Corny!

Because I am going home for the long weekend, I am posting a picture of my grandparent's farm. I have spent many a happy hour roaming these acres, and plan to spend a few more here shortly.


I am lucky to have been born into a gifted and camera-crazy family. Both my father and my uncle are crack photographers, and both have taken many wonderful images throughout the years of their time on "the farm". I cannot tell you if the vintage shot below was taken by my uncle or my father, but I do know that a neighbor took one look at it and said "Corny!".

Thanks for the compliment and as for corny shot, I’m not sure either although when I was into the B&W darkroom thing I shot a lot of stuff like that. Then again so did your dad.

Hope to see ya around this weekend

Sorry if I didn't sent you comment on your pictures this week but I was five days in Alsace for a sales meeting.

Thank you for all your comments this last week.

You come from a family of talented photoguys....maybe it is genetic. That is exactly the same kind of thing you would photograph too.

It's wonderful to have those memories of your grandparents. My grandparents are gone but I remember playing as a young kid on their farm too.

I am almost certain that "Salty" took that one. I can't recall taking it and it looks more like his work.

Nice story Ash. You have a talented family. I don't think you could have gotten away from a camera if you had wanted to!

I enjoyed your shot of Mesa Verde. I plan on spending some time there next week.

what a nice heritage to have! love the corn and the panoramic of the farm......

i have a soft spot in my heart for farms as i was raised on one... seeing photos of them always evoke a bit of nostalgia in me.
