Well, I just wrapped up my first online photography course, so I thought I would share my ten best images. They appear in chronological order with the original title assignments provided by #photo101. Enjoy!!
1.) NOV. 2nd: HOME
I look to the seagulls out my bedroom window to tell me what kind of day it’s going to be. In this morning shot, they are already looking toward Istanbul.
2.) NOV. 3rd: STREET
It’s a colorful neighborhood anyway, but I was lucky to stumble upon this trifecta of blue sky, red awning and yellow car in the Kustepe/Sisli neighborhood of Istanbul .
3.) NOV. 4th: WATER
Leaving Kadikoy on my commute from the island, the sun was shining, and this coquettish boat was flirting with me.
4.) NOV. 9th: CONNECT
This chain elegantly protects passengers from the Marmara.
5.) NOV. 11th: THE NATURAL WORLD
I thought I might have to give up on getting my “natural world” shot as it was dark when I got out of class, but a cut through Gezi Park afforded this view of fall leaves in a sleepy fountain.
6.) NOV. 14th: PLAYING WITH LIGHT
One of my seagulls again, middle photo of “Playing with Light” assignment, 11:00ish Saturday.
7.), 8.): NOV. 18th: MOMENT
The moment this ferry worker sat down for a rest, island lights having just gone on
was almost too much for me: cobalt-blue sky, bright orange pixie lights.
9.) NOV. 24th: GLASS
Looking out the window of my friend’s flat in Moscow just days before the first big snowfall of the winter.
10.) NOV. 27th: TRIUMPH
Old friends, new friends (see reflection in wine opener), framboise macaroons, and finally getting to see Paris: indeed, a lot for which to be thankful. Cheers, #photo101!
