NYC Subway Impressions

This Sunday I went to New York to visit some friends. For the first time I tried to just capture what I see in not a “Portrait” way that I usually do. It’s totally different and trains your eyes a lot. I was surprised on how difficult it actually is to just capture a passing moment and atmosphere. Sometimes people gave some me angry looks  (more on that in another post) and it’s hard to go out of your shell and just do it. But it was a great experience for me and I’m definitely going to do it again.

Once I went to the city and somebody asked me to take my picture I was shoked first but than let the person willingly shoot some frames. I have no Idea where they ended up and it’s probably going to stay in mystery forever but I was so impressed by the courage of that person to just randomly approach strangers and ask for something as personal as a picture. I must admit it’s at least once a month in my mind.

I really like the challenge it gives you and whenever I’m going to the city again I’m going to bring my Canon 5d with me. By the way this was the first time I used my new 50mm 1.8. lens. I love it! It’s lightweight and small. I took the Battery grip of so that it fits in my handbag. Must say I love my camera when it’s so handy dandy and tiny. Gives you a total different feeling 🙂

Spring is here!

It’s so nice outside recently so I had the urge to get some pics of the flowers that are blooming now everywhere. So yesterday afternoon i was crawling around on my neighbours frontyard. Oh boy that must have looked so silly. I politely waved to every passing car so they don’t think I’m a weird creeper. 🙂

I even had the luck to catch a bee in some of the photographs. Love crocuses. One of my favorite spring flowers. They come in so many shades and colors. Feel free to use the big horizontal Image as a Background Picture for your Laptop or Computer Monitor. It’s currently mine 😉

Here are the results!
