I've photographed at Millbrook Village nearly fifteen times over the years but my visits never seem to match up with days that the village's buildings are open for touring. On Saturday I was lucky enough to be driving by Millbrook and noticed re-enactors walking around so I stopped and walked around a bit and was lucky enough to find the Methodist Church in the village open, empty and the most wonderful light bathing the inside. This church organ and organist throne from the 1800s in the church corner was like a scene from one of the photo books by David Plowden or Wright Morris. I wish I had more days like that.
I notice some annoying scanning artifacts around the top of the organ. I'm going to have to find out when I can get back up there with the 8x10 and re-shoot this and then contact print it.
