Have you any more like this one?  I can look at this one repeatedly and I can wait for the apples, but more photographs like this would be nice.

Hi Joseph, You need to get there earlier, during pheasant season, when the apples are warm and ripe. One youthful pleasure I look back on is wandering through Michigan fields with a shotgun and stopping in an apple orchard for a fresh, unbelievable delicious apple. Did it annually for many years.

Wish it was that easy --- just books of negatives on the shelves  -- not yet digitized  --trying to get at least 20 done a day ...

You needed a shotgun to catch apples?

Absolutely, Jeremy, we shot them out of the trees. (You missed the "pheasant season" part.)

You called it "stopping" back then? And they never caught you!? Or they were too afraid of your shotgun? ;D

You'd have permission from the farmer, Slobodan, before you ever went over his fields after pheasants. If you knew about hunting you'd know about the signs that say: "Ask first." Really good idea. Those farmers have shotguns too.

Really like this one with the arches.  Everything pulls together.
