We went to Warsaw, NY this past weekend and did some window shopping at some of the finer antique stores. They’re colorful and interesting and full of photo ops. Though it was cold and windy, I had a good time wandering around.

Nice series… and nice images from the XP60. Traveling light or expecting rain… or both?
Thanks, John. The D600 is at Nikon for repair and I I thought I’d give the XP90 a go. I like this little camera as it takes a reasonably sharp photo and fits in my jacket pocket. It’s way better than my phone/camera and the jpgs have a lot of detail that LR5 can work on. Plus it’s waterproof and freezeproof (to 17°) and at under $100 (on special at Amazon) it a pleasure to use.
Freeze proof down to only 17? You need something hardier for Webster – Where life is worth living, don’t you? 😉
Not really, Paul. If it’s colder I stay home.
Isn’t it beautiful Ken! I love the window with old toys. Lovely series!
Ken, when I viewed the first photo with the sign for the WWI wood box, made in 1915, for sale it brought to mind what a similar shop window might hold in another 100 years from now. Perhaps an iPhone or DSLR??
Looks like someplace I’d enjoy poking around and finding those shots that interested me, much as you did.
Thanks, Earl. I always find interesting things in these windows. Sadly, some of the antiques I see I also remember from my own childhood (not the WW1 box, though).
As you know, antique stores are often a favorite place for me to flex my photography muscles.
Nice photographs, and I had to go look up XP90 . . . then realize you must have meant XP60 as I don’t see an XP90 camera. At $100 that was a great buy.
Thanks, E. I often get my 6’s and 9’s mixed up. It is the XP60. I wanted a small camera that was waterproof and easy to carry. Amazon had a special on it one day and I bought it on their special. For a simple point and shoot it does a nice job, better than my phone and it’s well sealed.
I still carry the Lumix DMC ZS3 I bought years ago when I go on a trip, but seldom use it. I might have to do another of my mega-research project to see if I want to start carrying a smaller camera, at least sometime, and actually use it. In the past the hangup was the lack of RAW files, but I think there are now a few PnS cameras that have that option.
Nice collection of images, Ken. And a shadow of your good self crept into the corner of one of them! Fascinating windows too – without reflections – that can be hard to achieve.
Thanks, Andy. I did my best to try to reduce the amount of reflections in the windows which, in these cases wouldn’t have added any interest to the photos.
Sounds like you had fun, Ken. I love going to antique shops as well, there is so much history written on every piece you see in the shop.
I agree, Gracie. Each object seems to have a life of its own and it’s fun to figure out what it is.
Thanks for sharing such wonderful images!
Thanks, Malin. This was a fun day.
I can actually see that (in your images). 🙂
What a great gathering of goodies, Ken.These images each tell a story and I am particularly fond of the creativity you showed while grabbing the “Historic Downtown Warsaw” shot. 🙂
I am inspired to visit some of the many antique venues in my area. These stores seem to create these “Antique Row” type of districts where one can browse and walk for hours.
Good stuff, Ken!
Thanks, Jimi. These small towns have some of the nicest shops for browsing. With the promise of nice weather, I think I’ll visit more towns and more shops, too.
