My Flickr contact Tatsuo Suzuki posted this brilliant reflection portrait, taken with a Fuji X100F in Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan.
My Flickr contact and friend Gary Sharp took this terrific image of hikers on the Dellenback Trail on the southern Oregon coast with his iPhone 7.
My Flickr contact Werner Schwehm took this fantastic image of the interior of the Vienna University of Economics and Business library with his Canon 5D III and a wide angle lens.
Notice how he positioned himself relative to the floor pattern. It works very well.
Afternoon light on monoliths
Between Lexington and Park Avenue on 42nd Street, Manhattan, New York.
We were about to head into Grand Central to get on the train when we noticed that the light on both the Chrysler building and the two buildings across the street was striking. So, out came the cameras, for me for the first time in the day.
Golden hour is aptly named.
Note: I’ve had it with Adobe going back and forth on Lightroom subscriptions so I’m giving Apple’s Photos a real try. It’s far from perfect but once one spends a bit of time with it and drops the Lightroom comparisons (Lightroom is a much more sophisticated tool) it’s useable and even fun. Time will tell.
My Flickr contact Adam Bliss posted this excellent aerial shot of a field and trees with fall colors done with a drone.
My flickr contact Erik took this great shot in Oslo, Norway with his Ricoh GR.
My flickr contact Werner Schwehm posted this fantastic image of a concrete parking ramp taken in Leipzig, Germany with his Canon 5D Mark III.
My flickr contact Conall posted this amazing picture of a spider web with water droplets on it. Looks like a space shot to me.
Sage’s Ravine, Connecticut/Massachusetts border.
We took a nice hike down Sage’s Ravine and up onto Mt. Race. The water in Sage’s creek was low but there was a nice reflecting pool and I stopped and took a number of pictures at different apertures, less because I knew what I was doing, more because I’d forgotten which apertures I liked the effects of water ripple/reflections taken at. So, when in doubt, shoot a variety.
The problem is, I like the ripples at f/3.5, f/8, and f/11. They’re all interesting. So, I’m posting examples taken at each.
Manhattan from 1 World Trade Center
Looking directly north up Manhattan which is thirteen miles long. The George Washington Bridge (on the left) which crosses the Hudson River is about ten miles away.
The new construction on the west side just left of the George Washington Bridge (in the frame) is next to the High Line.
You can see the Empire State building uptown and the Washington Square Arch (Greenwich Village) in the green park closer in.
In the far distance on the right side of the frame is the Whitestone Bridge which connects the Bronx with Queens (Long Island). A bit further right (and out) is the Throgs Neck Bridge. Beyond those bridges, on the horizon is Connecticut (where I live).
The white vertical, windowless building face on the right (East River) is the United Nations Secretariat building.
Downtown from that on the East River is a large group of low, red apartment buildings which is Peter Cooper Village and Stuyvesant Town.
City Hall and bridges
This is looking east, north east.
The bridge furthest north (left) is the Williamsburg Bridge that connects Manhattan with Queens (Long Island). The middle bridge is the Manhattan Bridge and the bridge furthest south (right) is the Brooklyn Bridge which connects Manhattan with Brooklyn, the first bridge to span the East River and one of the oldest, large suspension bridges in the United States. Walking across the Brooklyn Bridge is a great thing to do.
On the Manhattan side of the Brooklyn Bridge is City Hall and City Hall Park (to the right of the sign: Emigrant Industrial Savings Bank).
The large buildings closer to the river and bridge are city and federal courthouses and offices.
The right side of the frame is the northern tip of the financial district including Wall Street. My shot down there didn’t work out because of sun on the window.
The other side of the river all the way to the horizon line is Long Island, right right side of the frame is northern Brooklyn, most of the frame is Queens.
The back/right of the horizon line is Kennedy Airport and beyond it the Atlantic Ocean.
There’s plenty more detail visible here and over time I’ll change this caption as we find things. Feel free to ID buildings in the comments.
