Okay so I lied. I wasn't going anywhere on Championship Sunday. I did pullout the minolta and took a couple of shots on my way to pick up some takeout. The snowy benches were boring but the digital zoom on the S414 reminded me why I like it so much. No way I get the man on the moon with the 18-70 Nikon.
I like living in Yonkers. It offers me the best of both worlds. Quiet, clean and spacious and in close proximity to the city I love. But during storms like this I might as well be in a different state. Hopefully I can make my way to the city tommorrow. In the meantime check out some storm shots from joesnyc, rion.nu, meccapixel, Overshadowed, 990000, and a nice set from our sister city by dragonballyee.
I know it's traditional to have some shots of fireworks on the fourth but for some reason I couldn't get to any this year. Dealing with woodchucks and trimming lawns was the order of the weekend. Every couple of weeks Rabia's garden explodes with a new crop. It seems to me that fireworks is our attempt to create in a split second what nature povides for us in one long continuous loop.
I've been very busy with a project at work and haven't been able to shoot as much as I'd like. So I thought I'd post some shots that haven't made it into the post for their day but which I thought represented some of the 10 best days type of weather we've been having in New York.
This weeks Spring star is the Cherry Blossom. From Buchanan to Mamaroneck they are in their full glory.
It was one of those days. I covered over sixty miles. It was a gorgeous day and the light was great but I think I need to get back to a less floral enviroment. The Spring foliage is so distracting it's hard to see anything else. Still, it beats dodging helicopters in Brooklyn.
