The Saddler & Harness Maker
Welcome back! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend. As I eluded to last week I would be posting some images from my visit to Black Creek Pioneer Village. The village is a recreation of what life looked like in 19th Century Ontario. The site includes 35 restored heritage buildings including a Blacksmith shop, General Store and Schoolhouse.
We start our visit today with the shop of the Saddler & Harness Maker. (You can click on the images to see a larger version)
This was such a terrific building to photograph. The sun was shining on this day and casting some awesome shadows on the building itself. I positioned myself a few different ways until I got the shadow of the tree the way I wanted it with the branches almost hugging the building. I really wanted the focus to be on the shadows and felt this worked best in B&W which I processed with Topaz B&W Effects.
The next 2 images are from the interior of the building. All I could think of when I was in there was that this would make a great Ralph Lauren ad.
