.stepping.










into Greenfield Village is magical. Simply being in the presence of things so old is just amazing. So many things in the past were made by hand, by the people who were going to use them. If you didn't make it, chances are you saw the face of the person who did. I hope that I can at least partially experience this kind of lifestyle someday. I dream of this kind of community, a collaboration.


I think that Greenfield Village is my favorite place to photograph. Especially with slide film, which is what I used to take these. The light and the subtle colors are captured perfectly.

Chelsea, slide film is amazing. If you're going to shoot in color, slide is the best. It's expensive though, so I only shoot things when it's really important to me that it's high quality...

I know Melynda! Did you get a chance to go there before they closed for the season?

It's beautiful and the light is really wonderful. Good choice.

Thanks Lisa :) I don't know how I'll survive the winter not being able to go there... I suppose I'll just have to pretend I'm in the weaving shop when I weave!
