Sara is one of my very best friends. We met in summer camp back in 1999, ultimately ended up going to the same middle school and then graduated together. We've been through it all; fights, tears, tears from laughter and maybe a little more fighting. What can I say, we fight like sisters. Along this ride has been her family which I have adopted as my second family. Sorry guys, you had no choice in it all. Now I have a niece, Quinn who was born on the other side of the country. I finally got to meet her this weekend and she's literally the most quiet baby I have ever met. A baby after my own heart. Unfortunately they will be headed back to California as of tomorrow but that just means I'll have to pack my suitcase for my annual Lake Tahoe trip. Here's some shots of our day at Brantingham Lake and our venture to Fly Creek Cider Mill. BTW, if you haven't been there; what are you waiting for?!
I think we were all a little entranced last Friday when the city was completely engulfed in this fog that made it almost impossible to see ten feet in front of you. It was other worldly, almost as if you had stepped into another realm. Well, at least it was that way for me. My imagination tends to run a bit wild. Overall, I think all of the WNY photographers could unanimously agree that this was like a dream to photograph in, so you better believe I took full advantage. Here's our foggy city at its finest!
One of the things my mother and I like to do when I visit back home (Central New York) is take our cameras and go exploring. Now to be fair, I may be a bit more adventurous when it comes to this than my mother is but she's a good sport. This time around we headed up to Sharon Springs, NY which was mainly known for its Sulfur Bath Houses that were once booming and full of customers who would travel far and wide to experience. Now whats left of the town is the remnants of the bath houses and one large hotel/spa. I've been dreaming of the day that I could go inside of the Adler Spa & Hotel, unfortunately this was not that day. We had a fun day regardless though, so enjoy!
If you've been in New York this year or anywhere with a television, you might have heard of how cold it has been in this neck of the woods. This week, we finally got a break with some 40 degree weather. We consider this a heat wave! So I decided to make the most of this spell and went to explore Letchworth State Park with my dog Otto & friends. The falls were frozen over and so was the geyser that still was spitting water out the top of this massive structure. Here's a few shots from our day!
