The Weekly Photo Challenge for the last week of the year is to choose a favorite photo from the year. One single favorite photo wasn’t happening. I thought maybe the top 5 would work. But then I figured my favorite 17 of 2017 would be fun. Some of these are favorites because the quality, some because the subject, some just because. I’ll caption each one, because I just know you are waiting with baited breath to find out why I picked each pic! In no particular order: Continue reading “17 of 2017: WPC”
In case you were wondering, this is Shakespeare’s Garden in Central Park, NYC. Not, say, the garden at Shakespeare’s birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon. (Although I have been there. See?:
Now that was actually Shakespeare’s Garden.)
In any case, this Shakespeare’s Garden is tucked away in Central Park, nearish the W81th street entrance. It’s beautiful! Continue reading “Shakespeare’s Garden”
I’ve recently handed in two term papers and, as if on cue, the skies darkened and the temperature dropped into the low 60s. So on top of the let down at the end of a hard year, I’ve got a sinus headache that won’t quit. Not that writing the papers, finishing the papers, or having this headache have stopped me from baking, they’ve just stopped me from blogging about it. So stay tuned for some brilliant baked goods (plus at least one crafty project). But in the meantime, here’s my entry for the latest weekly photo challenge: Evanescent.

Cee’s Black and White Photography Challenge has been alphabet themed recently. At some point I’ll have to catch up–but here I am, starting at I and J.
I is for icing.
J is for Johnny jump ups.
Resilient. It could mean so many things. As a New Yorker, I thought about photographing the new building where the World Trade Center had stood–talk about resilience. But I was doing that because it fit the challenge, not because it inspired me.
So I took my camera, with my new 40mm prime lens attached, for a walk. It was a beautiful day. I thought I’d see something.
I took pictures of bulbs sprouting from under dead leaves. I found some pansies that were somehow hanging in there after a recent cold snap. Continue reading “Resilient: WPC”
Last Mother’s Day, I did some work at my local florist. Lovely place, lovely people, lovely flowers. And the owner let me futz around with my camera for a couple hours of one of my shifts if I took shots for her website/social media pages.
Remember a couple of months ago, in honor of World Photo Day, I promised photos from various photo shoots? And I delivered on the two that tied for the audience’s vote: Letchworth State Park and Lamberton Conservatory… But then I didn’t post the others. Sorry. Here’s the first of the remaining batches.
