Hard to get a sharp shot at night on a moving boat but got a pretty sharp shot on the Manhattan Bridge and part of lower Manhattan. Wonderful bridges in New York when you don't have to drive over them.
Whenever a shot doesn't work for me from a normal perspective, I think what it would look like with a filter. This is the Manhattan Bridge and it looked very cinematic to me. That filter didn't work, but this film noir filter did the trick. So much fun on our NYC dinner cruise with Jono and Sam.
Got to do a dinner cruise in New York City. Got some nice shots and had an excellent dinner with Jono and Sam who were also in town. Highly recommend the Bateaux Dinner Cruise to get a unique view of the city.
After a couple of miles drive along one of the worst roads I have ever driven on and an easy-ish 1.5 mile hike up Lookout Mountain in Oregon, you get this amazing view of Mount Hood. Just beautiful. Totally worth the effort.
Did a wonderful 3 mile hike with Cheryl and Michael Jr up to the top of Lookout Mountain to see Mount Hood and a number of other spectacular views of Washington and Oregon Cascade mountain tops. Very cool hike. This shot is on the way to the top and is your first view of Mt Hood on the way up.
Here is the famous Davern race car, a Buick 350 Apollo. (I think.) Ran well at the Joliet Raceway but didn't come away with the top prize. Still, looks like Joe and the team had lots of fun over race weekend.
This was my first car. I had a 1965 Ford Mustang in white with black back seats and red bucket seats in the front. This car is very close so I am guessing it might be the 1966 version? I did not have such a large console in-between the seats but maybe that is an after market add on? I met my wife, Cheryl in that car so I should not have sold it. Great car. Saw it (and lots of other Mustangs) at the auto show at Joliet Auto Speedway where the Davern car was racing last weekend. Gave Cheryl a ride home back in 1974 in that car with my cousin Jim on the way home from swim practice. (She was a swim timer). As we had others sitting in the back seat, she sat on the console. Did a lot of hard right hand turns on the way home so she would fall in my lap. Wow. Broke a lot of laws, come to think of it. But that is the car and that is how we met.
All I had for today's shot of the day was a somewhat boring shot taken on the Dan Ryan of some dramatic skies having over downtown Chicago. The picture sort of looked like a painting to me so I went with a pencil sketch filter and I get a bit of a dreamy view of an afternoon commute.
