By the time you get through all these other photographer's links, you probably won't even look at my post.
This post is basically a tribute to my high school years. This is what we did (and apparently still do, at least when I'm back in KS). We're farm kids and we do farm kid shit like get drunk on Budweiser, work on classic cars, rip shit up on motorcycles (usually while we're drunk), and harvest fresh vegetables out of the 2 acre garden at 3 in the morning. You know, just typical farm kid shit in a place where quite frankly, there is nothing else to do.
Over the last year I have shifted my focus in photography more towards people and documenting things, something I wish I had started learning to do a long time ago. When I think of periods of my life that weren't documented, it really kinda bums me out a little bit. I believe this series of photos is a perfect representation of what I enjoy the most in photography right here and now, capturing the things that are happening in those fleeting moments.
These photos are presented raw, uncropped just the way they were shot when I was all drunk behind the lens, all with the same edit preset from VSCO 05 - Fuji - Agfa Vista 100 +++ that I really thought captured their mood accurately.
This is LIFE in Kansas on the farm, in the shop, in the country, and in the lives of the few good friends I still have there. Sorry, I couldn't cut it down to 10, I did my best. There were actually 20 that I really wanted to post but these are them.
I'll keep this one short and sweet this month but before that, here on my other compadres that post photos like me for this here little photo group. We have some new members too, so the list is getting longer but don't fret, it's totally worth it.
Onto my photos. As many of you have noticed, I never post photos of family, babies, gushy stuff like the rest of the group does but this month I finally have my opportunity to do just that. This past weekend, I have been back in my hometown of Colby, KS to celebrate all of my nieces and nephews birthdays and even had the opportunity to meet a couple of the new ones for the very first time.
The family as a whole hadn't been all together like this is more than 10 years.
Catch ya on the flip.
