Down on the Farm

So sorry for falling down on the job folks. For me a two week gap in blogging is really inexcusable, but between being involved in the two shows that went up last month and traveling again, this time to a completely different part of Canada, i have just let it slip a bit.
So yes, Canada for Canadian Thanksgiving. Yes Gladys, they do have a Thanksgiving up here, it is in October instead of November and it has nothing to do with made up stories about Pilgrims and Native Americans sitting down together for a meal of wild turkey and maize, watching endless games of American Football or planning your shopping mall mode of attack for Black Friday the next day. But like the American holiday it does have everything to do with families and we have been road tripping along the 401 visiting with friends and family and enjoying the splendor of the great, not yet white north.
Today's offerings were shot at my cousins (by marriage) Erika & Andrew's place, an old farmhouse in Yarker near Kingston. So much of my lens attention this trip has been focussed on all the family kids (you may see a few of those eventually) and other relatives at these holiday gatherings, but i found a moment of solitude to walk on the back end of the property on an unusually warm and sunny autumn afternoon and hope you will like the results. :-)
