Flowers CP July

Same hot day I photographed the insects in Central Park. There are are quite a few wildflower beds around the park. The Conservatory Garden is good for flowers too. I love the bokeh on the Nikon 105 mm f 1:208 Micro lens. No special effects. OK, so the last one is a tree.

Anemones on Governors Island

The new Hills on Governors Island are nice and green now and there are wildflower beds here and there. It is so quiet peacful on a weekdays and feels far from the city. We rented a surrey to peddal around the 172-acre island.

Today I had fun working on the flowers I photographed there in Corel Painter 2018.

Bayard Cutting Arboretum

My husband, Marc, and I went to Bayard Cutting Arboretum on Long Island, with two friends yesterday. It was a glorious day for a leisurely stroll and the grounds look lovely at this time of year. In the early evening, we stopped for a fabulous meal at the Jolly Fisherman’s Restaurant in Roslyn on the way back to New York City. It was a lovely day all round, thanks to our friends.

Central Park Spring Flowers

Photographed using a Nikon D750 with a Sigma 150-600 mm lens in Central Park Tuesday April 11. I find that my big lens can work a lot like a macro.

Macy’s Flower Show

Every year Macy’s at Herald Square has a spring flower show. I usually go. Some years are better than others. This year’s is a riot of color for the carnival theme. The poor fish must feel overwhelmed. I look a little better in the skinny mirror.
