Last evening, I went out on the deck hoping to get some fresh air. As soon as I stepped outside, a beautiful sunset was lighting up the sky. Quickly, I retrieved my camera and took a few photos. The light was changing very quickly and this was my best capture.
Most of us are starting to struggle with finding activities to keep us busy during our COVID-19 lockdown. I am no exception. Yesterday I was talking to one of my granddaughters about some old movies I enjoyed and King Kong came up. She had never seen it, so we talked about it for a few moments. Later, I looked on-line and found some old movie posters from the 1933 release of this film. In many ways, it was a shocking film for its time period! This gave me an idea to have some Photoshop fun to spend some time creating a fun photo. I decided to use the newest skyscraper symbol in New York, Freedom Tower, in place of the old symbol, the Empire State Building, as when the film was originally released. Here it is for your viewing pleasure. Now go on-line and view the movie. I know I will!
The Lord I my shepherd;
There is nothing I lack.
In green pastures he makes me lie down;
To still waters he leads me;
He restores my soul.
He guides me along right paths
For the sake of his name.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
Your rod and your staff comfort me.
John Lewis, Rest in Peace!
Continuing with the theme of photography near home during the Wuhan Virus Pandemic, here is a recent photo. This was shot less than a mile from my home and the goal was a type of minimalism that attempted to communicate emptiness. Did I accomplish that or was it a fail?
