Suburban Stars

Last night I took advantage of the new moon to experiment with some night sky shots right in my backyard. Living on Long Island does have its limits with light pollution, but I was still surprised at the amount of stars I was able to capture.

Next I am hoping to finally capture the Milky Way. Enjoy the photos and remember to look up and take in the beauty of the night sky.

Bareburger Brunch

I was super excited when Bareburger reached out and invited me to taste their new brunch menu at their Plainview location on Long Island. I had never eaten at Bareburger before but was already swooning at the incredible menu, which is all organic.

My friend Gina (in the photos below!) and I went this past Sunday and had the most delicious brunch while enjoying the awesome atmosphere inside. We both ordered the Queso Fundido – a dish including 2 eggs over easy, black bean salsa, pickled onions, vegan sausage, fresh avocado and tortilla chips drizzled with queso. We were also offered a flight (yes, a flight!) of pancakes, where we chose three different types. These included fresh blueberry, chocolate hazelnut and my favorite – coconut pancakes with blueberries and lemon.

Everything was absolutely delicious and I cannot wait to return and also to try their dinner menu. Very thankful for the great meal. Photos below 🙂

Camera Upgrade!

I’m very excited to share that I have purchased a new camera!

For the past 6 years I’ve been using the first DSLR I purchased, a Canon Rebel T2i. It has definitely served me well, but an upgrade was necessary. Canon’s new 6D Mark ii is a lovely addition to my equipment. I can’t wait to use it more and really see what I can do with it.

Here’s a shot from last night at Sunken Meadow:
