Civil War Reenactment at Pennypacker Mills, Schwenksville, PA. This is a great venue to get a sense of American history and how life was lived before this current "modern" age. Pennypacker Mills is located at 5 Haldeman Rd, Schwenksville, PA 19473.
Visited the Berman Museum of Art at Ursinus College today. There are several powerful pieces in their collection. This is George R. Anthonisen's sculpture of "Murder/Cain and Able." George has a website at http://ganthonisen.com/
Today the sky was overcast with light rain from time to time. A nice opportunity to capture saturated colors and take advantage of the reduced dynamic range. From time to time I visit this abandoned home to see if I can do a better job of capturing the atmosphere at this location. The raw image was taken with a Nikon 1 V1, ISO 100, 1/60 sec @ f/4.5. with the Nikkor 1 VR 6.7-13mm lens.
A Nikon 1 camera with the FT-1 adapter and the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 can be a useful combination for close-up photography. This particular image was taken at ISO 1600, 30mm at F/4.0. The Sigma allows for very close focusing - on the Nikon 1 at 30mm the lens is effectively an 80mm.
