    • Thanks, Larry. I think the look (it’s not the reality) of hand stenciling on the walls enhances the abundance of detail in this room.

  2. For me, the obvious thing that makes this sing is the reflected window, but then I look closely and see that stain on the curtain, and it adds to the story. The light handling is excellent again, inside and out!

    • I just noticed that stain today. And, yes, you can travel far in the reflected window; I like it, too. About the lighting: I think my exposures improved dramatically when I finally started looking at the histograms in the camera to make sure the whole width is covered (when possible). In the past I just chimped to see that my highlights weren’t blown out and didn’t care if the right tail didn’t go all the way over. Of course I’m still way dependent on Lightroom to make the best I can of the image.

    This reminds me of the places shown on https://valsdarkroom.com/portfolio/residential/ The places there are abandoned and decaying, but on your pics one gets an impression how such places were looking when they where new.

    • There is very much a feeling of going back in time when I’m in this farmhouse, but it is not at all a sad feeling. Thank you for the link, Nannus. Those places do look sad to me. I kept thinking, “If only, if only . . .”. My friend, one of the owners of the extended-family-owned farmhouse I’ve been photographing, assures me that the next generation has every intention of keeping and spending time in the house.

  4. Oh – my grandmother, born right before the turn of the 20th century, had a dresser just like this! It brings back warm memories.
