Street photography in New York City

The Gerry Daniel Photography blog is back! My energy, enthusiasm, and determination have returned. Stay tuned for some new things and the revival of some things that have been part of the blog in the past. A lot has happened in the interim between the last post and this post. The posts moving forward will sometimes written directly here while others may come from other sources such as my Google+ profile. That offers an opportunity to improve and broaden the content featured here.

Hang with me, spread the word, share with others. The more people I have reading and enjoying my blog, the better for me and the juggernaut that is Gerry Daniel photography, my art, and my ever expanding artistic and personal empire. Please share, link, reference, repost, like, give it Google +1’s, helps me in a lot of ways.

If you like my photographs and art enough to use any of it without my permission and believe my work is free for you to use, we fundamentally disagree on that issue. For the people that will take my work without respecting my ownership and legal rights no matter what I say or do, at least make an effort to give me credit for the work. I don’t think that’s too much to ask. If you don’t think this applies to you and/or you just don’t care, you just want the images and are going to take them no matter what, there is little I can do. I will try to take some solace that you found my work significant enough to use without permission and in violation of copyright laws. I doubt I will go back and make changes to any of the images posted with regard to trying to make it easier to identify that it’s my work. Going forward, ways to make it easier to identify the work as belonging to me will be added but it won’t be intrusive or obscure my images. I’m focused on what’s ahead.

accuracy matters to me, being informed matters to me, learning new things matters to me. i have learned a lot of new things as a result of my photography but sometimes i make a photograph just besause i like what i see. this photo was made in the Japanese Gardens at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. the flowers were blooming on a bare tree, no leaves at all. it's likely that if i had searched, i could have found the name of the tree and could properly identify them for the photo. that didn't happen. i liked the flowers, i photographed them and i moved on. sometimes it's like that.

i've probably mentioned this before and i will probably mention it again, the image that i post to Google+ these days is 60% quality. there are several reasons i do it, the reasons would likely bore you. the image i post on my photography is 100% quality. by and large, i would suspect that most people can't really see the difference. in the event that they purchase the image for a fine art print, the quality level becomes very important.

took a little time late in the afternoon to make a few photographs, i love the soft light near sunset, water lilies are a beautiful mix of exotic and primitive, they almost have the feel of being from another world

when i went out to shoot this afternoon, i didn't expect the water lilies to be blooming, compared to a lot of places. it's still relatively warm here but it has been cool at night, luckily i was wrong and the flowers were open. there was a time i compared the lure of the water lilies to an addiction, they would draw me over and entice me to photograph them. these days i don't look for a label for my attraction to the water lilies. they are there and my camera likes them.
