Photography has been an obsession since I was 13 years old and went off to Italy clutching my mother’s 1940s roll film camera. I’ve been fooling with computers since I bought an Amiga 1000 back in 1985. My first chunky pixelized images were digitized into that machine using a black and white CCTV camera. At last, with today’s software and hardware I feel that I can create the images I see in my mind’s eye. Visit my website at

    Great Capture! Also,It looks like it warmed up a bit what w/all the people skating:-) When I was NYC a few ago,I walked past that rink(it wasn’t open for business cause it was in October or November.

    P.S a Few Years ago is what I meant. (I hate making typos)

  • Don’t we all. I always have to go over everything before I click the button. I’m an awful typist! :-) It has been very cold here but today got up past 45f for a change. Back way down again tomorrow I believe. I would rather have it a bit cold than all that damn rain like in England. Over the years I have shot the rink a few times but never climbed these rocks for a new vantage point. Thanks very much RobynLee, cheers

    Great image Chris, it looks cold there. Over here the weather is trying to drown us!

  • Yeah, I spoke to my Mother the other day. She’s practically housebound. I feel for y’all with all that rain. It looks dreadful. I would rather have it bitterly cold like it’s been here than have all that rain. At least I can go out here and there and shoot. Thanks for the nice comment Nigel, cheers
