Easy one today, I think. What is the name of this place?Very
Weekend Update: Well, well. I thought most visitors will know it, not sure why I thought, maybe because it is indeed in the middle of the NYC, in Central Park, at the edge of one of the ponds, little place called Belvedere Castle. Very good pick Mr mvschulze, and no it is not Great Wall of China Chauncey, there is an American flag on top of it…
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!
East Coast is super wet right now, it seems like it is raining everywhere and it is really raining, I mean, like pouring down. I happen to be in Times Square during this big wetness period, got literally soaked wet all the way through my underwear, my shorts were drenched in water, I ended up walking right straight through deep pools of water in my running shoes, all to try take some photos of somewhat deserted Times Square. My first attempt with 14-24 didn’t go too well as it got immediately wet and I had to go back to hotel and change it to 24-70 as it has much longer lens hood and can keep external water from getting on the glass, well at least for some time. I think I got couple shots that were decent, here is one of them.
