    Manjo,

    I'm interested but can't make it. On the other hand, I learned tonight that some members of the Assabet Valley Camera Club has scheduled an outing there for the same day (morning) , so you may run into some other (35mm) shooters. And I will gladly take you shooting at Fruitlands once the museum opens.

    hi guys

    i'd be careful photographing in the cemetary.
    the people that are running it ( and swan point here in rhode island ) are becoming more and more anti-photography because of what they suggest is " an invasion of privacy" ... i found out the hard way when i was doing a portrait-thing here at swan point, and a security guard drove up to us to assure no names or dates were "able to be read" ...

    this seemed kind of strange to me, considering the cemetary movement that mt auburn and swan point were products of, considered the cemetaries to be a public space like a park - a place where people could have a picnic, or wander, or paint/photograph ...

    so if you are approached by a car, or "whoever" ...

    I thought this is a public park, and specificaly this one supposed to have started the parks movement.... . " an invasion of privacy" ? that is wired! The names of the buried are listed on the internet, and also shows where the grave stones are located! I think the security guard was having a bad day and was looking for someone to pick on. As long as the park does not put out a public statement saying what you can or cannot do, I think its our in liberty to photograph it.

    it might be kind of weird, considering the history of the cemetary as a public space, but i'd be aware that is pretty much the way things are these days. i really wouldn't worry about it too much, just be aware that someone may tell you the same thing i was told ...

    Bill, Manjo... please keep me updated of any good photo ops coming up. I will, as always, keep looking at these threads.

    Will I be seeing anyone, beside Manjo, in NJ on 21 May at the Prallsville Mills complex? It is a great location for photography.

    James
