My flickr contact and friend Gary Sharp posted this wonderful abstract of striations in sand dunes on the Dellenback Trail on the south coast of Oregon. Taken with his iPhone 7.
Figures on a flatbed
Broadway, New York City.
My good friend Joy Brown has been making large bronze castings of her ceramic sculpture and is having a show of them in New York City. Joy has been traveling to China to work with a foundry there for many years and these finished pieces were shipped to the US in a large container by ship and arrived a few weeks ago. There will be a sister show in China opening in a few months.

We started at 10:00 pm and finished at 3:00 am. There were two flatbed trucks, ours with four pieces starting at 72nd St. and working north, the other starting at 168th St. and working south.

Many of Joy’s friends came from all over the country and they were joined by a crowd of curious and supportive New Yorkers. It was quite a scene although after midnight as we moved up town only the core group remained.
Tomorrow, Wednesday May 17th there will be a formal “opening” at 11:00 am at the 72nd St and Broadway installation. The show will be up for at least six months, maybe longer. Each setting has a map showing the location of each of the sculptures. It’s a bit of a hike to walk the whole thing but there’s a subway line running under Broadway and the pieces are near enough to stops so they can be easily gotten to.

Apple has put up a new page of tutorials on how to do various kinds of photography using an iPhone 7. They’re brilliantly designed, and very easy to follow.
I don’t have an iPhone 7 (6s) but much of this stuff is useful to any iPhone owner.
Bear Rock Creek crosses the Appalachian Trail two miles north of the Connecticut/Massachusetts border in Massachusetts.
I was inspecting one of the two sections I maintain on the Appalachian Trail and since I had my new Fuji X100F with me I decided to try out its ACROS filter on the falling water on this creek.
I’m still getting used to the camera but I do like it and while it’s bigger than the others I prefer to carry on hikes, it’s possible to carry it in a padded bag on one of my pack’s shoulder straps.
These images are almost straight out of the camera; I pulled the highlights down a bit to show more detail in the white water.
Flickr member Anthony de Schoolmeester caught this fantastic image of a puffin landing on the coast of Wales, UK.
Brilliant timing and the orange beak and webbed feet really pop.
