Snapshot: Tranquility 7




This image is my idea of tranquility. It has everything I am drawn to — great architecture, silhouettes and the last light of the day. The day I took this photo, I was surrounded by tourists taking photos of the Guggenheim and people kept telling me to move to another spot where the trees wouldn't "ruin" the photo. I kept saying thank you but I stayed where I was. This was perfect for me. That pink light, that leaf which looks like a stencil for a pattern and the simple lines of the Guggenheim.

This image popped up in my Yahoo reader this morning and I instantly clicked on your post. Truly, this is gorgeous, and I couldn't agree with you more - trees "make" the photo...
Thank you for the bit-o-beauty in my morning.

Everyone's an expert! You're just like Alison Ashley with the concrete pipe/Olive Cotton perspective...

Oh how I love Alice!!

I like it when people tell me I should shoot something a different way. Usually makes me more confident I'm getting something different & interesting!
