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?

He was running. I bet if I had managed to get into Central Park I would have seen some actual runners out there (fortunately, I always take Saturdays off myself). I also saw a few people on bicycles!

SK, that photo is gorgeous! You can almost feel the texture of the water and the sand. 8)

A beautiful sunrise over the pacific last week.

Yeah, the sand looks more dense than the beaches that I've been too. Nice shot.

 ::)  Why do I think you'll be running today? Maybe you should get some cross-country skis, or cleats. You just be careful.

The park was beautiful! The main drive was clear. It may have been a mistake to do the reservoir track, but there were plenty of others out on that bumpy lumpy compacted snow, too. Full sunshine most of the day. I did my usual Sunday jaunt, the six-mile main drive, plus instead of two reservoir laps, a single one and another 1 1/2 miles on the main drive, plus to and from home to total just about ten miles. And the only problem was crossing the streets to get into the park, and out again ... major swampy squishy wet slush, which is OK to navigate in serious boots but not running shoes.

^ Sorry about the OT stuff!  :D

Back to topic ... I had "Flickr Mail" today to tell me that I had been invited to add three of my blizzard photos to the group "Snow in the City" ... the first of the four in my last post on the previous page, and these two others:


Blizzard, New York City, January 23, 2016 by K CoblentzNYC, on Flickr

I'm not terribly active on Flickr, and I know nothing of Flickr groups, but of course I was pleased to have three of my photos selected. And of course I added them to the group: https://www.flickr.com/groups/[email protected]/pool/

That's very cool. I saw yours in the group. I thought it was all NYC, but then I saw this one, and knew it immediately.

Anyway, congrats on being included in the group's album. :)

Here's one of mine, from 2013, going 'round in Tumblr... which reminds me I haven't taken a photo in months  :o

Yes. I have been in London for awhile now. Finished my BSc Film & TV Production course last June and doing a few bits and bobs in tv (and also as a tv and film extra :) )

Here's another one, this one from October 2015.

My father's hands, he's slicing a chestnut (one from our crops in Portugal).

Agreed! Love the bokeh in that second one. (I just learned that word.)

 :) Thank you, guys.

Matt, I never thought about an exhibit, I always feel I am under-qualified... and I see amazing photographers with amazing photos and techniques WAY BETTER than mine. I am just trying to capture a (simple) moment and I don't have much of a technique or photographic know-how.

You can see more of my "moments" here, that is my only exhibit  ;)

Your gallery is beautiful. Please continue to post the images here in this thread for all of our members to enjoy them. As for not doing an exhibit, if you ever felt like doing one, you should. You're as good as anyone else. You may not know the techniques, but that's like saying Jimi Hendrix wasn't a great musician because he couldn't read music. Sometimes, it's just natural. Do it if you have the interest -- you're good enough.

Another bridge in Nashville spanning the Cumberland River.

And Happy Birthday to American Beauty! There's a birthday thread for you elsewhere in the OT forum. Check it out!

NYC with the Metlife building, which was formally the Pan Am building featured at the end of Coogan's Bluff.

Sorry, but I think that's the wrong MetLife building! That one is on Sixth Avenue, across from Bryant Park. The one that used to be the Pan Am Building is a couple of blocks east of Bryant Park.

Did you take that shot from the Empire State Building? Here's another shot from that vantage point that I found on Flickr. On the left is the green building with the MetLife sign ... on the right the "real" MetLife Building.


New York (North facing view of the Bank of America Tower,Rockefeller Center,Citigroup Center,MetLife Building & Central Park,from the Empire State Building) by Netty 78, on Flickr

Here's a story on the "other" MetLife building:

PS, I like SK's photo a lot better than the one from Flickr. Those colors are way too gaudy!

Two Metlife buildings!!

What a shame. The only shot I have of the real one is half of the building on the right. :(



Taken from the top of the Empire State Building.  8)

There you go! The Pan Am Building (most New Yorkers still think of it as the Pan Am Building) is on the far right. 8)

A much better shot than Netty 78's!
