Over The Moon About Steve McCurry’s India and Holiday Sparkle

Slowing Down, Featured

 

I love visiting new photography and cultural exhibits in New York City. I get inspired to make more photographs and to travel to far and distant places. If you find yourself in New York City, please visit the Rubin Museum in Chelsea, NYC for the Steve McCurry: India exhibit. You have likely seen McCurry’s work — the Afghan Girl with the big green eyes on the cover of National Geographic magazine. His portraits and landscapes from India are both colorful and intoxicating.

In a bit of a meta moment, I couldn’t resist snapping photographs of other spectators snapping photographs of McCurry’s beautiful images. I hope you enjoy! What are you taking photographs of these days?

And now I focus on something entirely different. It’s holiday time and I couldn’t resist putting up some of my holiday photographs. Have a time with your family and friends! I think my favorite is the little girl in red, sitting on her father’s shoulders watching the entertainment. And the curls.

All photographs are taken by me, unless I have noted otherwise in the caption. I used my iPhone 6plus at the Rubin Museum and Canon 5D III elsewhere.
