Spending time with great friends is so important in this day and age of "social media" and texting. Thanks Rebecca & Chris for a wonderful evening of chilling ... Chris your cooking skills are on point!
Assignment: Show us a landscape, real or imagined. Tell us about a place: what happens there (or doesn't), who goes there (or doesn't), when were you there, why were you drawn to it?
Boston Public Library: Bates Hall - I was drawn to this venue because of the tones and light. The natural lighting pouring through the huge windows ... combined with the deep tones of the room along with a splash of green ... I could've spent a few more hours here.
Already looking forward to my next trip here!
Can objects hold in them some part of the person who originally owned them?
Can objects tell stories? Can we give them new stories by altering the context?

A bit cliche ... but I'm not a writer.
On my way out to lunch today I couldn't resist the urge to snap a quick photo of those wonderfully puffy clouds ... haven't seen anything like them for a while now.
As someone who prefers to drive to New York (99% of the time) ... thought I'd try something different this time. As I'm way too old to take the bus ... jumping on Amtrak for the journey was the new plan "a", with camera in hand. Trips to NYC include spending time with my dad and shooting the remainder of the time with a few buddies. This time, I was able "shoot my way" into Penn Station. All photos taken while in motion.
Gear used: Leica M10, Summicron 28mm f/2.
Settings were primarily: aperture 5.6, ISO 1,600, zone focused.
The moment we left Cuba ... I knew that I needed to return. And now, all of a sudden (it seems), I'm feeling nostalgic, so here are a few more photos from back in April. This should hold me over for a few days ... LOL!
My real estate work life provides opportunities for travel to different conferences. As one would suspect ... my camera(s) is always packed. This series was taken on recent RE/MAX convention in Rhode Island durinig a photowalk lead by a great friend and fellow photographer Jane Berger.
When we think of sunsets, we think in color. While this may be true ... I'd like to add my view from a tonal perspective. Gray tones that is ...
