Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale…

Prompt: Have some fun with perspective and show just how big, or little, the world can seem.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This was taken driving over the Tappan Zee Bridge between New Jersey and New York last week.  The cars and bus look so small compared to the scale of the bridge.

I’ve also enjoyed the pedestrian walkway at Walkway Over The Hudson in Poughkeepsie, New York, which is the world’s longest elevated pedestrian bridge.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Layered…

Share a layered image of your own. The topic is wide open, as long as you focus on the interplay of depth, density, and texture, you can keep your interpretation as literal or as figurative as you wish.

Thomas Edison’s library in West Orange, New Jersey.  I love the idea of a bed in the corner.

High Point monument in the northwestern corner of New Jersey where NJ/PA/NY meet.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Shiny…

What is guaranteed to distract you? What is your “Ooh, shiny!”?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I didn’t know what to do for ‘Shiny’ and then today my daughter and I took a ride to Jersey City, NJ to have coffee and enjoy the view.  Talk about shiny.  The shiny glass buildings reflecting the sky and other buildings, definitely shiny.
