St Luke’s and Hudson

Today I took a short walk to St Luke’ Garden and returned home via the Hudson River Park. I am enjoying my new Sony DSC-RX10M4 24-600 mm camera. It is nice and light to carry and the results are acceptable. Processed in Lightroom Classic CC.

Autumn is a season that I love and feel strongly.  At last I was able to go outdoors to make these photographs in these 3 galleries. I was laid low for a few weeks. I’m all better now.

Dawn near Sienna

In 1986 my mother took the family on a vacation to Sienna, Italy. We stayed at a beautiful old rustic farmhouse outside of Sienna. The first morning there I woke up at dawn and went for a walk. The soft air and light sparkled. I knew I was someplace special. I left the road and explored down a path. I saw through the cypress trees and magnolias a ruin with a fresco. I was overwhelmed—tears sprang to my eyes. It was so beautiful; words can’t describe how I felt.

I have only a few pictures that I took with a point and shoot film camera.
