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 .

Hipsta …

So I’ve started my journey of 365, a bit late, but, better late than not at all…

I think what I’ll do is post once a week, everything I’ve done for 7 daysStill playing with settings nothing too fancy

Autumn Splender

As far as weather goes, well im pretty lucky to be living in Western New York, at least this fall.The weather has been outstanding. Here it is the middle of October and theĀ  temp is 77 degrees. and sunny. so ive been trying to take full advantage.Ā  Not only is thisĀ  a colorful time of year, but if you love pig roasts and clam bakes..tis the season, and that why i say autumn splendor:)

because we all know whats to follow….. all that white stuff, which i am not a fan of. soĀ  here we go. oh and PS if you thought you were going to see colorful leaves…. im sorry šŸ™‚

one of the best things about this time of year……Ā  people tend to do pig roasts and clam bakes..2 of my most favorite things……

people put hot sauce and butter on theirs.. not me just let me at ’em.
this is our friend who invited us.. hes friends with the people who put this event on every year, no charge!!!
there were people from all walks of life there, but they all had one thing in common….


this woman…Ā  actually made all that sausage, and smoked them. and yes they were deeeelish.
this is the hubby of the woman above, its not their part either, but he was help with the clams. nothing like good friends.


there was even live entertainment. and they were awesome.


i made a friend. 6 weekĀ  rescue.
and of course there was plenty of cheer to go around



its almost time.
Ā these were all shot with my iPhone. .people tend to get a little crazy when they dont know you and your flashing a camera around šŸ™‚
what we were all waiting for … omg… it was deelish !!!
i tried so hard to get a shot of the husband and wife that put this shindig on..it was near impossible, this is the best i could do and they aren’t even standing together, hubby is was over with his hand to his face. almost like he knew i was aiming for him….
they had all kinds of activities for kids. they even had an art table.
and i gotĀ  Steves back too… Him and His Wife Amy. If there was ever a prize for being the most gracious Host and Hostess , they would certainly win!!!

if you stopped by, thank you.

staying fit……

Well let me start by wishing everyone a happy Autumn, its been rather nice here in Western New York, temps have been in the mid 70’s and mostly sunny. all of our Falls are not this way, so I’m a happy camper at the moment. Makes my drives to and from Buffalo ,NY so much easier.

Things are not going as well as the family would like with my cousin ,so my mind has been preoccupied , and im also trying to stay on top of things ,as i said b4 in my last blog, you must take care of your self, get you flu shot, get your screenings..all of them!!! its so important.


So now that ive taken care of all of that… i have also joinedĀ  our community center, for water aerobicsĀ  at the Aquatic center. we are so fortunate to have this beautiful building…here, let me show you….

they also have child care, and this is the outside of the little playground for the little peopleĀ 
this is where the older “community” gathers.Ā  as thy offer field trips, and also serve lunch, and they have card games as well
ok, let me get into my locker room
another part of the center, they have covered everything



yes thats my legs, the current pool is too rough to go with out water shoes.

the current channel
try walking against that current ..its not as easy as it looks or sounds
heres the little guppies, they have classes for all ages and at all levels, i actually got to see this class, they have been coming for a while.
class will be starting soon


and when its all said and done.. about an hour… you can go take a nice hot soak .
they also have free days where parent can bring the kiddies to go swimming. it really is an amazing place..and to have it right in my backyard..
Ā its all so affordable, i was very surprized.

well that pretty much sums up what ive been doing 2 times a week, trying to keep my mind busy and getting fit at the same time:).

the center along with the town also have a fantastic concertĀ  series, for a few dollars, some times for free.

thanks for stopping by. have a wonderful rest of the week… and HEY…if its time for you to get an annual ..DO IT!!!!!!
