Back to the Land at the Ford Museum

Yesterday, we went to the Henry Ford Museum. It was a cold rainy day. It started with freezing rain and then just turned into a washout. But it was a perfect day to spend exploring the Ford Museum. The Ford museum is huge and very interesting. One of the exhibits that I found interesting and charming was the "Back to the Land" exhibit about hippies living in geodesic domes. There was a great mix tape playing with Grateful Dead and Rolling Stones and a Volkswagen repair manual on the table. Fun!

Last week, Dick at Eye on Texel gave me a "Keep up the Good work" award because he likes my photography, he said. Thank you, Dick! I posted it in the sidebar, but did not have a chance to award it to anyone else.

I am going to award the city blog portion to:

Fenix, Bostonscapes
Old Man Lincoln at Brookville Daily
Marie at Montpellier Daily Photo.

Many of the rest of you also deserve award for you wonderful work. I will be giving some out on my other blogs and maybe create some new awards. If you are reading this, you are probably a winner in my book. Thanks for being here!

I love these pictures. The lighting is wonderful. Is this in Greenfield Village? I visited there once several years ago. I thought it was an amazing place

Thanks Mary! That's very nice of you. :)

Interesting reading about how people went 'back to the land' and why in the 70s. This living room and kitchen seems to match the Powder Room at the Scarab Club! maybe it's just the pink and cream tints :)

Thank you very much, dear Mary. I hope I will be "à la hauteur" :-))

I have just read your comment on my blog. Sorry for reacting late!
