Today, after class, I got a slight tour on the way back to where I am staying. Ithaca has a few waterfalls and we stopped at two of them. I can't remember the name of the first one but what a lovely scene!
The second waterfall was less dramatic but lovely nevertheless. Buttermilk Falls - isn't that a delicious name?
Nearby, an old house that called to me. I peeked in the windows and was sad to see that it really was abandoned. It must be owned by the parks department but I suspect it will sit there forever more,untouched and uninhabited. As always, I find these buildings much more captivating than the beautiful landscape. Why?
Earlier, the gelatin printing class had been a big fun fest. Botanicals were abundant: here are just a few. Look at that detail!
Not botanical but very organic-looking.
broken pieces make an interesting composition.
And then there was the syringe work. Here's Maureen at work.
And here is one of her results.
Other people loved the syringe, too. And it added some nice accents to a number of pieces.
Weekend's over and in the morning I will stop to see my friend Bill, who lives here. Then I'll continue on my merry way and will hope to be home before rush hour hits.
