Artist's Description

This is a window in Harold Haupt’s barn. I had photographed this barn from the road several times. One day a saw a gentleman in the yard of the house adjacent to the barn and drove in to say hi. I asked if I could photograph some around his property. At first he explained he had a Dr. appointment that afternoon but I was welcome to be on his property to photograph his barn. Well, after asking about a couple of things, Harold ended up spending about an hour with me. He showed me all through the barn including a 52" saw mill! He took time to uncover old pieces of equipment including a couple of 1950’s Farmall tractors. The broom shot as well as this one came from that trip, and I have a couple more that I will be posting. Harold is the fourth generation to own the farm. It dates back to just after the Civil War and his Great Grandfather acquired it in the 1880’s. He is a widower but his children live near-by. There is a sub-division of maybe 10 to 12 years old in back of his property that was carved from the farm. His children have homes in that sub-division. I printed up four shots of the work I did that day and put them in one of those multi-opening frames and took to him a couple of weeks later. I think he liked them. That’s one of the things I love about photography. It is more or less a universal language, not just between nationalities, but between lifestyles as well.
