Ansel Adams

But the Colorado rocky mountain high
I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky...

The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullabye
Rocky mountain high...


{Rocky Mountain High -- John Denver}

I've always loved Ansel Adams' work. His landscape photography and use of light and contrast are just breathtaking. I was so excited that his work is the latest work at the MFA and took time over break to go see the exhibit.

The exhibit has so many amazing Ansel works. I was struck by his picture of San Fransico Bay before the bridge was built! It was amazing to see how his work progressed over his lifetime.

The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 2

The Good:
I'm back in long distance race training. No marathons this year, but hoping to race a half and break 2:00 hours. I am running the NYC Half in March and am fundraising for Team For Kids and would be so grateful for any support on this new endeavor!

The Random:
These are leftover from the election. In Judaism shiva is actually a serious practice after you lose a family member...so the slogan is just random to me!

The Fun:
Had a fun Saturday night at friends, lots of sushi, wine, ice cream, and Cards Against Humanity!

High Line

Mom and I walked the High Line many many years ago on Thanksgiving and decided to stroll it again on our way to the Whitney Museum. Such a great use of urban space and design.
The reds and greys and more industrial feel of this part of the city draw me in. No glitz, no lights, no glam. But brick and steel and rusty bits. Probably one of my favorite parts of NYC.
