Saratoga Springs, New York

I'm just back from a day in beautiful Saratoga Springs, New York (picking my older son up from his 3-week summer program).  I had a little extra time (my middle-aged bladder usually doesn't allow me to sleep much past 6 a.m.), so my Cannon 7D and I went out to explore the area.  The sign to an old diner caught my eye, and I was lucky enough to have a clear morning with blue skies.  Perhaps the older I get, the more charm & character I see in these vintage signs - a nice break from the familiarity of Home Depot, Target & McDonald's (I'm NOT lovin' it!).

Saratoga Springs has loads of cool shops - Saratoga Salsa & Spice Company, Bettie's Cakes (an deliciously awesome cupcake store, that makes you feel like you woke up in 1958...).  On our way to lunch, the cool collection of cowboy boots in front of Saratoga Saddlery got my attention.....
