Autumn in WNY

I think the best time to see WNY is in the fall.  The colors of the hills and mountains is unbelievable!  Yesterday the family spent the day in Allegheny State Park (and stopped at the Ellicotville craft show on the way home!) and spent today at the Letchworth State Park (another big craft show then had to take pics of the falls).  This year, maybe because of the summer drought, the colors are especially vivid!  Here are a few of my favorites.

Please see my website: for more photos.  I am starting to run out of room here so I’m going to post more photos on the website!  Please don’t be shy! 🙂

Black and White and Color

I belong to a very active ATC group – ATC FUN.  And through this group I’ve “met” (online but not in person) LOTS of creative ladies and love following their blogs.  One talented lady, Raeven, had posted a few black and white images that she added color to (check out her blog here) and I thought it was a great idea! So….I selected several of my favorite photos that I’ve taken over the past couple years, converted them to black and white and printed them.  I added some selective color with pastels and here are a few of my favorites:

Twin Daffodils


To end a beautiful fall weekend, I spent the day in Letchworth State Park (called the Grand Canyon of the East) with my mom and my girls.  We first walked around their annual craft show and I bought myself and the girls some new earrings.  I have a favorite stand that I buy hand-made earrings and other jewelry from every year!  We had a few “fair food” snacks then continued to the park to the lower falls.  Nina and I walked down the 127 steps to the lower falls while Mom and the other 2 girls hung out at the playground.  Many pictures later we headed back towards home, stopping in Warsaw for lunch at a great little restaurant, Laurie’s.  My uncle and his girlfriend took me to this restaurant last year and I LOVED it so we make it our late-lunch stop on the way home from the craft show now!  And, of course, we had to stop for pumpkins at our favorite pumpkin place, just outside of Warsaw.

Here are a few of my favorite pics from Monday.  Please check out my 2011 photo gallery for more autumn shots of Letchworth!

A little black and white

While I love vibrant colors there is just something about black and white that I love.   I’ve taken some of my favorites and made them black and white…See more under the “Black and White” gallery.
