Reflection at CMOA Last Day of 2018

Mary and I went to the Carnegie Museum of Art yesterday, the last day of 2018.

Here we are reflected in artist Dan Grahams Heart Pavilion sculpture.

Our weight appears to fluctuate depending on the curve of the mirror. Our legs reminiscent of Giacometti figures in the last shot. Even with all our holiday eating!

We’ve had a nice time together over the Christmas vacation.

New Year’s Eve @ Columbus Zoo Lights

Available light photography at night is my challenge.  I find it fun but not always easy.  The one  family shot I lit the family with the flashlight app from the iPhone so I could get some light on their faces.  It was chilly but not bitter. We saw a rhinoceros, the tiger pacing, a sleeping polar bear but mostly it was the colored lights on every tree and branch,  some reflected in a pool of water.  My son Mark and his wife Erika, the four grandchildren(Anna, Michael, Jack and Maura), my DIL’s cousin Shannon who is like a sister to her  and her daughter Parker were all willing to stand still in the lights as I tried to focus quickly.  We had a lot of fun.
