Central Pennsylvania is a fascinating place. The area is still very much close-knit and often frozen in time. Old-fashioned gatherings for community fundraisers or simple food preparation are still the norm for this area, just as it has been for the past 200 years. Even simple things like home butchering, done in the autumn, is still done in a community spirit. These photos were all taken between the months of late August and November, between 2012 and 2014.
