New York frame of mind


 

After yesterday’s post, in a New York frame of mind today, and a look back to 2015:
 

Studio 365: Day 266 – September 23, 2015

City of the Imagination I – VIII 23.9.15

City of the Imagination began on Day 261 in response to this week’s Photo Challenge: Grid. Variations VII and VIII were posted yesterday for Day 265, so today I thought I would put all eight together as a final City of the Imagination grid. Look for more to come in the next day or two that will definitely now be off the grid.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale

Day 37 ii

New York, New York

Can there be anything more dramatic than the scale of the Manhattan skyline glistening and glimmmering in the early morning sun, as captured with my iPhone through our taxi window on the ride from JFK this morning after our red-eye flight from Vancouver. I know it’s not the greatest of photos but I feel it captures the beauty and majesty of this magnificent city waking to a new day.

Yes, for those of you who follow thechangingpalette, we made it to New York this week after our trip was cancelled a week ago because of the weather, and spent a glorious morning at the Matisse Cut-out’s exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, an exhibition that is all about scale and color and harmony, just as New York itself is, and about which more to come.

Photography 101: Weekend Twofrom dawn to dusk and into the night

alight 8

Throughout the summer I have been photographing the city skyline of Vancouver against an ever changing sky. Cheri’s suggestion that we consider the quality of light throughout the day for this weekend’s Photography 101 submissions has given me the perfect excuse to put some of these photos together. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking them.
