It's key lime pie time of year!! Every year for my husband's birthday I make him key lime pie. This year I decided to try to capture some details of the juiced lime. I want to capture more of these details in everyday life.

Sunrise can be just as beautiful in Harlem as anywhere else.

In the city that never sleeps it was eerily quiet last night. Snowmageddon didn't quite happen, but even still this morning there were no cars and very few people on the roads.

Using flash has been so great to learn! I have such great flexibility in creating more lighting options, including stopping motion.

NYC parks is planting trees in my neighborhood. This is great news since my neighborhood doesn't have any. New trees will nicely complement the steel and concrete of the elevated subway tracks, highways and overpasses.

Lots of people heading home from work, just like me.

It's the last week of my flash class over on Clickin' Moms and this week we're balancing the ambient light with flash. I like being able to see what the city looks like out the window.

Watching traffic go by is so much prettier this way.

Nature vs. the city. A fleeting moment of sunshine on a cloudy day. I only got one frame before the sun went back behind the clouds and there were no more shadows cast, but I'm happy that I did. And grateful for every joyful moment, no matter how fleeting.

On a cold and rainy day it looks like I'll be staying indoors.

These are actually the stars seen above NYC. I love the idea of being able to reveal that sky above the city that is so hidden by the light of the city. Although I have much to learn about astrophotography, this is a start on that journey.

Am I seriously posting a picture of a salad container??? Yes, I am. This year is a year of growth and this salad container is lit using my new flash. It's not exactly the most exciting image ever, but it does show where I am and where I am heading.

With the start of a new year come new projects!! In 2015 I've decided to undertake a daily shooting project - one selected picture a day for 365 days. Fortunately, I have the support of my wonderful husband. I'm looking forward to a year of challenge, growth and adventure :)
