Visited the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI in October and thought I'd share some pictures. Fascinating collection of American history--highly recommended if you are in the Detroit area. I'll post more on my visit to Greenfield Village in a different thread.

All were taken with my trusty DL and the kit lens. The indoor pictures were shot hand held with no flash. C&C welcome as always! Jay

I was there 52 years ago and still remember much of that visit even though I was only 6 or 7 years old at the time. Beautiful photos you have presented here.

Wonderful pictures, though the chandelier picture could make me dizzy (that's not a criticism at all, by the way). Your interiors are very impressive.

Jay - very, very nice. I especially like the staircase and the chandelier. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that photographs them. I was recently in a hotel in Montreal trying to photograph theirs and people kept walking by staring at me. But, I didn't care. My parents were embarrassed.

You did a good job.

Thanks for the kind comments.

Dawg: The previous time I visited was about 20 years ago when I lived in the Detroit area. There are some changes to the exhibits, but the key attractions (like the Allegheny locomotive, the Presidential limousines, etc) are still a big draw!

NHMom(Pat?): I was pleasantly surprised at the performance of the kit lens and continue to use it a lot. I find that so long as there is plenty of ambient light, clarity and sharpness are pretty decent.

I'll be posting some pictures from Greenfield Village (located next door to the Henry Ford Museum) soon.

Great shots, the DL with kit lens make a great combination.
