A few weekends ago I had the pleasure of leading some intrepid photographers to the Duke Homestead for a landscape and architectural field trip. It was my first visit there, and I was not disappointed.

Besides the historical significance of the buildings and Washington Duke himself, the tobacco drying barn reminded me of the ones I used to see in Connecticut many years ago.

In the end we had a thoroughly enjoyable outing, strengthened existing friendships and made new ones too. And we learned about photography as we captured some wonderful outdoor and indoor images!

Here are a few of my images to whet your appetite and prove that the Homestead is definitely worth a visit.
