Gallery Ninety-four: The Road to Chautauqua



I made the eighty images in this gallery on a journey through western New York State during the summer of 2015. It began amidst the thunder of Niagara Falls, and continued with photographic forays to important historical sites in the cities of Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, and Auburn.

After a visit to the world-famous glass museum in Corning, I spent a final week photographing and participating in a summer learning program at the Chautauqua Institute – an 800 acre community and conference center. This National Historic Landmark was founded in 1874. Its programs draw thousands to theme-based lectures, as well as music, theatre, opera, and dance performances. (We arranged our Chautauqua logistics through Road Scholar: www.roadscholar.org )

I present this gallery, as usual, in “blog style.” I display an oversized clickable thumbnail image for each photograph, along with a caption explaining how I intended to express my idea. By clicking on that large thumbnail image, you will be able to see the photograph in a much larger size. You can study the details, as well as have an opportunity to leave comments, ask questions, and read any comments that have been left by others. I respond to every comment, and hope you can participate in this dialogue. I welcome your impressions, ideas, and questions.
