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.

Dueling Birds?

A few pictures of Cranes (I think) from a visit back in 2010 to the  Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge

In the first picture it looks like they are getting ready for a duel.

Brunch

About three years ago we took my nieces and nephew to a pumpkin farm in Mt.Laurel NJ.  After reviewing all the pictures of the pumpkins I feel that this picture turned out even better that the pumpkins did.

I hope you like it!

Reflections

This photo was taken in July of 2011 at New Brooklyn Lake Park, I like it because the reflected sky is bluer then the actual sky.

Shadows

I decided to post these pictures because I like how the shadows fall on the seed pod and the leaves.

No Side Street Sunday Post

Normally on Sundays I would post my Side Street Sunday pictures but today I stayed home. My grandson Arai did not want to go to the sitters, he wanted to be with Mom-mom, so I relented and agreed that he can stay with me.

My grandson is a handful (in a good way most of the time) so I knew that it would be challenging if we went out on an adventure and on top of that it was not a really great day for pictures.  I opted to stay in watching Dora the explorer and Team Umizoomi just to name a couple of the children’s shows that I had the pleasure of viewing.

Between his million and one questions and singing along with Dora,  I managed to go thru some old pictures and do minor edits in SnapSeed to make several post.

I stopped by this ranch about 2 years ago and the owners were generous and allowed me to take a few pictures.  These are only 3 of the horses that they had. As soon as I started to walk to the fence they came to introduce themselves to me.  Over time I have forgotten their names so for this post I have renamed them…..Espresso, Butterscotch and Octavius
