On a recent trip into NYC to meet up with fellow Monochromia contributor Laurie and her husband Greg who were up from Virginia this past weekend my wife and I had a chance to stop at the bar in the new Moynihan Train Hall. This friendly chap was our bartender. I wish I would have got his name but I remember he mentioned he was from Dublin. He may not look like he’s over 15 years old but he sure knew how to properly pour a Guinness. Image was taken with an iPhone 12 Pro Max in portrait mode.

Buggin’ Out

For the past 2 months I have been going for 1 to 2 mile morning walks to get in a little exercise and also to clear my head. This morning while walking through my neighborhood I came across this VW Super Beetle. From the looks of the bumpers I believe this is a 1973 (which was the first year 5 mph bumpers were required). This Beetle brings back so many fond memories of my youth because in 1973 I purchased my first new car which was ironically a 1973 VW Super Beetle. For those of you that are not VW Beetle fans the Super Beetle featured a curved windshield, redesigned dashboard and a blower motor to control the heat output (very high end for a Beetle). Regular Beetle’s featured a flat windshield and the more conventional convection heating system. Both systems were still controlled by 2 levers in between the front seats but there was much less chance of your breath fogging up the front windshield on hot humid summer days and cold winter mornings. Photo was taken with my iPhone 12 Pro Max.

I cycle past this bridge every day. I took this very early one morning with a mini gorilla pod and an iPhone 12 Pro Max.(The best camera, is the one you have with you at the time). It came out rather well I think.

Great Ending

After attending an Eric Clapton concert at Madison Square Garden we were on our way back to the new Penn Station and I had to try a night shot with my iPhone 12 Pro Max. I used the widest lens for this shot.

One of my many “early in the morning” shots. I couldn’t stand here and take this kind of shot later in the day. I actually took this on my iPhone and processed it in PS Express.
It came out not too bad, I’ll be honest a little overdone but, It has a nice feel and the composition works I think.

Windblown Hair

Black And White Photography, Joseph, Mobile Photography, Photography

This is the love of my life, my wife Theresa. I am posting this image because I hardly ever see her with her hair all messed up like this. As any of you contributors who met her in person already know usually every hair is in place. Terry is at the final stage of growing her long hair out to its natural beautiful shades of gray. She swore off dying her hair a few years ago. I personally think there is something special about a woman who is brave and bold enough to embrace their natural hair color as they age. Terry is 61 years old and I think she is beautiful especially when we are both laughing at me taking a goofy windblown shot like this. I took this image on a beautiful but windy Sunday morning sitting by the Great South Bay in Babylon, NY with my iPhone 12 Pro Max in portrait mode. BTW you will rarely catch a glimpse of Terry without a cup of Dunkin Donuts coffee in her hand. I love you Terry ๐Ÿ’•
