More Weekend Photos

As I continue to learn how to use this new camera, I'll continue to post regular examples of the results. This batch includes: the sign from a derelict hotel near the waterfront, near Christopher Street (shot in sepia); a doorway on a historic West Village home; a 19th century stable, in the Village, converted to apartments; and an impromptu meeting of pigeons at the corner of Bleecker and 10th Streets. These aren't anything special, just the results of playing with exposures and settings. Funny, when I'm carrying around a digital camera, I don't really think like an "art photographer" in the way that I do when carrying around a TLR loaded with black and white film. Perhaps that will change with time.

Oh, BrianC, it's not the camera, it's the eye of the person holding the camera that makes the photograph artistic. You have the eye. You can't help it. Even if you were shooting a $9.95 Instamatic with film that had grain as big as beach sand, your shots would look artistic.

I agree, Boocat. And Brian, I see a couple of awesome watercolor subjects here for you. Most assuredly the Hotel sign and probably the last.
My hubby is reading The Golden Compass. You'll have to share your impressions with us after.
