Monochrome Mondays

Hello and welcome back for the first time in about a month to Monochrome Mondays. It is also the first new post of 2018 so without further adieu, here we go!

Big Allis, Queens

As I write, New York City and much of the east coast of the U.S. has been in deep Arctic freeze. Brutally cold temperatures and wind chills. Winter still has a long way to go of course, but I sincerely hope we do not get any deep freezes that last as long as this one has! Partly because it has kept me from wanting to head off walking around taking new photos. Yesterday though I did a bit of writing in a coffee shop and took my camera along. On Saturday we were doing some errands when my wife pointed out the smoke belching out of the nearby power plant known as ‘Big Allis’ not far from our apartment. I did not have my camera, but I took a shot with my phone of the smoke set against the blue chilled sky. Yesterday I saw the same sight (the smoke stacks dominate our neighborhood and can be seen from practically any angle ) but instinctively switched the camera over to monochrome to see what that might look like. Now, I am not thrilled  in environmental terms that those smoke stacks are doing that of course, but there is no denying that it made for an interesting monochrome photo.

Monochrome Mondays

Well here we are again-another Monday, another Monochrome Photo to share with you all. On Saturday here in New York City we got a little dusting of snow. I decided to walk to a nearby park while the snow was falling to get a few shots, including this one. The park is on the waterfront and at one point lies the remains of what must have been an old pier deteriorating away. I like how the shot came out with a slight ‘blur’ effect which was down to having to work quickly to get the shot with snow blowing in my face. Though it may look like it has been altered, this photo is 100% as I took it, with no editing. Join me again next week for another Monochrome Mondays and stay tuned for some of my regular music and photography posts. And do please follow me at the sites listed below and I will return the favor!
