Sunset in Aruba

I took this picture while on vacation in Aruba – thought the silhouette of the guy here made it…..the beautiful glow of the sun didn’t hurt either.  The one thing I wasn’t so set on was the positioning of everything (the sun, the boat, and the guy).  Also – a sailboat would have been much nicer.  Let me know what you think.

Bronx Botanical Gardens

UPDATED: Now includes purchase links at end of article.

I went to the orchid show at the Bronx Botanical Gardens. There were some unbelievably beautiful flowers there. Here is one of them.

The lighting on this shot was perfect. It was like someone was shining a spotlight in a smoky cabaret or something. Very odd for a flower exhibit.

Available for purchase in a variety of formats include large canvas, postcards, etc. here.  You can also check out all the other pics from that day at my Photo Store

Presenting

presentingThis shot was taken in (on?) Staten Island with a Nikon D90 and 18-200mm at 50mm, ISO200 f/4.8 and 1/125.

I was walking thru this graveyard of a ton of decay –  including boats, old engines, etc. and I came across this log. It was amazing to see all this decay and then this log – presenting us with some life.
