I saw Mad Max: Fury Road at my favorite theater. So I did what I did for Age of Ultron. I went to an afternoon show, so that when I left the theater the late afternoon sun would just be starting to make the colors pop. But this time I brought my whole kit with me because last time I only brought out one lens and found myself wanting.
Also this time around I walked downtown from Lincoln to Columbus past Julliard and Lincoln Center and past my old college. And I took a lot of pictures. These are twenty of my favorites, after I show you this pic of bananas and strawberries (my favorite fruit)
To the photos…
The clouds were beautiful today.
The blue sky and light clouds gave everything a bluish hue.
This one makes the buildings look like blank sheets of music. Or just rest after rest after rest after rest… silence notated. I loved the clouds.
But I didn’t spend the entire after noon staring at the sky.
I stared at this dude. I like these two…
because it’s like I tilted it and then that happened.
Maybe it’s just me. I love the broken reflections on buildings.
I called this one Don’t Block (me).
The reflection of the low sun off the buildings.
This one shows the low clouds and the sun.
I don’t know why I like this pic, but I do. Maybe it’s the nostalgia.
There are bunches of students everywhere in this area. Dancers, Artists. All over the place. They needed to put a sign. It’s easy to get run over by them. They’re scary.
Columbus Circle made me want a fish-eye lens to catch all the magic.
While Lincoln Square screamed for a zoom lens to people watch.
Each letter gets its own spotlight.
But that blue sky kept calling my name. I love these clouds. It’s almost like the wormhole opening up on DS9. (sorry non-nerds)
Right side up.
Check out Christopher’s bad-ass curved short sword. (yes I know. A lot of blood on that sword. If it were my choice this would be Harriet Tubman Circle)
It took me a while to get everyone to pose correctly for this one. But you’d be surprised how long New Yorkers will hold completely still for a complete stranger. (I’m kidding of course. New Yorkers are mean. Every single person in this picture will stab you)
But those feathered clouds really made my day.
I took sooo many pictures of the clouds.
So, the movie was good. I had a nice walk. Took some pictures that I actually liked.
What a lovely day.
Until next time,
