A second version
The photo above, in two versions, was taken in Greenfield on a very cold day last week, around 3:15. I was caught trespassing on a farmer's land as he was driving his truck up the icy driveway. I stuck around to introduce myself, even though my fingers were numb and I was ready to head home. The farmer was suspicious and not at all sure he liked the fact that I was taking pictures of his barn, his house and his land. Then, he smoothed out a bit and told me that the barn below had been moved from the pasture across the road to where it stands today. He raises happy, pasture-fed cows who become dinner for the local health and environmentally conscious folk of western Massachusetts. He talked to me about a lot of things, in fact. Each topic delivered in five-words or less. Then it was time to shake hands and say so long.
The one below was taken just outside of Amherst, Massachusetts, yesterday, near the Friends' Meeting House on route 63, heading north to Montague
