Angles and Lines

The more I get into photography the more I notice things around me.

At first glance the first picture is just a simple alleyway with some guard poles.  When I think about it for a photo I began to see the lines and the contradiction between the lines and the circular columns. I begin to imagine different ways to take the shot.

The second photo is an old brick building but I did not want to take it straight on I wanted to see it from a different point of view.

Finally I like the contradiction between the 2 buildings besides old and new.  The tall building the lines are well-defined bu the second on has more curves.  To me they are opposites.

I welcome your thoughts and opinions on how you shoot or determine what you will shoot.

Mr. Townsend the Violinist

Meet Mr. Charles Townsend, Violinist – Fiddler.  He was playing Christmas tunes in the Love Park yesterday.  I wish I would have thought to get a video of him playing.  His music was GREAT!

Side Street Sunday

My visit to Love Park and City Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  Click on the links to learn about the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection.

One little know fact about the Love Park statue is that actor Kevin Bacon’s father was involved in its creation/planning.

Santa decided to stay in the city of Philadelphia for a few more days and I was lucky to get a shot of him at Love Park last night.

WP Photo Challenge: Warmth

Today my cousin Michael and I went to Philadelphia, PA to take some pictures for my “Side Street Sunday” post.  On our way to Love park we stopped on a random street to take some shots and this young lady started smiling for my cousins camera or maybe just for Michael.

She totally fits this weeks WP Photo Challenge – Warmth.  Here in NJ/PA the weather was in the low 50’s.  Was it a nice day?  Yes it was a beautiful day here, but definitely not warm enough for shorts and flip-flops.
