Farm life in upstate N.Y. is hard but rewarding for those that love it. We were out riding around photographing when we came upon this old farm and barns with white tin roofs. We saw the old farmer and stopped by to chat. His name was Dick, and his family has been farming this land for several generations. He was full of wit and humor as most old farmers are. He invited us to drive onto his farm and showed us how to latch the gate when we left. He took off in his old pickup truck, gave us a wave, and left us to roam around his farm to photograph. It is a hard and simple life but one that builds a lot of character in a person.
