It's been a couple of weeks since my previous upload. Been very busy with other things.

This is a volunteer at the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History. She sits in a 17thc log house waiting to answer visitors questions about life at that time. As the buildings at this open-air museum are originals reconstructed on this site, then there is no electricity and she has only a candle for light and warmth.
Note that although the table is horizontal, the wall cladding is far from vertical!

Many thanks for bothering.

Odd about the boards and table?


Uploaded a square crop, and since Im on a rant about AWB, Ive calibrated it, - a little warmer.

This could just as easy have been taken at our Beamish museum Malcolm. A cracking image with that beautiful soft light on her face.

Although I've never been to Beamisg, Dan, I did think along the same lines as you, having seen images from there.

Is anything vertical about or around you, Malc. Like the lighting on this, very nicely captured.

A very pleasing, pre-Industrial Revolution atmosphere engendered here, which is of course the intention.
Not even 21st-century builders do verticals very well, leastwise in wood and plaster . . .
I remember the circumstances and would not have coped nearly so well.

Looks more like a Vermeer to me! Wonderful lighting and 'set-up.' No anachronisms. Terrific.

Thank you for the kind comment, Malc!
A fine image in square format. I was wondering about how would it look in mono, then saw Alan provided a version. I also like the model who seems to be just right. Lovely period feel to it, and works so well as a portrait as well.
