Sydney Botanical Gardens

In December of 2003 I took a business trip to Sydney, Australia for a couple of weeks. What a city! I think I could live there quite happily. Naturally, I brought along the 5 MP Dimage A-1 that I was still shooting jpegs with. Click any picture to see them all bigger.

Athena in Gotham

We went for a tramp in Central Park’s Ramble last weekend (he got away – badum-tsss).

There’s a lot of hullabaloo about the barred owls that have appeared in Central Park lately. It’s apparently pretty rare for the city to host an owl and with two people are going crazy with the need to personally see and photograph them. I managed to snap a couple shots of each that are not terribly well done (using a long lens, nearby, out-of-focus foliage obscures the birds somewhat and they refuse to look in the portraitist’s direction.

A Death

Cherry Hill, New Jersey

Sadly, on our walk we came upon this dead deer lying on the side of the road. As a city boy, I’m not really sure what I could have done about it. Since it was pulled off the road, I assumed someone had moved it and called it in but to whom? And when? It was still there an hour late on the return from our walk.
