“Fill it up”

Who would have thought they’d find a “flame” in a Geiger Begonia blossom?

Many people today may not recall that popular phrase from a few years back when we would pull up to the pump at a gas station. Back in the “good old days” the stations actually had someone meet you at the pump and dispense the gasoline for you. Thus the phrase “Fill it up” was commonly used. I’m making use of it today to encourage folks to “fill” the workshops on my 2018 schedule. We just had a full house at the Everson Museum in Syracuse, NY yesterday and, just today, received the last registration I can accept for next month’s workshop, Flowers of Winter, at the Carol Watson Nursery in Lafayette, NY.

An Adirondack lake provides a great opportunity to use your polarizing filter, to deepen the colors and eliminate glare.

I’m particularly grateful that these have filled up because it heightens the opportunity for everyone to learn new skills and maximize the benefits and enjoyment of the workshop for everyone. Should it be that there are still others interested in a flower photography workshop let me know and I’ll try to set something up in the near future or you might want to check out the July workshop at the famous Sonnenberg Gardens in Canandaigua, NY.


Peaceful mountain streams are only the appetizers for our visit to the Shenandoah National Park.

Getting back to the “Fill it up” thought process, the other workshops on my 2018 schedule, from the Adirondacks to the Shenandoah National Park are receiving registrations, and still have opportunities available to cash in on an early-bird discount. So, check out the scheduled at: Upcoming 2018 Workshops.

So, whether you are interested in the the gardens, the Adirondacks or the Shenandoah National Park my suggestion is the same: Fill it Up!
