15-04-07 Back In A Blur (Weekly Photo Challenge)

Our blind hound whined. With that, a horde
Of voices gathered above the Ouija board,
Some childish and, you might say, blurred
By sleep; one little boy
Named Will, reluctant possibly in a ruff

Like a large-lidded page out of El Greco, pulled
Back the arras for that next voice,
Cold and portentous: ALL IS LOST.
FLEE THIS HOUSE. OTTO VON THURN UND TAXIS.
OBEY. YOU HAVE NO CHOICE.
James Merrill – verses 3 and 4 from
Voices From The Other World

Mexico City passed in a blur of spectacular images and food, people and history. We arrived home happy but blurry in time for Mad Men – quite the return to NYC!

2 images from the Churro fryer at the Mercado Roma…

The first the Churro and oil

3-24-14 Changing Eyes

Once upon a time I thought this was the best photograph I had ever taken. I still like it but…I’m not as taken with photography as imitation painting as I once was.

11-13-12 Travel Theme: Soft (Take 2)

Decided to take a second pass at Ailsa’s Travel theme of soft (other entries may be seen here).  This is not my usual style but I like it.

Shot at 6:45 AM on October 21, 2011.

Tech Talk Time:

Lens 300mm
ISO 200

1/15 of a second

I worked on it a bit in Lightroom. The main changes were dropping the exposure a stop and a half, soften the contrast and de-saturating.  A few other small tweaks but that is about it.
