Since I have not been doing this for a year yet, I thought I'd share with you a piece of my April 2011.
I went to a farm auction with my friend Louise. Her son, Peter, was auctioning off all manner of farm equipment. It was an ideal setting for what I love to photograph.
There were scenes of decay, many great collections, one of them being the farmers' pants!!
Architectural details inside to die for.
This is Peter, tired but focused. He ran a great auction!
Here are two other farmers.
There were at least 300 farmers there, I'd say. Lots of talk and stories and goals. I spoke with one woman who was hoping to get some containers for her orchard's needs.
Here's some of the stuff for sale.
I don't know what all of this is, but visually right up there!
Here's a taste of some of the farm patinas I found.
Swallows' droppings, nest nearby.

It was a very muddy spring last year.
On to the textile portion of this outing....
I was captivated by the play of style, stance, folds, & light.
It was a fabulous field trip!
That's it for today.
