    Macaw at the zoo. 3rd time shooting him, finally got one I really like.

    Mostly I spent the day at the tiger enclosure failing to even see him. Giving up on the tiger now.

    So this is my dad with his new breathing machine he uses while he sleeps; he retired as a head supervisor for New York City Sanitation at the age of 47 in 2005.

    But in 2001, he quit smoking on New Years Day and has gained a significant amount of weight; and after that September 11th happened.

    He was one of the many men who helped clean up the great city, but at a huge price.

    Nowadays he has problems sleeping and breathing and also stops breathing in his sleep, and the city is finally trying to take notice and help the other hardworking individuals besides the policeman and fireman that were affected.

    I just hope he gets/stays well.

    anp and kiwi, thanks alot, i appreciate the comments.

    i wanted to mention that iw as going for a shot that showed fear and confidence at the same time, i thougtht i captured the confidence in his eyes being closed and the fear in his hands on the straps.

    kind of a skeptical yet confident, "lets do this" type of feel.

    Dylan, my heart goes out to your dad and family. Thank him for me, those buildings held a significant part of my childhood... watching them being built and playing in the elevators as a youth. Unless you actually saw them it's really hard to appreciate their true scale and beauty. But that pales in comparison to the hearts and charity of true New Yorkers. My best to you and yours happy holidays.
    I thought about who I am... and realized I was an
    unformed, unreconciled imagery, without "GOD"


    NikonD?
    and some other Nikon stuff

    Thank you Aldor88, VR and Tomcat. I was just there for one day. Therefore, it was the only time I had. It was strange walking there. There was not a single soul in the area.

    DPR. I love that shot of the bird. The colour is nice!
