Nice work. The light is amazing, and Sarah is most handsome. Looks like a grand day out.

Stephanie -- You better show some pics--I saw those ones of the little corkscrew thingie in the grass and the rusty door latches. They were great! C'mon, let's have them!

Mr. Bun -- The light was ethereal. It was absolutely perfect--but the temperature could have been about 20 degrees warmer. I've never photographed models so this was a learning experience. Wish you could have been there--besides beautiful models there was an extensive farm operation with rusty vehicles, old farm implements buried in the woods, abandoned buildings, etc. Perfect locale.

The first photo of Ms. Hougland is - well, perfect. I'm curious about the one with the berry and leaf. Is that curlique (sp?) metal or vine? It looks like a spring, but if it's vine, and grown rather than made - well. Just remarkable.

Linda -- The curlique is actually a wire fence connected to a post. The green coloration comes from lichen and moss. It's been there for a while, and a perfect prop for a falling leaf/berry/twig. I wish we'd had more time to nose around, but as it was I'm grateful for the opportunity to shoot pretty models like Sarah and to meet new photographers. And, of course, to explore the Kansas countryside. Thanks for dropping by.

Tom, I had long hoped to visit your neck of the woods by now, but work conspires to spoil my plans. That definitely looks like my kind of location, though.

Well, Bud, if you ever get the chance we'll manage it come hell or high water. Maybe we'll even see a few rabbits while we're out.
