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 “)

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

OutSide Art For the SOUL

Summer doesn’t last very long here in Western New York, and even then we all hold our breath in Hope that we do have a nice warm summer. So we try hard to do as many things outside as possible so on this day, after the Public market, while it was still rather early and No One to Bother ME!!! I stopped at our lovely Art Museum. It has One of the Largest City parks I’d like to show you.

a bit of History

Centennial Sculpture Park has recast ten acres of the Gallery’s grounds into a showcase of public art and urban space. In the Sculpture Park, you’ll find a new kind of ‘town square’ – a spectacular gathering spot located in the heart of the Neighborhood of the Arts and a destination for Rochesterians and visitors alike.

Four major artists were commissioned to create site specific work for Centennial Sculpture Park. Wendell Castle’s Unicorn Family provides an outdoor grouping of chairs, a table, and a lamp for visitors who like to sit and enjoy the passing scene. Jackie Ferrara created Marking Crossways, geometric pathways and cameos leading from the ‘quarry’ area to the front entrance of MAG. Tom Otterness, known internationally for his engaging installations created Creation Myth, two heroic figures at the corner of Goodman and University Street as well as 17 diminutive bronze muses scattered throughout the Park. Albert Paley installed Soliloquy, a colorful 25-foot stainless steel sculpture at the Goodman Street entrance.
