A photoblog about gardening in the confines of Brooklyn, NY


Photography Best Of 2012

First off, I haven’t updated this blog in a really really long time.  Who knew being a blogger was such hard work?  Luckily I have been putting time into getting out and taking photos.  I obviously am drawn towards wildlife photography, which in this part of the world lies heavily on bird photography.  I feel like I’ve come a long way, and yet, while reviewing my work for the year, am pleasantly surprised how many shots I am proud of from early in the year, when I was just getting my feet wet.  The super-telephoto has quickly become my lens of choice.  Considered a beginner’s lens, the Sigma 120-400 mm OS has served me pretty well.  It has its limitations, but you learn to work for your shots, and that’s part of the satisfaction in getting the good ones.  I’m still amazed that so many wonderful wildlife opportunities present themselves in urban Brooklyn, NY.  I want to thank my girlfriend Caroline for her support, as well as the community on Flickr for always inspiring me to try to improve.

With that said, below find some of my favorite photos from 2012.  I hope you enjoy them and I hope 2013 brings even better results!


The East End is fun, even without power!

So what?  Irene knocked out the electricity at the summer retreat.  We STILL had fun.
