Traveling back to 1860 farm life in the Midwest…

It was a stormy morning in May when I stepped back in time at the Oliver H. Kelley farm in Elk River, Minnesota.

I hope you enjoyed this journey back to the 1860s on an American farm. I would love to get your feedback so feel free to leave a comment. You can also subscribe to the blog and/or join Valerie Jardin Photography on Facebook (see the icon above). Thank you!

  2. On a vraiment l’impression de retourner 100 ans en arriére!! Tu as travaillé avec quelle focale? J’aime bien aussi ton travail sur PC pour le rendu qui est excellent!
    Bon aprés-midi…
