Slice of Life in Images, Sounds (#SOL15, Day 15)

Tunes in Ears (M.A. Reilly, Boston, March, 2015)
I have been participating in Slice of Life (#SOL15) Challenge for the last 15 days. I thought today I would show what I have been seeing and recording in image through the lens of my camera during the first two weeks.

I made the black and white images in Ringwood, NJ, Newark, NJ, Manhattan, Boston, MA, and Tuxedo, NY.

Enjoy the slideshow. It's 2 minutes.

  3. Stunning! I especially loved your photographs of the trees. There is something about the juxtaposition between their winterish naked vulnerability yet standing tall throughout all the bitter weather Winter throws at them. I thoroughly enjoyed your slideshow. Thank you so much for sharing.

    1. I hadn't thought of the trees in that manner, but yes there's a vulnerability and courage there. Thanks for noting that.

  7. The juxtaposition of the city and the country, the general and the specific, the one and the many made this a visual delight. The music was a lively companion lifting me to see the beauty in what could be seen as dreary. Students engaged in learning and the solitary deer remind me that life continues and is productive during the winter season. As you can see I got quite a lot of enjoyment from viewing your slide show. Plus it was an incentive to capture my own slices of life in an artistic way.

  9. You make lovely imprints on the world both in writing and in image. Thank you for sharing this beauty. I also love the music of the video.

  10. WOW! Initially, I watched this with the sound muted - unknowingly. Then, I read someone's comment about the music and got all curious about what music you would set that to. I pushed the "unmute" button and "play" again. NOT what I was expecting. It had a completely different personality the second time through - both lovely, but it was very interesting how I was reading these hazy, foggy images on my own, and then how I read them the second time with your music choice as the narrator. Lovely!

    1. That's interesting. I had a lot of trouble selecting music. I always do. You are making me think that it might be interesting to have it play without music too. Thanks:)
