LGBT Sculpture at Hudson

Hudson River Park – LGBT memorial designed by artist Anthony Goicolea at 12th Street and Bethune Street is a monument to the LGBT community erected to recognize those lost in the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting in June 2016, and all victims of hate, intolerance and violence. Constructed of nine modified “boulders” fabricated in bronze, some of which are bisected with a clear, laminated glass imbedded with prisms to refract rainbow patterns on the surrounding area.

I don’t usually post other people’s art work but these look so nice in the park I wanted to share them.

Optic 2017 Cruise

As part of the free Optic 2017 event held by B&H I went on the evening cruise around the tip of Manhattan. The 4-day event was fabulous—so many lectures and camera goodies to see it was overwhelming. The speakers were tops. If you want to see some of the lectures some were recorded. Thank you all at the B&H Event Space.

The weather was foggy and damp, so all my photographs were a flat gray. I added a few clouds to some of them in Photoshop.

New York harbor at night reminds me of when I returned to America in 1960 from London. I was a young teenager then. The view of the harbor and city lights was beautiful and romantic, but at the same time sad because I was so sad at  leaving my home in London.
