Taken: 30th Street Train Station, Philadelphia @ Apr 2005
I love this picture, especially the rustiness of the train tracks contrasting with the modernness of the buildings. There are also so many elements in the picture but somehow it doesn't look too crowded.

It might seem irrelavant to call this picture "Love", but I call that because it's really personal to me. :) The buildings in the background are parts of Philadelphia skyline. Philadelphia means the city of brotherly love. I live in Philadelphia, but my boyfriend lives in Hoboken, NJ. (It's right across NYC where he works.) Every weekend I take the train (shown in the picture) to see him. The very track on the left is the route where the train takes me up north...to see him whom I love so much. Yah, that's why it's called "Love". :)

      • I feel the same way. I find beauty in the most mundane things. Things I may have passed before now catch my eye and I can't resist shooting them.

        The color and graininess of this is really stunning. I also like the angle a lot.

                        Taken: Fort Lee Historic Park @ Apr 2005
                        When I saw this well, it reminded me of the movie "The Ring." I have seen only the preview, but that's enough already. Anyhow, we went to Fort Lee Historic Park this weekend. We drive by this park all the time but never realize it's a public park. I guess there are always interesting places so close by that we haven't discovered. As for this photograph, I like it just because the boy seems so interested in the well.

                        In respond to the comment that the compression artifacts around the hard edges are distracting, I post the original photograph. I was trying to soften the background, but I guess I didn't do a good job. My original intention is trying to put focus on the well and the boy, but my camera has a very limited manual focus feature. So, I thought I could just use a software to soften the background. You think my original photograph is better? I feel like the original one has too many elements in it.

                            • It looks slightly tilted to me too. But only very slightly. However, it might be worth trying to crop to the tilt in Photoshop or something, just to see if the tilt becomes less distracting.

                              Overall, I think this is a very nice photo of a lovely foggy day. That bridge in the background is wonderful.

                            Montréal is my favorite city ! I love its architecture, the modern blending in with the classic, so similar to Manhattan, NYC, a city I consider my third home, (my 1st is Bangkok, my 2nd is Philadelphia.) Just that people in Montréal are French speakers and I don't understand a thing. :) Montréal also has a casio so close by. Although gambling is not my thing, but at least it adds to the to-do list in the city. This window is on Rue Saint-Paul in Vieux-Port de Montréal. The reflection of the windows in the window is a part of Marché Bonsecours.
