So, I got to visit New York city this past week. Wow, it’s a very different place from where I live. I’ll expound more later, but for now, I’ll just say Wow! Out of the noise and apparent chaos we found ourselves in Central Park. It’s a huge and amazingly quiet and peaceful place in the middle of New York, Manhattan to be specific. The anxiety and craziness of the city seemed to fade away behind us, and I was glad! :)
More from Las Vegas. The sky there is just crazy. I didn’t do much to the sky in Photoshop and I wasn’t using a polarizer either.
This is the Casino/Hotel where the WinConnections conference was held that I attended a couple of weeks ago in Las Vegas. Pretty cool place one of my favorite buildings there. Shot with my new 10-20 Sigma lens, which I’m liking alot! I thought about fixing the distortion, but I like it this way. :)
One of the many really nice hotel/casinos here in Vegas. I’m going to guess by the grandeur and splendor of the casinos and other attractions that most people must lose a lot of money here. I still haven’t tried my hand at the gambling, mostly because as I walk through the casinos it doesn’t seem like most people are having very much fun. The ones that look like they are having fun are drunk and probably don’t realize the money they are losing. Not that everyone here loses money, but you don’t walk along and see lots of people hitting the jackpot. I guess it’s like any other pastime that can get out of hand quickly.
Nothin special…just playing with a 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC Sigma lens. I’m heading to Las Vegas this weekend and wanted a lens that would give some good wide shots. We plan on heading to the Grand Canyon and thought this lens would come in handy around that area. I’m digging it so far. Check back next week for some shots from Vegas. My hope is to find some really cool stuff around that area.
I actually picked up my camera and took some shots this weekend…it felt good.
Black and White or color?
Also, are these HDR type shots interesting or trite?
I normally try and put up a new shot every day, but I was out of town and then got stuck in the Chicago Ohare airport forever the other day so I’m going to leave this one up for a couple of days!
This still seems off kilter, but I tried and tried and nothing seemed to be straight. So I gave up. :)
