*In California we all have fences around our yards separating us from the neighbors. Part of the charm of Upstate New York is that there are no fences or boundaries.

While visiting with a friend on a small farm in Johnsonburg New York I met these two brothers who were just passing through. Farm boys out with their shovels. They were so proud when I asked if I could take their picture so that “I could take them back to California with me”*
