Just got back from a trip to visit my parents in Prescott, Arizona. We took the Amtrak Coast Starlight down, and this is one of the shots from the train. As we were approaching, I saw the tan horse walking up to the fence to meet the black and white one and just really liked the scene. Of course, it would have been ideal for them to both be facing me, but being on a moving train kind of limits your options.
The barn that houses the lambs is over 100 years old and you can just feel it when you’re there. The plank floors, the large timbers, poor lighting - all of this just adds to the ambiance.
As I wandered around the barn, I found this workbench under a window. A perfect place for a work bench when there is no lighting, right? As I sat and looked at it for a few minutes, I thought of a lot of questions: How long have those things been sitting there? Which are new and which are old? What has this bench been used for over the last 100 years?
I wanted to capture this mystery.
Naturally, I chose black and white and exposed so that you can’t quite make out any details. You can kind of see a bag with writing on it, an electrical junction box, a wooden toolbox, ropes or cord of some sort, and some things on the shelves. But, I would hope that if you do look at this, let your eyes and imagination roam. There are stories to be told.
