Photo of the Month – September 2017

Congratulations to Kay Rhodes for winning the September 2017 Contest.

This photo was taken on July 25, 2017 inside the Journeyman Distillery, which is an Organic Spirits Distillery, located in the EK Warren Historic Featherbone Factory, in Three Oaks, Michigan. Warren, a staunch prohibitionist, founded the historic factory building in 1883, manufacturing buggy whips and corsets. He revolutionized the manufacturing of corsets with the use of the softer featherbone, over the stiffer whalebone for corsets in the late 19th century. EK Warren’s success reached worldwide attention putting Three Oaks, Michigan on the map.

Camera Settings:  Photo taken with Canon EOS 5D Mark III camera, EF24-105mm lens, f/7.1, 1/60 sec, ISO 1600, handheld. Focal length 24mm

Photographers Guild and Goshen Historical Society Museum Collaborate on Photography Display

At the invitation of Goshen Historical Museum (124 S Main St), The Guild has a display of photographs in the front store window, running July through September. The initial idea was to show photographs of the Goshen and surrounding areas. We did that as much as possible.

The Guild and the Museum invite you to stop by and see the display. The museum hours are 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Thurs., Fri., and Sat. On First Fridays they remain open until 9 p.m. If you are in town and the museum is not open, one should still stop by as the display is quite viewable from the store entrance window.

The Goshen Historical Society encourages all photographers to help record the history of Goshen. Bring in your old Goshen historic-related photos or, bring in new ones of history-in-the-making. While the museum cannot pay for photos submitted they credit the photographer when that information is available.
