“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt

This Will Take Awhile....

More photos after I posted last night
We had sundaes followed by
 the kids getting into an exercise mode.

It was still muggy this morning.

 After chores I ran around looking for shades that were the proper size for the windows in the Studio.  Gary started working on them and so far 3 are hanging.  Too hot out there.

Nice Nanna that I am, I took Finn, Coop and Ariana over to Tina and Roger's pool.
No better place to be.
 We are so lucky to be able to swim there.

 Dropped them off at Jen's around 3:15 so they could get ready to go to Lewiston (near Niagara Falls) for a tournament Finn was playing in.  He was invited to join a baseball team from Rochester.

When I got back to the farm, there was a nice breeze and the girls were out in the pasture....except for Berlin who was probably in front of the fan.

Karen did chores so I could get down to the Welcome Center for Summer Serenades.
Tonight it was all about the Brockport Big Band.

 They are such pros!

Of course Annie and I were there schmoozing. 
(I'm sure Mary was terribly sad, not being there!)
 Her husband David was there too.

Jackie was handing out programs.  She and Gary work very hard to bring these concerts to our community.

 This is Mark Ketchum.  He plays one mean sax and has a lot of solo time.

 There were several beautiful boats docked this evening.
 ...another big and very receptive crowd.  
They know good music when they hear it!
I must have taken 20 short videos.

 Not bad, sitting in your boat listening to top shelf tunes.
 Karen is dog sitting Ben and they stopped down after doing chores.  What a sweet dog.
Thank you for giving me the night off.
 Someday we are going to gather all the people who have these t-shirts for a photo shoot.

By the time I headed home, the sun was going down.

 Could not resist playing with these moon shots.
 Like musical notes.

Night all.


  1. Boogie music, superb, I do hope that is the right term, super day lilies too.

  2. What's better than a swim on a hot day? Looks like you were all busy but had fun.
