These are a few of the gazillion pictures I took in Noo Yoik a few years ago (I was asked by a friend for a picture of the Empire State Building and looked through the folder).

Times Square:

Not content with just the pictures I had a fiddle with a photo editor. Results:

nyuse1 thick edge_edited.jpg


nyuse2 with thik edge.jpg


I think I prefer the edited versions. The originals are a bit dull but the edits have a life of their own.
 
And here is the picture of the Empire State Building. Completely unedited apart from cropping it to get the main bit down to size. I was sat on a bench having a fag (bloody non-smoking hotel), looked up and saw this:

It was more impressive in real life but you had to be there maaan.
 
I am also a most proficient artist and made a few sketches of NY to go with the pictures.

My charcoal sketch of the Chrysler Building:

My pencil and crayon drawing of the NY skyline (sketched while hovering above the Hudson River in my private helicopter):
skyline pencil.jpg

(Hmmm. That one doesn't really show up very well when scaled down. It looks OK big).

Even so you'd think they'd press the pattern along the path rather than across it, ffs.
Now you mention it, you are quite right. I knew there was 'something' nagging away. But there is a saying round these parts: TiT, this is Thailand.

First sweet pea in my new garden. It's small, on a short stem, but smells divine.

Last Friday at Edlington Pit Wood.
As the name suggests it was a filthy stinking coal mine until a few years ago. Now a woodland trust and nature trail and only several hundred metres from home.Thanks Maggie. Ducks and awaits incoming from our labour supporter.

Experiment time, Sony Nex-3 with an old Nikon 70/300 G lens mounted on a £5 Flebay adaptor - slight problem, no way to set the F-stop correctly with that lens, so its a case of trial and error using the open and close ring on the adaptor
