Upstate Summer: Dog Days

Dogs of summer. The dog days. We found this guy in a little alley in Hamilton, waiting for his owner. Let sleeping dogs lie, as they say. 
Hamilton, NY on a bright July Sunday

Although citizens of the Utica area often say nothing is going on around here, I find walls like this one wherever I go, filled with event flyers, news of exhibits and shows, sales, etc. Maybe we need to ask ourselves how we define "nothing." Or, conversely, how we define "something."

Upstate Summer: Oneida Lake

You might enjoy a good gossip in the shallow waters of Sylvan Beach,
or get yourself a tattoo, wine, or some worms at the other end of the lake in Brewerton.
