April- Person, Place & Thing

chriswithportablelumbermill-optPerson- Chris (left) and a helper began the long, arduous task of clearing some trees on our property for a future structure. Then he used his portable mill to cut up the lumber for interior planking.

antiquesign-ooptThing- I’ve come across quite a few antique signs that I’d love to display in our farmhouse kitchen. But only one could fit. This sign (above) didn’t make the cut.

Inspired By…

…’Domestic Landscapes‘ Series By Bert Teunissen.

I’m absolutely captivated by this whole series of images done by Bert Teunissen. On the surface it’s just portraits of people in their homes. But it goes beyond that. Teunissen has created a unique album of the human family (mostly seniors from all over the world) in the intimacy of their own homes. The photos are touching and sometimes sad as we see a way of life losing ground to the future. Make sure to check his archive.

Teunissen’s image above was the inspiration behind my own photo below.
