15-03-09 Weekly Photo Challenge – Orange Again

The challenge this week is orange. Now, of course, back when life was not as crazy as it is now, orange stood for the second highest terrorist alert warning color.  Ah, those were the days, eh?

But…

“Those were the days my friend
We thought they’d never end
We’d sing and dance forever and a day
We’d live the life we choose
We’d fight and never lose”

Gene Raskin

My first orange go is here.

But today I thought I would go with something a bit more traditional…

“Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze”

Sheldon Harnick

15-02-07 Weekly Travel Theme Photo Challenge (Outside The Lines)

“Visual ideas combined with technology combined with personal interpretation equals photography. Each must hold its own; if it doesn’t, the thing collapses.”

Arnold Newman

The Weekly Photo Challenge is Scale. Ailsa’s Travel Theme is Details.

I was out today playing with making double exposures in camera…when I looked at the images after I got home, I realized that they are chock full of details at scale. So I figured why not.

“The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,
Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.”

11-28-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Converging (Trio)

“To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.”

Henri Cartier-Bresson

The Weekly Photo Challenge is Converge.

A sunset trio of convergences from Riverbank State Park:

9-22-14 Last Sunset Summer 2014

As I post this at 10:29 PM EDT the Autumn Equinox is here. In New York, the summer was not very summer like. I will miss it anyway as it was a momentous season for my family.

I went down to the river this evening to say goodbye to the summer. The wind was blowing hard and the temperature was dropping. Fall is here. These are a few of the images that I brought back.
