On bicep curling a 25lb weight!  I could pick the weight up and move it in and out of a shot but curl it?  No way!  I can curl 10lbs though :)

Monochrome Monday – The Bodybuilder

This past weekend I had the chance to participate in a photo shoot of a bodybuilder.  Sometimes I really enjoy my photography club ;)

WPC – Ephemeral

The surf pounds against the rocks on the beach and the water sprays skyward for a beautiful moment before it falls back into the ocean.  This photo was taken one warm August day in Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts on what is known as the singing beach.  I don’t know about singing but it is the first beach I’ve ever been on in the world that actually would squeak as you walked (or did a little dance) on it.

But even in August that water was frigid!

Save a horse (ride a cowboy) – Song Challenge

Seems I didn’t get out of NYC with this weeks song challenge but that’s just fine as New York is filled with so much imagery.  This photo was taken who knows when at night when we were walking back to our hotel near Times Square and the song does fit the image.   Have a great weekend everyone whatever you ride ;)

Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy) – Big & Rich

Cause I saddle up my horse
And I ride into the city
I make a lot of noise
‘Cause the girls, they are so pretty
Riding up and down Broadway
On my old stud Leroy and the girls say
“Save a horse, ride a cowboy,” everybody says
“Save a horse, ride a cowboy”

Morning Has Broken – Song Challenge

Morning Has Broken – Cat Stevens

Morning has broken, like the first morning.
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird.
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning,
Praise for them springing fresh from the Word...

I would imagine, depending on where you are in New York when the sun rises, that you might not get to see much of it because of all of the buildings…then again who knows!  New York is a pretty big place.  This beautiful sunrise was captured through our hotel window one early summer morning in midtown Manhattan.  I don’t remember how early this was but I do recall there weren’t that many people walking around on the street below.  A far cry from the hordes that were out there still when we finally called it a night.

Spinning Wheels – Song Challenge

Spinning Wheels – Blood Sweat & Tears

What goes up must come down
Spinnin’ wheel, got to go round
Talkin’ ’bout your troubles, it’s a cryin’ sin
Ride a painted pony, let the spinnin’ wheel spin

Well a carousel horse does go up and down don’t they and this is very much a painted pony :)  This one was going up and down and round and round in Bryant Park in New York.

Saturday in the Park – Song Challenge

Saturday in the Park – Chicago

Saturday in the park
I think, it was the fourth of July
Saturday in the park
I think, it was the fourth of July

People dancing, people laughing
A man selling ice cream
Singing Italian songs
“Eh Cumpari, ci vo sunari”
Can you dig it? Yes, I can
And I’ve been waiting such a long time
For Saturday

Come to think of it…I think this was a Saturday and it was in July but not the fourth; a couple walking their bicycles.  And of course this was taken in New York’s famous and wonderful Central Park :)
