well its that boring time of year, I dont feel like traveling to Buffalo (my HomeTown), its just a blah time of year.. so, i have one more collection, i guess u could say it all started with my iPhone, and a few contests.. and of course the job i retired from…school bus driving, all my down time was spent watching others… lol… just not on the bus, but it helped me hone in on subjects …maybe better:)
well that will do it for now, of course i could go on and on, and if spring doesnt hurry up and get sprung..ill be back with more of this.
all of these were done with my i Phone. and several different apps, on my phone.
if you stopped by, thank you in advance. have a pleasant week
well this is a terrible time of year, you never know if its going to snow..or turn into a warm spring. the sky around here is usually a dull grey ..so ive enhanced that part of my tour today. a little history.. about High Falls, and Browns Race
The High Falls are one of three voluminous waterfalls on the Genesee River, that flow through the city of Rochester in New York. The High Falls are located about 2 miles upstream from the lower falls and act as their source. The High Falls area was the site of much of Rochester’s early industrial development, where industry was powered by falling water. Browns race diverts water from above the falls and was used to feed various flour mills and industries, today the water is used to produce hydroelectric power.
The High Falls may be viewed from the Pont De Rennes bridge, a pedestrian bridge that spans the Genesee River a few hundred feet from the base of the falls.
The High Falls was the site of the final jump of “The Yankee Leaper” Sam Patch who died after jumping off of the High Falls in 1829
there have been many attempts to start restaurants and coffee bars, bowling alleys even, but for some reason.. Rochester,NY being so stuffy and conservative..nothing has ever work, thanks to the preservation committee for saving all these old buildings, and restoring them to their natural beauty. this building now houses most of the radio stations in this city. Seems that’s all that is sustainable in this Historic area. I’m glad its all being used, but it seems like such a waste.
this funny shaped building used to house a quaint little bar., it over looks the river. and if you continue walking…
Well about a week ago i posted a collection of Fences, today..i thought id share some Benches:),Yes another collection, and i might add a growing group in Flickr, as well as Face book. so let me get started by saying ive been collection these probably as long as fences, now most people who are not into photography will think this is strange, but just like my Fences.. ya just never know what your going to see…… through the eyes of a photographer… so here we go…
well that should do it.. for now:) think of me the next time your out side and go to sit on something:)
If you stopped by thank you in advance. and i dont mean to get political.. its getting just down right scary in the USA though!!!! have a wonderful rest of the week.
