A note from the NYFalls.com founder:
Due to a company restructuring, I will be losing my full time job soon. Although it saddens me to leave the company that I have helped build up for the last 14 years to the success it is today, I am looking forward to new opportunities. I am known for my technical, managerial, and creative abilities, and I hope to utilize all of those talents in my next career. I put together a résumé outlining my skills and projects. Please have a look. Although I am open to any management position, I would like to leverage my experience and success with NYFalls.com and NYHistoric.com into a career in the WNY travel/tourism industry. If you know of a company that would benefit from someone with talents and experience, please spread the word. Thank you for your help and support.
Here is my Resume | Discussion topic

I love that photo. I wish that there wasn't a road in the background--it would make a neat print.

On the subject of how to photograph people..I have been known to hide behind many a tree! However the best approach I have found is to ask permission to take the photo. Most times they are happy to let me take the photo. Sometimes I will ask permission and take an address and send them a copy of the photo.
I was taking a photo of a bench in Pittsford and a little girl up and sat down on the bench. Her Mother was mortified! I asked if I could take her photo on the bench and that I would send copies of the photos. I did and she let me photograhp her daughter.
Hope this helps..Sandi :D

Sandi, interesting idea and glad it works for you. However, I bet it works better for women than men - especially when kids are involved. I'd be very hesitant to give my address to a stranger with a camera unless he/she could provide me with a legitimate-looking photography business card and/or I got a very "safe" vibe from him/her.

Congrats Bill! :up: Personally the old couple was the favorite of mine, but none the less you had a lot of great shots for this challenge!

Thanks everyone. I appreciate it. :clap:
