Some while ago we visited Philipsburg Manor, a living history museum in Sleepy Hollow, New York. I always enjoy visiting these places as they provide a wealth of photographic opportunities. While most people stick to the main paths and only stop at the main buildings, I always wander off the beaten-track. The key to the success of any living museum is the attention to the details which most people ignore, but would notice if they were missing. It is these details that I try to capture. Here we see a drying animal hide I found in one of the barns.
This was an interesting cameo on its own. However, what brought this little scene to the next level was the filtered sunlight which was coming through the barn doors highlighting the hide.
