Baldwinsville Marianne Miles has been photographing just about everything that has happened in Baldwinsville since she moved here 16 years ago.
Early this spring she was contacted by Gate3Design, the graphic designers who were involved in redecorating the Applebee's Restaurant on Route 31 in Clay. They really hit the jackpot when they tracked down the photographer whose work graces most of the village websites' homepages.
After purchasing more than 150 pictures from her, the designers created several collages to adorn the walls as wallpaper, posters and framed prints.
The grand re-opening and re-decorating celebration was held at the facility last Wednesday, Sept. 5.
Stop by and maybe you'll see yourself in one of the crowd shots at the Polar Bear Plunge, Memorial Day Parade, Rotary's Seneca River Days or the Carp Tournament.
When asked about the display Miles said, " After seeing the many school sports pictures that went up, which I did not take, I was afraid that there wouldn't be room for many of my photographs. Amazingly, there are two entire walls made of about 90 percent Milescapes Art & Photography shots, several poster collages and about 40 framed prints.”
“And the entire area is represented - not just B'ville,” Miles continued. “There are scenes from Fulton and Liverpool, too. What a wonderful idea for Applebee's to feature our communities this way!"
