive – no cow odors wafting throughout the house in the fall.

Big Snowy Barn and baby barn

This barn is located in North Canton Ohio. I drove down – I still drive down – this street at least a couple times a week. So, one day during a windy winter day I happened to have my camera with me. It was a crisp winter day with a fresh snow fall and this white barn looked very interesting against the snow and stark winter sky. I think it was the contrast of the white snow and barn against the dark black roof of the building that caught my eye. It was very dramatic. It might sound weird but this image reminds me of a mother and baby – like a horse and it’s colt holding close to keep warm during a winter storm.
