Updated Photo Website
I post what I consider to be my best photos on www.gratefulheartphoto.com. I have simplified the look and navigation of the site as well as added a new portfolio which contains images from my photo show at Mendon 64 last year. The portfolio, Two Miles From Home, displays images I have taken within a two mile radius of my home in Henrietta NY. I never really thought about it before but I have accumulated a number of interesing images without the need to travel very far afield. Click here to take a look at the new site.
This summer we were on the rooad for about three and half weeks. In June, we went to Charlotte for grandson Aidan’s high school graduation. We drove down because we wanted to spend some time in Virginia with Tom and Sarah and then three days in Delaware visiting several public gardens. In area we visited there are more than 40 public gardens, most of which were founded and developed by members of the Dupont family. You can learn more about this trip by visiting my 2019 trip blog here.
In July we took a two and a half week driving tour of the midwest with stops in Michigan at Mackinac Island and Appleton in Wisconsin to visit Meg, Heather, Peirce, Bronwen and Harry visiting from England. From there we drove to Maize Kansas to spend time with cousins Andy and Lois Sciolaro. Then we headed back north to Kansas City for a week to visit family and to watch grandson Brock Pickett compete in the national youth soccer tournament. We are home now but looking forward to five days in Vail Colorado for a BeadforLife conference and then a couple of fun days in the mountains.
