I can’t think of anything better than bare feet, a cup of coffee and the New York times.
A jilted lover? Regretting a fight with her best friend? Recently fired from a job she liked very much? Or monochromatic pixels on a computer screen.
Black and white images can be SO powerful! This subway portrait was taken with My iPhone and edited in the amazingly powerful app Snapseed.
This young lady was photographed through a diner widow. Lost in thought with her book and a bottle of water, she seems totally unaware of her surroundings or the guy with a camera taking her picture.
In keeping with my current emphasis on still images, this one was taken inside a wonderful Moroccan shop in Petaluma, California called “bay-ti”. It consists of nothing but an antique bowl and some dried vegetation. I think their combination is quite beautiful.
During the day a lot of people can be found on this stone bench. It’s a comfortable place to sit. However, the distressing thing is that those who find their way here are often pretty much down on their luck. This fellow though seems more lost in thought. Further down the way is the rougher crowd.
