Vampire’s Assistant at Midway Theatre, Forest Hills, Queens

A theatre lit up at night attracts my eye. (Is it theater or theatre? This sign ends in tre) I see theaters transformed and repurposed all the time so want to preserve the genre before they all disappear.

I shot the Midway Theatre  when I visited my sister in NYC and we went out to Queens on the subway to meet friend Matt and eat at Just Like Mother’s Restaurant. You can read a blog about the mostly Eastern European fare, see some Borscht-  if you click on the name.

I took this about three years ago (11/2009) but came across it when I was looking for a response to a weekly challenge and since theaters are a vanishing breed, I like to photograph them, read what’s playing.  Thought this was an interesting selection.  Always like to work on my night photography and think about how I would change the settings next time.

A week of bright shining stars.

The Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination inspired me to post twice and then I received these photos in my email.

I love it when my friends, family and followers respond with a photograph.

My college friend/ artist/ photographer Joyce Grasso sent this to me.  I wrote back and she graciously consented to be guest blogger. 

Shot through a car window with a cell phone.  Last Spring my sister and I met Joyce at MOMA and toured the Cindy Sherman exhibit.

Thanks for sharing your illumination capture of the star in New York City, Joyce!
