I wanted to give Lex’s dedication a proper life here on my pages as the post you land on when visiting Carmichael’s Position. It is hard to believe we were all struck with the news of our friend’s passing two weeks ago now.
In that two weeks, the rest of my world blurred a bit. Not because of accumulated tears, though there were those… but more because life’s obligations did not let up in his passing for the rest of us.
Me, after hoisting numerous Guinness's – for strength – I had to get my act together, get all my shit in one sock and then “Move On”.
Moving on for me involved my work obligations, which required my presence back in New York City, the “Center of the Universe” (their opinion… not necessarily mine!). Work was good. Fifteen meetings in 4 days is not an effort to be made by the weak or meek… Although being 10 pounds lighter and possibly five laps less around the sun might not have hurt none… I was beat by the end of the week. It’s good to be exhausted once in awhile. All of the meetings went well and were productive. I like our clients, they are good, hard working people.
In the course of my daily rounds I occasionally have opportunity to work on my passion of photography. Unfortunately, I was mostly disappointed in my efforts this time around… be it poor subject matter choice, poor composition or the occasional poor technical settings, I was not excelling at my hobby. I did however, manage to capture a couple of images I rather like, and after posting these on my Facebook pages, others have liked them as well… I am flattered and humbled by their appreciation.
The first one I took while waiting for my train’s departure from Grand Central Station. I had to have a long exposure due to the low light conditions in GST. What I captured was all of the motion of the busy transportation hub, all better exemplified by the still, motionless photographer in the middle of the bustle, trying to secure a photo of his own…
And the second image from the trip, was taken on the way home after the long week. From seat 7F of a Frontier Airlines Airbus 319, meandering along at 34,000 feet and 486kts, I looked out my window and was captivated by my view. Through an arch created by two spent thunderheads, in the setting sunlight, a cumulus cloud was highlighted in all its grandeur. It was fascinating and I had to take a crack at capturing it through the double plated window. Here’s my result.
This week following has been busy as well, always is after a trip back to NY. Plenty of life’s daily’s to keep me busy and focused. That’s a good thing… sure beats the alternative.
