Amelia Island Mood

Often the mood of a scene can best be expressed in black and white.  Can you feel the drama and the stillness?

New York, New York

New York-1

It was 11:50 pm (note clock on Metropolitan Life Building) and we rushed to the entrance of the Empire State Building.  Visibility was quickly decreasing but I was hoping for a cloud break when we reached the top. This view lasted for just a few seconds.

 

Unalaska or Dutch Harbor?

Packed Up for the Night

Unalaska or Dutch Harbor, Alaska is an enigma!  I loved this rugged fishing village on the coasts of both Unalaska and Amaknak Islands, connected by a bridge called “the Bridge to the Other Side”.  The island and the town are both named Unalaska. There is a body of water called Dutch Harbor and many people refer to the town as Dutch Harbor or simply Dutch. Technically, there is no town named Dutch Harbor.  Have I confused you???

Barcelona Twilight

There’s an electricity along the  tree-lined pedestrian mall of La Rambla.  This vibrant  promenade cuts through the heart of Barcelona and is crowded until the wee hours of the morning.  ‘Looking-up’ helps to reduce the sensory overload and provides some of the more spectacular views of the city.

Tokyo Skytree

A little moody twilight to take the ‘hectic’ out of your day!

Things are’t always what they seem when reality and fantasy change places.
