Weekly Photo Challenge: Angular

This weeks weekly photo challenge from Daily Post is Angular

“What does angular mean to you? It might mean the corner on which you live or the intersection of sea and sky at a 180 degree angle. Angular also offers a chance to shoot from an entirely new perspective: from above, below, or even from the margins of the fray. Above all, have fun!”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Signs

This weeks weekly photo challenge from Daily Post is Signs

“For this challenge, share an image of a sign: it can be a sign near your home — a comforting sight after a long journey — a sign that doubles as art, or other types of signs that hold meaning for you.”

 

NYC signs

In New York you can’t look down a street without signs of all kinds exploding in your eyes – a fact of life there that I very much enjoy. In this photograph you can see giant imagery of consumer goods and finance organisations. Below these titans of commercial activity, appearing almost shapeless and insignificant are human beings. Which of the two seems more important to you?

Location: Times Square, New York
Camera: Nikon D800, Sigma 20mm F1.8 EX DG ASP RF; 1/40, f/5.6, ISO 100

Weekly Photo Challenge: Letters

This weeks weekly photo challenge from Daily Post is Letters.

“For this week’s challenge, share a photo with letters — no matter the alphabet. As you look through your lens, think about how your image might convey something bigger: a snapshot of how we communicate with one another, even if we don’t speak the same language.”

Two years ago I visited New York for the first time.  Wow, and I mean wow!  That place blew me away and I would love to visit again in a heartbeat.  The streets, the people, the architecture and the raw energy of the place were all amazing.  You want cross cultural communication?  How about halal hotdogs in Manhattan!

One day I’ll be back baby.
