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.
If anyone knows the name of this wildflower (next 2 pictures b elow) please let me know. I tried to find it in my flower books.
I photographed this little Swamp Sparrow in Central Park on April 10, 2014 at the Azalea pond in the Ramble. I made up a story: He sees himself, looks several times then, not sure if it is another bird or himself, runs off.
I photographed these in my favorite place, Central Park, this September and October, 2015. I have been trying out the new Sigma 150-600 mm lens on my Nikon D750 — not bad at all. Then I processed them in Lightroom, Photoshop. And in some, using onOne, I added textures, shading and other tricks to create the mood I wanted. This is my creative outlet.
Doing these things to my photos means I will never be able to sell them as stock images. I hope someone will like one of my photographs well enough to want to buy one or two.
