After Hours

Happy Friday! With the July 4th Holiday in the middle of the week, it made for a really fast sprint to this weekend. Every week should be like this. ;-)

What? You are still working?

When you leave work, look over your shoulder and see an image similar to the one below, you most likely worked after hours. I guess most have been there at some point along the way. It depends on your station in life and what you want to accomplish.

This could be an office building in most any major city but in fact, it's the beloved New York.

This is a 3-shot bracket (-2 to +2) processed with HDR Efex Pro. The image was then pulled into Photo FX Lab where I applied the "Portrait Drama" filter and a few slight global adjustments.

Posing Til Closing

It's Friday! And none to soon. But before we head off into our weekend plans, I want to thank you for your support.

The past few weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind as I work a special project, but this activity will be winding down soon and I so look forward to a return to normalcy... well, kinda. LOL

I've been visiting sites at some really off-peak hours and many of you have been cranking out some awesome creations. You can find some of them here on my "Photography of Interest" board on Pinterest. It's a continual work in progress so visit often.

To close out the week I have a funny sort of candid scene where a young man finds himself sleeping in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It was getting late in the day and perhaps he was just tuckered out. He was drawing some stares from passersby but none funnier than the residents (statues) of the museum, who seemed to be wondering when he would leave.  :-)

Sometimes... folks just don't know when it's time to go home. LOL

Have a great weekend everyone. I'll be catching up to you soon. ;-)
