Stockade Art Show

I was in town this morning to do some errands and I stopped at a friend's house to have a quick lunch and chat.  While I was there I received a surprise call on my cell phone, from a friend I haven't seen in a very long time.  She was heading to the Stockade Art show in Schenectady and was calling to see if I wanted to join her.

So off I went to meet up with her.  What a great visit we had.  It was a beautiful day--perfect for this type of event.  Of course we had our cameras with us.  After spending time looking at all the wonderful art, we walked along some side streets and took photos of some of the fun front doors and other decorative details we saw.

Some of the homes nearer the river were hit hard by the floods caused by Irene, but on the whole the Stockade fared pretty well.  I'm sure that the Art Show today was a celebration of sorts considering how devastating the flood could have been.

It was a blessing to be able to spend this wonderful day with two great friends.

Beautiful images, Linda!!! In the first one, I love how you framed the plant with the white posts. It's a unique image that really caught my eye.

Glad you had a great day. Those spur-of-the-moment events can lead to the best times!

I bet the residents of those homes would love having your framed photos hanging on their walls!
