17-03-02 The Last Time Ever I Saw

Our best friends are moving out of their gorgeous Riverside Drive apartment (to another beautiful apartment further uptown). They asked me to come by and shoot it for the memory files which I did 20 minutes ago. Those pics are for them but, they also have a spectacular view of the Hudson River. I’m heading out of town in 20 minutes so did not have a lot of time to work on anything but here is one pic from a 60 mph, 50 degree day.

10-28-14 The Madness That Is Monochrome

Leanne Cole runs a very interesting blog out of Australia. Every Tuesday for the last 35 weeks she has run a challenge she calls Monochrome Madness. I am an occasional contributor since that is not my particular bent but many people submit some amazing work. You really should click on the link and check it out.

This week I took one of my favorite color photos and monochromed it as my entry. You can see it and comment on it on Leanne’s blog but here it is.

Once upon a time I thought this was the best photograph I had ever taken. I still like it but…I’m not as taken with photography as imitation painting as I once was.
