My mint is coming in!
Penny, gettin’ her lens time!
Kristen and I took a trip to the Conservatory at the LCMP’s Miller Nature Preserve in Avon. I had to find something with some color to shoot, because everything outside was wet, colorless and boring. Having been there before, and knowing what I’d find, I had to take a different approach. With the exception of very few shots, I took all my photos on the aperture setting. Pretty happy with the results.
While there are some really sweet photo ops this time of year, I’ve missed out on a few due to work or it just being horribly cold. Crashed out and recovering from a recent stint of night shifts, both of our cats, TJ and Penny, came up and joined me. Wanting to dust off the camera, I grabbed it and started firing. Both were patient (and comfortable) enough to let me.
This time of year I try getting that one mind-blowing shot of a snowflake that’ll make me say “Wow!!” Still searching…
Hope the last one doesn’t make you go cross-eyed.
Yea, yea, I know the only Staten Island Ferry is in New York, but I gotta keep the series tagged the same, ya know?
FAO Schwartz is a fantastic toy store. Huge, lots of different toys, and a lot of fun if you have the time. We were shopping for my brother’s kids, and we were hungry. The store was really busy, many out-of-control children…but it was a great place to visit.
THAT is a FIVE POUND Gummy Bear.
