The Pink Glove

When talking about the quality of lenses, we don't use the word "lens". It's too obvious. Instead we say stuff like, Hey, Joe's got some really good glass," or, "He needs to invest in some good glass," etc
from Scott Kelby's, "The Digital Photography Book, Volume 1"

Picture This
from the 1978 album "Parallel Lines" by Blondie

Day one of my new camera! And as I did in A Thousand Autumn Leaves, I took photos on my way to the gym.

Unfortunately the colorful autumn leaves have gone. I'd wanted to take a photo of them with my new Canon EOS 50D and compare with the photo of them from my point-and-shoot.

With all settings on automatic I decided to just try my luck and I managed to take five photos that I actually liked.

One was of the lost pink glove, on a wrought iron spike on a fence of a brownstone. You can see a larger version HERE.

Walking east and I couldn't resist a peek at these guys.


Unfortunately they turned out to be rather shallow, with the depth and personalities of cardboard.


I probably could have done something more with the balloons outside the Vinegar Factory. Still, I like the shot although it looks better in the larger size - HERE.

Dogs are people too. And in Manhattan they have day care, play groups, sleep-overs ... and spas.

Autumn is lingering. I like to view the skyscrapers ghost-like behind the last leaves.

I hope to begin to master my new camera. It's a daunting task that I shall take, one day at a time.
