It was poor weather for photography during the afternoon that spent at Black Creek Pioneer Village, a museum presenting this area as it was in the 1860s. But there are few pictures of the village on Panoramio, so I did what I could, and hope you enjoy the results. After all, the settlers in the 1860s had cloudy, snow winter days, too!

Thanks for sharing some history, Marilyn. I would have liked to have put a lamp in the first window for you. All your images are well composed. White Christmas at a Blacksmiths' Shope and I bet the Creek is White. Ian

Hi Marilyn, you have an eye for these things. I really like this photo. It is a YS for me. The structure of the wall is amazing and a very good contrast to the circles. But the mood is outstanding. It has something from an Italo Western Movie. (Like the last of its kind "le grand silence"). There is a feeling of an abandoned city.

Thank you, Ian (now on summer holidays!), Roger, and Carsten. I enjoyed the mood of the pioneer village museum, but the day was so dark--even snowing--that I feared I wouldn't be able to convey it to anyone else. So I'm delighted that you were able to catch some of it from my pictures!

Greetings, Marilyn
