photoblog image Jamie's Farm #1

Jamie's Farm #1

One of my Camera Club members runs a farm and in June some of us members spent an evening there with our cameras.

The farmhouse is typical of many in my area of Leicestershire, but at least it comes with all mod cons. such as satellite dishes. 

Needless to say, as with most farms, there are always items of plant standing about in the fields, indeed Jamie tells me he has 32 trailers like the one on the left, imagine coming up behind that lot in convoy down a country road with no passing places!

One of the great attractions of old farms everywhere is their collection of pre-loved implements...they look wonderful part-hidden in the grass.
Brian Walbey: Jamie has actually been through quite a tidying up exercise since an earlier visit, this is tidy.
lovely spot
well taken
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rob.
Nice image, Brian. The agricultural plant really makes the image, but I also love the grasses in the foreground. (:o)
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rosalyn. They are quite attractive grasses in this part of the farm.

A very typical farmscape Brian: the semi-abandoned junk always intrigues
Brian Walbey: He's had a tidy up over recent times Chris, this is tidy!

very different to our farm houses smile, except for the "retired" machinery lying around
Brian Walbey: Old plant seems to be every farmers "hobby" Tony.

32??? That sounds like overkill to me, Brian. grin But how fun as a photo op.
Brian Walbey: It was a good night out with my fellow club members Ginnie, we'd had a barbecue at the farm the week before.
A rustic unponsey farm, love it Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad, Jamie would be pleased to hear about your "unponsey" comment.
32?? Wow! Would be quite an achievement if you got that convoy on the road to photograph, Brian!!
Brian Walbey: If they were ina convoy I would want to be on another road Marion!

Fab photo Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks vintage.
Is there such a thing as a tidy farm?
Brian Walbey: Well it is tidier than it used to be.

I'm always amazed about the amount of farm machinery that just seemingly gets abandoned to rot away. Interesting to see two satellite dishes ont he house.
Brian Walbey: Yes most farms have a disused plant area don't they.
I would imagine a great place for a photo shoot Brian.
Brian Walbey: We had a good shoot Ron although the light fell quite quickly for photographic purposes.

I like it Brian

richard
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
I live in country lanes, it would drive me nuts with that lot coming up and down lol smile
Brian Walbey: Jamie goes miles on his tractor I believe Linda, I have heard him talk of going to Grantham and this is only just outside Loughborough at Burton-on-the Wolds.
I hope this is the start of a tour of Jamie's farm The photo club version of The Archers, perhaps?
Brian Walbey: A short tour with a few selected bits and a "horror" image on Friday Sheila.

Pretty typical farmhouse, as you say, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I suspect it has been around a long time Tom.
as you say lots of farms are like this with gear all ove rhte place, it makes you wonder how they remember where it was all left
Brian Walbey: I reckon most of the time they just forget and go out and buy a new whatever it is Tom.
Looks like they need a couple of goats Brian
Brian Walbey: There were some sheep about Janet, just out of picture.
I love these sort of places, nice to have the room to leave things laying around for photographers smile
Brian Walbey: Jamie had some good bits laying about for us John.
