Planting Fields Arboretum B and W

It was such a hot day on Saturday at the Planting Fields Arboretum in Long Island, NY that it subdued my mood. I came with a group of photgraphers and everyone split up, so I spent most of the day alone. I processed these to show how I felt.

For those who like to know. I took the image from Lightroom to Photoshop, applied a black and white filter or converted it to black and white using onOne Effects, then added a brown gradient map with blue in the mid tones in Photoshop. For the lavender and roses I masked out the flowers on an additional violet or pink gradient map.

Conception Door

My husband, Marc Felix, was conceived in an apartment in this building in 1945. Soon after that his family moved to Horatio Street.

I included a hidden door for fun.

Governors Island Structures

This is the 4th post of 6 of posts of Governors Island #OPTIC2019. The old Battery Maritime Building has lovely elaborate details and the colors are fun.

Governors Island B&W

Some of the photographs I took during the #OPTC2019 trip to Governors Island worked best in black and white to show off the details I focussed on.

Libety and Ellis

The B&H cruise sailed out into the Upper New York Bay out to the Stature of Liberty.

The 82-foot schooner, Shearwater, was hand built in 1929 from native hardwoods. It is a New York City floating designated landmark.
