Almost Christmas Lights

Today's email brought the latest email update from the New York Institute of Photography.  This latest monthly newletter has a great article on taking photos of Christmas lights.  They could have sent this a few weeks earlier, but it's great info and the lights will be around for a while longer.

Here's a shot of some Christmas lights.  No, actually it's a shot of the reflection of some Christmas lights.  There aren't actually any trees in this lobby.

Ellipsis Photo Shoot: People and Places

After weeks of procrastination and other obstacles, I'm finally participating in another Ellipsis Photo Shoot. This week Carly wants to see crowds...

Let's have a little fun this week, by getting lost in a crowd! Grab your cameras and show me PEOPLE AND PLACES! Anywhere you see a people will do. Parks. Malls. Church. Concerts. Art Galleries. Museums. You get the idea. Photographing a crowd is be good, but it can be a crowd of as few as 2. And yes, archived photos are fine, but, as always, I would enjoy seeing something brand new as well! Also, please tell us a little about the place you found the people for your photographs.
I haven't been in very many crowds lately so I'm turning to the archives.  Maybe these pictures from last June will warm you up a little bit.  Anytime during the summer months you can find a crowd at Coolidge Park in downtown Chattanooga at the north end of the Walnut Street Bridge.  The biggest crowd is always around the fountain.  Just walk right up and water shoots out all around you; it's a great way to stay cool...
