Heritage Village WPC visited this living museum of pioneer history, with a main street that is right out of late 19th. century.
Walked through an period black
smith shop. Checked out a railroad depot, a livery stable and one of the community's log cabins. An educational and fun outing.
St Andrews Church, Bryan. We had a guide for the St. Andrews Church tour and were be able to use tripods, flash and also, other historical, architectural and landscape areas and attractions in Bryan. It was a nice outing, sharing camaraderie and photography.

PHOTO TIPS: BLACK-AND-WHITE IS BACK!
It is time for you to get: Back to Black-and-white!
Black-and-white is back because it's part of the power of photography.
Black-and-white is back in print advertising. In today's saturated-color manipulated-image world, black-and-white feels real. To many, it looks fresh.
Black-and-white is back because brides want to see black-and-white photos in their wedding albums.
Black-and-white is back because it's still a great way to learn about how film "sees" light.
That's why good photo educators have never abandoned teaching beginners how to work with black-and-white film and images.
The bottom line? Black-and-white photography is back because it is beautiful!!! (Extracted from NYIP)
