Photo Challenge #50 / Black and White

20180819ma_4789“Bump, Bump, Bump” / Theme: Black and White

A little about this photo…

This shot was inspired by A.A. Milne. “Here is Edward Bear coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump, on the back of his head, behind Christopher Robin. It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming downstairs, but sometimes he feels that there really is another way… if only he could stop bumping for a moment and think of it!”

“Fireside Chat” / Theme: Warmth

A little about this photo…

I saw this amazing fireplace in the lobby of a store. I just happened to have my camera with me, so I took a snap. I’ve been wanting to get a fireplace for my Warmth prompt, and it turns out that this is that photo. 🙂

Photo Challenge #48 / Light

20180709ma_3869“Grampa’s Lamp” / Theme: Light

A little about this photo…

I love this light! It hangs in my grandmother’s home. My grandfather (apparently) put it together from a kit way-back-when. I love the pattern on the ceiling. And I like how you can just make out the photo in the background. (My grandmother and her sister when they were kids in their matching dresses and their bobbed hair! Grama’s the one on the right.)

Photo Challenge #47 / Sun Flare

“Nautical Starburst” / Theme: Sun Flare

A little about this photo…

On the shores of Lake Erie…. a little bit of sun flare brings this composition together. This is one of my favourite tricks when I have to shoot at noon or in the middle of the day. I love creating a star burst and getting that sun flare!

Photo Challenge #46 / Sunset

“Lighthouse at Magic Hour” / Theme: Sunset

A little about this photo…

On the shores of Lake Ontario…. this lighthouse is a favourite subject of mine. But I rather like how the colours and clouds came together for this shot. I’ll be the first to point out that it’s not the most stunning sunset shot I’ve ever seen. But I do like muted colours, so I guess that’s why I picked this photo.

P.S. Some lighthouses are tall and imposing. This one’s rather cute, don’t you think?

Photo Challenge #44 / Look Up

20180928ma_5331“Starry Sky” / Theme: Look Up

A little about this photo…

This is the Great Hall, located in Queens, NY. It was constructed for the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair. Housed in the Hall of Science, its theme was Rendezvous in Space… hence the blue glass that makes up the walls of this giant room. And it really is a giant room (something you can’t quite grasp from the photo). During the World’s Fair, the exhibit featured Frank Capra’s final film projected onto a suspended screen. Apparently, when the film ended, two space modules performed a docking maneuver overhead!

I have two photos and I couldn’t decide which one I liked better. So I decided to put the second one below…

Photo Challenge #42 / Transportation

20180926ma_5009“Coming in for a Landing” / Theme: Transportation

A little about this photo…

That’s the Manhattan skyline, framed by the trees. This shot was taken from Queens, near LaGuardia Airport. And yes, that’s an airplane coming in for a landing. (I just love how the tail of the plane just peeking out from the leaves of the trees!)

Photo Challenge #41 / Symmetry

20180927ma_5024“Brooklyn Bridge” / Theme: Symmetry

A little about this photo…

I absolutely LOVE the the Brooklyn Bridge and it’s definitely on my list of recommended sites for anybody going to New York City. I don’t often get to come here when I get into the City, but we had a day to dedicate to a bit of a history tour of Lower Manhattan. And this just happened to be our first stop. (I have two similar photos. One with the street lamp and a different angle without the lamp. The little rebel in me decided to go with this one, even though it technically goes against the definition of symmetry!)

Photo Challenge #40 / City

20180927ma_5145“It’s 1783 in New York City” / Theme: City

A little about this photo…

This is the Fraunces Tavern in the heart of Lower Manhattan, and it’s not too far from Wall Street and the site of the World Trade Center. Back in 1783, the Revolutionary War had just ended. General George Washington chose this location to bid farewell to the officers of the Continental Army. (Note: This is also not far from the location where Washington would later be sworn into office as the first president of the United States (1789). It wouldn’t be until 1801 that the capital city would be Washington D.C.)

This is not the building you usually picture when you think of New York City. But I think that’s partly why I chose it for the City prompt. I love how this building exists next to all the modern skyscrapers.
