A Happy Zaide

My father-in-law decided he wants to be called Zaide (pronounced ZAY-TAH) to his grandchildren.  Zaide is Yiddish for grandfather.  You see, his parents were Holocaust survivors and so growing up he learned Yiddish.  It's in his blood, and Melissa and I are happy to know that Layla will grow up learning about an important family history.

NYC From Above The Train Cars

The High Line is a special place to many New Yorkers.  It’s now also a tourist trap for outsiders. I've done many photowalks on The High Line, so it gets quite old, fast.

However, this past October I was on a photowalk following a day at PhotoPlus Expo, and it was my first time on this part of The High Line.

Walking in the cold

Her first month on this Earth has been a very cold one. We are taking her for walks whenever we can. When we do, she's super bundled up.

Cool overview of how Derrick uses social media.
 
A Photographer's Guide to Social Networks - Participating on social networks isn't for everyone. But for those who want more interaction around the images they create, choosing an online site or two can lead to rewarding experiences. Here's a quick guide to my favorites - http://thedigitalstory.com/2015/02/a-photographers-guide-to-social-networks.html

When faced with challenges

The WE35 project for February called for photographing not only with the same lens, but also with the same ISO as if it was film.  I tried my best to do that, but being limited to what I can photograph and where I could go, I had to cheat here and there.

This photo was outdoors and the snow on the ground was reflecting so much light that I had no choice but to play with exposure much more than I would normally.

As it turns out, the result is super fun with high contrast from shadows to highlights.

Her first moments

The moment she started crying was the moment Melissa and I really realized we were parents to this little beautiful girl.

Affordable and top quality! Rich came to our house and explained the products and service efficiently, and clearly. He made it easy for anyone to understand. The install was fairly quick, maybe 3 hours total with one person. We have a small house so we didn't need much. But we paid for some add-ons which work great as well. I set off the alarm accidentally at first, and the call center was on top of it. So far so good, and we couldn't be happier with GPS!
