Snow Day in Central Park

It’s February…is it too late to say Happy New Year. I guess it’s never too late for that. Well it’s been a busy start to the year with work and family and a new puppy. I made myself a promise (not a resolution) that would find more time for shooting and posting and I’m already lagging behind in that promise.

I was invited last year by a photography Club here in Toronto to do a presentation on promoting your photography on social media. I’ll be presenting to them on Tuesday and I’m really looking forward to it. I did presentation on iPhoneography for this club last year and they’re a great group of passionate photographers.

I’ve also spent the last couple of years working on some personal projects and building a body of work. I’m going to connect with some galleries and curators in the hopes of breaking into that market. I’ll let you know how that goes.

I was in NYC the first week of January with my family. For the first time in all these years of travelling to New York I finally caught a snow storm. And what a storm, or a cyclone bomb as they were calling it. The city was still and beautiful. What a wonderful way to experience Manhattan. It was pretty rough walking around outside because of the wind but we certainly weren’t going to stay in the hotel room and unfortunately my husband and boys had no desire to be excess time outside just so that I could shoot to the storm. We came to an excellent comprise. We headed to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, they headed inside and I went to spend sometime walking around Central Park. It was tough keeping the camera dry ( I know, poor planning on my part as I didn’t have a cover with me) but it was so beautiful being there. I tried to find places to take cover and wipe of my camera. I ducked under this little bridge and to my surprise found the most beautiful little scene to photograph.

You have to look carefully and something complex and complicated gets paired down to one simple and elegant image.

Wishing you a Happy & Healthy New Year.

Heart’s Afire

If you look really carefully the rock formations become recognizable shapes and depending on how the light filters through the beauty reveals itself.

The Sands of Time

The sands of time cannot be stopped years pass whether we will them or not, but we can remember…….what has been lost may yet live on in memories, that which you will hear is imperfect and fragmented yet treasure it for without you it does not exist.

Twister

Antelope Canyon is one of those places that keeps calling to me whenever I would see pictures of it but being inside the canyon and seeing it with my own eyes is an experience all onto itself. The colours, the light…the crowds 😦

I am grateful that I took a photo tour. Without a guide holding back the crowds it would be impossible to get a decent shot. As it was we had approximately 1 1/2 to 2 minutes to set up and shoot each shot. I’m glad that we had started with Rattlesnake Canyon first as it gave me an opportunity to try different settings in a less crowded canyon and at a more relaxed pace.

In the end it was worth it. Here’s the first image I come away with. More to follow.
