Few more from the farm.
Making haystacks, roasting lamb and some very ornery sheep. They (the sheep) did not appreciate my attempts to photograph them. From a distance, I might add.
A few more pictures of the mountain farm in Bosnia.
This little community consists of about 10 or so families. They are all self-sufficient by living off the foods they grow and animals they raise. Each family makes their own bread, cheese and brandy and shares with the other families in the community. They rarely head down the mountain into the town for supplies.
When I arrived at this farm, I passed the car below stuck on the curve. The car had broken down down on the way up the mountain a few days prior to my arrival. On my last day on the farm, members of the community worked together to get the car running and back up to the owner’s farm.
So, I thought I’d mix things up a bit and post some different photographs this week. I was going to start posting some of my old black and white photography until my scanner decided to be difficult. Since Mr. Scanner wants to challenge me, I’ll post some digital photographs in the meantime.
This next series of photograghs were taken on a mountain farm in Bosnia. Despite all the wars in recent years, Bosnia remains a very beautiful country. It’s geography and climate reminds me of British Columbia. The landscapes are quite stunning.
