Archive for December, 2009
One of the gifts I received for Christmas was a tripod. (Thanks Patricia!) All of the photos in this post were taken using a tripod and a wireless remote. I bought a wireless remote from B&H to prevent shutter release vibrations from my heavy ungraceful finger. It’s been great taking photos on demand. Having a tripod is opening up some creative juices and I look forward to using it more in the future. I also like shooting night shots with a low ISO. No graininess. Enjoy the night time, low light goodness!
Regina and I spent Christmas at both of our family’s houses, Christmas eve at the Pei’s and Christmas day at the Chan’s. We’re blessed to live within driving distance of both of our parent’s homes. It was good to see family and spend time with everyone. Enjoy the photos!
First blizzard of the winter season came upon NYC December 19th, 2009. Just about a foot of snow fell through the night (25 inches in Long Island). Regina and I ventured around Sunnyside mid snow storm. After walking for a bit we decided to go home sooner than we thought because of the “heavy” winds. The beat went on the following day. Enjoy the photos!
A few friends and I visited some places in NYC that had significant meaning to them. Our first stop was Fort Tryon Park, located in Washington Heights of Manhattan, war site of the Revolutionary War. The park had was special to my friend because this is where is made a commitment to serve the needs of the city. We ended up touring Columbia and Elmhurst as well, but I didn’t take many photos. The last photo is comprised of a different set of friends who I had the pleasure of eating dinner at Xi’an Famous Foods (I highly recommend the lamb noodles). Enjoy!
