I am very happy to have been able to exhibit my "Olden Times" fine art photography on canvas collection at the Thomas Balch Library, a history and genealogy library in the heart of the historic district of Leesburg, Virginia because it was a natural fit for this venue.
I believe that every era has its challenges and one could argue that certain times have been better than others. I am not proposing that the olden times were better than the present. We have come a long way…. But we need to pause from time to time and remind ourselves about where we came from so that we can better understand where we are and where we are headed.
I love contemporary life but I’m intrigued by the bygone world and the legacy it left us. As you peruse these images, I hope that you will be able to take a minute, take your time, and get lost in each and every one of the depicted scenes. Transport yourself and think about how it must have been to live during those bygone times. And then, take a deep breath and appreciate the past, the present, and look forward to the future.
Would love to hear your impressions of this collection of images.
