This past weekend I went to the People's Climate March in NYC. There was over a quarter million people in attendance at the march and it was a great celebration as well as a call to action on climate justice. I spent much of the day taking photographs while also being a participant in the march.
I greatly enjoyed taking these photographs and am also fairly pleased with how they came out. I took these photos with a Canon Rebel Xti and 28-55mm lens which I borrowed from the photo department.

I took these photos with a Canon Powershot G12 that I borrowed from the Clark Univ. photo department. The photos were taken on a walk from MIT to Harvard Square on Mass Ave. in Cambridge. I struggled with the camera a bit because it does not work 100%. The photos came out simultaneously a bit blurry and noisy as well. I did what I could with what I had in photoshop to create these images.
Overall, I enjoyed taking these photos but was not so pleased with how they came out. I am usually too shy to take photos on the street but by taking photos inconspicuously I was able to branch out into my first street photography. I also spend a lot of time walking from place to place so it is a good opportunity for me to take photographs at the same time. I'm hoping to dabble in this a bit more over the course of the semester.

I am just delving into the beautiful world of photography. I have taken one film photography class at Clark University and am now moving into the basics of digital photography. I hope to share the images I make on this blog and get feedback and constructive criticism so that I may improve and learn. A life of photography is a journey and I am just beginning.
