Turkeys and a Deer

On our way home from Letchworth State Park a flock of turkeys crossed the road in front of us.  We stopped on Akeley Road in Russell PA in front of the yard to which the turkeys had crossed.

When I took this picture I didn’t see the deer in the background.  My focus was on the flock of turkeys.  As I lowered my camera, after taking this picture, I saw movement to the left.  I saw the deer’s raised white tail disappearing out of my sight.  I looked at the picture that I had taken.  I was glad that I had captured a picture of the deer in addition to the turkeys.  As a bonus, the deer was looking at me!

 

 

Kinzua Heritage Arts & Music Festival 2014

I spent the weekend of August 22-24 at the Kinzua Heritage Festival at the top of Fox Hill Road in Russell, PA.

Harper and June’s paternal grandparents took them to the festival on Saturday morning.

I couldn’t spend too much time with my granddaughters, as I was “working”.  This is the fourth year that I have worked as the official photographer for the Kinzua Heritage Arts & Music Festival.  I photograph the event on a volunteer basis and have a wonderful time doing so.

Kinzua Heritage Arts & Music Festival 2013

I spent the weekend of August 23-25 at the Kinzua Heritage Festival at the top of Fox Hill Road in Russell, PA.

My personal festival highlight was photographing our twin granddaughters at the festival.  Harper and June’s paternal grandparents took them to the festival on Saturday afternoon.

Harper and June enjoyed seeing the Ox Hill Devons.
The girls especially liked hearing the oxen say “MOO”.

My favorite place to photograph the girls was in the Longhouse.

Flood Waters

There are a number of rivers and other waterways in the United States approaching, at or above flood stage. The Conewango Creek, which joins the Allegheny River in my hometown of Warren, PA, is one such waterway that is flooded. The flooding is more severe in Russell, a few miles north of Warren, and in the vicinity of Beaty Park in Warren.

A friend owns this kayak and canoe livery, which is located in Russell, PA.

There is not much clearance between the bridge and the creek.
