When Frank posts his challenge for the week, I don’t usually respond until the weekend. Most of the week, I am busy with work, commuting in the dark to a location filled with ugly office buildings. Photography is only possible on weeknights. The last few weekends, and during the week as well, the weather has…

Guess what? 1/1000s is also a good shutter speed for photos of backyard birds in the snow.??But I have no clue what sort of bird this is. Do you?

I took this yesterday while strolling across the Brooklyn Bridge. It was the golden hour and people were everywhere walking and using the magic of the light to take selfies and group photos on the bridge. It was too crowded for the tripod. I was worried that someone would trip over the legs. I switched…
