Abandoned farmhouse in Kentucky

Sorry for the absence lately, I’ve been in high gear shooting weddings and getting albums together for clients…..but soon the boudoir and nude photoshoot time will start, and this one particular location I plan on doing just that, with. 🙂 I went to Southern Kentucky, about 45 minutes from where I live in Nashville to visit a friend….we went exploring a little, showing him my Fuji mirrorless camera system he expressed interest in. So he showed me the abandoned farmhouse where his grandparents and uncle lived. It just got too eaten up with termites and roof / foundation problems they had to move out of it. But it’s got such rich character and history, I took it all in when we arrived and thought of what happened there in days gone by. People working the fields, keeping up the house, working in the workshop, etc. In simple times with no internet and cell phones, just country living. So, then I began to vision how I wanted others to see this wonderful architecture masterpiece as seen through my eyes. So it began.

This was an old workshop behind the house, and I managed to get the inside of it, as light barely peeked through. farm house

Now for the farm house! I plan on doing a fine art nude photoshoot and perhaps some conceptual long exposure photos there with a model so I can update my work. Therefore showing more diversity to private clients who want nude or boudoir photography done 🙂 Stay tuned.

Seeking shelter from the rain

i promise I will get back to posting nude and boudoir photography soon….with the heat, that has been quiet but I’m in the thick of wedding photography season. Several shoots in the works for the Fall. I was out today on the motorcycle, and unexpectedly was caught in an afternoon shower. I was in an industrial, almost ghost town area of Nashville…There isn’t much but some industrial stuff and through traffic through there, maybe that’s why I like it, and even photographed some buildings in that area, LOL.

I decided to get under the roof of an abandoned gas station pump area, seeking shelter from the rain. It was roped off. There was a guy standing under the roof and he lifted the rope for me to get in. I said thanks, and cooled my heels for a bit until the rain passed. He was on foot, which I wondered about, there are no bus stops near there and there is not usually much foot traffic through there. They say don’t talk to strangers, sometimes it’s the only way to learn and keep your mind open. He was in his late 20’s I’d say, first assumption he could have been a drifter, or slightly down on his luck maybe. I finally asked him, what brings you to this unlikely side of town, on foot? He said there was a Mexican Supermercado nearby that had great tacos. He had the bus stop at the stop nearest this little market, and this was how he felt healing and enjoyed his day off from work. I can relate. It’s good to keep your senses open and notice up close what’s around you. That was about it, the rain was fading and we went our separate ways. Now I know a new place to get good tacos 🙂
