A Field!

There is this area off to the side of the road leading out of our neighborhood which has really tall grass and some trees.  I’ve wondered more than a few times how it would look if I photographed the kids out there, but I’ve been thinking that there are too many roads, vehicles, power lines, and other such distractions in the way for it to really work.  Then I read this blog post and was determined to see how this neighborhood area would look if I framed my shots just right.  I decided that the next early weekend morning Henry and I were both up we were going to try out the spot.

This past Saturday, Henry got up long before everyone else so I quickly loaded us up to head to the spot.  I wish I would have spent a little more time getting him “ready” for photographs, but I was really just looking for some test shots to see if I could make this intersection in our neighborhood look like an isolated field.

And you know what, it really worked.  It seriously looked like a field in the middle of nowhere. . . .


The biggest problem was that 7:15 a.m. was a little late this time of year to get the type of sun I envisioned.  The shots ended up being a bit more hazy than I typically like.  I’m thinking that I’ll plan a photo session with all 4 kids in the “field” sometime later this fall!!

Awesome! I'm all for things like this. If you knew some of the nonsense going on outside the frame of some of the pictures I post on facebook you would laugh. :)

These are awesome, and I love the haze! And how convenient that you didn't actually have to trek out to the middle of nowhere to get them!
