A 52-Week Photo Journey

… Mary Nell Moore's Photography


Week 13 – #18. Movie Title

Doug Albert, realtor with the Corcoran Group Real Estate in Manhattan, recently listed this penthouse in the building in which he lives and invited me to take some night shots for his brochure.  What a great view from the 1,100 Sq. Ft. wraparound terrace!  I thought there must surely be a “movie title” which this photo would best represent and then it struck me that this photo could very well represent the movie, “From The Terrace,” starring Paul Newman and his real life wife, Joanna Woodward, Myrna Loy and a young Barbara Eden.  It was shot in 1960.  I not only have seen this movie but Myrna Loy was the real life stepmother of one of my neighbors and I have even worn her full length mink coat with her initials embroidered on the inside lining!  I would not be a good realtor if I did not provide a link to Doug’s listing in the event you would like to purchase this penthouse unit at 101 Warren Street, Apt. 3160.  Take a look: http://www.corcoran.com/nyc/Listings/Display/3689266

Week 10 – #21. On The Water

Finding something to photograph “on the water” is not difficult to do in New York so after giving a lot of thought to it, I asked Mike to drive up to Croton-On-Hudson to the Croton Gorge Park so I could photograph the New Croton Dam. We had several days of rain while we were in New York so I was hopeful the spillway would be overflowing and the water below gushing with mist. Although that was not the case, I did enjoy seeing and photographing this beautifully designed dam. More information about the dam can be found here: http://parks.westchestergov.com/croton-gorge-park and beautiful photos of the dam with overflowing water can be seen in Rick Sammon’s website here: http://ricksammon.com/croton-on-hudson-workshop/ Rick lives in Croton-On-Hudson and he visits the area often. He has given workshops at my photo club in Chattanooga on two occasions and was the person who told me about the Croton Gorge Park.
