These blossoms and stairs seemed to beautifully go together on this rainy day. Taken at the Central Park Reservoir in New York City with my Olympus Trip 35 and Fuji Superia 400 film.

The afternoon light at Bethesda Terrace hits the stairs in a perfect way for some romantic shots.

I love hanging out and watching the scene at Bethesda Terrace in Central Park. The stairs with all the tourists are particularly interesting and give ample photo opportunities. This time I had my Canon G9 digital. I converted this shot from RAW to BW with a photoshop plug-in.
I was watching people going up and down the stairs when I saw this young woman wearing bright red stockings approach. Working with a manual focus lens I pre-focused and waited for the perfect moment. The angle and color of the late afternoon sun produced an interesting shadow and a beautiful tone.

The Olympus Trip 35, a manual film camera from the 1970’s, and another one of my favorite instruments, does an excellent job at low-light photography. The trick is to set the camera on manual at f2.8 and the shutter will fire at 1/40 sec. With 400 ISO film most shots will come out beautifully. Here is an example of a stairway at Rockefeller Center in New York City., shot with the Trip on Fuji Superia 400 film.
The Apple store on Fifth Avenue is one of my favorite places to go for two reasons. Apple…..and the architecture. Another favorite of mine is the Olympus OM 1 camera. I’ve had mine since 1976 and it is still as good as new. They knew how to make quality products in those days. I took this shot of the glass stairs at the Apple store with my 50mm f1.4 lens on Kodak Portra 400NC film and I think the results far surpass what a digital camera can accomplish. But I’m biased 😉
I love working with shadows. Here I was observing people walking up and down the stairs at Bethesda terrace when I noticed these three women coming down. Because of the angle of the sun, late in the afternoon, the shadows of the women walking next to each other appeared to go down the stairs in back of one another.

Bethesda Terrace is one of my favorite places in Central Park to take pictures. In this case the stairs to the underpass and the dappled light coming through the trees create a perfect setting for this bride. I don’t know the bride, just happened to see her.
