Graduation Day…Happy Color

Pretty girls and flowers is a hard combination to beat.

Urban Dog Sled

This photograph is why I like the Ricoh GR so much. Walking to the subway this morning, head down, thinking about the trip I was about to take, I had almost no warning of this highly unusual scene approaching at a very fast clip. The Ricoh has a setting for snap shooting where the camera is already programmed to take a picture at a…

Although they didn’t speak much (if any) english we exchanged happy…
