WinterBRRRRR!

05Jan10

On Sunday I went to Winterthur, DE with some photo buddies. OMG was it ever cold. We stayed warm while on the Yuletide Celebration Tour, displayed in this grand DuPont Estate and the history was interesting. Our guide did a great job of hurrying us along just as we got our cameras into focus! The decorations were both nostalgic and charming and I have posted a few below. Included are a still life of Mr. DuPont’s breakfast and a scene in the girl’s play room. In one room there was a tree decorated entirely with dried flowers. We walked the grounds a bit and in addition to it being way too cold, did not find much to photograph at this time of year. We warmed up while having lunch in the cafeteria before leaving. On the way home we stopped at the old Newlin Mill in Glen Mills, Pennsylvania. The sky was uninteresting so I focused on the face of the building and all that texture. There were a few smaller buildings on the property including the cabin pictured below. It was so cold we had to be quick and get back in the warm car after a half hour or so. It was a fun day and a good way to finalize ‘the holidays’. Did I tell you how cold it was?
