Scene Direction and, pose creation
I have never before welcomed and felt the first sun rays as much as I did on this cold January Sunday.
This image is a collaboration with www.flickr.com/photos/geoliv/. Thank you, Geoff, for sharing this moment in time with me.
Today, millions of people around the world will witness as one administration ends and a new one begins. A change in leadership which, in many ways, couldn't be more bipolar opposites.
I didn't know if I would be able to create this image under these conditions. Working with Geoff, who is a talented and sincere photographer, made it possible.
I don't know what the new administration will accomplish.
But I know, deep down, that the hearts and minds of people all over this planet will insure a better life in this world for this and future generations.

Enfin Bruxelles se réveille et fait appel à des artistes pour cacher des chantiers qui, il faut bien le dire, ne sont pas de toute beauté même s'ils sont une nécessité.
Un magnifique exemple de collaboration entre artistes (ASBL URBANA et Interfaces) pouvoirs publics (Ville de Bruxelles), investisseurs du privé (BNP Paribas) Entrepreneurs (De Meuter) et j'en oublie probablement...
Il est à souhaiter que ce ne soit point un "one shot" mais que cela devienne une saine habitude de faire appel à des artistes pour masquer le temps nécessaire les travaux urbains.
Pour en savoir plus :
I'm pleased to announce that this shot was 'Highly Commended' by the judges of the Take a View - Landscape Photographer of the Year 2012 competition in the Urban Category. Hugely chuffed about this. It's going to be on display as a printed copy at the National Theatre in London from the 12th November until the 12th January 2013. The shot also appeared in yesterdays Sunday Times - which is just fabulous - over the moon.
Apparently the book is out already - I haven't seen a copy - but judging from the shots in the Times yesterday its going to be fabulous - some really amazing shots - very much looking forward to seeing them.
As for the shot - well this was pretty much the last shot before my ill fated trip to the bottom of the Thames on the Shard's Inauguration night, so its the last shot I have with my D300 - which was smashed up in the fall. It was taken from across the river - slightly elevated along with hundreds of other photographers - I was surprised at just how many had turned out - it seems such a long time ago now.

A tiny section of the massive crowd that was at the event. We got there around 11:00 a.m. These were a few of the folks behind us.

First, my apologies for bringing up a political subject in a forum that some feel should be devoid of political opinion.
I spent today reflecting on the merits of public lands in the U.S., and the potential outcome of turning over Federal lands to the states, and subsequent sales of those lands to private individuals and companies. The possibility of this transfer is more realistic today with the recent bill passed by the House, making it easier to transfer Federal land to the states, and the inauguration of Donald Trump.
The view in this photo is on Federal land, but is within 1/4 mile of evaporite ponds that cover a significant area near Moab Utah (earthobservatory.nasa.gov/IOTD/view.php?id=83905&eocn...). The ponds are used to concentrate potash, a potassium bearing mineral used largely in fertilizer. (BTW my father was one of the chemical engineers who consulted in the construction of this plant in the early 1960's, so my early well being is tied in small part to its existence)
Clearly the current use of this land has merits in enhancing food supply for humans. However this area is also heavily used for recreation. It is conceivable that this area would be used to enhance the production of the potash mine, and become one of the next evaporite ponds., which are already quite visible from Dead Horse Point, the high point on the mesa in the center of the skyline. Access to this scenic area and the White Rim road may also cease. It would enhance the profits of the company that operates this mine, and may increase the supply of potash, of which the U.S. produces about 2% of the world's production. It would also seriously compromise the aesthetic value of the area. Is the loss of public access to this land, and the loss of tourist money worth the benefits to greater potash production? This is only a hypothetical possibility- as far as I know there is no plan for increased use of the area for evaporite ponds, but it provides a reasonable scenario, given the sentiment in the Utah state government.
My hope is that those in power will properly weigh the pros and cons of use of Federal lands, and the potential for transferring those lands to the states. Let's keep public lands public. Let's also remember people need to make a living. The two are not antithetical.
Photographic note: this is a 3 photo stack to enhance the sharpness throughout.

Partied with 16 girlfriends today. They came for lunch and to watch the 44th president's inauguration. Saw this reflection and grabbed my camera.
Post-inauguration, we decided it was easier to walk back to Virginia rather than try to fight for a spot on the shuttle bus or metro train. They had mostly blocked off the 14th Street bridge for pedestrians to do just that. I think we had about a mile left to go at this point.
Yesterday my brother in law got installed as Professor, of course I took some pictures... :-)
We are all very proud on his achievement!
