March Photo Challenge: Floral Still Life

_MG_9755col

This is my submission to the current Rock the Shot Challenge. I love how the tip of the flower is surrounded by that pretty bokeh. Keeps the attention on the subject. Isn’t it sad how something so small and pretty is considered a weed?

As seen from the Central Park Lake. Missing the City a alot today.

The exams are finally over and I have some time to catch up on my pictures from last year. I know it’s overdue but It’s one of my New Years Resultions so I guess mid Ferbuary isn’t that bad 🙂

 

Vom See im Central Park aus gesehen. Vermisse die Stadt heute besonders.

Meine Klausuren sind endlich vorbei, sodass ich Zeit habe mich endlich mit meinen ganzen Bildern auseinander zu setzen. Ich weiß, dass es etwas spät is aber es ist einer meiner Vorsätze fürs neue Jahr und da ist Mitte Februar ja doch noch recht früh 🙂

Engagement Photoshoot – Ben&Fer

This cute couple gets married this Saturday and I was lucky enough to shoot an engagement session before theire big day.

She’s brasilian and he’s american. It’s an international longdistance Lovestory (those are the best kinds) at least in movies and books and apparently it works perfectly in real life too.

We went to the Sleeping Giant Park in Hamden, Connecticut, What a beautiful piece of earth. Amazing trials and the Locations and Lighting were just amazing!

This is just a sneak picture since I’m laying flat with tonsillitis since 4 days now, meh.

White Alligator

I went again to the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk yesterday to look at this very rare white alligator. I was very impressed by it’s beauty.

Of some 5 million or so American alligators thought to be alive, fewer than 100 are white, according to the St. Augustine Alligator Farm, which owns this “great white of the wetlands.”

The 8-foot American alligator is an albino animal. Albino animals (and people) lack the pigment, called melanin, that normally gives color to the skin, hair and eyes. Aside from being white with pink eyes, the alligator looks, swims and eats like a regular ’gator.

American Museum of Natural History, NYC – Part 1Dioramas

I went into the American Museum of Natural History last weekend more or less by accident. We were strolling around Central Park and actually wanted to leave to go back to Connecticut. On our way to the next Subway station we walked by the Museum and it was open for another 20 Minutes; which means there’s no admission fee. Of course we couldn’t pass that and walked in. We could always take the next train, right?
