This slide is the thousandth one in a million. Well, at least one in several more thousand. This week we filled box number two and this slide is D135/2/500 – identifying it as the last slide in the second box of the Gunnie Moberg Archive. Each box holds 500 slides so this is the thousandth.
And what a wonderful,seasonally responsive image. Mirroring the fields around Orkney right now, here are the fields of Orkney in 2006. This harvest image is one of Gunnie Moberg’s later photographs. Gunnie’s photography spans three decades of Orkney culture, and agriculture is at the heart of much of her work.
So as we continue the harvest of Gunnie Moberg images it is good lean up against a haybale and take a moment to look back at what has been achieved so far – one thousand images digitally archived. We would like to thank Robin, who has been volunteering here at the Gunnie Moberg Archive, for the many hours he put in to get us this far. We are ready now to start a new archival storage box and that is a great feeling.
Here are a couple more of the images from the slide sheet Gunnie marked ‘Sheep and Farming’.
