16-09-08 Questions: I Have Questions

I went to a photo critique at the B&H Event Space today. I showed one of my favorite in-camera double exposure images from the summer…

This was a group crit lead by four very talented folks, two from the B&H Event Space and two from the Soho Photo Gallery. Several of them felt it was too green. One suggested de-saturating the image…

two others suggested taking it into black and white…

So I figured let us see. You go to crits to learn something and get other’s opinions and ideas, yes? So I thought I would give it a whirl.
Granted, I have not spent a lot of time tweaking the two alternates but I didn’t just push a button and say, enough, either.

I would love to hear anyone’s thoughts on which image they prefer.

“Life does not consist mainly, or even largely, of facts and happenings. It consists mainly of the storm of thought that is forever flowing through one’s head.”

Mark Twain

15-04-18 Travel Theme: Centre or Center

“When we speak the word ”life’,’ it must be understood we are not referring to life as we know it from its surface of fact, but to that fragile, fluctuating center which forms never reach.”

Antonin Artaud

Ailsa’s theme this week is…Centre.

I think we know what is the center of the universe at this moment…

15-04-14 – All Day And All Of The Night

“We’re all busy little bees, full of stings, making honey day and night, aren’t we honey?”

Margo Channing (Bette Davis)

All About Eve

Joseph L. Mankiewicz

I spent the morning in Central Park and the evening in Flushing, Queens. I find Flushing to be one of the most interesting neighborhoods in NYC. Extremely diverse, crowded, amazing food, wonderful people. A very good day. A wide spectrum of views.

15-02-16 Weekly Photo Challenge: Symmetrical Symmetry

“We don’t need no education
We don’t need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey! teachers! leave the kids alone!
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall.
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall.”

Pink Floyd

  1. “radial symmetry. a basic body plan in which the organism can be divided into similar halves by passing a plane at any angle along a central axis, characteristic of sessile and bottom-dwelling animals, as the sea anemone and starfish.”

The weekly photo challenge is Symmetry

My first pass is Here. However, I feel it wouldn’t be very symmetrical to only do one.

This image has nothing to do with the definition and lyrics above…
