Sheboygan Breakwater Lighthouse, Sheboygan, WI
Most of the snow has melted, though I am still waiting for signs of spring’s arrival.
Brooklyn Bridge, NY
Catching a spectacular sunrise is definitely worth waking up extra early.
Shedding The Winter Blues
With temperatures still in the 30s and 40s, I have not seen any flower bloom in my area. The only sign of spring is patches of grass turning just ever so slightly green. So for the Flower Theme of this week’s black & white photo project, I had no choice but to go buy some.
Typical of me, I shot the flower from the back. I just thought it was more interesting than the front shot.

Across The Bridge
Brooklyn Bridge, New York
Despite bringing my tripod to New York, I left it untouched for the first two days of the trip. It was a combination of forgetting and reluctance to lug it around, considering all the walking that we would be doing. Finally, in our third and last day, I made the decision to catch the sunrise by the Brooklyn Bridge. It of course meant waking up at 5 something in the morning (during vacation), but I knew I would regret it if I didn’t go.
And it certainly did not disappoint. I was able to take some pretty fascinating photographs. The fact that it was not crowded also helped me to frame the shots. The trickiest part though is managing the shakes and vibrations on the bridge.
This is one of the first shots I took. Many more to come.
May I Have Your Attention?
Times Square, New York
We spent this past weekend in New York. One of the main purposes of the trip was to squeeze in as many meals as (humanly) possible, to which I think we were fairly successful :)
We stayed in Nolita, which was incredibly convenient from shops and restaurants. One fun nearby place we checked out was Rice To Riches, which strictly sells rice pudding in a variety of flavors.
We also made it up to Times Square to check out the M & M store. It is hard to believe just how crowded it was (driving must be a nightmare). It was also fun watching the billboards, though I can hardly remember any other than the ones in my pictures, given how they all seem to try to grab your attention.
Needless to say, I took a whole bunch of photographs in this trip, which I am in the middle of processing. My ultra wide angle lens stayed on my camera most of the time, as I tried to capture as much of the city as possible.
The Universe Around Us
One nice thing about living in a sparsely populated area is being to see a sky full of stars.
