The Journey: Generations



This vintage 8mm movie camera was recently passed down from my grandfather to me. It is from the late 1950s and was used film our farm and family. It's the 1st 8mm in my collection and I am so excited to have memory to go with it! When I think of the next generation, I think of hope and opportunity. This quote comes to mind...

"May your walls know joy, may every room hold laughter and every window open to great possibility" - Mary Anne Radmacher-Hershey

The Country: Under the Canopy



This barn sits tucked under the canopy at the end of a field in front of a hillside on our winding road home. It looks much smaller than it is in this photo, because the trees and hill are so tall. If you look closely the below you will see a white door on the front to help put it in perspective. The top didn't come out sharp, so I just played with texture in the blown out sky.


Photoshop Tutorial:

Clouds Sunrise #3 Texture / Multiply Blending Mode / 65%

Apply a layer mask to the cloud texture. Using a soft round brush, brush away texture from all areas except the sky.
