17 of 2017: WPC

The Weekly Photo Challenge for the last week of the year is to choose a favorite photo from the year. One single favorite photo wasn’t happening. I thought maybe the top 5 would work. But then I figured my favorite 17 of 2017 would be fun. Some of these are favorites because the quality, some because the subject, some just because. I’ll caption each one, because I just know you are waiting with baited breath to find out why I picked each pic! In no particular order: Continue reading “17 of 2017: WPC”

A Peek into the Past: WPC

I can’t help it, I’m doing a second post for this week’s photo challenge. It’s a fun topic, I suppose. Or maybe it’s that time in the semester that I just need a diversion.

But I like taking black and white photos (and sepia, which also counts for this challenge). I never really have an excuse to post them though, as they never really work for what I’m going for. Now I’ll have an excuse to post the few I’ve taken and to take more.

Lamberton Conservatory

The voters have spoken and it’s a tie. As the vote for Lamberton came in first, I will post it first. But not to worry, Letchworth will be coming up very soon.

For those of you who are not familiar with Lamberton, it’s a small but very well kept conservatory in Rochester, NY. They’ve got a great variety of tropical plants like orchids and bougainvillea.
