Paper Birds

I had a very busy end of the week, and next week looks like more of the same. As a freelance it’s good to be busy. My wife and I were going over the collage loans for the two boys and we just don’t know how we’re going to make ends meet. It’s a good thing we all like macaroni and cheese.
Friday, I photographed the Wounded Warrior’s Solder Ride. There are three legs to this bike ride for wounded war veterans. The first is in Manhattan, the second is mid-island called Babylon to the Beaches, and the third ironically is here where I live at the eastern end of Long Island. I photographed the Babylon to the Beaches ride.
This is the second year I’ve photographed this patriotic and emotional event. Seeing these amazing men, missing arms, legs and sometimes both pedal twenty-two miles is an awesome sight. It makes you think twice about complaining. I will post a photo from this event in the next day of two.
Today’s post is an origami window display from Southampton Village that was made on a walk through the village while waiting for my son to finish work. I processed the raw image in Canon Digital Photo Professional and Photomatix Tone mapping.

what a neat shot! it reminds me of a kaleidescope.

yes, mac -n- cheese is a good thing to enjoy when the funds are limited. and if you can add in a little real cheese, you are still getting the recommended dairy. :)
