Shopping Local – Supporting Your Community….

Make-A-Wish-SmallOk – if you haven’t gotten all your gifts by now, you really are officially a “last minute” shopper!  But if you are in that bind – here are a few local merchants that I ran across at a pop-up shop  where I was hawking my fine art photos.  The shop was a part of Tarrytown’s 3rd Friday and was generously hosted by Jenifer Ross of the Watercooler in Tarrytown.

Fotos On The Fly – Sights of the season – SANTA!

Santa visits White PlainsMy latest and greats on my “Sights Of The Season” series – Previous installments can be accessed through my Holiday Season Archive of this blog which includes photos from Halloween onward.

Some photos are just plain FUN to take.  Santa is visiting White Plains on his vintage tractor!  After all, getting out all those Reindeer can be a challenge so backup transportation is sometimes in order.  And his presence certainly breathes new life into this great vintage tractor!

Love the imagination that went into this!

Fotos On The Fly – Sights of the season – A winter tree in a winter sky…

Winter Tree With Winter Sky

Sometimes the sights of the season reflect the cold of winter.  We are now near the solstice so the trees are all bare  and the sun sets early. I took this photo today just as the sun was starting to set.  The cloud cover over the horizon was thick and the cause of the darkness.  It just looked so dramatic against the bare tree, that I had to shoot it.  Yesterday we had a rather large snowstorm, but the temperature increase had melted the snow off the tree tops and all that was left were the bare branches.

Fotos On The Fly – Sights of the season – By the fireside…

By the fire....

I went to a wonderful party on Sunday afternoon.  The home had a large number of happy people celebrating the holiday season.  As the party wound down, I became aware of the cutest cat that I’ve seen in a long time.  Apparently, she had been keeping a low profile while so many people had invaded her home.  But as the celebrations quieted down, she came out of hiding and made a beeline  for the warmth and comfort of the fireplace.

Happy Halloween! Carlson’s of White Plains at Halloween

H Carlson Florist - White Plains NY

 

These days, with so much on the internet, local businesses benefit from the use of professional photography.  As much as local businesses have relied on word of mouth over the years, many shoppers go to the internet first.  If they like what they see, they may actually put the business on their list of stops.

H Carlson Florist is a wonderful example of a local business that has thrived over the years because they are truly unique.  Nancy Schellhas has  a way of creating arrangements and offering quality goods for the home and hearth so that it leaves your local Pottery Barn in the dust.   Outside, seasonal plantings dominate.  During the fall season there are the traditional mums along with a healthy dose of pumpkins, gourds and corn.  It is a natural place to come for the most famous holiday in the Hudson Valley, Halloween.  Located a bit off the beaten track on Dobbs Ferry Road right off the Sprain Brook Parkway in White Plains NY.

Enjoy the Halloween special slide show below…and for the complete album of photos, visit the album on my FB business page.
