In this week’s photo challenge, Jen asked us to show something twisted.
For this week’s Photo Challenge: Liquid
Like Erica, who’s challenging us to share our Place in the World, I too have a thing for the Big Apple. This has to do with the combination of several things: beautiful architecture (I die for those art deco buildings); the proximity to water and substantial green areas (making it more than just a concrete jungle); and the abundance of cultural activities (wonderful museums, great theater and musicals, jazz clubs, etc). There’s something magic about NYC that puts me in a great mood, makes me want to go out and soak the energy around me. I feel inspired and experience a “joie de vivre” there that I experience nowhere else in the world. The last time I was in New York, in 2016, I arrived at our hotel after two flights (one of them international) and a long taxi ride from the airport, in terrible traffic jams. All of that while still recovering from the a severe cold I got at the end of our Brazil visit. I collapsed in bed, slept for a couple of hours, and when I woke up I felt a burst of energy and a strong urge to go out, walk for a while and stop somewhere for a good dinner. And so we did. And, like magic, I felt strong and healthy again. Only in New York!! Time to go back… 😉
Lines are so important in photography! I am always looking for them, especially for my architectural photography. Here are some photos taken at three museums in Amsterdam: The Hermitage, The Rijksmuseum, and The Stedelijk, and one taken during a tour of the city’s canals.
Dancers, sports fans, marathon runners reaching the end of the run! They all Smile!
A night owl like me never catches the sun rising. But I have photographed dozens of sunsets, everywhere I go. Here’s a sample for this week’s photo challenge:
My favorite place is not far from home. It’s a place I go often, just to be close to the ocean, breathe the air, listen to the waves, the seagulls, and just stare at the blue waters of the Pacific. I also photograph it all the time. I feel lucky…
