I learned the hard way

Posted in North Carolina, Wanderings by erinbrethauer on July 21, 2010

A photo from the great Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings concert that rolled through Asheville in May.  ‘I learned the hard way’ is their new album and it’s good.  I especially love the cover art.  So bad ass.  This photo is shot with some old film.

Silly bandz and hula hoops

Aaah, summertime in Asheville.

I was out shooting the ‘Downtown After Five’ street concert for work last night when I found this nice little scene.  These girls were learning how to hula hoop from a lady in a tassled bikini which, in this town, isn’t that unusual.   People here love hula hoops and wierd outfits.  It’s pretty sweet.

I can’t decide which photo I like the most…so I posted all three.  Feel free to let me know which one you like the best.

Alma & Bun, scans from last summer

Posted in Farming in the Blood, North Carolina by erinbrethauer on July 10, 2010

Last summer I worked on a project following two farms through the growing season (you can see the blog here: http://www.citizen-times.com/farming).  Above is Alma and Bun, one of the couples who was kind enough to work with us on the project.  They are the sweetest, hard-working people you can meet.  I miss visiting them on a semi-regular basis because I would learn so much during each trip- be it about farming or how to live simply.  Below, Bun is showing me paw paw fruit.

Dad’s 60th Birthday Party

Posted in Family, Friends, Home sweet home by erinbrethauer on July 5, 2010

My dad turned 60 at the end of June and to celebrate my family threw a party in the back yard.  I got to fly in to Wisconsin for the weekend which was a real treat.  My mom made bowls of delicious food and cooked up a bunch of barbeque.  We cleaned up the house and set up a tent which soon filled up with friends and family.  It was a great party.
