Lemonade Stand, Miami!

Three cousins in town together, one from New York, one from Miami, one from LA, Aunt Laurie thought of something fun to do!Mmmmmm chocolate chip cookies!
Only the best from Aunt Laurie, deluxe lemonade jar! Who can resist!

The princesses guard the money...
I think someone sampled some cookies!

But at least he is hard at work in the 90 degree heat trying to get customers driving by.
The rewards are not all monetary, but it sure was fun dividing up the money!

The Boat House

I shot a wedding with Celeste Joye last week. She's a very creative artistic photographer. I love shooting weddings in NYC. Even in the rain, the day was beautiful, the light was stunning and the couple was wonderful.

Calle 13

Sometimes I get to shoot events at Macy's. This one was for Kent Miller Studios for Adidas @ Macy's Herald Square.

Calle 13 is a Grammy winning latin multi- style hip hop group consisting of two half brother's. The name of the group is the address one of them lived on, 13th Street and their names are Residente and Visitante. One of them lived in a gated community, visitors were routinely asked "¿Residente o visitante?" ("Resident or visitor?") when approaching the security gate. They both went on to college, one studied to be an accountant and the other computer science. They started working in music and went on to become 5 time Latin Grammy and Grammy Award winners.

Representing Adidas as a promotion for Puerto Rican Day Parade in NYC....

E 58 street

Shot from the car on the way to the 59st bridge. I always think this
is such an interesting looking building.

Montauk, Ditch Plains

May 26, 2009
An afternoon out at Ditch, lunch at Ditch Witch (yuuum!).
Quicksilver bus making the rounds with a few pros on board and in the water.
No surf for me this time, always good to make a little movie when I'm high and dry.

The Windy Pixel, Tony Shi shoots NYC

I haven't been blogging much lately. Today I'm cheating and I'm going to link to another blog I discovered.
Some photographers in Chicago (based at my old freshman year school, the very academic, University of Chicago) called The Windy Pixel. They specialize in HDR, high dynamic range photography. Which basically means the photos have all the details in the dark areas and the light areas, beyond the scope of one exposure. The photos are multiple exposures that layered together. Better more detailed explanation in tutorial.

Chicago is great, check out their blog for amazing photos, but I was particular moved of photos closer to home.
They have a guest blogger from New York, here is New York as I haven't quite seen it before.

NYC Aquarium-PS 34 trip

The good thing about being is freelance mom, is that I get to be involved in school functions, and go on field trips. I usually try to bring my camera and get some good pictures, which isn't easy while chaperoning 2 small children, one whom I don't know so well.

This time, I got three, and I have to say I pretty much gave up taking photos except while we were all waiting in line to get in to the aquarium. Having 3 squiggly wigglys and only 2 hands, does not leave a hand or 2 for a camera. The kids were excited tho. We could smell and feel the ocean breeze which was just past the boardwalk behind us.

It's always fun seeing all the sea animals, but this trip was crowded, cold, rainy and it sure is dark inside the buildings wandering the hallways looking at the tanks. Hard to keep track of hundred's of school kids trying to see as much as possible.

Next time I think we'll play hooky and go in the afternoon when all the school kids are back in their classrooms.



Time to feed the penguins!


If you want to see the sea animals, check out this slide show from our YMCA camp trip this summer
