Pumpkin Pup

Pumpkin Pup, originally uploaded by Nadia McIlhany.

I was dying to photograph some fall colors so on Sunday, I went out with a friend and her 2 boys for some apple orchard fun. The apples were almost done but there was fun to be had in the pumpkin patch. This little guy thought so. He was so excited to have people come and pay attention to him. I barely got a shot of him - he just wouldn't stay still.

City Stuff

While in NYC for work, I've had the chance to get some shooting done. This was the shot of my hotel, the Embassy Suites WTC, and the Irish Hunger Memorial, last night.

I took a walk before breakfast and starting work this morning. Although it wasn't raining during my walk, it had been raining earlier and the water droplets were on the overhang on the entrance to my hotel. I saw it and pulled at the camera for one last shot for the day.

I thought that it might also look good in B&W. Which do you like better?


I'm in NY for work and the Irish Hunger Memorial is across the street from my hotel. Here are some images that I captured yesterday morning and last night - before and after work. These were shot with my 50 mm f/1.8 lens - the "nifty fifty." I have one more day of my "Nifty Fifty" challenge and then I can change lenses. Hopefully I will have time for some more shooting while I'm here. This memorial is full of shooting possibilities so I will probably return.
