Wide Angle Woes

I’ve been using my telephoto zoom lens a lot lately. That and my macro lens are kind of my comfort zone. Which reminds me that I should try the extender on the telephoto… It might enable me to get some

Photo Monday – Downtown

I don’t know the name of this neighborhood. We were there last week after we got off the ferry. There’s this one cobblestoned street with older buildings dwarfed by skyscrapers. Coming from Québec, I’m used to older cities like Montreal

Photo Monday – Ferry Ride

A while ago, I volunteered to chaperone V’s second grade class to Bay Ridge pier. They’re doing a New York City study this year and that pier has good views of Staten Island and Manhattan. The kids talked about the

Photo Monday – Barcelona Part 2

I realize I said I would have all my Gaudi and Gaudi-esque pictures today but I didn’t realize just how many of them there were. So it’s only Gaudi today (only!) and even then, I could not get below 30

Photo Monday – Barcelona Part 1

Photographing our family trips is sooo challenging. On one hand, I want to document our vacation. On the other hand, I want interesting images, not crappy versions of the ones you see in guide books. I mean, who else remembers
