Photo of the Day…Decorated doorways & stoops

When I’m out and about with my camera, I ‘see’ photos everywhere. 🙂

These two pics were taken in the United States during the festive season.

The photo on the left was shot in SoHo, a neighborhood in Lower Manhattan, New York City, famous for its art galleries and trendy boutiques. The doorway, simple wreath and the ivy immediately caught my eye.

The photo on the right was taken in San Francisco. The symmetry within this shot immediately attracted me. Everything is balanced. I love the bright coloured poinsettias, the elaborate wreath and the cracks above the doorway.

Which shot is your favourite? Do you like to photograph doorways and entrances?

Photo of the day…Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco

The Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most iconic suspension bridges in the world.

Here, shrouded in fog, you can see one of the two main suspension cables.

These cables are 2.33 km long and nearly a metre in diameter.

We walked the bridge on a cold, foggy San Francisco Day.

I photographed a whole series of the bridge in sepia. It just seems to enhance the mood of the photograph…

What do you think?

Photo of the day…Eerie Alcatraz

 

Alcatraz Island sits approx 2.4km off the shore in San Francisco Bay.

On the day I visited, the rain and iconic San Francisco fog made the island barely visible from the shore.

Imagine what it must have been like for the inmates who were imprisoned here?

It is said that on a still day, the prisoners could hear music and laughter drifting across the bay from the mainland.

Absolute torture huh?

 

 

Photo of the day…Alcatraz

Alcatraz was a fascinating place. I was there on a very gloomy day which really added to the mood and feel of the prison.
I waited until everyone was out of the way to get this shot. I love the symmetry and the leading lines that draw your eye right into the photo.
