DUMBO Arts Festival

I recently participated in the Clickin Walk  through Clickin Moms, an amazing website all about improving your photography skills. We began at Grand Central Station and wound up at the DUMBO Arts Festival. I plan on sharing more of the photos from the walk, but wanted to post those from the festival first. So many unique people, and interesting things to see. It was impossible to capture it all!

 These girls were adorable while trying to get phone photos of each other.

 The colors of the dresses stood out and were a nice contrast to the grey cobblestones.
 Love the contrast of the cobblestone and the bright colored tape (which was some sort of game).
 I found the people in the back, although slightly blurred, to be interesting. Especially the beautiful girl with the bright red lipstick.
Her blue pants, orange headscarf and his diamond motiff scarf bring visual interest to the photo.

A Long Way From Tribeca

During a family trip to Cape May, New Jersey we decided to take a drive and go to the Wildwood boardwalk so the kids could have some fun. Unfortunately for them, since it was a couple days past Labor Day many of the buildings were already boarded up for the winter, as well as the rides. It was midday and the sun was especially harsh. The pictures are sort of depressing but beautiful at the same time with lots of colors and patterns.

School Days

I am excited to say that I was recently invited to participate in a photography blog circle by my friend Sarah. We are given a different topic each month and this month's topic was School Days. I had a hard time with this one since my son didn't start school until September 11. On our way to the first day of school I noticed that the city felt different, not only because everyone was back from their summer vacations but because it was the 12 year anniversary of September 11, 2001. The looks on faces was not quite the same, and there was a quietness, even though there were throngs of people on the streets. Here is what we encountered on our way to the first day of school.

Please continue around the circle to see what my new friend and photographer Katherine has done this month for School Days.
