It felt like stepping into a Norman Rockwell painting when I attended the John Philip Sousa Memorial Band Shell concert, complete with a friendly greeting from Port Washington’s Lions Club mascot, at Sunset Park, on Manhasset Bay, during a vibrant  July 11th sunset.

The Port Washington Community Summer Concert Band, with Conductor Aaron Prindle, presented the program “Red, White, and Youth” – including iconic patriotic songs and ones younger audience members easily recognized, such as the theme from Daft Punk’s Tron movie soundtrack.

Last Saturday night, November 9, 2013, in Manhattan, after a much anticipated Nikon workshop by STEVE SIMON, the Passionate Photographer, I walked around the block to capture night photos at Bryant Park, whose Winter Village has long been a visual and sentimental favorite of mine.

The pink and green shadows each skater cast on the ice immediately caught my attention, and I used my Nikon D4 to capture the festive, energetic, colorful scenes at the Ice Skating Rink and Holiday Shops until around 9:30 pm.

Horrifically, tragically, about 90 minutes later at the rink, two teenagers were shot.
