15-01-26 Weekly Photo Challenge – Express Yourself – Self Portrait Blizzard Version

A photographic portrait is a picture of someone who knows he is being photographed, and what he does with this knowledge is as much a part of the photograph as what he’s wearing or how he looks.
Richard Avedon

The Weekly Challenge is Express Yourself

My first take was 15-01-23

My second take was that

15-01-20 Weekly Photo Challenge: Serenity (Journey Through The Past Edition)

 Whether he is an artist or not, the photographer is a joyous sensualist, for the simple reason that the eye traffics in feelings, not in thoughts.

Walker Evans

Attempting serene

Take 1

Take 2

and now Take 3 – I can’t yet decide which attempt at this image from January 7, 2011 centers me in serenity more. Perhaps they make me too serene to care at the moment?

1-3-14 Snow-de-o-…D’oh

We had our first “blizzard” of the season.

Blizzard is a term that has become as overused as hero.  The Weather Channel continues its obnoxious habit of naming snow storms, but I bet they don’t name the storms that only hit North Dakota or Buffalo or Maine.

There are definitely places that had a blizzard but 6.4 inches in Central Park does not make the cut. It snowed and it was very pretty.
