Saying Goodbye to Winter!

I have officially said “see ya later” to winter!  It was a horrible winter in New York.  Well a HORRIBLE February at least.  And I am grateful it appears to be over.  I will admit, however, that the cold and snow does make for some nice photos.  So here are a few iphoneography photos I took during the colder days.  Enjoy!

rather then smoke, i go on walkabouts.

yes yes i am in the midst of quitting smoking, again.  i am about 1.5 months in and it feels great.  since smoking became such a routine excuse for me to go outside many times throughout the day, i had to find something else to bring me outdoors.  walkabouts.  walkabouts now replace my cigarette “breaks.” sometimes my camera is attached to me on these mini excursions.  on those days, i challenge myself to find something new to photograph around the neighborhood of my office.

below are photos from todays two walkabouts.  random photos of things i walked by. enjoy.  and remember, you can find a picture in anything your eyes can see.

just snap it!

must.shoot.photos.now.

that is the feeling i got today. an overwhelming feeling.  must. shoot. photos. now. so i went with it.  it wasnt the most photographic day, but at least i got to hear the shutter working on my camera.  i am a little more fueled now.  i love taking pictures.  because i am often looking for a moment/space/person/place/thing to  stop time with, i notice much more of the world around me.  my eyes are constantly looking, and i become very aware of my surroundings.  it is a beautiful thing.

enjoy.
