So I did not do a very good job of balancing my life this week. My big camera came out of the bag a few times, but I did not end up with any shots that really brought together the concepts of balance–with people, objects, or space–that we have been studying this month. Coincidentally, I was pulling the last few months of photos from my iPhone and came across this little gem from a mid-September beach day that combined all three elements.

Sometimes the most interesting light happens when we don’t have our “big” cameras with us. Thank goodness for the iPhone. The image quality in low or artificial light may not be the best, but it has allowed me to capture many plays on light that otherwise would exist only in my memory (see here for another example).
Loren had a school skating party this week at Lasker Rink, at the north end of Central Park. As we walked toward the rink from 110th St. at dusk, the still waters of Harlem Meer reflected the lights of the surrounding buildings.
On the way out of the park after skating, Loren was walking on the benches and I noticed that the lamplight illuminated her nearly as well as a studio light.
Next up in our Project 52 blog circle is my dear friend Linda Hooper.
My plans for a photo blog have been percolating for several months, and I will be playing catch-up intermittently with photos from the last several months that have been sitting unshared on my hard drive or iPhone.
In late June, we attended a weeknight event at Victorian Gardens in Central Park. It was a typical early-summer evening in New York with thunderstorms passing through town during the evening rush hour. We walked from mid-town to Central Park through intermittent showers, but in the end the clouds parted and the girls splashed through giant puddles that dramatically reflected the lights of the amusement park rides.
