I absolutely love the activity and energy of big cities and Chicago is one of the best.
Al, I and Sam Wang got together and wandered around the old Pendleton Oil Mill and Sam found a great leaf in early fall color which he encouraged me to photograph, which I did. The first image is my original interpretation of the leaf. The second is Sam’s and the third is my slight reinterpretation of Sam’s interpretation. It is great fun shooting with friends.
Street celebrations are always colorful and fun to attend.
Many years ago we took a trip out West and discovered a great place for the treat of ice cream. I do not remember where or what the the name of the shop was but the important part is captured.
This blog has a few more images than I usually do at one time but I think that they present the activity and humanity of the museum. The first image, for me is a kind of classic because it raises the sense of common objects to something more personal and interesting (for me). I also like to look at pictures (paintings), people and people looking at paintings. What great fun!
I love just hanging around someplace on the Met’s front steps and watch the world go by. The buildings and the steps provide a perfect stage.
Alice and I recently went to NYC for a week and the next few blog s will be from that trip, starting with our airport, GSP. in Greenville, SC. Airports are not my favorite place to sit around in and do nothing, so I take photographs of what folks do in their “spare ti,e”. I enjoy the images of people reading, resting or sewing. The wheelchairs seem to have their own conversation going.
The Greenville Center for Creative Arts is a great place to view and create art and I highly recommend a visit there.
