There’s an apartment building on the corner here which styles itself “the White House,” I’m not sure why. Every year I promise myself I’m not going to post pretty pictures of flowers – not my thing – and every year, as we emerge from the slough of Winter I demur, especially following this plague year. These were in the planter in front of the White House.
Some dirty snow, from the same January 2004 trip to Brooklyn mentioned in the last couple of posts. Notice how the Dimage A-1 lens resolved the snow in the background into lovely circles of confusion.
We browsed in a furniture shop in Brooklyn one day back in January, 2004. Here’s another pic from the Dimage A-1 shot as a straight jpeg before I learned about Raw.
Not too many good shots this past weekend, so it’s back to the archives of December 2003 we go: Australian summer, New York winter.
A few more flowers from the Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney, Australia that I missed on my last pass.

Another street, candid from the archives, shot as a 5MP jpeg in late 2003 on the Dimage A-1.
We’re still in the archive here, but at this point, Autumn, 2003, I’ve just decided digital has really arrived and I’ve bought the Minolta Dimage A-1, a “prosumer” all-in-one, 5 MP digital camera with a flip-up rear screen, built-in flash, 28-200mm (equivalent) lens – a camera I really loved. At this point, I haven’t yet learned about Raw and I’m still shooting jpegs straight out of the camera.
So frigid weather sends me back to the archive. Here’s a selection of 2MP jpegs shot early in my digital period with the family Kodak at the beach, with a little modern editing in Capture One. Click any image to see them all enlarged.
No, it’s salad dressing. More fun with the Fujinon 60mm macro lens.
Another over-processed jpeg from 2002.
