One morning during nXnw2014, when re returned to our rented home on Mt. Desert Island in Acadia, and saw this group of turkeys moving through the woods nearby.  A few of us tracked them and tried to get shots through the trees.  Suddenly they emerged from the trees and lucky me, I was the only one on the road to catch them as they crossed.

It turns out there are many names for a group of turkeys, which are most commonly called either a “rafter” or, yes, a “gang.”

Wow; I have not been exceedingly busy this week but I guess I have been distracted as I haven’t posted since Monday, and this has been mostly ready to go all week.  Let me just get this up as is before I forget again.

This is somewhere in or between the West Village and the Meatpacking District a few months ago. It’s a film shot, that I  manipulated in one very digital fashion, which was to change the perspective to make it look as if I shot from straight across from a spot 2-3 stories above ground, even though I actually took this from street level. Otherwise this is pretty much as the film looks.

    Correcting the verticals has added strength to the image, in my opinion. I love those windows and all the subtle variations between them all.ReplyCancel

This is a quiet spot on an early morning in October, but I was standing on a nice sandy beach so I think it gets a bit more crowded in summer. I know this is Seal Harbor, and I’m pretty sure that the large body of land in the distance is Little Cranberry Island. We stopped here after shooting at dawn near Otter Cliffs and a few other stops, including the stables that were the subject of Friday’s post.

Wildwood Stables is located in Acadia National Park and offers carriage rides during the warmer months of the year.  The nXnw2014 crew stopped by while driving the Park’s Loop Road after a dawn excursion near Otter Cliffs, while returning to Bar Harbor for breakfast. It’s a pretty setting, and among other things I was drawn to this close view of the porch to the offives and main barn of the stables.

Happy Halloween!

I put this exact photo up on the blog 16 months ago, except in color. I never much considered converting it to back and white until a few weeks ago, when I took part in the 5 Day Black and White Photo challenge that has been floating around Facebook, G+ and other social networks the past couple of months.  It’s a simple challenge in which you just have to post a black and white image 5 days in a row on whatever social platform you were named in. I was nominated on Facebook by my photo friend Jay Taylor,

There were few rules or restrictions to the challenge: you could post new photos, old ones, or reworked ones. On the third day I wanted to take an old color image of mine and convert it to black and white and browsing through my catalog I decided on this one. The result exceeded my expectations.
