Foray at Thornhill 2012

Finger Lakes Professional Photographers had their annual picnic at Thornhill (Monroe Payne’s place in Ithaca).  Aside from the high heat and humidity, it was nice.  We had good company and the reenactors put on a nice little show for us.

We took a little walk through the woods while the reenactors had little stops set up.  It was a fun photo-op journey.

Members of FLPP take photos during the walk.

Monroe Payne and his wife and kids put on little vignettes at each stop.

Like I said, aside from the heat, it was a nice event.


On the way to Ithaca, I stopped at Hill Cumorah and the Whitmer Farm to let them know we have an opening at the mansion for the period during pageant.  Even though pageant is several weeks away, tourist are still pouring in to the sites.  If you know someone who is looking for a room during pageant, have them call us.

The Beckwith Mansion (http://www.beckwithmansion.com) is located in the Village of Palmyra.   Built in the early 1830s by George Beckwith, a contemporary of Lucy Mack Smith.  Today, the Beckwith Mansion and Estate are home to Brent and Elizabethe Walton and db walton – CAPTURING BEAUTY Studios (http://www.dbwalton.com). 

Heat Wave

It’s Tuesday, it is still spring, and the weather feels like late summer.  But, that’s okay.  My garden is loving it.  I will be harvesting cukes and peppers soon.  The garden here at the Beckwith Estate is doing well in this heat.

Tonight is temple night.  The Palmyra New York temple is a gem.  I love going there.

It looks like Tuesdays are shaping out to be photography client pick-up day.  It just seems to be working out that way.  And, this might be good.  One day for product pickup, a day for editing, and the rest for shooting.  I can live with that.

We had an opening on the suite in the mansion.  This means we may have the last room there is for Pageant 2012 in the Village of Palmyra.  So, if you know someone who is bummed out because they can’t find a room here, have them call us…. SOON.
