Corning NY ~ May 15 and 16, 2013

It’s always windy on the bridges crossing the Chemung River. On this particular day, May 15, I was crossing the bridge on my walk home following a hair cut. No, this is not the style my hair dresser gave me!

Elders exercising at the Corning Senior Center. The Chemung River is just the other side of the view out the windows.

The new transportation center is coming together nicely and should be open sometime this summer, I assume. Local busses and others that travel to nearby communities will now assemble here between Wall and Cedar Streets, along Dennison Parkway, to load and unload riders.


Photos for Corning NY Step by Step are taken with two cameras -- a Nikon and a Canon. Today I added a third camera to the set. The first three photos (hair, Senior Center, transportation center) were taken with the camera on my new iPad Mini, a Mother’s Day gift from my children.

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see. (John Burroughs)


A tree’s offshoots have been cut back.

This bush’s attraction was in the late afternoon light shining on it.

(Each photo can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

Flowers carpet a garden in a front lawn on Pulteney Street.

The appeal in this shot was the lighting and the flowers losing their color as they make way for the formation of ornamental fruits.

In Wegmans’ parking lot, the driver of a tour bus from Vermont cleans off the windows. Look closely at the trees to see the effects of the gusting winds.

  1. I especially liked this batch of photos and aren't you something! Miss Technology!! (smile) Love the hairdo photo too. That also made me smile. Enjoy the day!

    1. Thanks, Patricia. And did I see that you have another blog post up? That would make two in one week. Yay for you!

  2. Nice gift from your children. You will find Kathleen that iPad takes better pictures than your traditional cameras. My iPhone is only 5 pixels and my digital camera is 16 pixels and the cell phone takes better photos. Will that's my experience.

    We are also have windy days here as well,global warming :(


    1. The advantage, at least for me, is that the iPad display is large enough that I can actually see what I'm photographing.

  3. The iPad Mini seems to be making pretty good pics!
    Loved the quote :-) So true!

  4. Thanks, Carine. Glad you stopped by.

  5. These are amazing pictures you took with your IPad Kathleen!
    Love the one with the "gone with the wind" Hairstyle :)
    I usually take the pictures for my blog with my IPhone and if you have the right lightening they turn out quite well.

    1. Thanks, Daniela. I like the "gone with the wind" description you gave my hair pic! I now have Hipstamatic app on my iPad and have been experimenting with that. My son uses it on his iPhone5 and loves experimenting with it.
