So today we went to Bushwick the new frontier as my husband calls it. It is where we might buy an investment property. There is an awesome park there with an exceptional kids part with awesome artsy jungle gyms and the such.

I also decided that I would use this blogg more for puting up my photos. I love taking street outdoor photos but have given up carrying an SLR all the time. They are too big and with a kid it is too hard. So I have been on a quest to find the perfect digital camera to be able to take candid street shots to no avail. Usually the shutter lag is way to slow for it to work for candid street shots. Although I loved the digital point and shoots because finally the LCD frame is exactly the picture frame which was never true of point and shoot film cameras that I never liked. Well finally I found the perfect digital extremely compact camera. The casio lx750 or some name like that. It is awesome because it doesn't have the shutter lag since it does not lock until focus. You have the choice of just pushing down the shuter without waiting for it to focus on the middle focus ring.

Well it works out perfectly because it mostly is in focus when you just push it, it is fast and taking that chance is the same as when you do manual focus with an SLR. You just focus on a certain mid point and then just shoot and hope it is in focus. But you miss street shoots if you sit there and focus forever so this works out great. Suposedly this is the first point and shoot digital camera to work that way and finally.

So these were the shoots I took today in the Bushwick area of Brooklyn. I can't find a bagel.

O I would love one of these pictures. I am a native of Bushwick and remember my summers in Highland park. You captured those kids in the sprinklers beautifully.
