These days I haven't been taking many photographs of my grandchildren. They really aren't cooperative. The minute they hear the beep of a recording device, they put on their blank, emotionless or worse scathing stares. They run away endeavoring to defeat all attempts to capture their joyous, carefree lives. As a Grammy, I try to give them their space. But, it isn't easy to watch all those precious moments go by undocumented. I know how quickly the magic of childhood passes. So, I sneak in a snap here and there. Someday when they are grown with children of their own, they will look back and appreciate their photographic history. This is my oldest captured while I chased her chasing bubbles.

Mount Roberts Tramway https://www.eleanorkayimages.com/blog/2014/8/mount-roberts-tramway Is was a wet and foggy morning in Juneau, AK. Due to schedule changes we had to cancel our whale watching excursion and were left with free time. From the ship we could see the Mount Roberts Tramway making its way up the side of the mountain.

After a short walk, we were on the tram and quickly lifted from sea level to 1800 feet. In minutes we left the cruise ships below in the Gastineau Channel and were lifted into the alpines and rain forest above.

Alaskan Sunrise https://www.eleanorkayimages.com/blog/2014/8/alaskan-sunrise We didn't see a lot of color in the sunrises and sunsets while in Alaska. Most of the days were full of fog and mist. Each were beautiful in their own unique ways. One morning for a few moments there was color in the sky.  I stood shivering and barefoot on my balcony to capture the one and only colorful sunrise on our cruise while my husband snoozed.

The Yukon Suspension Bridge https://www.eleanorkayimages.com/blog/2014/8/the-yukon-suspension-bridge I recently visited Alaska.  While in Skagway, I took a tour bus through the Yukon Territory into Canada via the Klondike Highway to visit the Yukon Suspension Bridge. I thought I would share a few snaps of the view from the bridge. Use your imagination to hear the roar of the Tutshi River below, the sway of the walkway beneath you and the buzz of mosquitoes about your head to get the full experience!

AOY Annual Juried Show PART II- Eleanor Kay Images https://www.eleanorkayimages.com/blog/2014/5/aoy-annual-juried-show-part-2--eleanor-kay-images As you can see from my part one blog post, there are more painting and mixed media works than photography is this year's show.  I felt honored to have "Twilight" juried into the mix, and to have my image included on the program and brochure.  Thank you for taking the time to view the show.  I hope you enjoyed it! :-)

This is the AOY Art Center where the show is exhibited.

Horseback Riding At Rainbow Ridge-Eleanor Kay Images https://www.eleanorkayimages.com/blog/2014/4/riding-at-rainbow-ridge-eleanor-kay-images It was very windy for this week's riding lesson at Rainbow Ridge. We scarcely had a lesson this winter. It is an outdoor ring and was not suitable for lessons with all of the ice and snow we had here in the northeast. Needless to say, I was relieved that my granddaughter was happy get back in the saddle:-)  Here are a few pics.

Eleanor Kay Images- Josh MacPhee Broadsheet Printmaking At PAFA https://www.eleanorkayimages.com/blog/2014/3/eleanor-kay-images--josh-macphee-broadboard-printmaking-at-pafa Through my work with James Daniel Burns and his "Rise And Shine" Mural on Broad Street in Philadelphia,  I had the opportunity to contribute images to Josh MacPhee's commission at the PAFA: Beyond The Paint Exhibit. The exhibit is a well deserved tribute to 30 years of Jane Golden's baby, the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program.

Broadboard: Josh MacPhee

I had the opportunity to attend a printmaking session and take a few snaps of the broadsheet printmaking process. As with all aspects of the Mural Arts program, the process involves the full attention of the artists and the public. It is all about building community. Here is a little peek.  Enjoy:-)

On this particular day little miss ran round and round the porch rockers as I chased her with my 50mm 1.4.  Easier said than done:-)

Eleanor Kay Images- Fun In The Snow https://www.eleanorkayimages.com/blog/2014/2/eleanor-kay-images--fun-in-the-snow The snow was too deep to walk through. It was up to my mid thigh. I was exhausted from shoveling. My granddaughter kept climbing on top of the snow piles yelling, "I am on the roof! I am on the roof!". To her the snow is pure FUN.  So down went my shovel and out came the camera. What the heck! Snow melts.  Kids grow up too fast!

Phillips' Mill is special to me because it is the first venue I ever entered.  This piece is ironically an image of the Phillips' Mill window. I was gallery sitting last year.  At the days end when all the lights were out, my husband pointed to this window and said, "There's a picture!". I agreed. So, I sent him out to the car to fetch my camera:-)
