    Madtown getaway

    Last weekend went to Madison for a weekend getaway with college friends Laura and Gene and their daughter Mac and her new boyfriend.

    First stop Saturday morning was the Farmer's Market, a huge weekly event around the Capital. Very hot day. Here Sarah and I and our veggies sit on the lawn enjoying fruit slushies while everybody else catches up. Attached files

    Waiting at the bar for a table for lunch at The Old Fashioned with a pint of El Hefe Bavarian Style Hefeweizen.

    Drove up to Praire du Sac to tour the Wollersheim winery. Here's "The House" from the window of "The Winery".

    The store and the "Flight Bar." Hard to get out of here without becoming a member of the case club. A lot of snobs dismiss Wisconsin wines, and midwestern wines in general, but I like them.

    A cruise up and down State Street to peruse the uniquely Madison shops is a regular feature. Here Sarah and Laura check out at the Soap Opera. The clerk looked up when I set down the camera and opened the shutter, but despite carrying on a conversation with Sarah and Laura, never said anything about it.

    I sat out some of this on the benches that line the street, and not entirely because of a stereotypical male ambivalence about shopping.

    My left foot has recently decided to swell up and require a decided limp to walk. I'm not sure if this is the same as Tom Sawyer showing his friends his sore toe. I don't expect any favors in return from you guys.

    Final event was a visit to the Olbricht Gardens. Here's a water lily in the Sunken Garden. Coincidentally the last frame on the roll.

    All with the Populist. .15mm pinhole, 24mm from 24x36mm frame. Attached files

    Seems like it was quite a trip Nick. Great photo's once again with that hardy Populist.

    Great series, Nick. The water lilies look like they're floating in air above the pond.
