Buggy Ride

One of the stops in the Amish Tour was a buggy ride.

We came at closing time so there was no line up
It was fun but I do realize now that even when the weather is good it is cold to ride in an open buggy

This buggy looked very nice but if you would order one it would be at least a year wait.

The Art of Manual Photography

Our Photography course teacher told us to make our pictures in "manual" mode. It's not that easy for sometimes...

...the subject (our cow) was gone before I had the setting right.
