Today I have some images from Cannonsburgh Village located at Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
Historic Cannonsburgh Village represents approximately 100 years of early Tennessee life from the 1830s to the 1930s. Within the village is a gristmill, school-house, telephone operator’s house, the University House, the Leeman House, a museum, a caboose, the Wedding Chapel, a doctor’s office, a general store, a blacksmith’s shop, a well, and other points of pioneering interest.
This was our first stop (before breakfast) on Tuesday.
This was also the day that my tripod ball-head decided to malfunction, so I was left to shoot in some pretty dark rooms without the benefit of timed exposure. Fortunately I did have a speed-light and a flashlight with me so I was able to compensate but I did not get the kind of shots I really wanted to.
It is an interesting representation of how early life must have been in Tennessee. I was reminded of the time Jeanne and I visited “Living History Farms” near Des Moines. I had a film camera back then so who knows where those prints are. 🙂
Still I did make some images of the landscape and some of the interesting static displays but the real good stuff was inside the buildings where it was dark and a tripod was a must.
I also don’t function well before breakfast. Some folks can’t get started without their cup of coffee in the morning. I’m one that needs a full breakfast. So I was really hungry the whole time I was there. I did have a couple of snacks with me but they did not meet the test. 🙂
We stopped at a Cracker Barrel on the way back to Nashville for breakfast so it was all good.
That’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
Love the subject matter here! The B&W works very well!
Thank you Denise. I enjoy black and white photography as well. All the best.
