Day 281 - An urban farm
In this photograph, I tried to capture that fabulous tree and the beautiful farm house while framing out the city that's encroaching on all sides. I think I did a good job of it. This looks like a traditional farm with no real surprises. But what you don't see in this shot is the new subdivision that has been built just outside the frame to the left, the older neighbourhood that borders the farm just to the right of the house and the completely developed area that separates the front of the farm house from the Saint John River probably a kilometre away.
On a photographic note, check out the difference in the colours between the top and bottom photos. I'm impressed with how much deeper the blue of the sky and the green of the lawn became in the lower shot simply because I upped the shutter speed a little, allowing in slightly less light so that today's bright sunshine wasn't able to bleed some of the colour away.
