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!

Bothered by Burrs

I took this close-up photograph of a bison. He is looking intently back at me. I thought the bison was covered in regular grasses from manoeuvring his head in the fields and that is sort of true. On closer examination, there are burrs which stick onto the body, fur and clothes. 

I remember as a little girl running through a relative’s farm fields and being so intrigued by these spikey flowery-things only to be horrified when I touched them and they stuck into my fingers and would not let go. I thought “What are these cruel things that look so fascinating and interesting doing?” The thistle hung on and the more I tried to make it come off, the more it stuck into my skin. 

In this picture, the head of the bison has burrs on it, as well as on its sides. The bisons do sometimes roll around on the ground and get covered in this way. As my husband would say, “It is a Beast of Burr-den.”

Painted Horse

Painted Horse

This is a photograph I took of a beautiful Painted Horse in its beautiful surroundings. I like his stance as it is really stoic. 

It reminds me of the song from America called “A Horse with No Name” and written by Dewey Bunnell in the early 1970s. 

“I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name 
It felt good to be out of the rain 
In the desert, you can remember your name 
‘Cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain 
La, la, la, la-la-la, la-la-la, la, la 
La, la, la, la-la-la, la-la-la, la, la” 

According to Wikipedia, “The American Paint Horse (Equus caballus) is a breed of horse that combines both the conformational characteristics of a western stock horse with a pinto spotting pattern of white and dark coat colors.”

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.”

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

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.

Two Bales of Hay

Two Bales of hay

I took this photograph en route from Winnipeg through Teulon to Arborg, Manitoba, Canada. These towns are found in the Interlake area between Lake Winnipeg and Lake Manitoba. 

According to Wikipedia, “Hay is grass, legumes, or other herbaceous plants that have been cut and dried to be stored for use as animal fodder, particularly for large grazing animals raised as livestock, such as cattle, horses, goats, and sheep.”

I like the composition of the two bales of hay in relations to each other. I have made the image a combination of purple and gold colours.

On the Range

Here is a photograph I took of an abandoned old farm house out on the range. It is dramatic with the clouds in the West. It is as if it is brooding with emotion. I also enjoy the perspective of the house in the photograph as a whole.
