ViewBug and Tristan Quevilly

In March of this year I found ViewBug – “a creative community with the world’s best photo contests.”

It was a love from the first sight. I joined it and it gives me an opportunity to relax a bit during very difficult time in my life (my wife is very seriously ill).

In every creative community you meet interesting people. I made many friends with extremely talented and very good people on WordPress. I also starting to know people in ViewBug.

Before my wife became ill I saw the portfolio of Tristan Quevilly on ViewBug and his newly created website. Tristan is from France but now lives and works in Columbia. Below is one of his photos.Cherua by Tristan Quevilly on 500px.com

This is what Tristan wrote to you:

“I’m Tristan Quevilly, a Portrait and Landscape photographer living in Colombia. 
 
I share with you … some photos I love, I hope you will enjoy them and maybe change your mind about this country. Colombia is not a dangerous country as everybody says, but  a true paradise with wonderful people and places ! You are all welcome ! “
I am sure that you’ll enjoy very much seeing Tristan’s photos HERE.

Security?!

It is wonderful that children who are loved play and don’t think about security.

The world is too dangerous today!

SECURITY

People and flags

There are always many people who look down at the skater rink in the Rockefeller center..

There are also many flags on the same side of the street.

On the edge of chaos

                                                 CHAOS

Millions of people believe that life came from the ocean.

Millions of turtles believe that life came from the sand.

Both oceans and sand are chaotic (even often they look orderly).

Anyway, if you don’t believe in God it means that you are sure that people

are fruits of chaos.

Ways in Rego Park Center

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – October 19, 2016

Rego Park Center is not far from where we live. It is several levels mall between two streets.

Costco located below the street level and you can get there only by elevator. Elevators also allow to go to any other level.

There are bridges between sides of the Center on every level.

It is possible also to go to the street level from the level above by escalator.

Brave people (none on the picture) use stairs.

photographed a group of people who was doing the same.

Why do you think I chose this group?

What other title can you suggest to the photo?

Queens gallery

Every photo you take communicates something about a moment in time – a brief slice of time of where you were, who you were with, and what you were doing.

Kevin Systrom

I would add to the quote above: “…what you thought and/or felt at that moment”.

Today I added the page “Queens gallery”. You can see it HERE. Click on the first photo and you’ll see all of them in proper sizes and colors.

I mentioned several times in my posts that we can find beauty everywhere. It is inside us and outside. There are wonderful sunrises and sunsets everywhere. There are beautiful plants, flowers, animals, birds, parks, wonderful buildings in every big city or a small town.

Beautiful nature and beautiful people are everywhere!

I hope that you’ll like something in my photos shot in Queens.

Please take a look and let me know what you liked.

Thank you!

Walls and places

I noticed today that THE DAILY POST has a photo challenge Wall and a daily prompt PLACES.

WALL

Share an image of a wall that reveals something about a place, people, or you.

*

PLACES

Beach, mountain, forest, or somewhere else entirely?

I thought immediately that walls of our apartment in Queens tell a lot about us, our friends, relatives and places we visited

We have three paintings of our friend artist Vladimir Ryklin, several other paintings we like (including two paintings of our granddaughters) and many my photos of different places.

Below are examples what you can see on the walls of our apartment.

Would you like to join them?

Below is a picture of activity on Hollywood’s boardwalk.

I have a small problem with this picture.

Can anyone tell me what is the name of the restaurant?

Anyway, I like that people enjoy being there.

Would you like to join them?
