The green foliage is everywhere now as Spring starts its transition to Summer. Buds have blossomed into leaves, flowers, and other colorful flora. This time of year is great for color infrared and one of my favorite spots on the north shore of Long Island is Nissequogue River State Park in Kings Park. The park is situated on the Long Island Sound with beaches and the head of the Nissequogue River. The park is also densely wooded on sections which provides ample flora. The park was also home to a village of buildings that house the former Kings Park Psychiatric Center. The buildings are now deserted and crumbling, but the make good (and eerie) photo subject.
This a took a short trip on a sunny day to the park with my newest converted mirriorless infrared camera. An hour or two wondering around this park will allow you to get lots images, all different subjects with varied looks. For this weeks image I selected a simple vine as it works its way up this vacant building. By Summers end this little vines will reach the roof and beyond, but for now it points the way to the window.
