We were napping immediately after the holidays, but now Point Focus Flash is back and ready to share some of our best shots from 2011 with you. Expect a few different posts containing what we consider to be the cream of the crop.
I saw the still from the video and it looked strickingly familiar!
Here’s the blurb about the video: "Living in New York I’d grab my Canon 7D, or S95, and shoot footage of what was going on around me. It seemed like a never ending project and you could stay filming life in New York for a long time. But eventually I put my camera down and started to edit. Here’s the end result, it’s a bit rough and ready but that’s life in the Big Apple I guess.“
Now–Here’s the story behind our photo: Susan was walking through Central Park and she saw the Bethesda Fountain. On top of the fountain there is a sculpture called Angel of the Waters. According to the Central Park website, the statue references the Gospel of John, which describes an angel blessing the Pool of Bethesda and giving it healing powers. As you can see from the photo the fountain is in the background. She walked across the Bethesda Terrace and when she turned around to walk back, this man had set up a bass and he was facing the fountain. "It was just really cool. He was really engrossed in his playing and people were skateboarding past him and playing with their kids,” Susan said.
More reasons to love New York–so many cool sights to see!
Photo from the Archives: View from the Washington Monument into Virginia. July 2010.
I was looking through my archives and chose this photo not only because of the great view of Virginia from the top of the Washington Monument but because it might be a while before we can go to the top of the Washington Monument due to earthquake damage. Some of the videos of people up top when the earthquake occurred are terrifying. I’m glad I got a chance to go up it in 2010 and get some photos of the remarkable views of the city.
M.A.S.H. style sign spotted in the Key West Bight Marina. Fair Lawn, NJ, Las Vegas, NV, L’anse, MI, and Minot, N. Dakota are all thousands of miles away; but John Parenteau? He’s the furthest away. Remember all the men and women in the armed services this holiday season, especially those far away from home. And if you spot a serviceman or woman while you’re out and about holiday shopping, how about saying, “We love you. Merry Christmas.”
To all of our brave servicemen and women–We love you and Merry Christmas from all of us at Point Focus Flash.
