Water Lily

Water Lily 8x10

This was made the other day at a local pond. I am considering putting a print of it into a local nature art show in a couple of weeks.


Gardens of Marsh – Billings – Rockefeller National Historical Park

We really enjoyed the gardens at the Marsh – Billings – Rockefeller National Historical Park. Our favorite part was the sailboat sundial. Neither of us had seen anything like this before.

Guest Photographer: Celeste

Celeste's Flower

Today we have a guest photographer, Celeste, a student at the Centro Escolar Margarita Durán.

I had my camera out and she asked if she could use it. For me, that’s a bit like loaning out my right lung. But Joaquin assured me that she had taken a photo class sponsored by the city. I handed over my camera and she made a first shot of this flower. It had potential. I showed her aperture priority, how to dial down the f-stop, and increase the zoom to blur the background. The result, I thought, was pretty good. And so I thank Celeste for her contribution.
