Is it Summer yet????

well we have had our share of ups and downs, weather wise… but i think we can say summer has arrived finally. im still doing my Hipstamatic , its kept me very busy. this week alone……we have prompts several times a day, to post what we are doing in that moment… that started friday evening, i was good, but im slipping, i think Ive missed 2 since yesterday.. busy week end, with a bank holiday, our Memorial Day.

Road Trip
the foot hills of the ALLEGHENY MNTS
roughly 2 hours later we arrived at our destination
ive never seen nicer parking garages

Corning ,NY is the manufacturer of Glass and ceramics. But back in the day it was coal, and lumber.we specifically went this past week end, because they were having a “glass fest” lots of Glass blowing and ceramic making.. all kinds of artsy stuff. not the run of the mill festival.

of course i must have been late to the party,cuz i saw no glass blowing on the street.
the cleanest and quaintest town ive been in ,in a long time.
one of the little on- site factories where glass is blown
so many pubs , and micro brewerys as well
well it was getting near time for some refreshment:) so the serach was on
and we had a winner. what a great name, now i wish we were spending the nite, instead of day trippin 🙂
so we had a little snack, and split this flight.

and i just had to share this little rascal , our “little” woodchuck… we have been trying hard to capture Him and take Him back to the wild..with no luck 😦 he is still living under our deck.So thats it for now, ill try hard not to be a stranger 🙂 and if you did stop by, thank you!!!

whats it gonna be….. Week 8

So my iPhone,iPad and PC are not jiving,at all ,

ive skipped a week on here.but im still very much doing a photo in Hipstagraph every day. each week is a different theme.

the one im posting is…all about..JUXTAPOSING…..  made me a bit nervous… mostly the word itself…  which means..only..side by side, mostly opposites,unexpected combos of colors,shapes,and ideas…..simply put especially for comparison or contrast.

here we go……..Km Salvatore (1)




and there you have it.  if I don’t think about the word itself, im fine:)

as for lenses and films we could use any combo this week, and on friday we will find out what the next torture wil be …lol.

if you stopped by, thank you very much. i hope you enjoyed and maybe learned something new? 🙂

Hipsta over a cuppa

Well its been a crazy week, lots of rain, and still rather cold here. a perfect time for me to sort and edit photos, I feel as if ive been on along journey 🙂 of sorts. memories with photos are the best!!!especially when the sun has gone, and the rain doesn’t go away.

So this past week our assignment for Hipsta365 was to use certain lenses..ones that don’t get used all that often… yes there are a handful I could certainly do with out..but here we go….hipstamaticphoto-578258445.036774-1

how could i resist tasking this shot.. this poor woman seemed to be hold these cones for such a long time, it was like she was trying to decide if she should lick them both or not:)  #Lenses  #Doris and #film #Blanko


there is NO SMOKING aloud at our Farmers market, it does’t matter if your outside or not. and this woman thought She’d sneak a fast smoke … little did she realize I saw her:)    #lenses #LeAllan and #film #Blackeyes44.hipstamaticphoto-578105881.203791

well Hubbys birthday was last week-end, so in Tradition we went out for a nice meal.. and i saw these antique banks sitting on the bar…. i don’t know how many people remember them, very heavy metal (maybe lead). anyway, quickly.. u would lay a coin in the hand and there was a gizmo in the back to pop it up the jesters mouth.and hed swallow it:) i remember cuz my gramma gave me one.. wish i still had it.anyway.. #lenses    #chucnky and #film  #DreamCanvas.  btw… dinner was deeelish “)
