Monochrome Weekend and Window Views

I'd like to share with you a photograph which I've featured before on possibly both Monochrome Weekend (formerly Monochrome Monday) and Window Views. This time, however, there is a little twist. The photograph below was chosen for the April cover of a trade journal published by RCI, 
an international association of professional consultants, architects, and engineers.
Here is the original photo, taken by me, looking out from a window at MoMA out toward the many windows of New York City.

Good week everyone!

  6. It's exciting. The publications director was doing a search for photos and came upon my photo on a blog, contacted me and the rest is my fifteen minutes of fame, as Andy Warhol said!

    Thanks guys! And a special thanks to my daughter SG2 who signed as U, for making her mom feel good by leaving a comment. I know how busy you are, Sweet!

  10. Rune: if you visit no other art museum in NYC, make it a point to visit MoMA. It is an extraordinary experience. Five floors (I think) of some of the world's best modern art. Starry Night by Van Gogh is a permanent piece, though it was not there the last time I visited. Right around the corner from where I took this photo, is one of Matisse's most famous painting: that large canvas of the pinkish people holding hands and dancing. Amazing.

    Dianne: nah. This was a fluky piece of good luck. Though it did make me feel ten feet tall! Thing is, how does one do it again and again and again? You have to be really good and you have to market yourself and I strike out on both counts!

    Susan: that is the sweetest thing anyone has ever said to me online. And knowing you these few years through blogging, I can tell you mean it. Thank you, my dear friend.

  12. I can understand why your photo was chosen for the mag cover -- it's outstanding.

    Thanks for your thoughtful comments on my blog. I use B&W film because I have top quality film equipment and am able to shoot film for less than $3/roll total cost. I develop the film myself and scanning and editing only takes about an hour or two for each roll.

    My budget says no way to high end digital.

  16. Wow! Pagan Sphinx what a photo! They were so smart to choose it! Congratulations, I hope they paid you the big bucks! :)

  17. Well, seeing their theme, I can see why they chose this brilliant photo. It's a beautiful composition AND it has lovely play on the idea of windows, as well.

    Black and white was an inspired decision, as well. Color would distract.
