Celebrate Rockaway (Borough)

On Sunday, Rockaway Borough had a street fair. Not sure if this is a first or not. Rockaway Borough is a very friendly, quaint town dating back to 1894. My family and I lived there for a number of years and had some very fond memories. It is a friendly, neighborly town-very small-only 2 square miles, I believe. It has an excellent school system and the typical sports clubs, etc.

I didn’t mean this to be an advertisement for the boro, much as I like it. It was a short, fun afternoon, with local food vendors, including Ava’s Cupcakes, who was a winner of Cupcake Wars. I had one of her peanut butter cup cupcakes and it was the most delicious cake I’ve ever tasted! The icing tasted like peanut butter, but better. I will be back for more!

The image is one I took of the horse drawn wagon that was giving rides. I love horses and never turn away from an opportunity to photograph them. I then processed the image with the new Simplify 4 from Topaz Labs. Definitely loving all the new effects they have provided. If you’re on the ffence about any of the Topaz Products, don’t hesitate. They are well worth it. Plus, they are always updating them and the updates are free. You can’t go wrong.

It’s late, I’m rambling. Goodnight.
