Frozen

I snapped this photo in New York City in 2005. I was shooting with a Canon Powershot G6. We were waiting for the subway to take us to see the Gates installation in Central Park. I found the man standing next to the pillar so still and unaffected by the fast moving train, amazing, since to me this was still a new experience. The flag being caught as well was not intended but I like it’s addition. I also like how his reflection even showed up in the blurred train.

Spring Thaw

I am truly looking forward to the next month or so when pictures like these will be more prevalent. I’m waiting patiently for the trails to finish thawing and turn from mud to packed dirt again. My bike is in my office waiting for a prognosis on the fork which has some rust on it, but otherwise just needs a check of all systems. While the visuals of Spring are amazing in their own respect, I’m looking forward to the scents. Fresh grass, flowers, budding trees, a warm breeze. (I’m choosing to forget pollen which will have me sneezing shortly). What is your favorite parts of Spring? or is this just that in between season to Summer for you?

Hide and Seek

Found Melody hidden under the bedcovers the other day. I’m not sure if she realized she was fully hidden since I could see her paw and tail. I came around to the other side to see her peeking out from underneath. She’s something special.

Flying over glowing cities

Timelapse video of a cross country flight at night, flying above clouds glowing with city lights. My advice to you is to make the video full screen, put in your headphones and enjoy the soothing ride. (via migurski) (Via kottke.org.) This is so beautiful. I flew from New York to California during June of 1990 on an evening flight. I was mesmerized by the patches of dark and then the cities that would light up from below. I remember Las Vegas really standing out, and when we landed in Los Angeles it seemed to be even brighter. The music is so soothing. Enjoy!

Bubblicious

(Via Corrie Haffly.) This is so incredibly cool. I applaud the person who made it because I would never have the patience to create this.
