9-27-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime (Que Sera Sera)

Nighttime

Told you I would be back.  I love the night, I always have. I love the different feel, the texture of the air, the shadows, the mystery.  I also like the night because no one else is around to interrupt your train of thought, to demand answers to questions you have answered already, to tell you that this project is a crisis and that email must be answered. Eh, I am a little bit grouchy today. Too many people wanting things, answers etc. Que Sera Sera.

Anyway, I love the night and I especially love the night on Blackfish Creek in Wellfleet, Cape Cod, MA.

8-8-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture

This weeks challenge is: Texture. (You knew that)

A little change in ISO and a little change in shutter speed certainly changes the texture of the water in Blackfish Creek.

5-27-14 Memorial Night Walk Through Central Park

A holiday Monday and the crosstown buses are running infrequently. I had spent 3 hours working with a client on the deep east side in the 70’s and decided to walk to the west side subway through the park. It was a gorgeous night. I took the 72nd Street transverse past the Bethesda Fountain to Strawberry Fields. Walk with me…

4-10-14 Night Shot

Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems. -

Rainer Maria Rilke

 

Last night it felt like spring. Almost everyone on the streets had clearly made a decision to dress as if it was 5 degrees warmer than it was and the wind was blowing 5 mph less. I just decided to wander around with the camera and play a bit.

9-22-13 Weekly Photo Challenge: From Lines To Patterns: Hoyt Street, Brooklyn Edition

This weeks Photo Challenge is From Lines To Patterns. My first attempt is here.

Last night my long time friend Chris Havens held a party to celebrate a zero birthday.  His apartment has a roof deck. I took this picture at about 8:30 pm. I thought it came at the challenge obliquely but fit it well.
