Captured in the rays of the sun

Captured in the rays of the sun “I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait till oil and coal run out before we tackle that.” - Thomas A. Edison West of Sublette, Illinois and north of Ohio, Illinois there is a wind farm. I enjoy going out during sunrises and sunsets to capture the beauty of the landscape. The wind turbines silhouetted against the sky create an image of man and nature working together to create energy. Throughout rural Central Illinois windfarms are springing up across farmlands creating renewable energy while still creating the food we need to survive.

Lost antiques concealed in a dilapidated barn

Lost antiques concealed in a dilapidated barn Where the fun things about being a freelance photographer is finding lost treasures. While out scouting for when Wally was coming up for a couple of days. While running between Gibson City and Paxton, Illinois. I spotted 3 barns that were in sad condition, I made a U-turn and went down the road and with my lock, the farmer was actually there, he no longer lived there. He was, surprised when I pulled in, I handed him my card and telling them a little bit about what Wally and I do in general. I asked if it was okay to walk around and photograph the barns and the outbuildings and everything else that was around. He shook his can understand what was so interesting. He then said sure, go ahead, his farm had so much photographic treasures. I spent almost 3 hours photographing, the next day when Wally came up. We made a beeline to the farm, and spent some time photographing all over the place. One of the great finds was this old car sitting in a dilapidated barn, the car had sunk down to his axles, but it sure had character. I hope you enjoy dealing this relic of a bygone day.

It does bring a calming mood to your soul knowing that you are here among fellow veterans, with the knowledge that some died…
