Weekly Photo Challenge: Waiting

On 21 August this year I was in New York and could go to Central Park to see the eclipse. I did not have a pair of special glasses, so I concentrated on other people who were also watching. It seems a little alienating, all of us looking up in the sky. Luckily we saw something, it was not all covered by clouds and worth the wait! For more responses to this challenge, have a look here.

Monthly Photo Challenge: The Changing Seasons 03

March gave us the opportunity to go out a little more, despite the occasional snow storm, such as the one on 20 March. The following day, it was cold and beautiful. We had the opportunity to look over Central Park from the south and we saw this beautiful checker taxi. Today I visited a friend in a health care center on the lower east side and travelled back up again by bus. On the other photos you find the UN Secretariat, one of the Trump Towers, and some photos of Central Station, other than the main hall. Scaffolding is still around a building in our neighbourhood, but that should disappear within the next few months. Stay tuned ….

Photography 101: Mystery

Show us something uncertain, and manipulate light around you to enhance the mood of your image. What was happening here? I tried to get the sunlight and don’t know how this blue came into the picture.
