Summer of 2012

Since I am asking people to share with me how they feel about the End of Summer in this month’s assignment, I thought I would go back and share photos from the Summer of 2012.  These photos may be associated with past posts or ones which I had not found a spot for yet.

After a morning of photowalking at Watkins Glen State Park, I stopped with Dave of FLX Photo to a couple of wineries along the Seneca Lake Wine Trail.

Not sure if anyone was following me as I flew out to Minneapolis to meet my daughter to drive to her new job in Tallahassee.  I had quite the trip and ended up in St. Louis for a long lay over where I would end of up the following day.  At least, it gave me an opportunity for some motion photography.

On a night out, I enjoyed my favorite and, in my opinion, the best New England Clam Chowder at the Pier 57 restaurant.  I still need to remember to clean up my food models before I click the shutter.

The Cortland Celtic Festival was held at Dwyer Memorial Park in Little York, New York.  The park sits on picturesque Little York Lake.

Before the Media Street Crunch hockey game last month, the kids played in the Crunch Bunch Kid’s Club Street Hockey game.  Kids being kids, it was not always about the game as I found these two boys relaxing during the game.

In central New York, the unofficial end of summer comes when the Great New York State Fair comes to a close each Labor Day.  As a kid, that meant school would start soon.  As a photographer, it means a time and place to capture people and moving colors.
