Who you callin' Clay, boy?
You constantly surprise me by your visual literacy as well as your written observations. You see so much in this Triangle of ours! This piece on goats is obviously the most wonderful subject -- how can you go wrong? But you have made more of the situation even than it presented. Case in point, the graphically sophisticated view from inside the barn. Capturing the moment of goat peering out of schoolbus. And much more. How do you even have time to edit other reporters' articles??!
I'm glad someone has stepped forward to express concern about the goings-on over at Spence's Farm! I will never forget the hateful attitude he expressed toward 3 adorable Hispanic girls I had taken for a visit a few years ago. Spence was so derogatory to me for having "wandered into" his farm! (In fact, I had made a reservation.) He refused to listen. Did we think that this was a park we could just walk in freely? Didn't we know he has to make money? yada yada. When I saw the look of hurt on the girls' faces I gathered them up and got them the heck out of there. Treated them all to ice cream at Maple View so they would try to forget about it. But a kid never forgets something like that.
As goes (went) Tribeca, so goes Golden Belt
the "utility" of belief?
It is lamentable that the photographer's name, Matthew Brandt, is omitted from the credit line while the Museum's "courtesy" is not overlooked. It is 2013 folks! I'm speaking to you: graphic designers, museum adminstrators, publication editors, web editors. We in the professional and fine-art photography field have been grappling with this kind of oversight/negligence since at least 40 years ago when I first waded into the photography field. While you may not realize that your publication is liable for triple normal usage value for failing to give proper photo credit, you might at least realize that readers generally like to know the name of the creator of a work of art displayed in your pages and on your website.
Temple Grandin is the bomb! I've been reading her books for a decade and she really shed light on the animal handling side of gourmet vs compassion-conscious eating for me. I am passionate about this subject, and I would have loved it if this article had been significantly longer.
