Life does go on- Realizations of Pennsylvania

September 21st, 2005 a little group was started on FLICKR named Realizations of Pennsylvania.  This group was started by a lovely camera obsessed female who had just joined a super photo sharing community.  As she jumped full swing into artisan jewelry, art councils, PA Wilds hub bub and opening a small gallery in an even smaller town in Pennsylvania, this little group was put on the back burner.

Even in my absence it is thriving with almost 10,000 photos.  I was all kinds of excited this morning to see the quality and amounts of photos that continued to be posted by talented photographers.

Pennsylvania is a super photo op, so think about joining in on the photo frenzy ; - ) HERE  We would LOVE to see your realizations!

Ending blog posts with a little something

Perhaps you have noticed the little photo strips down the bottom of each blog post lately.

I have used Flickr and Blogger since 2005!  That was also the year I purchased a Sony Cybershot DSC-H1 camera.  The Sony stopped working March 2010 which is when a Canon Powershot SX120 IS took it's place out of necessity.

This camera did the job but, just did not have the clarity of the Sony.

 Back in July after obsessively researching which one, which one I ordered the Sony DSC-RX100M3 and fell of course immediately in love.

I create the below strips of photos in PicMonkey and also use  this photo editing tool for the headers on my 3 blogs, FB, RebelMouse, ETSY, Twitter and Open Sky.  Earlier I made that new header above on this blog changing it up to something more simplistic.

When downloading photos to edit on PicMonkey, Flickr is one of the many choices to gather pics from they give.  I love being able to give some life back to forgotten photos.  

I can also make strips showcasing the gallery or shop where my jewelry is being sold along with those designs being carried seasonally.  HERE Laughing Owl Press in Kane, Pa.

Too many months of shots to sift through.  What combinations can you see yourself putting together from your photo stash?

walking around Warren, Pa. on a Sunday

I needed to take photos for a challenge I am involved in to fill in some of the voids this month so we took off for Warren yesterday.  We wanted to take the time to hike but, settled for the 'wilds' of Warren, Pa. taking shots of architecture, facades, landmarks and the Allegheny.
a photo of Pennsylvania Avenue West which is also where one of our fave old style restaurants is located, The Plaza.  I love their Greek food especially on Fridays and Saturdays for spinach pie w/Greek style salad. The pie is a layering of spinach, phyllo and a fabulous combo of chewy cheeses.
I am in love with the fountain installed 2010 as part of a multimillion dollar project for their downtown.
These roots are great of this beautiful Beech in front of what was The Jefferson Tea House when my oldest was a little girl we would stop there with my Brother and Mom.  We also love The Swiss Cross, both are no longer a part of Warren's downtown, very sad.
Great surprise coming upon The Crossing Cafe, closed on a Sunday but, definitely a must visit at some point.
great old metal sign from the 50s
photography studio find, love the signage and branding for Square Peg Round Hole.  Here is their facebook page. Great eye on life, talented photographer!
220 Hickory Street beautiful architecture New Process Building home of Blair.
fabulous clock that I have been admiring forever
This is looking down Hickory toward those beautiful stainless awnings on the New Process building. Another hidden restaurant/pub we need to stop at called Snuffy's Cafe & Lounge.  This is also next to the Crossing Cafe.
more of the streetscape towards the bridge off of Pennsylvania at sunset.
the railroad bridge from the base of the bridge.
heading back finally getting a photo of a cairn...not sure what it is marking the way for.
Ending the day with this gorgeous blue against the white.  The snow had a strange sheen to the surface as the sun was setting...I could not quite catch the emotion I was after.  I am still pleased with the shot.

