I’m in the middle of writing two final papers at the moment, so forgive the brevity.
I’ve always been fascinated by reflections, so I had no lack of photos for this week’s photo challenge. I decided to use some I took a while ago at Lincoln Center. I love the reflections coupled with the high contrast of the dark and light. Continue reading “Reflection: WPC”
I admit I didn’t march in the Women’s March. I had a lot of homework and I’m not particularly fond of crowds or being up at 7 am on a freezing winter weekend. But I couldn’t resist heading to the March for Science. Not only was it being held at a more civilized hour and in my neighborhood, I’m a scientist (alright a political scientist–but my field employs the scientific method and depends on government grants too!)
I’m so glad I went. Continue reading “Earth Day and the March for Science: WPC”
Cee’s Black and White Photography Challenge has been alphabet themed recently. At some point I’ll have to catch up–but here I am, starting at I and J.
I is for icing.
J is for Johnny jump ups.
They’re both dense! *crickets chirping*
I was actually planning on taking this week’s challenge literally, just as I’ve done the last couple weeks (with “green” and “atop“). I like the idea of working through different elements of photographic composition–color and perspective, respectively, and now texture. Fun!
Dense bed of lilies
Densely packed twinkle lights
Densely planted garden
Densely packed lilac blossoms
But as I was sitting doing one of my readings this week, I couldn’t help but interpret “dense” as “(of a text) hard to understand because of complexity of ideas.” I’d already selected and edited my “dense” as in “having the constituent parts crowded closely together” photos. So they’re here too!
It’s easy being green, but it’s not easy to narrow down my green photos for this week’s photo challenge.
I’ve got green flowers. Continue reading “Green: WPC”
Oh my goodness, I haven’t posted since February! I’d love to have a good excuse, but I don’t. Sure, I’ve been busy with school and work. But I’m not much busier than I was in February. Regardless, I’m back now and I’m jumping in with the latest Weekly Photo Challenge.

This week’s photo challenge was to photograph things that are a good match. I wasn’t terribly inspired. In fairness, that might be because I’m insanely busy with school and work at the moment and not because the topic wasn’t inspirational. Either way, I probably wasn’t going to do the challenge. Continue reading “The World Famous Cronut: WPC”
Today’s a two-fer! The Daily Post weekly photo challenge this week was to capture something that’s “against the odds.” I happened to ride the Second Ave Subway the day after the challenge was posted and I knew I had to go back with my camera and get some photos, because if anything says “against the odds” it’s the Second Ave Subway.

Oh dear, I missed last week’s challenges. I went away for the holiday weekend and it threw off my whole schedule. Anyway, I’m back!
I’m still experimenting with selective colorization in my black and white photos (my first attempt was reasonably successful). I’ve downloaded GIMP and have been slowly learning it over the last month. Continue reading “MTA at Columbus Circle: CB&W”
