Now, how does this thing work?
I happen to be paging thru some of my Images that I had forgotten about. I came across this one that I took last year at the Daniel Boone Homestead Festival.
I was just walking around and taking a look at what was there. Walked around the old Barn and found this Lady working with a Spinning Reel. She was fiddling around with it trying to either get it to work right or she was confused on what do do.
I stood there watching her along with other interested people. Put up the Pentax and zoomed in a bit. Just happened to catch this look on her face. I know I would have no idea on how those old Spinning Reels were used. It must have taken some knowledge to operate. The brushed wool she was using was down in a wooden box on the lower right of the Image. Watching how this worked, it seemed that with her left hand she had to twist the wool into long strands while spinning the wheel. I have no idea what that is in her right hand. This is what had to be done if you wanted something to wear during the Winter months.
Thanks for stopping by.

I love that quizzical look on her face. Great shot!
Thank you, Sir. That capture was just by luck that I got it.
