I’ve got a new look.

I was getting a little bored of the old blog design…. What do you think? Not sure if its a little too white, but it’s summer so I guess it will do for the rest of the season. 😉

Here’s a couple shots from a visit to Sayville recently.

Help me choose

I went to the Huntington Tulip Festival today, even though it was raining. I wasn’t able to get too much before the downpour. I have a couple of images that I think came out pretty well. I’m going to try my hand at that photo contest, but I want your help. Of these two images, which do you prefer?

Leave your comments below. 🙂

another rainy day…

It’s supposed to rain all weekend. I hope it lets up a bit for the festival this Sunday, that would be disappointing, since this would be the 1st year in about 6 years that I would actually be able to make it there without work getting in the way. It would figure it would rain.

Also slightly disappointing, the Starbucks by me is closing down after next week.  Now I’ll have to travel a bit farther for coffee and free wifi.

Here’s another shot from the photo shoot in Stony Brook the other day.

A tigerlily, and Target strikes again!

😀 I love the bright orange! This is a shot from the Bayard Cutting Arboretum. Taken with my Nikon FM, and Nikkor 135mm f2.8, w/ circular polarizer.

side note… Target did it again!! Why do they scan my film upside down and backwards? Is it too much to ask to turn it over the right way? Maybe I’m just being picky… I don’t know. But they seem to process my film the best. Maybe its a sign I should consider a digital SLR. But, I love my little FM, and I’m not giving it up just yet.

I think its time I bought myself a film scanner. Anyone have any suggestions? (something not crazy expensive preferably….)

Taraxacum Officinale

Its been super cold and rainy here today…. and pretty likely to continue for the rest of the day. I like rain, but today all I want to do is sit on the couch and nap. Perfect weather for a blog post, and maybe a hot cup of coffee.

I have a secret love of dandelions. I like the fluffy yellowness of them. And the puff ball of seeds. Its a sign that summer is coming, and that, for me, is always a good thing. Caught these fluffs on the way to work the other day, with my trusty Nikon.
