Visiting the Eastman House


I took both of these photos at the Eastman house in Rochester, NY two weeks ago. The BF and I were visitng my sister and her family and we decided to tour the house on a perfect fall afternoon.
It is the mansion and grounds (some of which has been turned into a museum of photography) of George Eastman - the founder of Kodak. Being the photography lover that I am i was excited to go and hopefully see some sort of history of the company and the evolution of photography overtime. But to be completely honest I was a little disappointed with that aspect of it. There really wasn't much too any of the displays they had and not a lot of history seemed to be talked about.
But the house itself was certainly something to see! What a beautiful mansion and grounds!! I would recommend going if only to see that part of it!
