My brand new Canon RP. This recalls another mirror shot I took when I first got my other mirrorless, a Canon PowerShot GX15. They've both gotten plenty of use, while my faithful Canon 40D is living out its sunset years with Erika.
First snow on Erie Canal path
I was just messing around with the RP, and clicked the shot of Chris and Thor. If you zoom in (at least at original resolution), you can see individual cat hiars. Amazing what going from 10MP to 26MP will do.
Erika holding a salamander she found. "She turned me into a newt!"
These are trees next to the cabin. I'm standing almost in the firepit.
A slightly different angle of the same trees.

Winter trees at Tinker Nature Park
Hibiscus by our front steps, planted by Chris.
Not sure what these are, but I spotted them on my commute on the Erie Canal in June.
Seen on July 4 at a Roc Freedom Riders bike ride. I had to take a pic for my cat-loving anti-racist daughters.
Frederic Douglass at Highland Bowl. I took this while looking for a way to honor George Floyd.
Heading up Route 30 to the BnB we discovered in North Creek, near Gore Mountain. It used to be a cabin for ski instructors at Gore.
Another shot of the brook.
More brook rocks
This is just slightly upstream of the closeups. I'm standing in front of the cabin—the road is just behind the trees.
I couldn't decide which crop I liked better.
Four legged boatswain spotted on a Sunday morning canal ride with Chris.
Brilliant green trees mirrored in the canal on another Sunday morning ride with Chris. September 6
More of the trees and a nearly cloudless sky
Forget-me-nots in the front yard. I thought these were planted by my sister, Marty, but she claims not to have. MIght have been Mom. They remind me of her at any rate.
The Japanese Maple Mom planted to replace the old sour cherry tree is a favorite subject, especially when the sun shines through the leaves.
More Japanese Maple against a perfect, cloudless blue sky.
One of the elephants at the Seneca Park Zoo. Their looks have such character.
A lioness at the Seneca Park Zoo, enjoying a sunny day in June. I love the little bit of tongue—just like a house cat.
A country kitchen at the Genesee Country Village and Museum (I forget which house). We got memberships this year, and went many times as a family. It's Erika's (living museum girl) happy place.
Another shot of the same kitchen at GCVM. I love the soft, natural light.
Another shot from GCVM opening day, July 3, 2020. Not sure what the flowers are, but they were pretty.
One of the younger ox team at GCVM. They like to annoy the old men.
Silver Ball Field at GCVM, opening day. Corn is knee high (at least) in July.
Silver Ball Field, going for interesting composition. I'm standing more or less on the first baseline.
Up close on the grass at Sliver Ball Field. I don't know if this is a grain or just field grass grown up long.
I was enjoying this bit. It was a gorgeous day for pictures.
Some serious Simpsons clouds. This was taken from the wagon track leading to the ballfield.
A windmill in the Gaslight district at GCVM. I don't know if one of these would actually have stood in a 19th century village, but it certainly would have been at home on a farm.
Parlor at GCVM, July 25
A parlor and music room at GCVM, possibly in the same house. I especially wanted to show the texture of the lace curtains.
Queen Anne's Lace at GCVM, August 1st
Natalie spotted this framing. I think this is a cow, although I've seen them playing in the same pasture as the oxen.
Just s slightly different version of the previous shot.
Balm of Gilead Brook, in front of the BnB. It runs down from Balm of Gilead Mountain to the Hudson river (about a quarter mile downstream).

This was Color Day at GCVM, so I shot a blue (cerulean?) wagon.

Flags at the annual Field of Honor at Mercy High, honoring fallen first repsonders.
Another shot from the Field of Honor. This tradition began to honor those who fell responding to the Twin Towers on 9/11.
Family trip to Letchworth. It had been ages since we'd gone, and it was another chance to give my RP a workout.
