In April my mother and I took a wonderful extended weekend in Brooklyn, her first ever time in New York City. While the weather was touch and go with rain and shine, we managed to do a fair amount of botanical, museum, and neighborhood wanderings. She was thoroughly impressed by the MET and the vastness of Manhattan, and less so by our experiences on the subway.
I saved my photography exercise for the last two days in the city, capturing images of the neighborhood odds and ends between book stores, bakeries, parks, and coffee shops. Below are a few images from those walks.
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens - Very flattering, affordable prime lens for portraits
JOBY GorillaPod - Great for stabilizing on the go
Wireless Remote - I've used this for self portraits!
Canon EOS Rebel T3i Digital SLR Camera Body (discontinued) - My camera is discontinued, but they've continued the Ti series. I love the articulating screen.
