Mexico City – October 11, 2015
So, the challenge this week is happy place.
Just happens that K and I are in Mexico City for the weekend. This is rapidly becoming one of our happy places. I intentionally did not bring my card reader or external hard drive on this trip so I am unable to download what I have shot, shades of the bad old days of film! – so all I can show you now are my happy little iPhone/Snapseed pix.
A large change in the skyline of NYC between 2001 and 2015 as seen from a boat on The Hudson River…
And now from “The Changeling” himself…
The challenge – Grid
The other day several of us were talking about what we would tell a visitor to NYC they must see while they were here. Statue of Liberty? Empire State? Central Park? World Trade Center? MOMA? The Met? Lincoln Center? We agreed they were all good but…they aren’t really New York. If you are in Paris, you “have” to go to the Eiffel Tower but after you have been…do you really know anything about Paris?
During the discussion I realized that I have not shot very much in the city this year. A lot of Cape Cod, a lot of Mexico City, lots of portraits but not much city. However I just charged back through 2015 and came up with a few shots that I feel represent NYC much more than any building.
Here is a small piece of my New York.
Challenge = Connected
2 of the people in this picture have known each other since 1997. Those two have known the other 3 since 2000.
We had a going away party for Caroline and Ben who are off to their first year in college (Wesleyan University and University of Michigan Honors program). Abigail and Eva are starting their sophomore years (Smith and Wesleyan). Noah is a sophomore at Bronx Science. Their friend Edy (SUNY Purchase Honors Program) could not make it since she had just returned to school for her sophomore year – but trust me she was there.
I have a number of images I regard as much creepier than today’s image but my challenge was to go back through the past 24 hours and see if I had accidentally taken anything that was or could be made creepy. This is what I can up with.
You be the judge…
This is the image I submitted for Leanne Cole”s Monochrome Madness this week:
The Challenge this week: Beneath Your Feet.
My first response: Horseshoe Crab is Here
Back to Blackfish for response # 2. Walking the tidal flats at low tide, I came across this little beastie…