21 day photo challenge

Recently I participated in Molly O'Bryon-Welpott 21 Day Photo Challenge in celebration of her upcoming 40th birthday, hoot, hoot ;)
This is my collection. I evened it out by adding one of my daughter and I and recent business card for mosaic maker.
I feel photo challenges are extremely helpful to my artisan jewelry business keeping me on task with promoting and experimenting. When you need to take a themed pic everyday, life and work intermix creating a fabulous mingling of life and work. In doing this.. banners, shop listings, avatars, blog posts, newsletters are built or in the works and also that ever so important thinking out of the box state of mind.

Route 6 Artisan Trail Exploring

To celebrate our wedding anniversary plus see what is up with the Route 6 Artisan Trail for Potter County in Pennsylvania we headed to the Galeton Art and Music Fest.
We arrived at our cabin at The Ox Yoke Inn Friday evening and stayed until Sunday. We drove around the little Berger Lake which is in the center of town and then came back to a nice broiled seafood platter for me and a steak dinner for dh, both absolutely delicious.

Our cabin is the second one in on the left

Isn't this fun
We also checked out the Pennsylvania Route 6 building and spoke with Executive Director Terri Dennison. I know Terri through the Pennsylvania Wilds Artisan Development Group and talked about other artists to visit on our vaca that we had juried in a couple months back for the Pennsylvania Wilds branding.
I will write more later and put up some of the lovely work and artists we found on our journey through the Wilds and Route 6 Artisan Trail.

Black and white

front of the restaurant, originally uploaded by mossnbeads.

I watched last week on the Ovation network an entire week of photography specials. I feel that B & W photography does lend itself to another layer of understanding.
This is the front of Bistro 188 that I took yesterday, of course originally in color on my digital and then changed it over on Picnic.
Has anyone been experimenting with Picnic?
It is a very user friendly program.
Thank-you Flickr!

"Stare, pry, listen, eavesdrop. Die knowing something. You are not here
Walker Evans

Press Release

JOHNSONBURG – Documentary photographer Walker Evans said, "Stare, pry, listen, eavesdrop. Die knowing something. You are not here long."

This quotation is the foundation of the artist statement for “Transient Moments” – a photography exhibition by Katie Weidenboerner. The show will open Nov. 3 at the Flemish House Art Gallery, Market Street, Johnsonburg.

The artist defines "Transient Moments" as the everyday moments defining: where we are, where we have been, and where we are going.

“As quickly as the world comes into place in that moment, it fades away just as quickly. But for that one frame I have a concise vision, realization, or appreciation of the millisecond I am standing in. I hope my audience can grasp something from it also,” Weidenboerner said. “In a world where the idea of time and its effect on our culture are both ever-changing and ambiguous concepts, my relationship with my camera has been a complex obsession.”

The show consists of: 16 hand-framed photographs which have been created over the last two years; a multimedia slideshow of photographs taken by 25 people answering questions about how they see their community changing; and a multi-sensory piece which recounts a journey to an Irish holy well.

“All of these pieces are works that are ever-growing,” Weidenboerner said. “I get up every morning, think about this idea and my photography and say to myself – I need to do this.”

Each photograph has a tone of documentation of the social climate of this region and the effects national and global topics on this region.

“Latent, dynamic, colorful, gray, abstract, straight, soft, aggressive - your world, as well as these photographs, are what you make them,” Weidenboerner said. “Join me to form, reform, or hold strong these images.”

Weidenboerner, 23, is the daughter of Peter and Lucy Weidenboerner. She is a graduate of Sarah Lawrence College, concentrating in Photography and Women’s Studies.

The artist reception will be held 7 – 9 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3, and artist meet-ups will be held 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17 and 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1.

Pumpkinville, NY with the Family

Last Sunday we took a little trip to Great Valley, NY to check out Pumpkinville and Ellicottville. I think that the wee child enjoyed Ellicottville more so than all the pumpkins. She did look adorable though in all the photo-ops.
Ellicottville has an awesome Art Show that they had the week prior with 150+ artists. Next year I think a few of my friends and I will stay locally and enjoy the event for the weekend. It is a gorgeous town with the shoppes such as Earth Arts and Kazoo ll.
