New York 2016

The Oculus PATH Station By Ground Zero

The Oculus PATH Station By Ground Zero

I was in New York for a few days in late September.  As usual I walked for miles, taking pictures of newer buildings, going to the excellent 9/11 Memorial and Museum and crossing the Brooklyn Bridge at sunset. I also attended the opening night of the Metropolitan Opera, seeing Tristan und Isolde – a great evening! 

Here are some images for your enjoyment.  Come this way …

Lerwick, Shetland

I visited Lerwick, Shetland in October 2015. The weather, like all places beside the North Sea, was changeable! I have used black and white for these pictures, to convey the cold bleakness that Lerwick often experiences.

I will be posting more pictures from my trip to beautiful Shetland, once I have processed them.

Chinatown Umbrellas – Photohaus Exhibition 2014

This is the second image chosen by Photohaus for exhibition in June 2014.  I shot this on 13-Feb-2010 which was both Chinese New Year and also the opening day of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics.  It was a glorious day in Vancouver – not something we can count on at that time of year – and the whole city was abuzz with excitement.  We went into town on the Skytrain and wandered around the Olympic venues and down into China Town.

These umbrellas – part of some decor for a private party – caught my eye.  It is a happy image for me.
