Same here, Renata. People spend a lot of time in those gardens. Some grow flowers, some grow vegetables, some a bit of both. I have a friend who rents a garden at a different location but also close to the city, and she spends every free moment out there! :)

This is Nifty's 2nd time with me. I make a separate gallery for each of Nifty's trips with me.

Here is Nifty's Trip #1 (external link)

Here is Nifty's Current Trip! (external link)

My in-laws own a centennial dairy farm. We go there every Sunday for a big chicken lunch.
I walked around the farm and took a few photos.
I decided to edit this series since farm photos look much better with some exaggerated adjustments!

I will make a couple posts w 8 photos each...

#1 HAD to get a photo of THIS window...this window has history. This is the window my girlfriend (now wife) used to sneak out of in high school to meet me! We have been together since she was a freshman and i was a junior and we've now been together for 14 years! And when she moved out, and in with me, her younger sister took over her room and used that same window to sneak out to meet her boyfriend (now husband). Only, her sister got caught. Then she told her parent's that my wife is the one who taught her how to sneak out!

#3 She goes crazy everytime we come over and whines until he gets out of the car. If we show up without him, she just sits by the door and whines. She's obsessed with him and he mostly just ignores her while she follows him around.

#5 One of the countless barn cats. They just reproduce like the mice that they kill! AND people are constantly dropping off stray cats to add to it! That's actually how they got 2 of their previous dogs, irresponsible dog owners drop off their dogs in the ditch. Horrible but it actually works out for these dogs. They love animals and treat them great. My father-in-law actually can't even bring himself to put down the cows when it is time. He has to call his brother who comes over and does it.

That's it for me this trip! It's time for Nifty to be moving on from West Michigan to see more of the US! Hopefully I can get nifty during better weather when West Michigan isn't so ugly!
We are actually going to Rome March 24! I was hoping I'd have it then so I could bring it with. Would be kind of cool for a US nifty to get to leave the country!

On the inside is plated with gold, but unfortunately no cameras allowed inside. They are very strict with that rule.

My thoughts exactly! Keep it and take it with you to Rome. That would be so great! Then we would have a USA Nifty going to Europe whilst in July Pieter is taking the EU Nifty on a trip to the USA! How cool is that?! :lol:

Great series of shots from you both, Blake and nekrosoft.
I especially like the shots of that Temple!

have few shots with sigma 12-24 as well, Temple looks better during summer, water is flowing, flowers, gardens.

another interesting bit, they never open the doors to that temple, there is building right next to it, you have to go inside that building, take your shoes off, leave cameras etc... and take a tunnel underground and you enter the temple though the tunnel.

I been inside before, its really Majestic and grand inside, all hand carved and a lot of gold, but no images.

I agree! Take it with you! Let US Nifty travel out of the US and then back. That would be cool.

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.
You're a ghost driving a meat-coated skeleton made from stardust, riding a rock, hurtling through space. Fear Nothing!

A lot of museums don't allow people to take pics. I was happy the Rijksmuseum does allow it, even though it's hard with the low light and not a tripod allowed, but still, better some images than none at all. I bet that temple looks real nice inside!

I was hoping that would be your response! As long as that's ok with whomever is next, I will hold onto it to bring to Rome! I will be shipping Nifty out on the week of April 2nd then.

I think it'd be even cooler if we could get Euro Nifty to Rome by the 24th so it could meet US Nifty!

Btw, does anyone have the current nifty list?
