Pioneer Spirit In Black And White

Today, I set out to write more about spring activities. But looking through my pictures, I obviously fell in love with the textures of the old buildings at O’Hara’s Mill Homestead in Madoc, Ontario. The black and white pictures really bring the grain of the weathered and aged wood and bricks alive. Admittedly, these pictures don’t convey the mood of the day – it really was a wonderful, sunny day… I will save those pictures for another post! It does make you think of the lives of people who built these structures with their hands. Hoping you’ll like these textures and grainy surfaces as much as I do.
