PAUL SMITHS – Landscape and nature photographs taken by Sandra and Edward A. Day are on exhibit at the Joan Weill Adirondack Library until Sept. 15.
The Days, a married team who are based in Nutley, N.J., took the photos during their journeys across the United States. The work on display includes shots taken in the Adirondacks, New England, Yosemite National Park and several other places.
Together, Sandra and Edward Day have more than 50 years of photography experience between them. When not shooting, Sandra is a jazz cabaret singer who performs in the New York metropolitan area; Edward is involved in video production.
He describes the creative process this way: "Often I hear the phrase, 'Ooh, ooh, Eddie, stop the car, I want to take a picture. Then I hear, 'Back up a little, turn the car to the left. OK, that's fine – no, no – turn to the right – wait – back up a little more. Never mind, let's just jump out and get that picture before the police chase us.' And we have been chased, but that's how we get some of our finest pictures."
The exhibition is free and open to the public. Summer hours: Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m.-8 p.m.; Friday, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Joan Weill Adirondack Library, which opened in 2002, is an award-winning structure that commands sweeping views of Lower St. Regis Lake.
At Paul Smith’s College, it’s about the experience. The college, whose campus is on the shores of Lower St. Regis Lake, is the only four-year institution of higher education in the 6-million-acre Adirondack Park of New York State. Our programs, in fields including hospitality, culinary arts, forestry, natural resources, entrepreneurship, the sciences, and many others, draw on industries and resources available in our own backyard while preparing students for successful careers anywhere.
