Photographed in July of 1977 and part of a popular regional photographic calendar entitled "Valley People." The documentary project concerned documenting descendants of the Tuality Plains settlers of Washington County, Oregon.
Pictured is pioneer desendent Oliver Van Domelin with his horse drawn plow, on his Mountaindale Farm taken 32 years ago. Oliver is representative of the valley's pioneer heritage... and the last of a then living pioneer. Photographed in July of 1977 and part of a popular photographic calendar entitled "Valley People."
Of particular note is the fact that Oliver didn't wait for me as I was in the middle of changing rolls of film on my 35mm Nikon camera. So... what is observed in this photograph is that I am actually running to catch up with him as the horses made their way out into the field. I relied on a fast shutter speed and an "eagle eye" to capture this image while both of us were in full motion. A favorite for many years, this image captures the lively feel. It is an authentic document of an era no longer with us.
