New Hobby

I’ve taken to photography as a hobby now, and love snapping pictures. It was an easy thing to get into, mostly because of smart phones all being equipped with cameras. I don’t by any means think I’m great at it, but I enjoy trying to capture what I see at just the right angle, or just the right lighting.

My two favorite subjects for pictures are sunsets…

…and New York City.

I take all my photos on my iPhone right now, so I’m clearly not planning on going professional, but it’s fun to play around with the focus and I’ve got some pictures I’m really proud of. I took this one in Central Park this winter.

This one is of my in-law’s chandelier.

This one of the daffodils is the only one here not taken on my iPhone. I borrowed my Dad’s camera.

And last of all, here is one I took of my Buppy ❤ doesn’t he have a lovely profile? *sigh*
