Staten Island Ferry

Here are pictures from Kim and I's Staten Island Ferry sunset adventure a few weeks ago. I went absolutely snap happy with the changing light and gorgeous skyline. The ferry goes right up there with Brooklyn Bridge and Press Lounge for my favorite sunset city views.

A tip for the ladies: a short flowy dress is really not the best idea for the windy boat ride hah.

Cloud Mirror

Took my camera around during my lunch break, looked up, and was completely enraptured with the way the  sky reflected off this building.

After the Rain

I love the darker, overcast lighting and the way drops cling to everything after some summer rain.

What's Cookin?

My recent 'cooking' has been quite lazy. Fried egg on a salad. Fried eggs with bacon. Fried eggs on toast. I really like fried eggs. 

So this past weekend, when I got around to some real cooking, it felt so good. I did the whole sha-bang. Look up recipes. Make a grocery list. Get distracted and watch Youtube videos of corgis. Go grocery shopping. Try all the free samples. Go to three different supermarkets because the first two didn't carry the cut of lamb I needed. But I digress. Onto the dishes:

For something lighter on the side, I made this delicious quinoa, apricot, and arugula salad. I discovered Love & Lemons last week and can't wait to try out more of the site's beautiful, healthy dishes. And finally, I ended the weekend with this spring lamb stew that I had bookmarked awhile ago in my Rachel Khoo cookbook.

June Blooms

My new lens shoots some pretty nice macro, so I've been having a field day with the flowers in the yard. Hehehe prepare yourselves for many more terrible puns on this blog.

A quick test shot from a new lens I picked up: the Sigma 18-250mm. It ain't no telephoto lens, but compared to my current kit lens situation, the range/zoom on this is delightful.

Also, finally got around to downloading Lightroom. Feeling overwhelmed with all of its bells and whistles. HALP.

Sunset Sunday: Playa Santa Teresa

January 2014 - Santa Teresa, Costa Rica

Who doesn't love a good sunset? This sunset magic was just the beginning of some beautifully lazy days in this little surfer village.

Friday Fun

Yesterday, I had some fun after work adventures with Kim. We met up at Bryant Park, where they were doing a free bachata lesson. I havn't been Latin dancing since Costa Rica in January, forgot how much fun my complete lack of rhythm is!

Afterwards, we went downtown to cross 'Staten Island Ferry sunset ride' off our NYC to-do list. The setting sun on the downtown skyline made it a prime photo opportunity and fortunately I was dragging around my DSLR that day. Unfortunately, my technologically challenged self is seriously struggling migrating these pictures to my new laptop. For now, here's a quick phone snap.

Hello. I've been thinking about it for awhile, and I've finally gotten around to starting this little blog to post photos and other shenanigans. Hope you like it and aren't too tortured by my less than eloquent writing :)
