    Yeah, I'm sure we could all come up with cameras that don't even need batteries.

    Maybe we could invite Bill Schwab - he could pull his wet-plate trailer with a pair of horses?

    The Amish might be more amenable to pin-hole cameras - after all they are just a variation on a small hole in the barn wall.

    That sounds great Nicholas. Thank you. Maybe we could even get Dolly to join in with her water colors. Is the interest for this fall or next spring? Where is the farm located? If it is in the snow belt where it snows in feet rather than inches we should take that into consideration.

    No, that is news to me. I looked it up on Google and I could probably find it, but I know nothing about it. Sounds very interesting.

    do these amish wear white or black hats? are they similar to menonites? one time my girlfriend and I tried to do some landscape photos with an amish house in the photo. the kids shined their mirror on us and nearly blinded us with the reflection. ouch! smart kids! and an elder came out and started yelling at us about leaving them alone. that was in New York State.

    my dad has a spy camera from WWII. maybe we should get out the leicas and do some sneaky street photography.

    do you suppose there are any lurkers out there watching us?

    The Amish around here wear straw hats. But there are all sorts of Amish - some of the 'Old Order' ones go so far as to ban buttons as 'ornamentation' and hold their shirts closed with straight pins. You may have run into a strict sect - though if they allow mirrors...

    Now for something very non-Amish

    I was looking for some 8x10 enlarging lenses and found a place that had both a 360mm Componon that I wanted to try and a 300mm Process lens. I turns out they also had a broken Durst with a supposedly working CLS2000 head.

    So, after a very eventful weekend of travel, I got the two lenses and a car full of spare Durst parts.

    I was able to fix the CLS2000 head and get it running. It is quite a beast. I actually put it up on the enlarger myself. I stripped the head of just about anything that would unscrew so I could lift if high enough to get it up there.

    For those who have never seen one of these in person, that full-size home water heater is a good size reference.
