SUNDAY POST: Morning

Jake’s Sunday Post: Morning can be interpreted as follows says Jake:

Morning may also be used in a strictly personal sense, to refer to the period immediately following waking up, irrespective of the current time of day. In this sense, morning encompasses the prerequisites for full productivity and life in public often breakfast, dressing, etc. The boundaries of such morning periods are by necessity idiosyncratic, but they are typically considered to have ended on reaching a state of full readiness for the day’s productive activity. The word morning originally referred to the sunrise but today usually refers to the period of time between 5:00 AM and 9:00 AM. Morning precedes afternoon, evening and night in the sequence of a day.

Here is my take on the theme:  One recent morning, I was walking down a street with tall buildings and noticed this little alcove and was struck by the use of space in a city of concrete and steel.  Someone had not only converted this into a green space but provided seating to people who could sit down and enjoy themselves with a newspaper and a bite, and on this morning someone was doing just that.  I wondered if this was his hidden secret spot in this massive city or was he just passing by like me and stopped to catch up on the day’s news.

SUNDAY POST: Reflection

Jake’s challenge Reflection has some cool pictures and entries, do check it out.  Here is my entry, and according to Jake, this is specular reflection…..Specular reflection is a mirror-like reflection of light from a surface, in which light from a single incoming direction is reflected into a single outgoing direction.

SUNDAY POST: From a Distance

Jake Sprinter’s SUNDAY POST this week is From a Distance.  Jake says “There will be very little detail visible in the shot, as it is meant to give a general impression rather than specific information.” So, here is my take on the theme.

The first picture shows the Hudson River seen from the New York side with New Jersey on the other side and George Washington Bridge looming in the distance. The second one is another view of the Hudson and the last picture is close to my house in Northern Manhattan.

SUNDAY POST: Black & White

This week the theme at Jake Sprinter’s SUNDAY POST is Black & White. It is Saturday morning in New York, and the weekend is off to a rainy start and the weather outside is gloomy, with shades of gray and close to black and white.  Jake says: “Black and white as a description may be considered something of a misnomer, in that the images are not ordinarily starkly contrasted black and white, but combine black and white in a continuum producing a range of shades of gray.”

I browsed through my pictures and managed to find a few pictures for the challenge, edited some of them, but surprisingly, I have one picture that is Black and White and I did not edit it at all.  If you have visited my blog in recent months you have already met Georgie, my crazy, funny, and adorable cat. He is black and white all over and this picture was taken on a snowy morning when he was sitting by the window against a gray wall….take a look…this is one of my favorite pictures and fits Jake’s description above.

SUNDAY POST: Close-up

Close-ups display the most detail says Jake, in his Sunday Post: Close-up.  Here is a close-up of my lunch – a simple Tomato Open-Face Sandwich…..it was delicious!
