Photo Friday: Night Skyline

July 7, 2017

The good thing about cityscapes is the different angles, and lighting makes each shot unique.

Photo Friday: City Lights

December 9, 2016

In this challenge, I wanted to photograph city lights in a different way.  Most of the photographs I see has a pretty solid skyline, so I thought I would break that up with the mostly dark condos in the middle ground.  I included the condo with all the lights on to add a little balance to the overall image.

Keeping in mind these challenges are not all about the camera, this shot was taken on my little point and shoot, while on a trip to the grocery store.city-lights

Photo Friday: Cityscape Sunset

August 26, 2016

I know sunset pictures are regarded as cliché, but there’s a reason for that.  You can have two people stand two miles apart, taking a shot at the same moment, and get two very different sunset shots.  No two sunsets are exactly the same, especially when you add in the element of clouds.

I decided to embrace the cliché with today’s photo.  It was taken off my balcony, with the Portland skyline, and the sun right behind it.

Photo Friday, On Thursday

January 22, 2015

Starting tomorrow, I was planning on starting something called Photo Friday.  Unfortunately, we will not have the internet starting tonight, for a few days, so I have chosen a picture I took last summer that I thought you would all like, of the Portland, Maine skyline with queen anne’s lace in the foreground, during sunset.  I hope you enjoy.  I hope to be back online shortly.

Day 65: Losing Detail

February 27, 2012

Losing Detail

 

As the day grows old

And the sun prepares to set,

All I see are shapes

That once held so much detail.

 

I want to thank all of you who continue to like my poems, and photographs.

Day 64: The Drama of Clouds

February 26, 2012

The Drama of Clouds

 

Many people would say they’re boring,

I call them exciting,

Many people would call them sad,

I call them fun,

Many say they look dead,

I say without them we couldn’t have life.

Without them we don’t

Have rain or snow,

And no matter how many times you look at them

You will never see the same one twice.

Without them,

We wouldn’t have vibrant lightning storms,

This is why I say

When you see clouds approaching

Don’t be depressed,

Appreciate the drama unfolding before you.
