The southeast corner of Tompkins Square Park gets a lot of sun. The bed of daffodils there is sprouting, they were the first I’ve seen this year. Full post on tompkinstrees.org
This London Planetree on East 10th Street near Avenue B has looked in bad shape for years, with that long wound along its trunk. It is no surprise that the arborists decided to take it down. But still it is sad to see it go. Full post on tompkinstrees.org
I’m still not getting the results I want from this latest version of my steadycam. Once again I went to capture Tompkins Square Park in the snow. And once again it was fairly breezy, swinging the balance arm of the steadycam like a pendulum. That along with the slippery footing, and having my left hand holding an umbrella and unable to aid stability, produced less than optimal results. In the video above I let YouTube stabilize the footage. But I don’t think it helped the look of the video much as the process also much degrades the image quality. But this is good enough for blogging, and I got some nice shots of the frozen, nearly empty park.
A walk into the almost blizzard.
At first I was just curious as to what was going on, then I get annoyed that my park was being turned into a closed set.
