Bins Galore

Bins Galore

I like the bins that line the prairie landscape. It is reminiscent of the storing and packaging up of important goods that have taken time and space to harvest or reap. It has taken a lot of effort on the farmers’ part to seed and help grow the crops. I am thankful to the farmers for all their hard work because without them, life would be so much harder. 

I took this picture near Île-des-Chênes, Manitoba which is south of the City of Winnipeg. The town is an unincorporated community in the Rural Municipality of Richot. According to its website, “This francophone town was settled in the mid-nineteenth century in an area prolific with oak trees, and that’s where the town got its name, which translates to Oak Island.”

Golden Harvest

Golden Harvest

This photograph is entitled “Golden Harvest.” I wanted us to remember the good times of harvesting. 

We are in winter now where life is dormant and in hibernation mode. In spring, we will plant the seeds and in summer, we will tend and nurture them. In autumn, we will harvest the goods. It is a yearly cycle and routine which we can endeavour to pattern our lives around. We are now enjoying the produce of our efforts with these times of celebration. This is not a typical image for this time of year but it is my “Horn of Plenty” and I hope you enjoy and appreciate the golden harvest we are enjoying at Christmas time.

Two Times Three

Two Times Three

It may seem to be a simple math problem but I am simply observing that there are two sets of three bins. They are symmetrical and cylindrical and keep the crops in a safe way. There are the three that are on the left-hand side, smaller than the ones on the right-hand side that are much taller and look as if they will go up in the air like rockets. 

I took this picture near Île-des-Chênes, Manitoba which is south of the City of Winnipeg. The town is an unincorporated community in the Rural Municipality of Richot. According to its website, “This francophone town was settled in the mid-nineteenth century in an area prolific with oak trees, and that’s where the town got its name, which translates to Oak Island.”

Cattle Farm

Cattle Farm

This is a photograph that I took of a cattle farm. There are many cows but one in particular has noticed me and is taking note. I don’t know if he is saying “Hello!” or “Don’t come any closer!” 

The red barn has seen better days because it is worn and weathered. It needs a fresh coat of paint. 

I have made it into a black and white photograph. The clouds look as if they are to open up and pour down some rain. 

I am thankful to all the farmers for producing our food especially in this time of corona virus. I have much gratitude for all those who work so hard to keep our community healthy. Thanks so much!

Mom and Son

Mom and Son

Today is a special day in that it is my son’s birthday. I have chosen this photograph of two bison as it represents the Mom who is nearby whereas her son is exploring the world around him. It is representative of me and my son. He is, in fact, a fully grown and a good man but I will always be his Mom. 

Happy Birthday to my son Kyle!

Duo Bins

Duo Bins

I took this photograph in the Interlake area of Manitoba. There are two grain bins with the fields behind them. I like the black and white effect of the steel grain bins. At this time of year, they are full and waiting for the right time to go to market and then travel around the world to feed people.  

According to Sciencing website, “In most silos, gravity causes grain to flow from the top of the silo and out through an opening at the bottom near the center. At that opening, a machine called an auger transports the grain to a vehicle or another grain storage facility. As grain flows through the auger, it forms a funnel shape at the top of the silo.”

Winter’s Coming

I know we have some time left but based on the colder temperatures and more precipitation we have had lately, we will be in winter sometime soon. The crops have already been harvested and only stubble remains in the fields.  

The hay bales have been processed and soon there will be a layer of snow on it. There is fun in the winter time to be had though too. It is something you learn to encompass in your life and live with the best you can. Time to prepare.

Pump It Up

I don’t know what it is about old-fashioned water hand pumps, but I really, really like them. I remember trying (playing) with them when I was a little kid. It was fun to see that if you worked at it really hard, it would produce water (results). 

From the MotherEarthNews website, “The pump principle has changed little since its inception, whether for the piston pump invented in 275 BC by Ctesibius, or the rope pump invented in China during the 1st century BC. Hand pumps were still commonly used in the countryside of the United States and Europe in the 19th century.”

Dark Farmland

I took this photograph because I liked the composition of the farm house, the grain bin and the hay bale. I have created a digital artwork like a painting from it using the colours present in the picture. It is taking the best of black and white while highlighting it with colours as well. 

It seems like there are dark clouds in the background while sunlight still shines on the foreground. I feel there is a beauty despite it being a gloomy and sulky image. Where there is darkness, there is also a glimmer of hope. 

It was taken in the Interlake area of Manitoba.

Blue Door

I took this photograph of a few outcrop buildings in the prairie fields of rural Manitoba. I found it interesting because it had a blue door naturally. I have made the image black and white so that it stands out even more. 

It was found on a farm in the Rural Municipality of Morris south of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I hope you like it and find it an interesting shot.
