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.
