Needling felting round forms.

goodbye winter blues

Combining two color schemes of my favorite yarn - a shawl that is also nice blanket for snuggling up on the couch. 

building 92, brooklyn navy yard

Interior/exterior final architectural photography assignment - I really like this building/museum, so it was the perfect subject for this photo shoot.

interior photography: lighting workshop

Lighting Workshop recently completed their new office an I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph their exciting new space. As as an assignment for Michael Moran's architectural photography class this semester, we were asked to use a 17 or 24mm tilt-shift lens. Using the 17mm lens I was able to capture wide-angle shots and adjust for distortion with the shift-tilt function on the lens.

brooklyn bridge park

Moments in the park while I was out photographing the Brooklyn Bridge Ice Cream Factory. My favorite time to visit the park for the view is at dusk when the setting sun reflects off of manhattan skyline. This time however, I visited during the day and just as the sun was setting, when all the tourists flocked to the edge to see the mercury like water of the East river meet the lit skyline of Lower Manhattan.

making warmth: crochet blanket

With the arrival of my first niece, Adeline, I decided to try my hand at making my first blanket. I was taught how to knit and crochet by my mother when I was in grade school, but I never made anything this large.  The blanket is a 4 foot square. Based on my calculations (average time to crochet one row times the amount of rows), this blanket took approximately 45 hours to crochet. 

the last of the snow: country time

Traveled to Aron's home for the yearly passover family gathering. We brought along a 24mm tilt-shift lens and I took some exterior shots of the property with this year's last bit of serious snow still on the ground.
