Weekly Photo Challenge: Threes

This week’s challenge is to create a three-picture story. Here’s my interpretation:

Occupy Every Space

Back in November of 2011, while walking around the Hollywood and Highland Center–a shopping complex in Hollywood– I heard chanting that sounded like a protest. I was at the top level of the structure so, as I looked down, all I could see was a very busy scene.IMG_2013I continued to look down trying to figure out where the chanting was coming from and finally spotted a small but very loud group of young people. They were singing, shouting slogans, and passing out leaflets, while a couple of policemen quietly observed them.IMG_2010As it turned out, they were part of the Occupy Wall Street movement, which was spreading all over the US and had reached Los Angeles. The last photo zooms in on the most vocal of the protesters, a sort of leader of the group. IMG_2011

A Photo A Week Challenge: From Color to B&W

This photo was taken in Tribeca, New York City. I love that area. There was a heat wave in New York that day and temps reached the low 100Fs. Walking around town was a crazy idea, but NY is worth any sacrifice.

Here’s a bit of Tribeca in color…IMG_1234 - Version 2

And here it is in B&W…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Treasure

This week’s Photo Challenge is Treasure. As a photography lover and amateur photographer, I immediately thought about it in the context of great photography and great photographers whose work I admire and treasure. So, instead of my own photos, I’m sharing a video of my favorite photographer, Henri Cartier-Bresson, talking about “The Decisive Moment.”

Oh, and here is my photo of my own little HCB treasure:_DSC0139
