A Little Piece Of Brooklyn

As of Dec 7th I am taking off for a new adventure! No clue where it will eventually lead me, which scares the living shite out of me. One thing I think of often in my last week in Brooklyn is how much I fell in love with Brooklyn. The neighborhood I live in now is by far one of my favorites. Clinton Hill is absolutely gorgeous and has everything you want out of a Brooklyn neighborhood. This fall especially has been pretty epic, beautiful weather and amazing fall colors. As far as my blog goes, I really have no clue if I'm going to change the name or just start a new blog. That's a decision I'm going to have to make soon, but for now I'll keep posting my shots of my last few weeks here.

How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful

        Took our annual trip up to Bear Mountain! Man was it beautiful this year. Last year there was pretty heavy cloud coverage so it was hard to get to see the changing colors, but not this year. The sun was out and the clouds were almost unreal and it really helped with a lot of the shots having those clouds acted like the perfect filter to get shots of the amazing color change on the trees. I highly suggest to anyone in the New York City area to go.. CircleLine cruises takes you up every weekend and in October they do a themed Ocotoberfest cruise.

New York Is Strange

“New York is strange in the summer. Life goes on as usual but it’s not, it’s like everyone is just pretending, as if everyone has been cast as the star in a movie about their life, so they’re one step removed from it. And then in September it all gets normal again.”

Rain And Clouds.. A Photographer's Best Friend

It's either been either super humid here in New York or super humid and rainy, but today it finally broke and we got a decent day of sun and less humidity. The first shots here are from this morning on my rooftop and the last three are from yesterday in between the down pours all day. 

I did a little heavier of an edit on some of these, especially this one. I love messing around with Lightroom and finding new things to really bring out some drama in some of my shots.

New Lens, New Life

Momma got a new lens and it's fantastic! I've always wanted a wide angle lens and I finally got one. These are just a few shots from my twenty min jaunt around my block. Hope you enjoy! Gotta love some Brooklyn architecture!

Quacking My Way Through Prospect Park

Last week I got out on one of the few normal days we've had in the last few weeks. Weather was beautiful, no humidity and by the time I arrived home there was actually a chill in the air. All of this ended the next day when humidity kicked in and New York City went back to being the swamp it originally was. I did get a few good shots of the sun going down. There was this beautiful pink hue over the whole lake. It was so relaxing and calm. It made me forget I was in Brooklyn. So here are some shots of the night.. Hope you like ducks!

Park flowers.

Looking good.

Calm waters...

Why aren't you feeding me??

Only shoot my good side.

So calming.

Best friends..

The fam.

Enjoying the sunset.

Who Takes A Gowanus Boat Tour?

I was asked awhile ago to go on the Gowanus Boat tour and of course I said yes! It's not the most picturesque once you're in the canal but there's obviously great views leaving and approaching Manhattan.
But it was very interesting and well, smelly.. But I'll take any opportunity to see a place rarely seen by the public. The Gowanus Canal is a canal in the borough of Brooklyn, on the westernmost portion of Long Island. The boat tour itself was put on by Open House New York. They are a non-profit cultural organization founded in 2001 in New York City, to promote awareness and appreciation of New York's architecture, design and cultural heritage through year-round, educational programs. They do a big weekend (Oct 17-18) tour of places in all the boroughs of New York City where you get to see inside buildings and areas not usually open to the public. Enjoy! normally open to the public.
