Edgewood Park

I didn’t take any pictures during the last snow storm here in New Haven and I was determined to do so the next time we get snow.  We ended up getting a few inches of the white stuff today.  Armed with my warm snowboarding pants (I don’t snowboard, I just happen to have these pants that my mom bought from the North Face outlet for like 30 bucks), a sweater, a softshell, and a down jacket, I ventured out into the snow.  I, of course, also brought a stripped down 5D and a 17-40L with me.

There weren’t a lot of people out.  I saw two other people and their dogs in the park.  In fact, the first time I saw the second dog, I thought it was a coyote.  I don’t even know if there are coyotes in the area.  It was just the first thing I thought.  The owner was much farther away, and wearing a green coat.  Probably a girl.

I’m not much of a taking pictures in the park kind of guy, but there was a lone tree that stood out.

A couple times I ended up walking right into a frozen pond, either permanent or recently created through the snow melt from the last storm.  Unfortunately, I didn’t sink in much, because that would’ve been a much better story.  The creeks (or are they called rivers?) weren’t too much trouble, though I had considered wading in to get more interesting images.  Alas, I decided against it.

And no, I didn’t take any pictures of the bridges, but here’s a view from one of them.

Oh, and a bit of advice that I did heed, if you go out taking pictures in the cold, place your camera into bag (preferably airtight) before entering you warm and humid home, lest moisture will condense on the insides of your gear.

Yep, that’s all, folks!

Cutest Baby in Calgary

love :: rob and myun-hwa

I got a call this afternoon from Rob asking me what I was doing.  In all honesty, I was getting ready to play some XBOX 360 with my friend Jim, but curiousity got the best of me and I asked him what he had in mind.  Well, he called because he and Myun-Hwa were hoping that I could take some photos of them for their Save the Date card.  That’s right, they’re getting married.  Woo Hoo!!! They’re both simply awesome.  I’ve known the two of them for several years now and they’re each wonderful in their own regard.  I am absolutely excited that they’re getting married. 

Anyways, I managed to squeeze in some XBOX time with Jim and time to photograph what was needed for Rob and Myun-Hwa’s Save the Date card (which is not shown). Rob and Myun-Hwa spent their first date flying a kite, hence the content of the pictures. It was cold. It was windy. The kite also took a while to set up; it was a tangled mess but Rob saved the day!  We ended up with 20 minutes of light. Here are just a few from this afternoon.  The processing is a bit different – going for the nostalgic feel, I suppose.  Let me know if it’s working.  :-p

love :: james and mina

I had a blast today with James and Mina around the Yale campus.  They saw my work and wanted photos for themselves and for their parents.  They felt that Yale really helps define them as a couple, so off to Yale we went.  I don’t think I did Yale any justice in these pictures…sigh, but I hope they were at least good pictures of the two of them.  During our shoot, I mentioned that it’d be great if I coud get them onto the roof of a building.  As it turns out, they have access where they live. You’ll see those towards the end. Here are some of the pictures from the preliminary edit. Let me know what you think!

portrait :: audrey

Audrey’s mom wanted some pictures for their Christmas cards this year.  The twist was that they wanted pictures of Audrey with her horse William and her dog Berty.  They’re both sweet animals.  This was also the first time I was so close to a horse.  We didn’t get any frames with all three of them in the picture, but we got some good ones nonetheless.  Here they are just a few:
