Morning Adobe Photo Walk

Though I appreciate my Saturday sleep in days, I was willing to give it up today for the Adobe Photowalk with Bryan O’Neil Hughes and Tom Hogarty. If you’re thinking most photographers are male, you’re right and the photo below is accurate. It always seems a bit unbalanced in that department. That’s why I’m here, to take it over! :O)

My hubby and I woke up and walked over to Fotocare at 6th Ave and 22nd St. We met a few people and walked over to the High Line Park, a park built over concrete and old railroad tracks that opened up last year around the Fourth of July.

As we walked there, I took a few photos of anything I found interesting. I thought this sign was funny and used a fish eye lens to create the distortion and capture the building behind it.

I took a few shots of flowers in the park. The first one just caught my eye. The flowers were beautiful and pink and immediately brought a smile to my face.

This second shot I took, my hubby likes to call “A Flower in a Tornado,” because of the grass twisting viciously around this pretty flower.

We lost the group and walked back through the meatpacking district. It’s such an interesting neighborhood. Amongst high end stores and restaurants are empty areas like this with random advertisements or graffiti.

Ray took this shot above of the graffiti. I loved the way the light fell and he caught it before I noticed it, so I need to give him props for a job well done. I played with Topaz on this photo to give it a little extra edge.

Breakfast: Oatmeal with Cinnamon and Raisins. I apologize for the bad photo, but I was in a rush to have a great breakfast before a long walk.

Late Lunch: Veggie Pita with Mushroom, Cabbage, Asparagus, Greenbeans and Cheese. All of this was warmed up and toasted in the toaster oven.

Dinner: Chili, Corn and Beans with Hot-sauce.
