Christ, Dora and the Red-Tailed Hawk chicks continue their life over Tompkins Square Park.
I set up my light weight tripod on Avenue B and pointed my camera at the nest. For the first hour nothing happened, but then the hawks woke up. The kids stretch their wings, projectile poop out the nest onto 9th Street and Dad (Christo) bring Mom (Dora) a rat dinner. It should only get more exciting in the nest over the next 3 weeks as they grow and strengthen their wings getting ready to fledge.
I’m experimenting with using Flickr’s slide show function for this post. Let me know how it works for you.
NYC’s March Against Monsanto.
The Dance Parade in the East Village. The Dance Parade is a wonderful event you see all sorts of people doing all sorts of things. I took one of my steady-cams, the one I designed for bike use, to the 2014 Dance Parade. I think it worked pretty well. I used no programmed stabilization, and for once YouTube didn’t suggest that I let it stabilize it for me.
After watching videos about the history of the 6th&B Garden I wandered over to Tompkins to see what I could capture of the park in the dark without a tripod. I rested my camera on the fences to get these shots.
