Photographer's Note

This is where I work now with my new job! (I still have my position at the university, too). I work at the American West Heritage Center, a living history museum. I'm their new Program Director.

The Heritage Center's dates of exploration are 1820 - 1920. These machines are from the early 1900s. The machine on the left sorts grain and shoots it through the tube. The machine on the right is a grain elevator that lifts the grain to wagons. When World War I started, and women had to do many of the chores that men did previously, many families bought new technology like this to help them out on the farm. At this time, of course, most families living in northern Utah at this time were farmers of some kind.

I've discovered in that in shooting into the sun, I must remove all filters from my camera, or I'd get too many weird things like dust and lens flare in strange places. My lens automatically added the star points.

Thanks for looking!
