Fine Art Photographs of Cows – I recently found myself in Stowe, Vermont for a rainy afternoon. My wife had a conference at the Spruce Lodge and I had the afternoon free. Fall foliage had already come and gone with the last leaves being ripped off by a breezy, stormy day. But I was determined to get out and photograph the beautiful country side around Stowe which includes many fine family farms.
I came across a herd of dairy cows gathering near the farm gate, hoping that it was getting close to milking time. One cow in particular caught my eye and I was able to capture a few nice portraits.
Managing to keep my gear dry and shooting wide open in the dark and gloomy late afternoon cloudy sky, I manage to capture this sweet face in the pasture.
This is a Jersey cow or cattle are a small breed of dairy cattle. Originally bred in the Channel Island of Jersey, the breed is popular for the high butterfat content of its milk and the lower maintenance costs attending its lower body-weight, as well as its genial disposition.
They look a lot different than the type of cow typically raised for beef such as this fine fellow below seen on a small micro farm in Etna, New Hampshire.
These cow portraits in black and white can be found in the extensive portfolios of fine art photographer Edward M. Fielding. Fine art photographs of cows and farms in New England are available as prints, museum quality framed art, canvas prints, wood prints and more as well as on products such as tote bags and decor items such as throw pillows.

Airstream is an American brand of Travel trailers (“caravans” in British English) which are easily recognized by the distinctive shape of their rounded and polished aluminum coachwork. This body shape dates back to the 1930s and is based on designs created by Hawley Bowlus, who had earlier overseen construction of Charles Lindbergh’s aircraft, the Spirit of St. Louis.
Airstream trailers and recreational vehicles are manufactured in Jackson Center, Ohio, USA. The company, now a division of Thor Industries, employs more than 800 people, and is the oldest in the industry.
Meet one of my neighbors! I managed to get this great shot of a beautiful cow when it came over to investigate my little westie dog Tiki. Tiki thinks cows and deer and just about anything with four legs is a big dog that needs to be barked at but these gentle cows just liked to come over and investigate.

Pa’iloa Beach Maui, Hawaii – On the “Road to Hana” there is a special black sand beach called Pa’iloa Beach, and unimaginable beautiful beach with walls of cliffs on two sides and a deep channel leading to a small, deep, beautiful rocky beach of lava rocks and these secret lava tube tunnels.
Hiking trails border the cliffs on both sides leading to incredible views of the beach, the rock formations and of course the amazing ocean waves.
Part of Wai’anapanapa State Park, the beach is the most immediately noticeable feature to the 120-acres that make up Wai’anapanapa State Park. The translation for Wai’anapanapa is “glistening water” or “water flashing rainbow hues”, both of which are accurate in describing the powerful contrast between the black, pebble lava field and the deep blue-greens of the ocean.
Pa’iloa Beach is small with a ocean cave on the east side that can be traveled through to the ocean. There’s also a naturally made lava arch in the water.

About the Road to Hana on the Hawaiian Island of Maui: The Hāna Highway is a 64.4-mile long stretch of Hawaii Routes 36 and 360 which connects Kahului with the town of Hāna in east Maui. On the east after Kalepa Bridge, the highway continues to Kīpahulu as Hawaii Route 31.
The twisty road often has a posted speed limit of 10 miles an hour as it’s multitude of one line bridges create the need for careful driving. Along the way you’ll find beaches, waterfalls, hikes, jungle, scenic overlooks and pure adventure.
If you are new to motor-homing, you’ll soon discover the not so much fun jobs such as dumping the grey water tanks, dumping the black water, filling up the water tank and maybe getting more propane.
Some campgrounds have all of these facilities, others have some but not others. The easiest thing to find is water hoses for filling the fresh water drinking tank and a gas exchange. Most gas stations have gas canister exchanges. Many have washing station with brushes attached to hoses for cleaning off the dirt on your car or camper. Water is typically available at campsites or gas stations.
Grey water which is the water from the sink or shower is typically mild stuff but it does contain grease and laundry detergent (i.e. phosphorous) so it can be dump just anywhere. I ran into one campground that had a black water dump but not a grey water. But a lot of the gas stations have drains appropiate for dumping gray water. Sometimes you can even park over a drain while filling up.
Black water is another matter. We used the toilet in the camper sparingly. Primarily for pee and used the campground toliets or swimming pool facilities for more substantial usage. As a result, our 17 liter little black water tank only needed to be dumped three times in 11 days and even then it was never rally full. (Three adults, using facilities outside the camper as much as possible).
As a result we were not too concerned about finding black water dumping places. We used them when we found a convenient one. It wasn’t until we had to drop off the camper that we had to search around for place to dump our crap. After searching the gas stations around the drop off point in vain, we stumbled on a great website that lists all of the dumping stations on the island:
Some of these location will be at campgrounds, some at gas stations and some like the one we found near the airport and the camper return was a stand along one down near some boat docks.
Low-key lighting is a style of lighting for photography, film or television. It is a necessary element in creating a chiaroscuro effect. Traditional photographic lighting, three-point lighting uses a key light, a fill light, and a back light for illumination. Low-key lighting often uses only one key light, optionally controlled with a fill light or a simple reflector.
Low key light accentuates the contours of the subject by throwing areas into shade while a fill light or reflector may illuminate the shadow areas to control contrast. The relative strength of key-to-fill, known as the lighting ratio, can be measured using a light meter. Low key lighting has a higher lighting ratio, e.g., 8:1, than high-key lighting, which can approach 1:1.
The term “low key” is used in cinematography and photography to refer to any scene with a high lighting ratio, especially if there is a predominance of shadowy areas. It tends to heighten the sense of alienation felt by the viewer, hence is commonly used in film noir and horror genres.
In film, low-key lighting is associated with German Expressionism and later film noir.
Examples of low key black and white photography by fine art photographer Edward M. Fielding
Artists recognized the power of low key lighting long before photographers came around. Painters during the Renaissance and Baroque periods often used a technique known as “chiaroscuro” to achieve a similar dramatic tone for their images. Chiaroscuro comes from the Italian “chiaro” meaning clear/light and “oscuro” meaning obscure/dark.
Chiaroscuro was used not only for drama but also to bring realism to a painting. The varied lighting creates a sense of three dimensional depth that can be quite stunning.
Dark deep shadows and bright highlights require careful lighting techniques, exposure and intense post processing skills to achieve the dramatic look of low key photography.

The concept of a typewriter dates back at least to 1714, when Englishman Henry Mill filed a vaguely-worded patent for “an artificial machine or method for the impressing or transcribing of letters singly or progressively one after another.”
But the first typewriter proven to have worked was built by the Italian Pellegrino Turri in 1808 for his blind friend Countess Carolina Fantoni da Fivizzano; unfortunately, we do not know what the machine looked like, but we do have specimens of letters written by the Countess on it. (For details, see Michael Adler’s excellent 1973 book The Writing Machine. Carey Wallace’s 2010 novel The Blind Contessa’s New Machine is based on the relationship between the Countess and Turri.)
Typewriters of this type were the word processors of the day and were found in every office and every up scale home. Today some writers and novelists still prefer to type out their books and letters using these reliable old mechanical machines with keys and ribbons of ink.
The photograph by Edward M. Fielding gives this old workhouse plenty of drama and weight using low key photography techniques in the studio.

Recommended Memory Cards for the New GoPro Hero5
The reason you don’t need the fastest memory card for the GoPro Hero5 is the camera is limited to shooting a 60 Mbps data rate, this is 7.5MB/s. USB transfer speeds from the GoPro seems to also bottleneck at around 12MB/s. Even the slowest card I tested still was able to write at around 20MB/s.
