Tuesday afternoon, I got this "brilliant" idea, of taking a picture of mums in the dark. So, after bible study, I went home, and took the pot of mums into the front yard, and set my camera on my tripod, and started shooting away.
We just got back from Carnegie Hall. For those of you who don't know anything about the hall, it was founded and sponsored by Andrew Carnegie, the famous millionaire and philanthropist. It was built in Manhattan, New York, opening its doors in 1891. It has since become the most famous concert hall in America, regularly hosting the most prestigious international Classical musicians. Anyway, I'm a rather devoted Classical fan, and of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra in particular. As some may gather from their name, the orchestra in based in Berlin, Germany, and has a glittering history of success, being widely recognized as the world's greatest orchestra. I heard them at Carnegie Hall back in the winter of 2012, when I got a pair of tickets as a gift. It was such a spell-binding experience that I determined I'd go see them again. They didn't come back to New York until this October, when they opened the season with a series of concerts. I wanted to go badly, but wanted to find some friends who'd be game to go with me. The candidates would have to be willing to spend a little bit, willing to sit through a two hour concert, and put up with atrocious me. Enter Jordan and Josiah Slabaugh, who were all into it. So I went ahead and bought the tickets, and we started making plans.
We wanted to have the full experience, so we decided we would drive to Trenton and take the train the rest of the way, and we were going to be sure to eat out.
time for another Photography Challenge, and this one comes to you
starting today... I know, its kind of late to be asking others to
join...but I guess its better late then never! And the way this
works. Each week day for the month of October, you take a picture of
something on the list. You can only use each item one time. At the
end of the month, you should have at least one picture of each thing
on the list.
And here's the list.
1. Something yellow
Outside my window
Something that makes you happy
I'm thankful for
Your pick (as in whatever you want!)
20. A Photo at the "Golden Hour" (ask me if your not sure what that is)
Someone else taking a Picture
23. Something that says Fall to you
Remember, you don't necessarily need to do this in order. And if you miss a day, don't worry, its more about having fun, and learning more about photography then following the list...
Looking forward to this, and can't wait to see what you all come up with!
