Doth the plowman open and break the clods of his ground? Isaiah 28: 24

Denver, one of my husband's older brother's passed away yesterday at age 79 and I shot this photo of him in 1989...Denver was a bachelor and a bit of a loner... He didn't get on very many family photographs, but I remember he liked this picture in particular, that I gave him a copy of years ago...Farming was a part of him and what he best loved to do. I think I caught the essence of who he was in this candid that I shot with a cheaply priced point and shoot film Yashica camera that I had bought that year... The sea gulls were flying in abundance that day in the plowed field and I felt compelled to shoot this peaceful scene.

The print is getting old and faded and had to work with it in photoshop to deepen the tones. I had the 11x14 print behind glass in a frame and I used my digital camera to shoot a picture of the picture so it is not of the sharpest quality.

    This is so personal, poignant and well done!! Reminds me of the covers of Progressive Farmer magazine in the 1950s. Didn't realize that you had seagulls that far inland@
