While I have always had a passing interest in photography, it wasn’t until I visited my wife’s parents farm in Chatsworth for the first time that I realized I wanted to push myself beyond simply documenting vacations and towards expressing myself more as an artist. I have a deep passion for the farm and I have really grown as a person and as an artist while wandering about the landscape there. Maybe it’s because I have always felt so welcome and at home there. A few weeks back, Kim and I were up to visit her parents and for the Chatsworth Fall Fair. I took the opportunity to get up and shoot a few longer exposures before the sun came up. What an amazing time to be up and about on the farm. A rooster crowing and the wind was all I could hear. A beautiful solitude, but with family (still sleeping) close by. Just perfect.
