This weekend we went overnight to Asheville. I didn’t take any photos with my big cameras, only a few shots with my phone. But we stayed at the recently opened A Loft hotel, right in down town, which was pretty cool. They upgraded us to the pool level with our door opening on the terrace with our own private terrace level. It as really convenient, but you have to make sure to lock those terrace doors. Next room to us was rubbed in that afternoon, iPad and some other expensive toys disappeared. There were a bunch young females staying there, all bridesmaids for the upcoming weekend wedding. They forgot to lock the door.
Since we are on the subject of Asheville, we are going to see something from that area. I took this photo at Biltmore Estate last summer, it was part of my short time lapse video, some of you who has been here for a while will surely recognize. I think they cut the grass just an hour or so before I took this, I really like how those lines are taking my eye all the way to the house.
Sedona and its surrounding area offer some of the most breathtaking landscape views. We did a short hike at the Red Rock State Park and saw really amazing weather changes with the gorgeous background. Hard to not take a good photo when you see something like this. To really appreciate it you have to see it at higher resolution, full screen (hint – click on the image).
I go in cycles, sometimes it is red wine, sometimes it is beer cycle, the microbrew type of beer. With reds, it is something tasty, like Shiraz or Cabernet. What’s your poison?
I was walking early morning around the Bryant Park, looking for anything to photograph, didn’t really see anything in the park, but as I walked back out to the 6th Avenue I saw this huge skyscraper, all windows, reflecting the blue sky and fast moving white clouds. I thought that it might look interesting. To get the reflection I went all the way to the bottom of it and took a few snaps, trying to keep the lines symmetrical in the viewfinder. The final image was cropped heavily, the sky was removed and some other oddities at the top of the building cropped out as well. I was contemplating to keep the sky in the photo, but decided against it. Maybe I’ll keep it on the other shot, with less clouds, a bit more blue in the windows and up there in the sky.
Have a great week everyone, it is Monday after all. I hope I have a good one too!
