Everything’s coming up roses, I mean tulips!

I was almost too late! but I managed to find the time on Monday to toodle on up to the Tulip Festival.  Fields were pretty much plowed under already so nurseries could get their blooms to market. I still enjoyed the country side and made my first stop at RoozenGaarde. The displays were still lovely and there were a lot of people admiring the scene. Another favorite pit stop of mine is the Christianson’s Nursery.  Charming antique shop on the property and lots of plants. In the parking lot was a woman selling good ol’ fashioned philly sandwiches.  Had to stop and have a bite!

Enjoy the pics….

Wollensak means fine lenses

Every once in awhile I’ll buy a bunch of old National Geographic magazines and peruse the ads. I just love them.   Here is an ad for of all things Wollensak lenses! I guess those who read National Geographic are thought to have a big interest in photography.  I happen to have an old Century Master 8×10 camera sitting in my studio. Unfortunately for me I never got to shoot anything with it but it was definitely a fine instrument as it does have a Wollensak lens on it! The camera is for sale for $575 if you are interested.
