Welcome to the concrete jungle where dreams are made of, and squirrels reign supreme! If you’re a nature lover, you might be surprised to learn that New York City is home to a wide variety of furry inhabitants – and none are more prevalent than the beloved squirrels.
From the tree-lined streets of the Upper West Side to the sprawling greens of Central Park, these furry little creatures can be found darting across sidewalks, playing in trees, and scavenging for food. And as charming as they may be, their impact on the city is not to be underestimated.
Squirrels have become a staple of New York City’s ecosystem, providing both entertainment and ecological benefits. While they may occasionally cause headaches by chewing through power lines or raiding trash cans, their presence adds a touch of nature to the urban landscape. I love the Furry Inhabitants!
So, the next time you’re strolling through the city, take a moment to appreciate these playful creatures and their unique place in New York’s ecosystem. And if you happen to snap a photo of a particularly photogenic squirrel, be sure to share it with the world – who knows, it might just go viral!
To create the bokeh effect (blurry background), simply zoom in as far as you can. Also, dial down the aperture as low as you can. And don’t forget to always focus on the eyes of the subject…
Capturing enchantment through the lens, the bokeh effect in photography transforms backgrounds into blurs of light. Achieved by setting a wide aperture, such as f/2.8 or lower. Selecting a fast lens, this technique elevates the subject against a dreamlike, blurry canvas.
As the foreground comes into focus, distant elements gently dissolve into glowing spheres, adding artistic appeal to any image. Let yourself be enchanted by the magic of bokeh by choosing a shallow depth of field. I often use this effect when taking photos of people or animals.
