The Way Back Machine
The time: April 2005
The place: Northern Illinois
Today we traveling just over four years back in time. April 2005 marks the time when I started my photoblog. This is the first photo posted and I believe this property is somehow still standing.
There was an earlier attempt at blogging in which I assumed a fictitious persona known as "Ruby". It was a bit of fun because I could create characters and voice my opinions.
RUBY'S ALL AMERICAN BAR AND GRILL
Yes, that's me all dolled up for the photo shoot, holding one of the chihuahuas. Ruby was fun!
My very first blog was a short-lived project called, Freudian Pink Slip, in which I focused on my journey through depression.
FREUDIAN PINK SLIP
After awhile, it became more and more difficult to post a photo a day on The Farmer's Wife. I think I've photographed every barn and outbuilding in the county. That's not true, but you get the idea.
It was at this point that I decided to move inside and do some cooking, sewing and to take you on some small adventures.
Thanks for coming along for the ride.
Note to reader Marfa: Check out The Farmer's Wife because it contains examples of alot of the photography composition assignments you are currently working on. At that point in time I was doing the same, studying photography and learning some rules of composition.
