Weekly Photo Challenge- GLOW created by Jen H. this week.

This photo glows to me. Here are Anna and Maura greeting the sun. (Unretouched image)

Just happened to have spent last weekend with the family at Carolina Beach, NC and we got up each morning to watch the sun rise .  One day was overcast but we enjoyed our early breakfast and waiting for the light to come.

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale

The weekly photo challenge by Erica V. at WordPress is scale.  

“Experiment with placement and scale to show how big (or small) you can feel in a photo.”

Pedestrians on Cell Phones in NYC

Downright dangerous.

From my archives March 2013

I remember taking these photos as my sister and I walked down Fifth Avenue. Photographed with a Canon 5D.   I shot 188 images in about 45 minutes, Here are a few. Too many I know but it was hard to choose.

Pedestrians on cell phones can get distracted  and crossing the street while staring at your screen is risky.  These pedestrians were easy to photograph cause they weren’t paying attention to me. Well, maybe one or two noticed.

You could write a phone conversation dialogue for the images.




Three different women on a cell.
