Great pictures, keep up the good work. Is this what the PowerShot A570 is capable of?

Okay, the Citizens Bank Park photo tour is on hold for a while, since I have been busy with school. In the meantime, here is a picture that I took last week of Wilmington's skyline, as seen from southbound I-95 heading towards the city. There is a split-second time frame when the billboards, trees, and power lines clear well enough to get a good picture. This didn't turn out quite as well as I wanted it to.

Some of these pictures are with the A570 IS. The pictures from the Phillies game are with it, for instance, and the Philadelphia church picture is as well.

I'm going to Buffalo, New York, for a few days to visit my grandparents, so here is a picture of Buffalo to get me in the mood.

I've been there several times before, and it's good. They even have Yuengling there, my favorite beer.

Duff's is another very good wing place in the area.

I got back from the Buffalo area yesterday. I took about 450 pictures while in the area. Here is the first batch from my trip. These pictures are of typical houses in Tonawanda, where my grandparents live.

Here is a picture of a house on Fourth Street in Emporium, Pennsylvania. Emporium is in Cameron County, in the north-central part of the state. You can see my thread on Emporium HRE.

My map of places that I've been so far is slowly getting bigger. I've only scratched the surface as far as showing places in the Northeast US that I've been to. I have not visited other areas of the US as much, but I've worked a few places (such as the Southeast) in a little bit.

Delaware has only 4 covered bridges, and one of those bridges got destroyed from the one-two punch of Tropical Storm Henri and Hurricane Isabel in 2003, and has not been rebuilt yet.

Here are pictures of two of the covered bridges left in the state.


Smith's Bridge, on Smiths Bridge Road



Ashland Covered Bridge, on Barley Mill Road

Over the next week or so, I'll be posting my pictures from my drive from the Buffalo area to Delaware. Today's pictures are of a detour north into Niagara County, then continuing my detour east to Rochester.


The Wurlitzer Building in North Tonawanda.



A building in the crossroads hamlet of Pekin.



Entering the Tuscarora Nation of Indians.



Tuscarora Indian Mission



The view from Upper Mountain Road provided a stunning view of Toronto , Lake Ontario, and the land below the Niagara Escarpment.









Looking due north to Lake Ontario.





Looking north-northwest at Toronto.



Wide-angle views of Toronto.





Looking north-northeast at Lake Ontario.



Lake Ontario in the distance.



As I drove closer to Lockport on Upper Mountain Road, Toronto could still be seen in some places. Toronto is just visible in the very center of these two pictures.





A smokestack for a power plant or similar building, north of Gasport.



East Avenue, Lockport.



Farmland east of Medina on New York Route 31.



The Erie Canal from Gaines Basin Road, west of Albion.



The first Santa Claus school in the world was started in this farm house on Phipps Road, just west of Albion, by Charlie Howard in 1937.



Marshland on New York Route 31 near Fancher.



Approaching Rochester from New York Route 531.

It would be pretty neat to photograph Toronto from NY with a really long telephoto lens.

I would like to see what a telephoto lens could do from where I got my view of Toronto. I zoomed in as far as I could with my camera (7.7x) for some of those pictures, and a couple of them came out pretty clear for maximum zoom.

The next batch of pictures is from I-390 from Rochester to Mount Morris. Normally, I get off of I-390 at Mount Morris when driving to Buffalo, so I've never been on I-390 north of that. These pictures are from the stretch of Interstate that I've never used. They are in order going south.










A blurry picture of the village of Geneseo straight ahead.



The village of Mount Morris in the distance.

Today's batch of picturesis from Mount Morris to Painted Post. I took I-390 to the southern end of it, and then I-86 east until I reached Painted Post, at which I exited and took US Route 15 south.


Scenery south of exit 6 on I-390, looking east.











The village of Dansville from I-390.



A light coating of snow had fallen in the morning, and had not melted yet on the evergreen trees by afternoon. I should mention that this is the middle of April.



A wind farm is being built in the mountain tops just north of the village of Cohocton in Steuben County, east of the stretch of I-390 that is between exits 2 and 3.





More of the wind farm that is under construction, with some morning snow still left on some of the trees.





Still some snow left on some trees near I-86.

Today's batch of pictures is from Painted Post, New York, to Tioga, Pennsylvania. I use US Route 15 for this segment of my drive. I actually use Route 15 from Painted Post all the way south to near Harrisburg, but I have a lot of pictures from the stretch to Tioga, so pictures south of that will be later.


Scenery along US Route 15 just south of Presho, where Route 15 become a 2-lane surface road. In 3 to 5 years, this view from this road will be gone, because I-99 is being built from Williamsport to Painted Post.



The hamlet of Lindley, NY.



Scenery from the future old Route 15.



A barn just north of the Pennsylvania border; a roadside view of this farm will not be seen once I-99 is built.



The bridge over the Cowanesque River, just yards away from Pennsylvania. The sign welcoming everyone to Pennsylvania is in the distance, to the left of the bridge.



Route 15 enters Pennsylvania at the borough of Lawrenceville.



Just south of Lawrenceville, the road work on the future I-99 can be seen on the right. In a few years, I will be using that road, and be taking pictures from up there of the old 2 lane road.



Tioga, PA, as seen from the Pennsylvania Welcome Center rest stop.





Wide-angle views of Tioga.







The Tioga Reservoir, which protects the borough of Tioga and other settlements in the Tioga River Valley from flooding.



One last look at the borough of Tioga.
