Thanks again, PD. Btw, are trees ablaze with color this week where you live? Take shots! The Northeast is a riot with color now. But I'm dissatisfied with nearly everything I've taken. I know there must be people here who live among sumptuous colored foliage. Share a shot or two! 🙂

Or even two or three hundred.

My parents took me to the 1964 World's Fair. Seeing the Unisphere (constructed by American Bridge Company, a division of U.S. Steel, from March to August 1963) always raises my spirits.

No, a few bad seeds, but lots of *people willing to be kind and help you if you have a question (for instance)...not a lot of time overall, so keep it brief.

* Yeah, some of them can be seem to be a bit gruff/rough on outside (and maybe in a hurry or focused on what they need to do in order to survive and live their own lives...lots of tourists in NYC), but they're good people...some of the best!

It's a great impression!  :D

More Queens: along the 7 train/Roosevelt Ave.

Some pics from our walks in the last week, using the point and click dog pulling on lead in the other hand camera on its "auto creativity" setting.

I particularly like the top two.  :)

I live about six miles from Flushing-Corona Park but I haven't made my way out there just yet. Worth a trip?

Oh yeah. Pick a nice weekday afternoon and explore, or take a book and pick a spot. Can't comment on the Queens Museum or Space Center (the old World's Fair Observation Tower is slated to reopen soon; check before you go). Every once in a while a big event like the Tennis Championships will bring in mad tourists buzzing about Arthur Ashe Stadium but that's mostly a summertime thing. And if you plan it right you can catch a Mets game at Citi Field across the street (to the east of the 7 stop).

I like photography. I like taking pictures of trees and landscapes mostly. Mainly black and white but I do colour too sometimes.
I like the Pictorialism / Impressionist look.
If anyone is interested here is a link to an album on flickr .... I can't see how to link to my Flickr profile.
Here's a preview...

They're nice. My compact camera does random effects and I sometimes find that monochrome has reduced distracting coloured clutter.

Indeed, someone (I can't remember who but presumably a famous photographer) once said "photograph a person in colour and you capture their clothes, photograph a person in black & white and you capture their soul". I don't agree fully with this statement but I understand what they, and you, mean.

I like the B & W tree photos as well - very atmospheric.

Exceptional!  When I was into photography I took you a pics that I was proud of but they don't match up.  I might dig them up and post them.
