This is going to be pretty short and sweet. My photos are now available for purchase thorugh the CNY Artists, Crafters and Creators Store at the Shopping Town Mall in Dewitt, NY. So, if you are any area, I encourage you to patronize.
Feeling rather chilly this morning, 53 F at what is supposed to be just the beginning of Fall, I began thinking of the last winter which ran through the North East of the country and set record lows and snowfall depths – 8″ there, 12″ in other places. It was certainly one of the roughest winters I have experienced in Syracuse thus far. On two occasions, I had been trapped in my driveway because of the incessant snow and delayed city plows. Yes, I was miserable because of it.
Yet, because of the incessant snowfall, when I did get out, I saw some rather amazing sights. One of those sights happens to have been the Green Lakes out in Fayetteville, NY completely covered in a blanket of snow. This is one of the deepest pair of lakes in this region which were carved out from melting glaciers from the last ice age. But, under this tremendous snowfall, it seemed transformed into something that seem to pop out straight from a fairytale or some story book.
Although, I am not looking forward to the cold again, I am certainly looking forward to taking more photographs like this if the opportunity presents itself this winter. If I collect sufficient, I will see about starting a new portfolio focused on the beauty of winter.

Well, I was happy when I was invited to the show my photos at the SUNY IT Tech-tures event; I am even happier looking forward to the exhibition tomorrow. The exhibition runs throughout the month of June to July 29 at the Gannet Gallery at SUNY IT in Utica. If you enjoy viewing art, I certainly recommend giving it a visit. The opening reception starts at 7:00pm and runs through 8:30pm.
This is just a simple bread and butter note but the Syracuse Camera Club, of which I am a part, will be holding its annual photography exhibition. It is one of those events I have come to anticipate and enjoy. It will be held at the May Memorial Church. The photos will be on display from April 11 and will run a complete month. Our reception and sale night will be held on the April 13 and will include the sale of matted, and framed prints, a slide show and eats – can’t forget those eats.
So, if you are in the Syracuse area I definitely recommend you come out to see the photos and enjoy the visual display.
For the next four months I am going to be involved in collecting photos for a new section of my portfolio. This section will be devoted to winter.
Winter holds its own unique beauty – its own special attractions. I hope to capture some of that magic of that season and present in pictures. I will be sure to post again when I have collected the shots.
