A Stitch in Time – John Muir House

A Stitch in Time - John Muir House

From the Attic of the John Muir House, is a Domestic sewing machine.  It is pretty cool to see the simplicity of the old sewing machines compared to their modern counterparts.   You can see some of the leaf and flower etchings in the metal.  This shot was backlight substantially from the window.  I used three exposures to balance it a bit more like what was actually seen, then did some color toning to drive home the antique feel.

  1. Very nice. Very antique indeed! There are a lot of treasures in that house, it seems!

  2. Very cool! I used to have an old Singer, similar to this one (from the 50’s I’m guessing)
    Nice lighting and processing.

    • Looking this up, this one is likely from the late 1800s and will probably last another couple hundred years. 🙂

  3. Not as strong an image as the others, but a nice reminder of how things used to be.
