Grimes Mill

I was on a video shoot about PDR (Purchase Development Rights) land in Fayette County (Lexington), Kentucky. These are lands that are protected from urban development in order to use the land for agriculture, cattle, horses, and even tourism. It costs a lot of money to purchase and protect our disappearing landscape in central Kentucky. We were shooting on the property of Grimes Mill Farm that borders Madison County near I-75.

The featured image was shot this with color film, though I envisioned it in black-and-white. It was mid-morning (and extremely humid!), and I was fighting the dappled sunlight. But it was my only opportunity to shoot these. I think the dappled light actually works with the Boone Creek shot. I like the brown water highlights and the light on the trees in the background. It helps the depth.

There’s a vacancy sign, so I guess they have room for one more business.

Calumet

Calumet horse farm in Lexington, KY, produced more Kentucky Derby winners than any other stable in the U.S.

Taken on a ca. 1936 Voigtlander Bessa (Anastignat Voigtar 4.5,11 cm lens) on Efke R100 film. The Efke film is based on 1940’s emulsions and was developed in Ilford ID-11 1+1 developer, a clone of Kodak D-76, a formula from the 1920’s.

Keeneland *36

Part of my ongoing *36 project. Keeneland Race Course was established in 1936, and is considered an “oasis” in the thoroughbred racing world because of its timeless setting. This gate post that says “K A” was actually rescued from the defunct Kentucky Association racetrack. Thus, the Keeneland Association was born.

Parking

I believe this is a pre-WWI structure. Downtown Lexington, KY. I used a red filter to darken the sky and lighten the red brick.
