Rural Life


{Photography.27.1}: Kai Hagen {kai} Sat, 09 Aug 2003 23:33:31 CDT (HTML)

It took me a little while to realize that we need this topic.

Plenty of rural images don't fit either the "Urban Life and Cityscapes" or "The Natural Landscape " topics - farms, barns, cows, pastures, small villages, roadside stands, orchards, and a lot more.

Here is one to kick things off...a very rural and old church in southern Minnesota farm country. Taken this evening, just before the sun disappeared behind a bank of clouds.

That's a classic, Kai. Brings back memories for me.

Thanks, Diane.

Small clarification: When she says "web page," she means any web server (doesn't have to be on a page, as it were. Just an image file on the web.

but, in any problem...just g

I don't have that.  Will we be able to post directly soon?  It's a
bit cumbersome to have to go through someone.

Does your ISP give you some storage space?

I'm beginning to think that the MSN one won't post pictures, only the
whole page, which would be a bummer.

{Photography.27.11}: Which Hazel? {hazel2} Sun, 10 Aug 2003 23:34:24 CDT (5 lines)

Most ISP's give you some free storage space, Frank, and will give you
the info you need to upload images to it. Then you just use an HTML
tag to creat a link to your server where the image is stored. It's
really very easy - learning curve of about 5 minutes, even if you
don't know HTML.


{Photography.27.12}: Kai Hagen {kai} Mon, 11 Aug 2003 02:19:25 CDT (HTML) think of e-mailing me as a temporary measure, that will be solved that way, or with a topic in the Gallery subforum (where you would be able to attach images yourself).

On the subject of rural life...I've been taking a lot of farm pictures near home this year. Here is one of my favorites, so far...

That's a beaut, Kai.

No billboards...neon....road signs....litter.....just the good stuff.

Perfectly proportioned, too, vertically and horizontally. All in


{Photography.27.14}: Which Hazel? {hazel2} Mon, 11 Aug 2003 11:26:29 CDT (3 lines)

Yep, not a fence in sight. I love it. (It's almost impossible to take
pics like this in California unless you tresspass.) I really like that
the fog blurs the horizon line.


{Photography.27.15}: Mapei {mapei} Mon, 11 Aug 2003 12:42:08 CDT (4 lines)

Love the shot, Kai.

Back to technicals: My ISP has a photo space, but it isn't a public
space.  I have to specify who can look.  Does that matter?


{Photography.27.16}: Judy Johnson {judy} Mon, 11 Aug 2003 13:40:18 CDT (1 line)

Beautiful, Kai. Takes me right to daydreamland....


{Photography.27.17}: Cleophus {cleophus} Mon, 11 Aug 2003 16:04:21 CDT (2 lines)

And the way the fog diffuses the light over the whole photo.
Awesome, Kai!


{Photography.27.18}: Tom Coleman {tomcoleman} Mon, 11 Aug 2003 16:31:46 CDT (HTML)

Wow- I saw just such a scene this morning on my way up U.S. 15 from Frederick, Kai. Very nice.


{Photography.27.19}: Kai Hagen {kai} Tue, 12 Aug 2003 10:17:41 CDT (HTML)

Thanks, guys.

You probably saw the very same farm, Tom. This one is along Highway 15, north of Frederick. Actually, it is the very next farm up the road from the one above.

{Photography.27.20}: Tom Coleman {tomcoleman} Tue, 12 Aug 2003 10:23:42 CDT (HTML)

Nice color and texture there.. I shoulda got a picture myself- yesterday morning the fog was a belt around the base of the mountain. Very cool.


{Photography.27.21}: image from Frank {kai} Wed, 13 Aug 2003 01:20:31 CDT (HTML)

...and not uncommon.

Many days we drive from clear and sunny down into morning fog in the valley...or from fogbound to clear visibility driving the same stretch.

Here are two nice pictures from Frank

Frank: "The sheep is from the Connemara region of County Galway, Ireland. "

{Photography.27.22}: also from Frank {kai} Wed, 13 Aug 2003 01:22:48 CDT (HTML)

Frank: "The scene with the road is from the Loire Valley, taken on a cycling trip."

Okay, Frank, that last image did it: I'm officially jealous!


{Photography.27.24}: Judy Johnson {judy} Wed, 13 Aug 2003 12:23:03 CDT (1 line)

Both very evocative, Frank.


{Photography.27.25}: Mapei {mapei} Wed, 13 Aug 2003 13:32:41 CDT (8 lines)

Thanks.  They are very evocative to me as well.  I can conjure up
those moments and those trips quite fully when I engage them.  The
cycling photo was one of my favorites of that trip because it
emphasized the road we were riding on.  We had just come up the other
side of that hill and were about to dscent into the valley.

I think it's too hot to be in France but a misty day in County Galway
seems pretty appealing right now!
