Week 48, Day 333, March 28, 2010, Ithaca Commons

The Ithaca Commons is a unique part of Ithaca.  It has several interesting shops and restaurants.  Many times during the year many people will come and participate in the special events like the Chili Festival, and the Ithaca Festival.

Judy and I went to the Commons to stop at the State of the Art Gallery.  They were having an exhibit of local photographers.  What an incredible exhibit.  I hope to submit some of my photographs next year.

We also stopped at one of our favorite restaurants, Viva Taqueria. Viva is known for it's Mexican Food that isn't very authentic, but it is delicious.

I highly recommend both the Gallery and the restaurant if you are ever in the Ithaca area.

Lessons Learned:
  • I learned that I know very little about the various printing techniques.  I need to learn more.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/60 sec, Aperture f/6.4, ISO 200, Focal Length 19 mm, Lens Canon EF 17-40mm, hand held.

Sounds fun. There's a museum near my house that does a yearly exhibit. It's always a lot of fun to go check it out and see other people's work.

I love spending the day on the Commons. And Viva is one of my favorite places!!

Nice shot. Sounds like a fund day.
I need to get my printing skills up too. That's the only reason I haven't placed any of them yet. I think we need to do that.
