Rotary balloon Festival 2010

The Rotary Balloon Festival was held September 18th & 19th at the Lycoming County Fairgrounds in Hughesville, PA. The move from the Williamsport Airport proved to be a good idea. The fog from the river that plagued last year's even was not present. The weather was great and the balloons were able to take off. I posted several photos on my website. You can follow the link below to check them out. I have also included this year's link for the festival.

Penn State Arboretum-H.O. Smith Botanical Garden

I recently discovered the H.O. Smith Botanical Garden in State College, PA. The garden, located across from the law school on Penn State Campus, is a wonderous place to photograph floral and fauna. I especially like the lily pond. It is best to visit early morning or late to early evening when the light is not as harsh as during the day. Any overcast or cloudy day would also be a good time to visit. The diverse varieties of plants make it an everchanging sea of color. You will need to visit every few weeks to capture the changing landscape. It was recommended to me by a friend and I thank her for that. I have included a link to the aboretum for more information as well as a few photos from my last visit.

Canon Expo 2010 New York City

Every 5 years Canon showcases its latest products and prototypes that may become products in the future. Canon Expo 2010 kicked off at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City and includes stops in Paris, Tokyo, and Shanghai. It is an amazing assemblance of technology, innovation, and equipment. This years event included a fashion show, presentations by several of Canon's Explorers of Light speakers, including Robert Farber, Douglas Kirkland, and Denis Reggie and Corbin Bursen was also there to discuss the future of film using Canon HD cameras.
I was able to see the new 60D, the 8-15mm f4 fisheye lens, and a host of other new cameras.


I bumped into an old friend while in New York City this past weekend. I found Spongebob, outside of the M&M Store off Times Square. After a couple of photos and catching up on conversation, we were off again on our separate ways.
