100 Prints Project #41 - Letters

Another oldie, but goodie from my black and white film days. This one was taken at the Marshal County Fair in Warren, Minnesota during the first Minnesota Roadtrip! workshop with ColdSnap Photography. Part of the fairgrounds was dedicated to the reproduction of a settler's village and was home to a couple of great women we affectionately called the "lefse ladies". They were stationed just inside the old church with their electric griddles and their lefse dough. They watched out for us over the two days we were at the fair and a few of the participants went back the next summer to pay them a visit. It was a great workshop and I get a chance to meet some great people too. I hope you enjoy the image.


  1. I love the shallow DOF and the way the shadows fall across the front on a diagonal. The texture and contrast give this almost a 3D effect. Gorgeous B&W.
