Initially posted in color in April 2014, I just converted the above image into a black and white pencil sketch.
First posted in September 2012 in black and white, this Yosemite view has long been one of my favorites.
Previously in de-saturated color in December 2012, the lines and texture seem to pop better in black and white.
After seeing real rainy pics, I began playing, or should I sing, “Dancing in the rain!”?
created as artists, thinkers, doers, worshipers
A horse of a different color
And what is the shutter?
But a poor reflection,
as in a mirror ….
Welcome, Dawn of the New Year, Golden Promise!
From darkness, leap over fog and into the heavens.
“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.” Rev. 21:1 (NIV)
“For Three decades, this sculpture stood in the plaza of the World Trade Center. Entitled ‘The Sphere,’ it was conceived by artist Fritz Koenig as a symbol of world peace. It was damaged during the tragic events of September 11, 2001, but endures as an icon of hope and the indestructible spirit of Americans. The Sphere was placed here on March 11, 2002 in memory of all who lost their lives to terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center.” (From the plaque at The Sphere’s June 2002 site in Battery Park).
