OK, admittedly I have no idea if these people are Romans or not. I do know that all the pictures were taken in a plaza near the Trevi Fountain in Rome. None had any tourist gear and they all look like they were once in a Fellini film.
For the second year I will try to rejoin the Association I belonged to in the 1970″s and avoid paying back dues. Just a gluten for punishment I guess. My artistic goal is always to capture the decisive moment for each image. This is one of my newly framed images I plan to submit this year. I think the image is a perfect moment of this young lady jumping off the shoulders of her boyfriend in to the waiting arms of friends. Fortunately they didn’t drop her. The image was photographed at Chicago’s Cloudscape Sculpture in Millennial Park commonly known as The Bean,
I am having trouble with picking the perfect name though and once again must ask for your help. Please take a moment to answer my poll.
A family watching the sunset over Cancún in the province of Quinatara Roo, Mexico. Every night is a little different on the blue docks of of the lagoon where people congregate to eat, drink and watch the light show. They are on an overhead walkway and the shot is taken from a bridge below.
It looks like these two are dancing on the bridge of their ship as the sun sets over Cancún in the province of Quinatara Roo, Mexico. Every night is a little different on the blue docks of of the lagoon where people congregate to eat, drink and watch the light show.
Unfortunately we did not make it to the museum to see the 57th Carnegie International Exhibit until yesterday. It really needs to be seen more than once.
The use of video and music in this exhibition is truly amazing. There is one 8 minute video in which each scene was painted by hand. And another that has videos of varying lengths for over three hours. Just a few days left so go if you are able it will not be disappointing. It’s at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Oakland.
I like images that are not always what they first appear to be. It looks as if this family is upset because the fountain was spitting at them. Of course that is not the case. I am sure it is also not called The Spitting Fountain of Munich
I promised myself that this year I was going to photograph the signs and murals around Pittsburgh. Some are faded reminders of old businesses but some are distinct identification of Pittsburgh neighborhoods.
This one from The Strip District is one of the best and most famous.
