Photographer's Note

The view from the barn toward the restored 1830 red brick dwelling is surprisingly still. The peace and simplicity of the Shaker community that once thrived here does remain to those who take a moment to look.

I was very gentle in adding saturation and levels adjustment. I am trying to convey a plain, as in not glamorized in any way, yet beautifully uncluttered scene that pays tribute to the Shaker way of life.

After going to nearby Tangelwood to see and hear a Star Wars homage with composer John Williams and narrator James Earl Jones, the contrast upon arriving here could not have been more striking.
