May - Allison S. Harney

151b | 31 May

I know I already picked one but this just too awesome not to post!!  I love this. I've always wanted to capture lightning and this is my first success.  Can't wait to try it again!

Happy Sunday, you guys!

Another busy summer night in the city.

Today I went downtown to try to capture some awesome images of Manhattanhenge - when the sun aligns with the grid of Manhattan at sunset.  But, it was too cloudy so no sun.  I did, however, capture this.  Which made the whole trip worth it.

I used my old but newly modified 50 mm lens to do some freelensing. I love it. I need more of this in my life.

147 | 27 May

Walking in the rain.

I know this is the 3rd time I took a picture of these plants. What can I say, it makes a good subject and the light here is always interesting.

This is Peep-peep.  David found him on the ground while he was watering the plants. He's a big baby bird that can't fly yet and must have fallen out of his nest. We put him up in a tree hoping his Mama will still be able to feed him until he's big enough to fly on his own.

This guy clearly misses his buddy.

One of the things that I've really come to appreciate from living in a city is the graffiti and street art. In my neighborhood that changes frequently.  Love the hearts this artist used.

Bridges to Manhattan at night.

138 | 18 May

This again, I know. But, I wanted to try it at night with the city lights coming in through the window and the high grain. It's different and I like it.

137 | 17 May

Back home after several days away.  It's always nice to be home.

136 | 16 May

I badly want to take pictures of the moon. Maybe I'll rent a lens to give it a try. But, I do love clouds at night too.

Spherical nucleic acids. Today I went to work with David for a bit and he has this model of a nanoparticle on his desk.  This has been such a big part of his life, it's worth documenting.

One of the nice surprises from being back in Kitchener this weekend is that I got to extend the time of trees blooming.  As I left New York the flowers had pretty much all fallen off of the trees.  Here, the trees just started blooming in time for Mother's Day.

It feels like summer this weekend so that means Evelyn is back in a hammock and we all have dirty feet.

128 | 8 May

I'm at my parents place this weekend visiting family for Mother's Day.  Although I've spent a lot of time in this house this weekend I'm seeing it in a new way. 

127 | 7 May

Days like today pass in a blur. Back on another airplane.

126 | 6 May

I was at a conference for a week and my little rose didn't get watered :(  But, she's a tough cookie and is coming back!!

125 | 5 May

124 | 4 May

Today I was walking to a meeting and the flower petals were blowing off of the fruit trees. I wanted to come back to capture it later, but when I came back at the end of the day there were no blowing petals. I don't know if it was the time of day or what. But, the trees are still beautiful.

123 | 3 May

I got a request for more images from work.  Seems to make sense since I spend so much time there. But, I've tried and I just can't seem to get it right. The good news is that I'm there often so I have lots of opportunities to try again.

122 | 2 May

Today I went down to the Whitney Museum block party to see A Tribe Called Red. I was really excited to see them and they did not disappoint. They had awesome energy and their round dance was such a positive way to end the night.

Views from the High Line. In a city as big as New York where you pass so many anonymous strangers, this is a great reminder.
