Intricate.   Complicated or detailed.

18th Art All Night 2015 Pittsburgh PA

Just got back from this wild event, the 18th ART ALL NIGHT in Lawrenceville.

Saturday morning I went down and registered a photograph that is hanging there now and I’ll pick it up Sunday afternoon.  This is the first year I’ve participated.  What a crowd!

Here are some of the patrons waiting to get into the warehouse to see the hundreds of artworks displayed. There are artists creating “LIVE ART” that will be auctioned or sold at noon Sunday.

Thanks for allowing me to blog you and your dogs!  Here are some Lawrenceville “neighbors” of the event.

Early Bird

Literally.

sunrise and gull ST George

The weekly photo challenge is Early Bird  The golden hour BEFORE sunrise.  This is just at the moment of sunrise on St. George Island State Park, Florida where I was visiting dear friends last summer.  The last morning we were there we drove and then walked to the end of the Island.  It was a beautiful sunrise.

Another early bird- in  a tidal pool, not at the State Park but by the house where we were staying.

Simply Afloat

From my kitchen this evening, photographed specifically for the weekly photo challenge: afloat.

I was reminded of the old science experiment- will it sink or will it float?  I chose two I knew would float.

Lucernarium Easter Vigil St. Patrick

Columbus, Ohio.  Holiday weekend with the family.  St Patrick Church.

Easter Vigil  Saturday evening.   The first portion- the Lucernarium.

To photograph a religious ceremony or not.  That was the question.  Someone was firing off electronic flash.Ugh.

I was trying for minimal camera shake. Being unobtrusive. Limit myself to a few shots.

It was really dark.  Just candlelight.  And the light of the bonfire from which they lit the Paschal Candle.

After everyone processed into the church, I stayed back and photographed the lilies on the table with the bonfire in the background.

And Donald and Marlene, Erika’s parents were inside the church a bit of a blur.

A woman in front was a blur, too.

Granddaughter Anna coming into the pew. Then I put the camera away in my bag and zipped it so I wouldn’t try to capture the ephemeral smoke from the incense.

Seven readings and psalms and intermittent prayers after each reading, all the altar candles are lit, the lights come on and as the Gloria is sung, the church bells peal and the sanctus bells ring and ring and ring.

And that is just the beginning…..

Happy Easter.


Ephemeral – NYC

Ephemeral

Took most these photographs of Steam/Smoke Streaming from around the city in various locations specifically for this week’s challenge  ephemeral

and added the light sabre on a knit blanket from home which is totally not with the NYC street scene but then

added  the New York City store window with the Shadow Lettering from the light.

PROM 2015 It wil be here soon and then disappear in a blink.


Years Later Everything Still Looks Fresh

Frozen in the moment. Still fresh,  Magic.

I went back to an external hard drive and dug through archives

Looking for images that say fresh.  I sure like to photograph my food. Scroll down for the fresh statue.
