Preston's trip to O-H-I-O

PRS trip to Ohio

  •  
    I chose to go black and white for most photos on this trip. I have never been anywhere near a farm, but there is something that I really enjoy about being in this part of the country. For details visit my blog page and look for the "O-H-I-O" entries.

    There is corn everywhere. This is feed corn, not the sweet corn that we enjoy at dinner.
  •  
    I took this for no particular reason. I just thought it looked cool.
  •  
    I don't think this gal won any ribbons, but she was exceptionally cooperative for photo purposes. In other words, she stood still and did not take a dump on my shoes.
  •  
    Here's my wife's dad and mom. Sweet, sweet people.
  •  
    Here's my niece Ellen.

    My brother-in-law Rodney who, I have come to realize, is unofficially in-charge of nearly everything in about two or three counties. He is one best guys I know. I regret that I can't spend more time with him...we are kindred spirits.

    This is "penning". In this case one of Ellen's pigs got selected for the final round of judging and her sister, Anna, and her brother, Robert, are waiting to help out. I have no clue who the guy is standing off to the right. The family in the very back just stared the entire fair.

    Me and my new best friend, John Deere.

    This is part of the field that John and I took on together.

    Here's a handful of color photos starting with a look at part of the farm land that my in-laws look over each day.

    Here's sunset in another direction.

    While other crops are grown in the area, here it's corn as far as the eye can see.

    Yes, it's that tall because I am about 6'5" and I have the camera above my head. I don't know if you can appreciate how beautiful and serene this is, but I can fully understand why when Roy built in, they came to play baseball in the midst of the corn.
