Thursday

I did more exploring than yarning today. I walked out of Aunt Jean's Handiworks with only one skein of Trekking XXL. This shop sells supplies for weaving, spinning and knitting. The spinning wheels caught my eye, but the only problem was they were up on a really high shelf. Couldn't get to them. On second thought, that's probably a good thing.

Clinton, New Jersey is a beautful town. It's best known landmark is the Red Mill.

Built in 1810, it originally operated as a woolen mill. It has also processed grains, plaster, talc and graphite. Today it is a museum. There's quite a history behind this mill and it was fun to tour the exhibits.

There were many geese on the river today. They kept me entertained and gave my camera a workout. I took lots of pictures, but won't overdo it here.

After John returned from work, we drove to Ken Lockwood Gorge so he could indulge in a little fly fishing.

Occasionally a slight breeze would blow and leaves would flutter to the ground. A sure sign of Autumn.

This next picture is especially for Mark and Paul.

There is rain predicted for tonight and cooler weather ahead for the weekend. Driving north in the morning.

  7. Your photos are so fantastically wonderful!!! Even my son who works at a camera shop commented one time as he passed by. Obviously you not only have a pretty decent (or excellent) piece of equipment, but more importantly, you know how to use it!! I am always so please to see your pictures. Keep them coming!

    PS Would you mind telling us what kind of camera (make and model) you use?

  8. busyhsmom,

    Thanks. I'm having fun taking pictures. The pictures in this post were taken with two different cameras.

    The ones of the mill and the geese were shot with a Sony Cyber-shot (5.1 mega pixels). I guess the model is DSC-P100. That's the only number I see on the camera. This is a small digital that I carry with me everywhere so I end up using it the most.

    The pictures taken at the gorge were shot with a Canon Rebel XT/EOS 350D. It's a digital AF SLR camera (8 megapixels). The lens I used was 28-135mm. I refer to this camera as "the good camera". I used the automatic focus and settings, because I don't know how to use the manual settings.

    Tracy
