When I was home a few weeks ago, I went to visit my uncle to see how the harvesting was going. My dad was there, because he helps out a lot. Dad does most of the harvesting, because my uncle is old and not comfortable doing it. I brought my camera because I wanted to capture these moments. 80 years ahead some will maybe look at these photos and say ‘that’s how we did it back in the days’. I also took photos so I can compile a new calendar for my uncle when the new years arrive. The last years I’ve made him a calendar with photos from his farm or things/places nearby. He loves them and therefore I keep doing it. It’s a nice Christmas gift. Last year he got a whole book with photographs. I won’t be doing that this year – a calendar will do.
A while ago I visted my uncles farm. He’s 76 years old, but I sometimes see him as less than 70. Too me he’s always been a ‘young’ man. It’s strange to think that’s he’s slowly getting 80. He is holding up quite well, working a lot in my opinion. Things are not as it used to be though and he needs help on his farm. So when I visited his farm a month ago or so, I was there to help him out (my parents too) with a patch of overgrown grass. We worked a lot. In addition to work I took some photos around the farm. I always bring my camera, where every I go. You never know when something great turns up that you need to photograph.
Here are a few photos from that day. Enjoy.
