An elderly couple have built a life on a farm, raising three daughters there, hosted many extended family dinners, and accumulated memories. A house was built, gardens were tended, animals were cared for. On holidays fireworks were set off and of course there was always food, most often accompanied with a fish fry.

An airport grew next door and the couple got older. The farm became too much to handle so it was sold to the city who rezoned it and plowed the house and it’s out-buildings under. Gone are the gardens, tomato plants, fruit trees, and lawns. All are returned to nature and only the memories remain.

I photographed this pano about one year after the farm was leveled. Google Earth has not yet been updated. The family photos are from my collection as well as that of D. Barone's collection and were taken in the last 6 years.

A Canon EOS 5D with a Canon 16-35mm L-series lens set at 16mm was used on a Manfrotto 303SPH head. The spherical panorama was stitched together with RealViz Stitcher V4. This panorama was shot with available light at 1/15 of a second @ f11 in RAW mode with an ISO of 100 on the Canon EOS 5D. I processed all of the images in the RAW conversion software Camera Raw 4.6 from Adobe.
