    visit to fruitlands. Thanks to Bill.

    Bill gave me a tour of the fruitland mesuem. We were supposed to shoot there but the day was washed out. It is an interesting place. It was really cool to see how americans of that era lived. What I found the most interesting was the indian meseum. As I was walking around and looking at the indian art, I noticed that some of the motifs (the swatika) was similar to (east) indian swastika (swastika is a very holy symbol for the hindus). A native american ceremony in wich they piecered their chests and danced, is similar to the one I have seen in (east) india. Also, I saw a grinding stone that was similar to the one that I have seen my grandmother use. I was able to make a little drawing for them and show how to indian grinding stone looked like. Well, it was a very exciting tour, too bad the rain forced us to leave the cameras in the car.

    Thanks a ton Biil for taking me through the mesuem and for lunch :-)

    Manjo,

    I'm happy you had a good time, in spite of the miserable weather. I tried again today, managed to shoot 12 sheets of film, before it started to rain. The sky should be pretty dramatic in these shots, assuming I got the exposure right. By the time I got home, the sun was out again...:-(.

    You utterly charmed the guide in the Indian Museum :-).

    Cheers,
    Bill
