    I visited the Negrych Pioneer Homestead in Gilbert Plains (Manitoba) this summer. Dating from 1897, it's the most complete and best-preserved Ukrainian farmstead in Canada. There's no electricity, yet one of the Negrych's descendants lived there up until the 1990's. No fridge, just an icebox!

    This is a provincial and national heritage site, and a cool place to tour and photograph. All images shot handheld with available light only.

    Very nice and textured. I think the 2nd from the last one needs to go though. It's not as interesting as the rest =) But i can certainly see/appreciate the attempt. Thats just my opinion! =)

    Thanks for the feedback, 5DM. One of my goals when posting multi-photo threads is to identify the images that are not up to par, so your comment is more than welcome.

    Your photography style is weird,on one hand I don't understand the photos, on the other hands I like to watch them, they are very interesting to look at. This is not a critique or something negative though!

    Love no.3 and 4

    There's really nothing to understand, no cryptic messages embedded in them at all. Just images that try to show the passage of time, is all. I take the "weird style" comment as a compliment :) Thanks for your kind words, man.

    I like the more abstract ones better. 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8 are just beautiful.

    The other ones make me think of tourism brochure shots. Nothing really wrong with them but they don't do much for me.

    No problem, OP! #3 and #4 are the best. I think they're strong.
