The challenge this week is Eye Spy.

Here are the eyes of Glòria Juan Villegas, a young stand up comic (and acting student) in NYC.

15-02-14 Travel Theme: Transformation (Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Style)

Ailsa’s theme this week is Transformation.

Katherine and I were walking home after seeing Two Days, One Night, which is a truly good film with a wonderful performance by Marion Cotillard. It is a “small” film which points out some real truths about late stage capitalism.

But that’s not why I called you together. As we walked by Lincoln Center I realized it is Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Irony of ironies.

I am not a fashion photographer. I’m not a paparazzi, but I had my camera with me so…

I think I got some very good shots of the crowds and some models exiting the show but we are here to show transformation. I believe these three photographs fit the bill.

15-02-06 Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale

“Photographs, which fiddle with the scale of the world, themselves get reduced, blown up, cropped, retouched, doctored, tricked out.”

Susan Sontag

The word of the week: ScaLe in the sense of an object in relation to its surround. I thought that this picture of Abigail from our Grand Canyon trip quite fit the bill.

3-6-13 Phoneography Two

Phoneography (link).

As discussed yesterday, WordPress has declared March to be phoneography month so  I figured in for a penny, in for a pound.  I took these shots with my iPhone on the 1 train and worked in Snapseed.

I don’t often do self-portraits but when the train is being held in the tunnel for an interminable amount of time and your book is not grabbing you; you play.
