I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times...Psalms 77: 5

This is one of several practice self portraits that I did for my early morning
light series on September 19, 2011. I haven't shown this particular shot before
and decided to convert it into a sepia tone. The white hat I am wearing
is vintage.

The Road Grader was manufactured in the early 1900's and it came with our hobby farm. It was used in the olden days behind horses to grade country roads.

Thank you so much Donna Mullins for the courtesy of the spotlight!

    Framed wonderfully--dramatic glow of light gives the subject a deep, rich mesmerizing pull--excellent dof and balance--the monotone effect is very unique
