“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt

Today I decided to do something for myself, so I put Berlin on the trailer and we went out to Hamlin for a trailride.  There were about 15 of us, and my horse was very jiggy when we started out.  On the way back I could ride her on the buckle.  Everyone else rides Western except for me...on my Dressage Saddle (which I would not trade for anything).  About 70 degrees and another perfect day. First, we rode through the woods, and worked our way over to Partyka's Farm Market/Ice Cream stand. We entered from the back where they were sorting apples. Nancy held her horse and Berlin while I went in to get an ice cream, then we switched.  This was a very good experience as we went through orchards, by tractors and big trucks, farm equipment, goats, llamas, geese, a mini and pile after pile of palettes used to hold all the apples that were being picked.  At one point, I could smell the plums that were left on the trees...very sweet.
