2. Thanks. She was wearing an all black, full length dress.

I didn't go near because I didn't want to dispel the mystery.

What on earth is that round building?
I like the tones of blue in that last pic, btw.

4. The near building is the smoke house, the round building is the ice house/root cellar.

Thanks. Olympus has always been known for how it handles colors.

Info on Ashland, Henry Clay's estate. Muhammed Ali's original name was Cassius Marcellus Clay. Cassius was Henry Clay's cousin, and an ardent abolitionist.

If you like Ginkgo trees, thank Henry Clay. He brought many back from China with him.

6. It's an ancient tree. In the fall, the leaves turn bright yellow. When the leaves fall

they fall in one day.

8. All three exquisite and the first one

especially will be etched in my memory. It has everything. Color, a painterly quality, and grabs me emotionally.
Thanks for all of them.

9. Thank you. Manual lenses make you more deliberate.

I think it allows for more time to get the composition and exposure you want.

10. Try that in the middle of a news story

That said I will have to put bucks away to get a nice prime myself.



The photo you liked of the plant\state park, that was a 70-300

11. I'm not good enough or fast enough to do street photography with a manual lens.

But for decades journalist did just that. Still, for your work your auto lenses are a must.

When I do landscape and macro, the manual lenses suit me just fine.

I have an old Canon zoom I use on occasion.

12. For decades...the first photos

Were well after the fact...the history of photography is amazing. Imagine what Capra could do with modern equipment.
