saskatchewan homestead

wow, if i was a writer / i'd spin a fine yarn about these two images. i did a road trip down to the homeland (oxbow), to hook up with friends and family for a little boat cruise on the souris river. turns out the boat didn't show, so i had time on my hands. i have driven by this farm a bizillion times (is that how writers articulate)??..... but never pulled in to document. took the time today/ met the owners, heard some great stories. i'll go back and shoot more (and maybe take a writer with me).

ps/i want to do a series on 'clothes lines' someday.
