Lensbaby on the Farm

I was out at the Folk Tree Lodge yesterday and had time to wander around the farm buildings and visit the horses.  It was a beautiful afternoon, a warm day after a long spell of cold weather.  I was photographing with a Lensbaby Muse which is tricky to focus at the wide open aperture but is really fun for the slices of focus and blur you can work with in camera.  I really enjoy using this lens in strong midday light when I might otherwise be tempted to put away the camera and wait for softer, directional light.

Alvise and Paola were making use of the day and working around the farm.  Alvise was up and down the road hauling with his machinery. The colors of the hard hat and the tractor drew my attention and made good subject matter for a few photographs before I ended up talking to the horses.  They were not as inquisitive as a few weeks ago but still fun to work with.

    The third from the bottom looks like the horse is going through a different dimension!
