Oh, what Matt might do with that information. ;D


I already knew that! I noticed AB would show up shortly after a post was made in this thread. WHY do you think I have about 50 posts in this thread?  >:D

But, eventually, even after 30 years of hobbyist photography, I'm going to run out of photos to post. (Then you'll get the crappy ones.)

The thing I like about this photo I took, is the deep blue sky.

It's beautiful! And you were closer to the Statue of Liberty than I've ever been. ;)

That's a great photo!  :)

 :o  You should go.

I mentioned a trip to NYC with my grandmother when I was 14 earlier in this thread. Well, to expand on that story a bit...  (and to realize how special this all was, you HAVE to consider that she lived in poverty, and was a widow for many years living alone on Social Security) she wanted to show me the city, and booked us two tickets on a sightseeing bus. The bus took us to the World Trade Center, and I looked across the water and saw Lady Liberty, and nearly dropped my camera. My grandmother always made fun of me for that for the rest of her life... always remarking on my looking like I was going to fall over when seeing that across the water.  That was the closest we'd get to it on the bus. Then we went to the Empire State Building, and the bus let us off for 15 or 20 minutes to look around. I told my grandmother we had to go to the top! She said we didn't have time to go to the top. I said "But we REALLY NEED to go to the top."  We were only at the very beginning of the bus tour, and she said 'Okay, forget the bus... we're going to the top."  And we ditched the bus, and went to the top. And, as luck would have it, of ALL the many pictures I took that day, I only have this one and it's of her on the roof of the Empire State Building.



She then hailed a cab and asked me what I wanted to see... we would have our own tour. So I said the Statue of Liberty, and she said "Can't get there by cab."  And my response was, "How do we get there?"  (Do you want to smack me yet? The amazing thing is... she didn't.) 

So that's how we wound up on that Circle Line cruise, which let us off at Liberty Island. And, can you guess what I wanted to do?  "We have to go to the top!"  She said "I can't make it up those steps, but you can go!"  And I didn't want to leave her. I'm really glad I didn't. We just stayed on the island, and I took pictures, which I don't have anymore. But, I've been back a bunch of times. I've NEVER gotten a shot as good as SK's. :)

Breaking the rules by shooting directly into the sun. The resulting "watercolor painting" look was a natural result.

AB, what's going on in this picture?  It's not photoshopped or edited.




And now that I've got your attention.... ehem... you have PMs to answer!  :P

Exactly! It's Cloud Gate (the Mirror Bean) in Chicago's Millennium Park. Here it is, zoomed out a bit:




And here's a better image of it from Chicago's travel website:

I uploaded a couple dozen of the photos I took in the blizzard today to Flickr. I'm sure there used to be a way you could link to a slideshow there, but I can't seem to find it, so I'll post the link to the album. To see the pics as a slideshow, click on the little "screen" icon above the title frame of the album.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157661544486053/with/24487144791/

The first few were taken from my window, then a couple from my building's entrance. Most of them were from safely inside the Time Warner Center. I cropped most of them a bit, but didn't do much enhancing otherwise. A couple I tried it on looked too bright. This was a white-out day.

Here's one, just to have an actual picture in this post:



I was going to crop out the arm holding the phone/camera at left and the guy striding out of frame at right, but I decided I actually liked it better this way. What do you think, fellow photographers?

Nice picture! I agree not to crop out the people on the sides. The people that are in the blizzard are the most interesting focal points of these pictures.

I can't believe how many people were out there in that weather.

I posted a picture of my backyard and antique rustic bench in the weather thread, but I got a better angle today, and the snow finally stopped. So this is the most we got:



I didn't leave my property since the snow started to fall. KC is much more bad ass than me. The only focal point I've got is the bench.  ;D

We're New Yorkers. We don't let anything stop us.

I'll post a few at a time ...

Those four were all taken from my window about noon today. I went out a little while after that.

You can if you want, but I guess that is a lot!  :-\

Last photo -- is that guy running, or does it just look that way?
