Today was about the 7th time I had a day off since mom's passing that I could fully devote to taking pictures. In the past every time I had a free day off with no chores to take care of first, I was out of the house at the crack of dawn or as soon after that as I could manage, but today just like the other six that preceded it, I couldn't manage to pull myself from my homey surroundings until after twelve. It seems that my emotional energy still hasn't fully returned, but fortunately despite the late start, the extra hours of daylight available this time of year still left me more time to grab shots before the sun disappeared in the sky. In this case I had enough time to hop on the train after the Bronx Zoo closed for the day and get off at the Mere in Harlem. And as a bonus the angle of light coming from the low racking sun meant if you wanted to add a touch of warmth to your scene with your editing software, the results would look natural and pleasing.
