The sweet smell of success

Posted on July 12, 2010


After a full day of trying, Babs and I were finally able to get her email on my server.  Actually, on Miss Sadie’s server–mine remains recalcitrant. We would have done better to have breakfast at Sonny’s and trade a glossy print of the photo, as in the Olden Daze–and don’t think we weren’t about to try that. Herewith, your Babs Young photo for this particularly lovely week!

Babs writes: I made a trip over to Lavender Hill Farm near Boyne City today. It is pretty spectacular. They are about to harvest the crop and the rows that are green have been harvested. However before that all happens I was very fortunate to find plein air artist Bill Hosner doing a pastel of the farm. He is from Traverse and his work is very well known. He was waiting for the light to change some to capture exactly what he wanted.

Sooooo . . . while Bill waited for exactly what he wanted, Babs captured exactly what she wanted, and aren’t we the lucky ones! Worth waiting for I think. Now, Mr. Gaylord, about my email problems . . .

Every week photographer Babs Young captures moments in northern Michigan, and every week she sends one to Torch Lake Views just for you. You can find more of her photos at the Babs Young Photo Archives and on her Blue Heaven Flickr photostream.
