Three more shots from a weekend out in the country. All near Stafford, Kansas.
Below – many non-irrigated corn fields are a loss due to the drought.
I was out visiting my eccentric 92 year old grandmother for a long weekend out in the country in Stafford Kansas, a four hour drive southwest of Kansas City. Maybe another post with more photos later on. All the shots in this post were with the pairing of my Canon 5D Mark II with my Canon 16-35 L II wide angle lens.
Over the Easter weekend I took some extra time off and went out to my grandma’s place in central Kansas. This shot was taken Sunday at dusk north of Stafford Kansas halfway to Ellinwood in a cluster of trees around a dirt road that I could see from the paved two-lane highway. The deer were hopping around a lot that night and I had to be careful to not total my car in the process of making it back to Stafford in the dark, as there were several deer witnessed on the side of the road. I just paid off the car too so I’m a little extra suspicious of deer right now when venturing into the country.
Don’t forget – Photo show and sale tomorrow night at The Hook at 45th and State Line in KCMO – see the Facebook page for further information.
I’m posting something a bit abnormal, a wide angle HDR shot of my car’s front passenger side wheel in my grandma’s driveway out in Stafford, Kansas – shot taken on Sunday afternoon. The tire got dirtied up after my fun time careening down a desolate dirt road in the afternoon north of Stafford at about 60 mph in third and fourth gear with the dirt and dust kicked up by the rear of the car. It’s a fun experience rowing through the gears and watching the dirt fly up behind you – a sense of motion and velocity even if it’s just ground based and in a four cylinder car.
There is going to be a photo showing of my stuff at The Hook Gallery and Framing at 1711 W. 45th Street, KCMO at 45th and State Line in that row of art and antique shops coming up this Friday at 7 pm. Come by. CLICK HERE for a map and directions.
