I stopped by Jeremy's Ale House last night for a drink with some friends. It is kind of a "Hogs and Hefers" want-to-be kind of place, without the bikers or bartenders dancing on the bar. It is actually pretty quiet on most nights, even though they serve beer by the quart.
I think the black and white adds to the creepiness of the pictures, but I like the original color picture too.

Happy President's Day.
Aviation HIgh School in Long Island City has a bunch of military planes in its yard. I actually took this photo through a chain link fence. I used a low aperture, focusing on the plane, to blur the fence.
Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Chinese New Year.
Here is a picture of a break dancer at the 14th Street Station. I took a bunch of photos, but they really didn't come out too well. Because it was so dim in the station, I had to use a really low shutter speed to properly expose the photo, but then they were blurred. I finally took a few that were intentionally underexposed so that I could speed up the shutter, figuring that I would try to lighten it up with post processing. It worked, but it is still pretty noisy.

I like that I can see the snow falling in the following two.
Here is a picture of some ice cycles. Do you see the water drop forming from the one on the right?
And a picture of the drop falling.

I rented the Canon-50-200 2.8 L lens to get some action shots of my niece's swim meet. The L line is the best that Canon makes, and I can see the fantastic quality of the pictures it takes. Of course, it's biggest limitation is me. Lol. I found it a little difficult to keep up with my niece who swims at lightning speed. She won 5 out of 5 events that she was in!
Despite all the action shots I took, I am posting this one of my niece and her best friend. It looked like they were telling secrets while they were waiting for their relay to start. I think it is very sweet.
Saturday was also my niece's birthday, so here is one from her party.
I realize that I am way behind posting my pictures, but I have kept up with actually taking a photo every day. I was out of town over the weekend, making posting photos impossible.
Anyway, here is one from February 4, 2010. I was pretty busy getting ready for my trip, so we just ordered a pizza for dinner. I was trying to get a picture of the ooey gooey cheese.

This is how I felt after work today. It is also how I felt after I spent an hour trying to set up and take this picture without realizing that I didn't bother to check the background for clutter and the light from my neighbor's window. I really need to me more conscious of my surroundings instead of just focusing on the object that I am trying to photograph.

I finally purchased a pro account at Flickr so that I don't have to re-size my pictures anymore when I post them at Flickr. So, if you want to see one of my picture in a larger size, just click on it to bring you to my flickr page.
