After a late start this morning, we spent the afternoon at the Stone Barns Center for Food & Agriculture. It's a beautiful location that is promoting better ways to farm and to eat. They're open to the public, and encourage visitors to wander around the farm to learn about sustainable, natural farming. The have a restaurant and cafe, both of which serve food made on the premises from fresh ingredients grown on the farm. We ate lunch at the cafe, and Donna was able to have an excellent gluten-free meal. Of course, we did take our cameras, even though the weather was dreary. Here are a few photos from the day:
All of these images were made with my Sony SLT-A35 and the Minolta Maxxum 28-85mm f/3.5-4.5. The more I use this old lens, the more I'm thrilled with it. And, I was able to incorporate some of the techniques I learned at Rick Sammon's Croton Creative workshop, which I attended this weekend.
