IN THE FIELD: Revisiting Familiar Places 2


In the previous post I mentioned how revisiting familiar places often will bring new discoveries. I found a few more during my latest visit to the Hopewell Furnace Historic Site.

I couldn’t tell you how many times I have walked past this doorway to the company store. But I never experienced what I did that morning.

As I peered into the room, the early morning sunlight was streaming through the old window. It may have been the time of day, or the time of the year, but the aged wood was aglow with golden light.

Ambient light from the window was the sole light source in this photograph.

    Love the warm tones of the image.

      It’s kinda cozy feeling…considering it’s the meat room where workers could buy supplies for their families.

    What amazing lighting – you were so lucky to capture this. Really atmospheric shot!

    Thanks Jo, the camera did a pretty good job reproducing what I saw that morning. I love the color of the 200+ year old wood.

    For a person that likes a cool blue pallet, i sure am attracted to these warm tones and rustic look. Great shot, David.

      Thanks Jane, it sure is a fun place to snoop around. The light was pretty special that morning and even the sheep let me take a few portraits. Usually they are way off in another field somewhere.

    What a beautiful warm glow on the wood, like liquid amber- gorgeous 🙂

      Liquid amber. I like that! Honestly I never saw the room with that light…it stopped me in my tracks!

    Beautiful existing-light capture, David.

      Thanks John, the light was pretty special that morning.

    Very cosy 🙂

    I loved this! 🙂

    Beautiful light once again, David. I love the warmth from the wood.

    Yes the early spring light really showed the patina from many many years of use. Although it’s a bit dusty, it is perfectly smooth in places within reach.
