Photo a Day Challenge


The costumed innkeeper at the Four Mile Inn  baked bread for her boarders.  Built as a stagecoach inn in 1853 in Rolling Prairie, Dodge County,  it became a community meeting place for the townspeople to discuss the issues of the day.

    The composition and lighting are stellar to begin with; the processing make it look like the cover of a magazine from the 20s or 30s.

    This is totally Rockwellian! From the pose, the period props to the processing, this just screams of his paintings.
