Dairy weather

I looked over the Edward Weston Exhibit for a second time and decided that I have work to do and that encompassed another trip around the countryside, I went to the exhibit expecting to spend a half hour looking at old photos and ended up studying art for over an hour each for two sessions. This time out of town, As I wandered around the Broley barn on a hot day (we've already set records for 100s), I caught sight of the old dairying operation in the attached shed with weather gathering overhead and it seems that my interest has returned to the skies and I thought I could do something with it. The sky does look threatening for later on! I had already shot pictures of the door on the east side and I thought I'd look around the back again. I found a perfect crop of chokecherries blocking the access on the far side. I got side tracked by the chokecherries and visited again to haul in the crop before the weather cools in the fall. This is weeks early this year; look at the July grasses. I found a bumper crop of other chokecherries west of town and have already alerted the gang. I scrambled this week to pick, collect the tools I needed and finish up a bunch of juice that sits in the fridge and I also jellyed up one batch. Thank goodness I gave the first batch away. Hundred degree heat is a good reason to be inside.


I went out again today but hundred degree heat is a bit withering and I have not yet even looked at my camera card. Eddie just called about a project that he has in mind for tomorrow so I have my battery on the charger and I might have to move and categorize the shoots I have on the card. I heard it said that testosterone levels go up in this heat. Perhaps when folks can't even write bad reviews about movies but can storm theaters with assault gear. I guess tomorrows road trip away from Denver is not a bad idea. Otherwise, I'll stay in the air conditioning this weekend.
