Monochromia: Subway Surfing

20161015_093540-5

It’s hard to believe that it has been 5 weeks since that incredible weekend in NYC.  The past month has been a blur!

When Joe, Stacy, Terry, and I were taking the subway to meet up with Patti and Robyn, I had fun trying to stay upright without holding onto anything as the train sped underneath the streets of the city.  I also posted myself right in the window to grab this shot.

Such fabulous memories of a great time.

(and, just FYI, I did manage to stay upright … although I’m not sayin’ it was pretty 🙂 )

Monochromia Connections

As you view this Black & White  image, I am on the train to NYC to meet up with some of the photographers who contribute to Monochromia!

We all know the gifts of WP blogging, and I’ve been tremendously blessed to have made friends the world over.

In just a few short hours, I’ll be gathering with photographers that I met years ago through WordPress.  Since then those photographers have become friends and I cannot wait to them all in person.

Stay tuned for photos!

Travel: Trains and Bikes

It’s the beginning of the weekend, and while there is still one more day of work, I’m anticipating a weekend on the motorcycle.  YAY!

The images you see here are my recent contributions to Monochromia.

If you haven’t visited Monochromia yet, please do! Photographers from around the world contribute some incredible B&W images to this blog, and several of those photographers, including me, will be meeting in NYC in October.

How cool is that?

My travels will prevent me from visiting each of you until next week.  Sending peaceful thoughts during tumultuous times.

What do you think?

My post for Monochromia this week.

It was a bright, sunshiney day, but tell me, do you think it was cold or warm?  This image could go either way, right?

Even after all this time, I find myself thinking about how lucky I am to be hanging out, virtually anyway, with the rest of the Monochromia photographers.  I mean, seriously, I still need to learn how to adjust shutter speed.

I’m just going to sit here in the soft morning light, enjoy my cup of coffee, and ponder my good fortune.
