Am I a time traveller? Somehow I arrived at the mid-point for the year a full 2 weeks early. This shoot is for the week of June 12, which is really the 24th or 25th week of 2011, depending on how you count. I haven't figured out where the extra week came from, but I'm not going to fret too much about it.
Chrisitna and I spent our anniversary weekend in Anna, IL at the Davies School Inn. We had a great relaxing weekend. That Sunday, as we drove home through the rolling hills and rich farmland, we pulled over frequently so I could capture shots like the one above.
This particular wheat field was the only one left standing; the rest had apparently been cut down very recently. In fact, if I had come back later the same day I shot this, I fear it would have been cut down as well. I'm noticing a lot of transcience in the things I shoot.
Someone was nice enough to leave a bunch of hay bales near the side of the road for me. I had a particularly hard time finding a good way to compose the shot, but I kind of like the one above.
The rolling hills and quiet country roads of Southern Illinois were a nice place to spend a sunday afternoon and a nice backdrop for some shooting.
And remember, I've compiled all my previous photos of the week in a Flickr set. Click here to view them all.
