It’s been a long time since I stayed all night at Mom and Dad’s without Natalie and the kids. I stayed there a couple of nights this week, while I was working on some late night assignments nearby. I got in one night about one o’clock, and just sat on the back porch for a while. My mind was instantly flooded with sights and sounds of growing up on Blackcreek in Clay City. The House Band that night was a group of deep-bar-atoned frogs and other assorted insects. You talk about a great stress reliever! I just sat there and soaked it all in.
The assignment that I was working on was photographing power plants at night for Kentucky Living (coming out in July…I think). I already had my tripod set up for time exposures, so I tried to capture a little bit of the Blackcreek Night. This is a 30 second exposure with the neighbors lights illuminating the hill behind Mom and Dad’s house. It really isn’t all that dark at night.
