Three Architectures

Some years ago I saw a theme on some social medium to try photographing three different types of architecture in the same photo, so I thought I'd try that. It turns out there are a lot of possibilities in Manhattan (as opposed to the small town I grew up in...)

I snapped this one in March of 2013. In keeping with the theme of "famous buildings" the one that's on the very left of the photo is the Empire State Building. Just not the top portion that's instantly recognizable.

3 Jan 2018

During a cold spell (a few degrees below freezing), the plant Verbesinia virginica (common name: Frostweed) in my backyard supported delicate frost flowers (water exuding from the split stem of the plant which freezes upon contact with the cold air) creating many interesting forms. This was a photographer's nightmare as there were hundreds of beautiful "flowers" to photograph.

    \$\begingroup\$ I haven't been back to photography much recently, except to come and check on the hall of fame. I'm sure I've said it before, but every time I'm blown away by the quality and diversity and downright awesomeness of your weekly photos! \$\endgroup\$
