Afternoon at Thaler's

This shot was taken on a sunny, warm, spring afternoon at the Thaler Dairy Farm.

I like how the Calf portraits are off center somehow making them seem more candid and less posed.

I discoverde your site some weeks a go. You have a great portfolio. I love the warm colors of the two pictures in the bottom. Very Good. :)

Love Calf II, what a face.

It's almost like I can smell the manure.... wait a minute, I can! (The farm up the street did the same thing yesterday.)

Those calf portraits are really touching. Perhaps you've opened up a new niche market for yourself, k.

I love how Calf 1 looks like it was hit by some of that flying manure :)
Houser's right you've got a real sensibility for shooting animals.

I love watching Jakey work! Calf II is a great example of the power of negative space. The manure spreading photo really makes me laugh - when people move out here from the city to the large new homes that line the farmers fields, they have some kind of romanticized vision of the country. It's downright hard work, and the smell of manure spreading is always a surprise to them!

These make me nostalgic for the many years I helped my Grandfather spread the manure in the Spring. The calf shots remind me of how the new calves are always so curious and playful. Unfortunately he passed away before I got into photography :-(

Kat, love these photos. Not only is your blog good, but outstandingly consistent at being so! I'm a regular Durham Township junkie and you're the only one to blame. Keep it up, and I'll keep coming back again and again!

what a great sampling of life in the country. reminds me of MY childhood, too. (No, I didn't grow up in the city!)

Lovely shots, Jakey running has all these beautiful tones. Gorgeous.

Shane, How do you get a cow to pose? :P
