I went out shooting with a couple of my photography buddies and we spent the evening working on silhouettes.  I find I learn more from my fellow photographers than from any class.  And as a teacher I once had, many many years ago, famously said “How do you get to Carnegie Hall?  Practice, practice, practice”. (Actually he said by subway, but that’s a story for another day.)

This shot was taken from the Staten Island Ferry as the sun was going down behind the Statue of Liberty.  Thank you Michelle and Lourdes!

Oh to be young at the water’s edge on a beautiful summer’s day.

Happy 4th!

I see fireworks! I see the pagaent and
Pomp and parade
I hear the bells ringing out
I hear the cannons roar
I see Americans – all Americans
Free forever more.
John Adams, 1776 the Musical
