Photo of the Week #109

December 12, 2011

The photo I’ve chosen for this week is one of tens of thousands I’ve taken over the years for the Garden of Dreams Foundation, a non-profit organization whose mission it is to bring joy to children in the tri-state area facing difficult obstacles. This past Tuesday, Garden of Dreams held its Holiday in the Hangar event at New York’s JFK Airport. In a unique opportunity, kids flew to the North Pole for an afternoon holiday party complete with New York Knicks and New York Rangers activities, the Knicks City Dancers, Radio City Rockettes, and celebrities including the man himself, Santa Claus. And while the 30-minute flight time and plane never having left the ground may have been a dead giveaway, it was a memorable experience for all the kids, including the two Junior Pilots pictured below.

  • As a reminder, I will be donating $1 to the Garden of Dreams Foundation for each new person who “Likes” my Avi Gerver Photography Facebook page through this Friday, December 16. If I receive at least 200 new “Likes,” I’ll donate $2 for “Likes” #200 to 299. For #300 to 399, the Garden of Dreams Foundation gets $3 each, for #400 – 499 it’s $4 each, and $5 for each “Like” above that.

Photo tech specs: Canon 1Ds Mark II camera, 16-35mm f2.8 lens @ 16mm, f3.5, 1/200th, ISO 800, Canon 580EX II flash.
