12-12-14 A Delightful Evening

Friday usually means The Weekly Photo Challenge here at QH but not tonight. The #ICPEDUBOOKS signing ended just a few hours ago. I had a great deal of fun. The signing went very well. I have randomly grabbed a few shots – except for exposure adjustments they are just the way they came out of the camera.

I have way too many people to thank so let me just say that Winona Barton-Ballentine who taught this course and wrangled 12 very different folks into producing some seriously bad ass books, rocks.

It was great to see Susan Amy Rosenfeld, Jeff Antkowiak, Louise Pedno at the event and the support I received from Melanie Neilson, Kathy Gunst and Andra Watkins is very appreciated. A special shout out to Katherine and Abigail for putting up with me for the past four years…

Ever the promotional genius…notice the way I am showing the back cover of the book. (Thanks to Louise Pedno for the picture)

11-4-14 New York City Cliche

I met with a new client tonight. She lives in Trumpland around West 70th St and the Hudson.  After finishing up I decided to walk along the river and get some night shots. It is a pretty night, warmish but with wind. Without a tripod, avoiding camera shake was problematic but I think I came up with a few good images. Before I left though I followed the mantra…(and this is the only “rule” I never break)… I looked down, I looked around, I looked behind me and I looked up.

Lo and behold.

11-1-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Descent

Before we get to the photo let me just say that the temperature has descended quite a bit in the last 36 hours while the wind speed has ascended.

The view descends to the street…

10-28-14 The Madness That Is Monochrome

Leanne Cole runs a very interesting blog out of Australia. Every Tuesday for the last 35 weeks she has run a challenge she calls Monochrome Madness. I am an occasional contributor since that is not my particular bent but many people submit some amazing work. You really should click on the link and check it out.

This week I took one of my favorite color photos and monochromed it as my entry. You can see it and comment on it on Leanne’s blog but here it is.
