Farmer Friend


(Text reposted from October 4, 2009)

I pass by these little shacks during my daily commute. Last week I saw the farmer milling around, so I stopped and asked him if could take some photos on his land. He was an older fellow...say 80-years-old. A big smile took over his face. He tried to tame his smile, but he couldn't. Then he said, "You can take photos any time you like." It was almost as if my wish to take photos confirmed that he had something beautiful. Intuitively, he *knew* he had something beautiful, but my question was confirmation and he couldn't contain his smile. I instantly adored him. The whole experience made my day.

I spent 45 minutes clicking away, being careful not to damage his soybeans. I'll drop some prints off the next time I see him outside. And when I do, it will be the best thing that happens to me that day.

A Garden Gift


A couple years ago, a colleague of mine asked if I would capture a sunflower photo that she could display in her home. I tried once or twice, but was never entirely happy with my efforts. I had this "assignment" rolling around in my noggin for a year or more. Then one day I discovered a beautiful sunflower garden owned and lovingly cared for by this beautiful lady.

Thank you, Mrs. Biver, for the gift of your garden. I hope you know that you brighten the lives of hundreds of people every single day as they drive by your treasure.
