A Settler's Wife

Plymoth, MA view map

A poor settler's wife at the Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth, MA.

The picture is taken in 1627 and she was just telling the visitors about the hardships of the poorer settlers in this settlement. The fire in the back burns on the ground, there is no chimney and the wall is blackened by the smoke. Since the plantation didn't produce anything but trade with the natives all goods had to be imported from England at high costs.

Taken in available light, windows to the left, no flash fired (ISO3200,F2.8,1/20s,handheld with IS on).

The image is a 90% crop of the original with a small contrast correction and a subtle texture applied to add to the already existing 'painted' mood.

other sizes: small medium large original auto

to the guest asking me for a picture of the allerton house:

No I don't think I took any. Maybe if you send me an email (on my profile page) we can discuss which house you had in mind.
