Sign of the times

I usually shy away from using HDR. I’m not really a fan. However I do think some shots are worth the effort so to speak. This is a shot I took in Sweden a few weeks ago. I love the bikes and, the signs on this hut. I’ll leave you to use Google translate to find the meanings. Happy hunting.

Spied this wonderful message stenciled on walls within the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. I thought this was a particularly appropriate photo to post this week, as in just a few days, I’ll be traveling to New York City for a two-day street photography workshop followed by the much-anticipated Monochromia blogger meet-up for the weekend! A week immersed in photography in the Big Apple making new friends and meeting up with old is my definition of “woo-hoo”! Catch you all on the flip side 🙂

A Night at the Movies

Still test driving my friend’s Nikon D7000, I couldn’t resist putting the camera through its paces when I walked by my local movie theater late one weekday evening. I was drawn to the nearly deserted lobby, and of course, all the lines, curves, and shadows and the brightly lit signs. I loved the possibilities this scene held for a black and white conversion. The result? More love for the D7000!
