Photo date with Ed.

Today Ed and I met up in Central Park so he could teach me a few things with my camera. I still have a lot to learn, but it was a really productive 2-3 hours.
Thanks Ed!

We shot at the reservoir.

My favorite of the day.

Ed's in a photography class which is teaching film. He bought this sweet camera from the 1930s. I told him it felt like a brick, and apparently that's the nickname for this model.

Under a bridge.

I wasn't exactly prepared for all the slush.

We didn't have much time with sunlight, but it still made for some cool shots.

Parts of the reservoir were frozen over.

Once it got too dark (and too cold) we headed to one of my other favorite places in the city; Grand Central Station. It was hard to get good pictures with the difficult lighting, but we had a lot of fun. We played around with really slow shutter speed. Can you see three Eds?

This one of Ed cracked me up, mostly watching him try to hold that second pose for about 15 seconds. I just stood at the camera laughing. Thanks for being such a good sport Ed. (For the record, this was all his idea.)

Handsome model.

If you haven't been to the main concourse in Grand Central you must go! It's beautiful.

I really want to come during rush hour. This place is a madhouse.

We finished it up with dessert. Apparently we both love red velvet from Magnolia's.

Thanks again Ed!!

What a fun day! I love the picture of under the bridge.

I'd really like to take a photog class but it's hard to squeeze in the time. On our 23 hour trip to South Dakota/Yellowstone last year I read SLR for dummies and got a pretty good idea, but it's all about practice. You've got some great shots!!
