Showing off my camera

I really like my new camera. It's a Canon Powershot SX510 with a 30x optical zoom. The pictures of the view from my window really are better than before, I think. Here are a few that show what I mean.

Things are just Ducky at the Marina










The Browning of the Green

Before

Out with them -- off with their heads!



After





All the nice Green Groundcover is now gone and in its place is the the Brown Waste

And did it really take three workers to do the job? I asked one of them why they were removing all the green and he replied: They're weeds! Well darn, those were the prettiest weeds we've seen. And now in their place we have the dreadful Brown Waste.

This happening all around Peter Cooper Village right now. We're wondering: Is this a make-work project?

You GO, Graveyard and Glinda!



Graveyard and Glinda get dropped off to play at PCV.
Bernie Goetz

Glinda the good squirrel, plays hard, while the mysterious and mischievous Graveyard plays hard to get.


Glinda



there she goes!



Graveyard


awfully cute

Soon after she gets there Graveyard makes like a GHOST and disappears. Squirrels are experts at hiding. If they do not want you to find them, you will never find them!

 
The best way to find squirrels 
 
What IS this?
