Last Saturday was Ranch Day at the Ranching Heritage Center in Lubbock, Texas. These are actual ranch buildings from 1870 -1910 that were moved to the site so that they could be preserved. I wanted to get the light in the buildings and the content outside the windows, so it was a 3-shot HDR scenario - all handheld since tripods are not allowed. I have my grandmother's 1915 Hoosier, and it is obvious that one hundred years ago people had to spend a lot more time on daily tasks such as cooking. The flour bin holds around 6 gallons of flour, and my grandmother would have had to bake things on a wood-fired stove. The first shot is with the XF 16-55 f/2.8. The Hoosier cabinet on the right was a standard in Prairie life at the turn of the 19th century. The white protrusion on the left side dispenses flour that was added in bulk via the cabinet door above it. The second shot, the potbelly stove, is with the 23mm f/2. Wood is scarce in West Texas, so sometimes cattle dung was used as a fuel source.
