Kimber. A DA* 50-135 + Kenko 1.5x TC makes for a nice 75-200 f/4 lens.

Some shots of the Shaker Village in Kentucky.
Did you buy any furniture?

As I recall, an elderly Shaker lady invented the circular saw. Black and Decker, Rockwell, etc. owe her big time.

There aren't any Shakers left in kentucky. The last one died in the 1920s. Then, in the 1960s, they decided to preserve the settlement where they lived. There is an inn on the property where you can stay, artists who paint or do wood work and a variety of volunteers who come in to talk about Shaker ethics, values and practice. They have a lot stuff that the Shakers made, but none of it is for sale. Shakers made things simply, but made to last forever.

The biggest thing I enjoyed about the place was just the peaceful feeling that was all around the place.

That what happens you you are a celibate religious sect, and you stop taking new members.

The problem was "Winter Shakers". There were people who would join the sect, in the fall, stay and eat their food all winter, and then disappear in the spring when the work started. They decided it would be easier to just not have any new members.

The term Shakers was from a dance they used to do, men on one side, women on the other that led to a certain religious ecstatic state. The song "Lord of the Dance" still popular from this day is one of the many remaining Shaker gifts to the world. The tune is shaker, the words written as a tribute to the Shaker's many gifts to the modern world.

A very long time since I heard that song. It is not the kind of song that fits within the tradition of my present church.

True that, but then neither did the Shakers, the Dance was the central practice of the Shakers, that in itself would be enough to put off most North Americans who come from Puritan traditions. The thought of dancing yourself into an ecstatic state, just doesn't fit with Puritan religions, though many other traditions, Sufi's, some Portuguese and Southern European traditions, Native American and many others.
