Rainy Days Are Here Again (Explore)

Attacked with some heavy weather, I realized that taking pictures in New York on a rainy day is a great thing as long as you manage to keep the camera dry (I did, for a while). At Madison Square Park/Broadway here.

roughly two years ago i started uploading to flickr. couldn’t have imagined how photography would take off as a passion for me. i also couldn’t have imagined that the awesome camera my parents had given me would get ripped off in the security line at an airport a month ago.

i was overwhelmed with the number of you who commented on the photo that told that story, as well as those of you who took the time to send me email individually, offering lots of kind words of support.

but never in my wildest dreams could i have imagined that i’d be shooting on this day with a nikon D2X body, attached to a lens of my dreams. both of which were astonishing gifts from a family in the flickr community. they have asked to remain anonymous to the public, so honoring their wishes, i will refer to them only as my "fairy camera godparents".

they initially emailed asking if they might send me a spare lens that had become obsolete for them, as a way to kick start my photography after the theft of my camera. deeply touched, and after much MUCH thought, i accepted their kind offer. nothing prepared me for what i found when i opened the overseas package from them…not only a brand new lens, but this stunning pro grade camera, filter, camera bag, battery, and charger. all told, about $7,000 USD worth of gear. as i told them (once i got myself back together enough to send an email), it’s a darn good thing i was sitting down when i opened the box.

i had not (and still haven’t) ever met these folks or spoken to them in person. they were strangers in all ways except the sharing of pieces of life through flickr’s photo streams. but they had been moved by my photography and the graciousness of their own hearts to send this tremendous gift to me, halfway around the world, to further this passion of mine and enable more stories from places near and far to appear on these pages.

it’s been a long two years. but what a sweet way to end the year and begin this part of the story…the first picture i have ever taken with this new camera, starting over and looking forward to lots more adventures in travel and photography.

so to my fairy camera godparents…you guys know "thank you" doesn’t even come close. though you have insisted i offer you nothing in return, i can at least start by sharing your amazing generosity here on flickr. the media floods us with stories of sadness, but i felt compelled to offer your phenomenal gesture here as a way to cancel some of that out.

and to my other flickr friends…many thanks to all of you for two fun years of sharing stories, learning, and growing in this craft. cheers to everyone, and happy new year!!

Wait a Second...

Sunset@Second Beach, Washington

Had a fun time cruzing around the Olympics with Aaron and Lisa last Thrusday. We didn’t come arcoss the most ideal situations for epic clouds, but it still was fun. Just getting out and shooting with some good peps makes it all worth while.

Thanks for stopping by
Vinny 🙂

Spring Nature

The Obersee in the Bielefeld area is an artificial lake outside the city, a lovely place for walking, biking, or just to relax.j

Day 365 (9-29-10)


I know I don’t say much, but I would really like to take this opportunity to thank any and everyone who has ever left a comment, added one of my photos as a favorite, or put a photo of mine in one of their galleries. I really do appreciate it, and it means a lot to me. I started this project three hundred and sixty five days ago totally on a whim, and I’m so happy that I decided to do it, because it has been a blast, and I have had the chance to meet some really incredible people along the way.

This won’t be my last photo, if anything it’s only the beginning…

No comprendía la vida.
Sara la abrazó.
– Muchas veces te encuentras hechos que nunca acabas de comprender… No vale la pena torturarse, querida. Estamos aprendiendo, siempre estamos aprendiendo; incluso en el momento de nuestra muerte. Ella es nuestra última lección: la magistral. No tengas miedo de equivocarte mientras vivas. Recuerda: estás viva y eso te da la opción de corregir. Corregir es un regalo, ¿sabes? Pocas personas son capaces de apreciar su valor. No estás sola, Mazarine. Recuerda, ya nunca más estarás sola.

(Ángela Becerra, Lo que le falta al tiempo)

The Green House on the Ocean

The Green House on the Ocean in Gaspésie, Québec, Canada.

Cape Spear, located on the Avalon Peninsula near St. John’s, Newfoundland, is the easternmost point in Canada. Cape Spear is close to Blackhead, an amalgamated area of the City of St. John’s. You can rent this house in winter, fall, summer and spring.

Le cap d’Espoir (Cape Spear en anglais) est le point le plus à l’est du Canada (et de l’Amérique du Nord). Il se trouve dans la province de Terre-Neuve-et-Labrador, sur la péninsule d’Avalon à 11 kilomètres du centre-ville de Saint-Jean. Il est plus proche de Paris (située à environ 4 000 km) que de Vancouver. (wiki). Vous pouvez louer cette maison en été, hiver, printemps et automne.
