I’ve been a bit to busy this week to go out and take pictures so I’m posting something from the Jay Maisel workshop I did last year in September. The last evening we were up on the roof of “the bank”. After the sun set some of us went inside to drink wine and have a nice snack. Others like me stayed up on the roof and took more photos. In the photo below, on the left, you might be able to recognize a famous photographer using his iPhone to take photos of the Empire State Building.

This evening I walked around on the ArtZuid sculpture route near my home in Amsterdam. The sculpture Translucide of Antoine Poncet reflected the light and the color of the sky beautifully. I’ve also added some more photos to the ArtZuid gallery.

I recently started to “collect” lampposts. I created a gallery on a separate page. Here are two photos I like. This is actually the same lamppost taken from different standpoints.

This afternoon I sat outside a bookstore on the Spui square in Amsterdam. It was quit cold but the sun kept me warm. Many people of many kinds walked by. I really enjoyed just watching.

This afternoon I walked around in a new office area in the south part of Amsterdam. I could have walked there for hours if it wasn’t so cold. The reflections of the light in the tall glass buildings created combined worlds: Near and far, small and large, hard and soft.

On Koya-san on the Okunoin Cemetery, which is the largest graveyard in Japan, you can find many beautiful graves and memorials. It was a rainy and foggy morning when we left from the monastery where we slept. But during our walk over the cemetery to the mausoleum of Kūkai the sun came out and made many nice light accents on the memorials.

A silhouette photo of monument Indonesia – Netherlands on the Olympiaplein in Amsterdam. I took this photo a couple of years ago and did do a lot of Photoshop work on it. I had to redo it all because I didn’t backup my photos until this drive crashed and I lost a lot of photos.

One of the entrances of the Rockefeller plaza in New York has beautiful artwork (?) on two sides. Lights shine on gold plated objects and reflect it on the wall. I’m not sure about this description, but just look at the picture…. I thought it looks like the shadow of the skyline of New York.
