Sheep May Safely Graze, Greenstory Farm, East Blue Hill, Maine, MMX
Not far from our new house in East Blue Hill, Maine is Jay Carter Road, a long dirt track leading to several houses and farms along the West side of McHeard Stream. One farm a short distance down the road is called Greenstory, and they raise sheep. I shot this small flock one morning, trying different lenses and two different cameras, but the sheep became disinterested in me rather quickly. As a result, the early diptychs of these ovines were much better because the sheep were still looking on me with some curiosity, perhaps expecting a treat. I took the start of my title from the J.S. Bach cantata.
