On our last day in Ludlow, Jeremy and I take some of the backdrop paper up the mountain and put it to use. The plan was to use the backdrop to isolate out natural objects, but there was a strange tonal and material syncrony between the trees, the low light, and the pale green paper (made in part, of course, from trees). So eventually, we dragged the paper down the hill as it gathered dirt and imrpints of rocks.

On a rainy Saturday morning, we can't get up the mountain because of the mud sliding down the hill from the new developments. Instead, I photograph the natural patterns inside the house while my grandma bakes shortcake and works on a crossword. It is one of those wonderful mornings that seems to last all day. Eventually, we get restless and drive to the next exit on the Pike (Chicopee) to check email at Starbucks.

After driving three days in constant rain and making a quick detour to Maine, we arrived in Hopkinton just in time to see the tree behind my Aunt's barn get struck by lightening. I spent the following day photographing her house, the barn and the graveyard across the street. I use the photographs to collect and document patterns. The barn is 215 years old. The images posted are the outside and inside of the barn.
