If you’re anything like me you’re really looking forward to not seeing 50 Shades of Gray that is apparently coming out sometime soon. In fact, I am so excited about not seeing it that I have some time set aside specifically to not see it. I haven’t decided yet what to do with the money I won’t be spending on it.

However, despite my clear distaste for the 50 shades book/movie I’m a huge fan of anything else gray. Especially in photography. I love dismal, depressing, soggy, haunting images. It’s kind of my dirty little secret. And right now the scenery at the farm is so damp and sad and authentic eastern Oregon winter that I just couldn’t help but be inspired to share in my uncommon pleasure. Don’t get me wrong…I really do enjoy photographs of bright cheery sunflowers and beautiful stalks of golden wheat, (both of which I photograph often on the farm) but doesn’t everyone? It just doesn’t seem all that original.

So here are some lovely shades of gray that will soon give way to rich shades of green then gold, and back to gray.








Stay tuned next week for some red hot Valentine’s dessert inspiration!
