Our friends Chris and Paul live on a small farm near Rice Lake, not far from the small village of Bailieboro, in the direction of Peterborough. We go there each year before Halloween for pumpkin carving, with a big gang of friends, and to eat, drink and hang out. Other times we just show up, perhaps for a game of croquet and a braai (barbecue to my fellow Canadians) and a walk in the fields or along the lanes. These photos – like the picture entitled Farm, near Rice Lake, that I posted yesterday – were taken on our most recent visit, with Boyd and Joanne. Both were taken with the Leica Digilux, processed in Lightroom 6 and Silver Efex Pro, and printed on Ilford paper. Here they are: Paul’s Barn, and Rain, near Rice Lake. I am including the picture of the farm again, so you can see the series. See what you think.
Given the madness in Britain (I have subtracted the word ‘Great’ as it is no longer applicable) and the lunacy in Trumpistan, not to mention some irregular goings on in my own Beloved Country, I give you an image of sanity from my new, adopted home, here in Canada: Farm near Rice Lake, Ontario.
