Flowers in her garden

She designs her garden with color - flowers of intense pinks, cheerful yellows, deep purples and bright oranges. Dark greens set off the blues and reds. No flowers, however humble, is neglected - the daisy, phlox or day lily.  

Thanks for sharing your passion for color, design and flowers with all who walk by your urban garden.

Celebrating Diversity at the Rochester Public Market

Celebrating Diversity
at the Rochester Public Market

The Rochester Public Market is a mosaic of diversity, a vibrant mix of cultures and nationalities where Rochester natives and recent immigrants come to shop among colorful displays of locally grown fruits and vegetables, and to celebrate our area's agricultural and ethnic diversity. 

Celebrating Diversity is an exhibit of photographs I have taken documenting Rochester's ethnic, cultural, social, and agricultural diversity at the city's downtown market. The exhibit opens on Monday, July 18, with a reception from 5 - 7 PM in the Lower Link Gallery, Rundel Library, 115 South Avenue, Rochester, NY. The exhibit will be on display from July 18 to August 31, 2011 during regular library hours.

I have been photographing at the Rochester Public Market since 2006. Also included in the exhibit are photographs of visits I made to several local farms. The exhibit is free and open to the public. Please check the library for its summer hours.
