38th Annual Somerset Steam and Gas Pasture Party - Part 1

Orange County, Virginia 

The Event

Photographing an event like the Somerset Steam and Gas Pasture Party may be approached in two ways. One way is to isolate the historic artifacts from the surrounding modern event in an attempt to avoid anachronisms in the picture, like a modern pickup truck next to a 19th century steam tractor. Or one might take a broader view by placing the historic artifacts in the context of the 2014 event. This year I have tried to do some of both.
