Week 34 -#A4. Photographer’s Choice

Blue hour, my favorite time of day, provided me with this scene one evening as I was traveling to my office on Longboat Key. In addition to the lighting, the movement of traffic crossing the Ringling Bridge was a perfect “photographer’s choice” for a long exposure.

Week 33 – #41. The Night Sky

My friend, Susan, and I decided to do some Sarasota night photography a few weeks ago. Blue hour is one of my favorite times for photography and I was not disappointed with “the night sky” on this beautiful evening. I was thankful for the gentle breeze which created wispy movement in the clouds as they passed between the palm trees and moon.

Week 1 -#49. Where The ____ Meets The Sky

The Oculus, known as the new World Trade Center transportation hub, is located in lower Manhattan on the site of the World Trade Center and is indeed a strangely designed glass and steel structure.  It officially opened to the public in March, 2016. At a cost of 4 Billion Dollars, when completed it will serve daily commuters and visitors from around the world. During the next few weeks, I will post a few more photos representing different views of the Oculus which I think satisfy other 52-Week themes, but today I am sharing this photo which I took from the back side.  As I walked on the street behind the Oculus, I turned around and gazed in amazement when I saw “where the Freedom beacon meets the sky.”

Week 22 – #35. On The River

Chattanooga endured an excessive amount of rain during December, 2015 and it isn’t often that you see all of the Chickamauga Dam spillways open. On this evening just after 7:00 p.m., I was “on the river” with my camera and captured a long exposure which gave the turbulent waters beneath the dam a smooth, silky look. Alongside the river beginning at the Chickamauga Dam and stretching ten miles to downtown Chattanooga is a lighted and landscaped walkway dotted with picnic tables, fishing piers and public art, an example of which you’ll see in my photo.
