Week 5 hipsta 365

So most of us know that April is the month where our senses wake up… also our allergies🥴, but that also means the weather is getting nicer, and it’s staying light longer. So for last week we had to post things for spring….

Every year with out fail, just b4 the lilacs bloom, we get to see this lovely trail of Daffies. #LincolnLens and BlankoBl4Film is what I used.

And it wouldn’t be spring with out these guys:) I love nicnaks in my garden

#StavrosLens and #HackneyFilm

We were fortunate enough to climb into the mid70’s for a day, I live near3 colleges, and I believe I found one student playing hookie 😂. By the canal.

#AntoniLens and #DreamyFilm

Can ya smell it… the lake that is…..😂. All though it wasn’t in the 70’s any more it was still a very nice day along the lake. So still , caught a little fog, and some fishermen too.#wonderLens and #W40Film

This is probably my favorite shot. Of course it has a bench… I collect them you know😉

#NevilleLens and #DaydreamFilm

Finished cleaning up the beds and came across this …. I loved the color

#VicuńaCL Lens and #BlankoFilm

And on another walk we found Mamma Swan waiting for her babies to come

#LowyLens and #OttoFilm

And now to share my the newest member of our family……..lol

This little guy has been camping under our deck for some time now. He dug a hole in the beginning of fall, we thought he left… but.. there he is, He heard a noise, and he’s moving as fast as those little legs can carry him, back into his hole..under our deck.

Lol, this was mostly for Fraggy , since she shared her mice.🥴, I thought I’d share our new homesteader 😂😜

If you stoped by thanks so much. And please have a great day.


Hipsta…. Part 4

Well this past week, was a bit of a struggle for me, as our assignment was TREES, don’t get me wrong i love trees. but right now, they are all bare. anyhow…. besides looking for trees new and old. we could only use 3 lenses, and  film or flash we wanted., so i dug and i dug deep. and this is what i got.   of course by last nite i was really into the swing of things… i say of course becuz, tonight we get out new assignment.hipstamaticphoto-576962523.550015

well my usual walk along the Erie canal. i used  #Tree

#Stavros for the lens and my choice for film was   #La Seine and the birds came from another app called distressed FX.

last years floods along the lake and river… #Trees  … Lens #Gregory ~ Film #Indo 80 and Flash #Apollo.

the bay had over flowed so bad in  that area,   its  no longer used as seating at this restaurant . i guess the ground never recovered for that purpose.


till next week… if you stopped by, thanks in advance. and if your an iPhone user, i hope this may have helped you with the Hipstamatic  app .

A long Walk along the River


So, we were fortunate enough to enjoy a beautiful Spring Day Yesterday.  High 60’s , and sunny, for this time of year, we were all basking in the sunshine. so after Hubby and I did a little more yard work, we ventured out. to the other side of town. He’s still learning how to use my mirrorless camera, by the time we leave for our med. cruise, he’ll b in good shape, i think.33725034568_bb307c76d8_o

ok, to continue the journey ,once we parked the car, we had a hike… with a hill, doesn’t look like much here, but my knees felt it:)


this park is along the Genesee River, in Rochester,NY



places for people to sit or fish… actually in the warm weather people can tie up their boats  and have some time to look around, in the summer months its pretty crowded.


dave hunting for a good shot.. or something:)


seems ive screwed up somewhere… and can’t post the whole view.. so ..on with the hunt for wild life….46686457985_b52f17499d_o

the frogs were croaking up a storm, can ya see him?


and tons and tons of turtles…. my guess is turtle eggs are a delicacy for the Canadian geese:)


then we found Her…. primping her nest, like a mad woman.  but never moving her body. and then we saw why


Daddy swan, was in attack mode.. and this Canadian Geese was not going away



could have stayed there all day watching these 2. but nature was calling, in more ways than 1.  and i got my 10,000 steps plus 🙂


something i saw on the way back .


ok, getting close now…..one more hill. AND……DO

… what we do on the week ends:)

we enjoyed Calamari..Italiana syle..  and had a few brews 🙂 lol, one a piece. its pretty much all i can handle .

it was a great day in WNY, even though id rather be somewhere warmer, i made the best of it, and enjoyed it.:) Happy Sunday every one.

Beautiful spring week end

I’ve been teaching my other half how to use my mirrorless camera , so he can shoot when we go on our Med. Cruise .

We walked and walked, got almost our 10,000 steps in

thought we found an owl .. nope 😦

Lots of hills to climb, the water hasn’t been turned on yet, still have very cold nites here.

Lots of damage , hope as it gets warmer , it all get fixed . This is s very historic cemetery !

Well we had a great day , and my husband now thinks my Fujifilm camera is His…. wrong !!!! Anyway it was time for a late lunch .

First we went to College town , but the place we wanted to go to was closed .. so we moved on , not to far

Just down the street 🙂 and I was so hungry , I never got a photo of my Cobb salad , but it was deeelish, probably the best around !!

Well I hope you get to enjoy some time out side , as it is still beautiful weather here, and we need to do yard work today…. to keep up with the “Jones” lol if you stopped by thanks 🙂

Hipsta ..week 2… only 50 more to go

ive been having so much fun, going back to basics, finally got all the kinks worked out . and this week it was all about Tiny..people.  i thought oh boy this will do me in for sure. but just the opposite happened, i had a blast,


i used Jack London for my lens. and Rasputin for the film.


again i ended up with Jack London for my lens and clarity for the film, that’s the Kodak offices in the back ground. at one time they were the largest employer in Rochester,NY

Benches on Monday,

I’ve been collecting benches for about 10 years. And last week our temps were close to 70 degrees. A big difference from today’s weather (24 degrees)

Anyway, on my walks last week I found a few new benches on the. Erie Canal, in my Village . And yesterday I went back to the conservatory

I just got such an urge to smell a few flowers😊, every one here has the spring itch.

But it will b at least 2 more months b4 we see flowers outside.

Have a wonderful Monday
