As a photographer I feel it is important to record a vision of what life is like at that moment in time. For me recording our farming and ranching history by photographing old barns and farmhouses is an important legacy to leave to future generations. I try to capture the essence of the buildings to draw the viewer into wondering what it was like to live when the building was new.
