I had the pleasure of meeting a wonderful local photographer, Jennifer Bernard, who has taken her love of Louisa May Alcott and translated it into a series of beautiful black and white photographs recreating scenes from Little Women. Over the next 4 days I will present a large representation of each photo with comments from Jennifer. Be sure and visit her website for more information. See link below.
Hope you enjoy these as much as I do.

Jennifer comments, “This photograph was taken at the Orchard House on an early August morning. A quick summer rain blew through, perhaps you can see the raindrops in the photograph online. The props were selected with care: (1) The chair “May” has her arm on is an exact duplicate as the chair in her bedroom in the Orchard House. (2) Geraniums by her side and a small lunch basket from the 1860’s. (3) I loved May’s spirit and love for color, even though she is photographed in black and white, her personality shines through dressed in favorite tapestry of color, topped with a blue lace hat. This image was to present the story of May’s painting of the Orchard House which can be viewed as one tours the home.”
