Around the Neighborhood – All Saints’ Episcopal Church, Briarcliff Manor, NY Revisited

I posted a picture of this lovely old church back in December 2020 (See: Around the Neighborhood – All Saints’ Episcopal Church, Briarcliff Manor, which also contains more information about the church itself).

I think I prefer this picture though.

Around the Neighborhood – A Fisherman

This pond is on the site of the former Briarcliff Lodge. Local legend has it that this pond was once the pool to the lodge. Be that as it may I was not aware the it had fish in it. But the angler reassured me that it does, specifically he mentioned bass. I think he said largemouth bass, but I’m not sure that my memory is correct.

Around the Neighborhood – Red hydrants

A little while ago I was watching a Youtube video by a well known landscape photographer. He suggested that a good photograph should pose questions to the viewer.

This one certainly made me ask a few questions, the most important being why are these two (yes there are two of them, one is far off in the distance) brightly colored fire hydrants out in the middle of a field with no proximity to any buildings?

Around the Neighborhood – Another ‘Deer in the Meadow’ picture.

I was sitting on the balcony fiddling with a new (to me) lens (a Tamron 200-500mm f/5-6.3 SP AF Di LD (IF)) when I noticed that my frequent visitors, the deer had returned. Since I was already holding the camera/lens I couldn’t resist giving it a try.

They were quite far away and it was already getting dark so I had to up the ISO with a resultant increase in notice. But all in all I was satisfied.

More on the lens when I’ve used it more and know it better.
