"Place, with a trace of humanity" Photography/Photo of the Day/Pittsburgh

Posts tagged “Chinatown

Thirds or Threes, Skip the Bokeh

The Weekly Photo Challenge is supposedly the Rule of Thirds but the presentation of the challenge  is so completely different from what I have been taught and teach- I thought of adding the grid on some of these images to size them up. But decided to just go with what I see as broken up into thirds, or in some cases threes.

Confined myself to a NYC archive to simplify the selections.  My gallery doesn’t fit the parameters of the suggested minimalist, off center subject and a blurry background.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Urban

I could sift through thousands of urban photographs for this week’s challenge: urban.

There are the suburban shots of the family in my file folders, too.

Choosing a cohesive urban series was my personal challenge. The most searched term on my blog and a true urban image is NYC Rooftops at Night  which I posted in 2009.

I live and work in the city of Pittsburgh, driving across bridges and past demolitions, playgrounds and chain link fences. There are skyscrapers and empty lots. When I visit my sister in lower Manhattan there are  hundreds more images to shoot and file. And why not throw in a couple from Zagreb where Matthew lives?

So much for a cohesive series.  Here are my urban selections for this week’s challenge. A couple will be familiar if you’ve followed me for more than a year.
