I went to Bryant Park today to try to get some pictures of ice skaters, but they have already torn the rink down. Don't they know it is still winter? They should have figured it out from the ice cycles hanging off of the fountain in the park. This is the shot that I submitted to my 365 group on Flickr.
And here is a picture of the entire fountain.
Took this Saturday night. My husband and I enjoyed some wine and watched a movie.
I see the flash reflecting in the glass, which is annoying me. I am really bad at photo-editing, but I just order photoshop elements, so maybe I will become better.

It is a beautiful full moon tonight. I was rushing trying to take this since it is about 20F out right now. I don't have anything larger than a 55-250mm lens. Maybe I will rent a larger one to try to take this again. That is, when it is warmer out.

I've been looking for some things around my house to take pictures of. I've been collecting corks in a vase for a project (to be decided), although I actually think they look kind of nice just sitting in the vase.

Here is the original:
In other photography news, I got my first invite to submit a picture to a Flickr group. It seems like it may be a religious group. They may have misinterpreted the irony of the picture of the cross from January 13th or maybe they think I need some help because they told me that they would pray for me, but I don't care. I'm still flattered.

While in the theatre district, I saw this. Do you remember it from the beginning of old Saturday Night Live episodes? It is really creepy in real life.
If you are having trouble reading it, it says, "SIN WILL FIND YOU OUT." As I said, creepy.
Please ignore all the noise in the photo. I needed to up the ISO to 1600 to have it properly exposed.

Here are a couple of pictures I took on my way to work.
And here is one of the Woolworth Building that I took in the evening on my way to work related event. I didn't get home until 3 hours after I took this.

Happy Birthday Mom!

But since she is 8, she wakes up quickly. I wish I had 1/4 of her energy. Here she is jumping on the bed.
Since we don't get to see my niece that often, we get to spoil her a little when we do. Here's a picture of her eating a very decadent ice cream sundae.
Uh, oh, brain freeze.

It's only Day 4 and I am already struggling a bit to keep up with this project. Today is the first day that I had to take a photo on a work day, and, honestly, I found it to be a little bit difficult. I don't have much time during the day, and it is dark when I leave work. But unless I win the lottery, I have a lot more work days that I need to do this, so I guess I will just have to be creative.
Anyway, this is a picture I took for one of the scavenger hunts that I participate in on Flickr. This covers "squeeze" and "tangerine." I know that the tangerine is blurry, but I am posting it because I like the way the drop looks coming off of it. Besides, this is a learning process and this blog is supposed to show my improvement. If all my pictures were great, there would be no point, right? The one below is technically better, but I don't think as interesting.

While I usually love to take photos of beautiful scenery, it is freezing here in NYC and I don't want to spend any time outdoors. So this weather is forcing me to take more pictures inside. I took my camera with me to the grocery store today, and while I got some strange looks from other shoppers, I think I got some decent shots. I took these with my kit lens. I am hoping to get a nifty-fifty later in 2010, so I would love to try to take these pictures again with a lower aperture.
