I am SO beyond behind with my photographs, and as we head into my very favorite season, I am still looking through/sorting/editing, photographs taken way back in the spring!
Oh well, I guess the important thing is the fact that I am taking the photographs.
Anyway, it is very possible that for quite some time, you may be seeing things here that are completely out of character seasonally, and a lot will never get posted, as I am just trying to choose “highlights.”
This is definitely a highlight. Last month, I had the privilege of attending an exhibition and talk, given by my very favorite photographer, Steve McCurry.
If you are not familiar with his name, I am sure that you have seen his work, in particular, the iconic Afghan Girl image.
Truly there are not enough superlatives to describe the afternoon and evening. It is one thing to see photographs in a book, it is quite another to see one image occupy an entire wall in an art gallery, and then to listen to Mr. McCurry discuss the stories behind the images.
Photography was not allowed within the gallery, however, I was able to get many during the discussion.
Except for cropping, I did not edit any of them. I wanted them to reflect exactly what I saw at the time. Unfortunately, it means that quite a few photographs include the shoulder of the lady in the seat in front of me, but it was either that or sitting on the floor in the aisle. Retrospectively, I should have opted for the aisle! 🙂
For the sake of not “photobombing,” (too much, anyway!) I set a limit at 6. One (the first one, of course!), I chose. Interestingly, this one was taken with my iPhone, and is my favorite one. The remaining 5 were random selections.
Have a wonderful week!
