It's Been a While

I knew it had been a while since I posted to the blog, but when I checked the date of the last entry, I was totally surprised.  Wow.

See, the thing is, I recently purchased a data phone.  I get email and facebook notices on the phone, so I often scroll through them quickly and then say to myself, "there, you're done" and then I don't think about getting on the computer.  

I've been pretty busy this summer--really...can it be over already?  Didn't summer just begin a couple of weeks ago??  (sad face)

Anyway, I've been doing some hiking with my hiking friends and with my grandchildren.  I made this stream image on one of the hikes.

August is racing season at the Saratoga Race Track and I managed to get there a couple of times for the early morning workouts.  It's not as exciting as the actual races, nor as colorful, but there are more photo ops because there are more horses on the track for longer periods of time...  It's a great way to spend a morning.

Then one day my photo buddy, Trish, and I went to Renssealear to photograph some artwork on the columns of the overpasses.  Looking across the river you can see the cityscape of downtown Albany.  

So altogether it's been a busy and fun summer.  I hate to see it end.

I've been wondering when you were going to get out of that hammock! LOL! Just kidding…I know you've been very active this summer, as I've been lucky enough to accompany you on some of your adventures.

You certainly nailed the flow of the water in that first image! I love the conversion to b/w, too. This image must be enlarged to fully appreciate its beauty!

You really nailed that second image as well…the horse/rider are tack sharp…and look at those muscles (on the horse!). Great capture of the horse in mid-gallop, too.

Aaah…image #3 brings me right back to that perfect summer morning we spent by the river. Love your beautiful cityscape image!

Great array of your summertime fun!
