Seasonal shots (of the photographic variety)

If you want to see the work of a blogger who really knows how to use a camera, I recommend Brooklyn Wolf's photos. I just fiddle around with a camera a bit so that I can enjoy seeing and sharing my own photos on my blog.

In the past week or so, though, I've learned something that should have been obvious. I saw some gorgeous blossoming trees in Riverside Park a bit over a week ago, but I didn't have my camera with me. By the time I got back there, most of the petals had already fallen from the trees. Even the tulips that I photographed just last Wednesday looked decidely past their prime yesterday. I've learned the hard way that a good spring view must be photographed within two days, or it may be gone 'til the following spring.

Thank you for the kind words. In truth, I'm just an amateur who experiments a lot and sees what works.

Keep in mind that for every "great" photo I take, I have a few dozen okay ones and a few hundred horrible ones. I'm only showing you the best ones. :)

Cheer up, Wolf--I haven't even figured out how to change the light settings yet. If I ever figure out how to shoot in low light, I'll try shooting some more photos in Grand Central, in the hope that they won't come out nearly pitch black. I love that place--they don't build railroad stations the way they used to.

Nah, I'm not upset. I'm proud of the shots I've taken. But I also know that I'm no professional.

Perhaps with more practice (and some real nice lenses... :) )

By the way, if you like Grand Central, you might like this shot.

I hope to get some more Grand Central shooting done over the summer.
