…At least that’s what I’m coining it for now. Worcester got hit pretty hard, but of course those 60 mph winds and driving, piling snow didn’t keep me inside. Check out photos from my excursions.

Night Lights. Got some great shots tonight of the snow and silent streets. I really love what a different world it becomes when it snows, especially at night. The way the lights reflect off the snow, and the way they take in all of the colors of the night — the streetlights and passing cars.
Taken with my Rokinon 8mm, f11, ISO100. I think there’s one HDR in there, too, for good measure.
So, as I expected, attempting Stephen Wilkes’ tactic of blending the day and night in NYC was severely less interesting when done from my front porch. Oh well. It was a fun try. If you check out his photos, he does a couple things where nicely, one being what he uses as a transitional point. The Flatiron Building makes a perfect object. I found it tough to do this gracefully.
My first attempt is simply blended left to right, and for the second, I used the horizon as the point of transition, blending front to back. Let me know what you think!
This guy is amazing. He takes two shots — day and night — of the same location, capturing the unique flow of traffic and pedestrians in both worlds. Amazing. Check out the full article here: http://www.visualnews.com/2012/04/24/day-to-night-one-image-captures-a-day-in-new-york/
Photographer Stephen Wilkes captured the images from a fixed position, capturing images over up to a 15 hour period and later stitching them together into the seamless whole that you see here. The series, appropriately called Day to Night, tells the story of a city which bustles around the clock: people remain in the images both bright and dark. What does change are the activities presented: Coney Island transforms from a suntanning mecca to a brightly lit carnival, while hot dog venders close up shop and movie billboards light up around Times Square.
