About this blog title

I cannot tell you how many times I have shown up at events with a couple of cameras around my neck, a gadget bag full of odds & ends and a lighting kit and have been asked that question. If it happened once every few years, that would be one thing. But it happens a LOT. It's like getting pulled over by the police and he's standing there with uniform, gun, flashing lights and asking him "Are you a cop?" I would love to come back with a witty reply, such as "No, I am Jesus. Don't you recognize my beard?" However, I cannot be that rude.

Day 223: Amish And Others

Where did yesterday go? Who knows. As always I am busy, busy, busy. The variations on a tree were made with shutter speeds of about 1/30th of a second. I simple zoomed the lens in & out at various, fairly quick, speeds. On the swirly photos I just rotated the camer in my hands at various speeds and settled on the ones presented in the blog to share. It's wonderful i this digital age to be able to experiment so freely and not worry about the expense of film and processing.

The photos presented here today were taken at DeKalb Junction, NY, back in the 1980's. I would have to look up the date to tell you exactly. There used to be cattle auctions there once a week. The Amish folk were there as well as the other local farmers. I was back there a few months ago and the cattle autions no longer take place. Well, maybe they do somewhere else in the area, I don't know. Anyway, the Amish and the other farmers located in remote places like Dekalb Junction are what define the North Country region of New York State.
