I returned to work; a busy week at the office means less time for photography I am afraid! The days are getting longer, there is a little more light visible in the sky during my walk into work and on the way home. This week the light through the windows was the most fascinating.
My goal this week is daily posts on Instagram, and a different route to and from the office to see what new views I can find.
It has been raining for the last two days and when it isn’t raining there is a misty fog that hangs in the air. We expected the weather to be less than ideal, after all, it is winter here, so we were prepared with raincoats, hats, and umbrellas. Amsterdam is still a beautiful city.
I have already lost one hat, the wind took it for a ride, and it went sailing down the canal!
We will not be deterred, or cold or wet, I bought a new hat, and we continued to explore the city, taking photos along the way.
One last picture of the Guggenheim Museum in New York City, this time the exterior – I wanted toget in close enough to eliminate a lot of the background, yet still show off it’s unusual shape, to make the photo more about the geometry, and the lines. I converted the image to a high contrast black and white, the building is really quite dirty and the black and white reduced the amount of dirt that can be seen in the image.
yesterday was a busy day – we started at the World Trade Center. Before visiting the site of the memorial pools we went to the ticket center, where there is lots of information, videos, pictures, and stories of the day and lives that were changed forever. the site takes a while to get into – lots of security, and volunteers to answer questions.
