I was gifted time with a herd of Feathered Drum Horses. These majestic large breed horses are gentle and expressive.
I am super excited about the fact we live so close to a really unique attraction to NY. It is called Animal Adventures. It has animals from all over the world and they are available to be pet and fed and you stroll around the park. They are always improving and exhibiting new animals.
We have seen and touched animals that we would have never had the opportunity to do anywhere else in the world. What a fantastic resource. I am super thankful to the owner/founder Jordan Patch. He is an animals super hero.
I am fortunate enough to have several race tracks in our surrounding area. I really wanted to play with my camera and this was the perfect opportunity. Cool Cars! Smoke! Lightening speeds! All around good time.
I brought R. with me so she could play with her camera, too. I didn’t get to play with my shutter speed since I left my tripod at home, but I still got to experiece following cars along there path and seeing some great cars!
We were very fortunate to have had the B-29 Bomber, the last one in operation, come to our local airport for a viewing. It was a very coolsite.
I got lots of neat pictures of it and the C-47?. We were able to go inside the under belly to see the bombs and inside the cockpit. We didn’t get into the cockpit since the climb was too much for us, but it was totally worthe the hour or so wait.
The entire time we were there, they were maintaining this beautiful plane like royalty. What a treat!
I have been to several car shows in the last few months. I am not particularly drawn to cars, but I am trying to improve my skills as a photographer. Cars are an easy teaching tools. They don’t move, well, when parked anyway. They have great reflection properties. And they can’t complain. 😛
Here are some of my favorites from the Greene Cruise Ins and the Port Crane Fire Dept BBQ.
Our favorite fair is the Firemans Field Days is Appalachin, NY. It is simple and fun. This time I brought the girls with us. I laughed so hard riding the twister ride over and over again my cheeks cramped up. LOL
I introduced the girls to fair food. DEEP FRIED OREO COOKIES! Nom nom nom nom. T. got to shoot a BB Gun and Paint gun, which made him happy.
We got there way early on the opening day due to lack of proper advertising for the event, so I took some realy neat pictures of the empty fair grounds and rides.
It has been over five years since we have had the pleasure of enjoying this lovely small local zoo. It has just opened for the season and I plan on attending several events they have planned for this year.
It was so fun getting acquianted with the old and new animals. I also was fortunate enough to have had my parents along with me, as well as R. We got to play with our cameras. The days weather was perfect and the animals did their best to cooperate. Netted cages really suck for autofocus. 😛
Here are a few of my favorite images of the day.
