Pillars of Strength

A trip to Troy, New York, resulted in a few shots that I like.  This shot, taken by my new camera is pleasing to me.  There weren't many moments when the sky was blue; however, I see a hint of it here.
The lighting and colors constantly changed today making photography challenging, but fun.

Early Days of Summer

Being locked out of work, due to Regents' Exams, I have had extra time in the morning to drive around.  I caught the sun between the tree branches and found it to be calming, serene.  Thank Goodness For Summer!

Testing My New Camera

I bought a Sony Cyber-Shot recently.  I am practicing and so far so good.

Red Barn Door

I found this door on the side of a great barn.  I love 'red barn' paint.  If I had an appropriate door for this color I would be painting right now!

Currently, I am reading a non-fictional account of a woman trying to rescue her children from the Shakers.  This account takes place in the 1800s and "paints" a fascinating look at Shaker life.  The main character, Eunice, though cheated and manipulated by Shaker society, did not deny the beauty of their sprawling farms.  Here is a small part of the Shaker's beautiful, sprawling landscape.  The Great Divorce, by Ilyon Woo tells a very unique story about a very unique society.

Shaker Broom

I really like the light streaming into the window which also causes the colors to be 'warm'.
