Two of my favorite pictures of the past year…
Have a very Happy New Year!
I had a few minutes to play (I hate killing time, rather have playtime) between appointments this morning so thought I would see what was up in Union Square, other than the “pop-up” Christmas market.
Heard some excellent banjo music coming from the north end of the square and headed that way. I found Morgan O’kane siting near the subway entrance playing.
I stood and listened for awhile and then did something I simply don’t do on the street. I bought one of his CDs. When I got home, I popped it into the CD player and have been listening to it, over real speakers for the past hour.
Check him out if you have the chance.
A few weeks ago I posted about the reasons why I didn’t have favorite pictures of the Hudson. The favorites come and go depending on the whims of the time and the tides.
This image is a perfect example. When I first showed it to my various critical circles it received a very positive response: I had really drawn out the meaning and focus of the image. That mirrored my own feelings but there was a significant minority that felt it was desperately overworked and crying for attention.
About a year later that view became mine.
Now…I’m torn. I think I will go back to the basic raw image and see what develops. In the meantime, any thoughts are welcome!
