weekend recap

2012-shotbyjake-com-2405

Despite the rainy forecast, the weather was actually quite lovely over the weekend (never mind that the rain has resumed again today). As a result, I probably put about 50 or 60 miles on the bicycle odometer. I think that my favorite ride of the weekend was Saturday evening, when I rode uptown on the Hudson greenway, almost to the northern edge of the island. I brought my camera with me to snap a few sunset shots from Riverside Park. They came out pretty cool. But, my favorite shot from the evening was the one above. I snapped it near the 70th St. pier on my way back downtown. Isn’t it cute the way that birds stand on one leg (even little songbirds). That shot was with a 50mm, btw. The bird let me get right up near it. I think that the birds here become very accustomed to people being in their space and tend to drop their guard a bit as a result.

Anyway, it was nice to have a mellow weekend before the very busy week that I have lined up, starting today. I’m going to be shooting some stuff this week that I’m kind of excited about, including some tattoo work. Happy Monday.
