moleman series: grand central terminal

moleman series: grand central terminal

..the moleman is back with new fun stuff..

..i really had fun playing around with this lens, it’s a challenge too because you get to see things in a wider, different perspective.. of course i planned what i wanted to shoot but i had to look around & turn around to see if it’ll look good, most of the time i had the camera stuck to my face as i did that weird dance to see firsthand what the effect would be.. of course i got weird looks from people around me but that’s what i like about nyc, most people don’t give a s**t..

..this here’s grand central terminal, shot from the west entrance..

crater

..looks like the inside of a crater..shot on my last visit to Houston..

The Williams Waterwall is a gorgeous piece of architecture located right next to the Williams Tower in the Uptown District. The 60+ ft. tall structure is in the shape of a semi-circle, with water that cascades down over it and down a series of steps towards the bottom. When you stand in front of it, especially at night when it is illuminated by lights from beneath the water, it is really a spectacular sight. It is situated at the end of a lovely little park surrounded by oak trees, and is a favorite photo opportunity for locals and visitors alike in Houston.

    ..made a beeline for the mall in central park and instead saw a group of guys playing football amidst the dirt, dust & fallen leaves.. the scene was further accentuated by the low lying sunlight peering through the trees and hitting the disturbed dust, bathing them in the golden, dusty glow of fall.. too bad this photo doesn’t do justice to what i actually saw.. oh well, i guess this will do for today.. πŸ™‚

    ..and i finally got my vfxy approved.. if you wanna give me some lovin’, now’s the time to do it.. lol..

    ..a few weeks back i worked late and decided to walk from the office going home and take some shots while i’m at it.. it was just 2.6mi so i thought it wasn’t that far.. i didn’t notice that the sun went down faster than it normally should so all i got was this shot.. and a dark, silent walk along the grassy “sidewalks” of alabama..

    ..also, i recently googled “venomous snakes alabama” and this is what i got.. haha..

    dirty dancing

    dirty dancing

    ..i’m not artsy but was just in the mood to do some ‘research’ πŸ˜€

    ..corollary to this post, and this post.. here’s another shot from this year’s dancing at the crossroads event..

    ..a dancer from the buglisi dance theatre performing an excerpt from the ‘suspended women‘ choreographed by jacqulyn buglisi..

    inspired by the writings of Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, one of the finest Hispanic poets of the 17th century, acclaimed in her time as “Phoenix of Mexico, America’s Tenth Muse.” This new work involved 12 women and 4 men and the terrible beauty that is seen in their surrendered falling and rising. This dance explores theΒ  places in this world that are neither here nor there, neither up nor down, neither real nor imaginary. They are the in between places (thresholds) difficult to find and challenging to sustain. Yet they are the most fruitful places of all. For in these liminal narrows, a kind of life (suspended) takes place that is out of the ordinary, creative, and genuinely magical.Β  Suspended Women will be danced to composer Daniel Roumain’s arrangement of Ravel’s Concerto for Piano in G major, with interpolations on the score composed and played by Roumain. Ms. Buglisi uses this dance as a vehicle to speak out against violence and supression.

    ..update.. changed the title, this sounds better.. πŸ˜€
