A VIEW OF A THIRD FLOOR WINDOW is technically part of my “Views From A Third Floor Window” series, but in this case the view doesn’t extend much past the window itself. This photograph was taken on the morning of March 9th, 2022. The day started out with a few raindrops hitting our east facing windows but quickly changed to a full blown “wintery mix” with high winds coming straight out of the south. A VIEW OF A THIRD FLOOR WINDOW was taken about 45 minutes after I first noticed the raindrops. Again, the image is, “as taken” on my cell phone with no filters, alterations, or enhancements.

CONTRAILS is part of my “Views From a Third Floor Window “series. It was shot at around 5:30 pm on Saturday, February 27th, 2022, using my cell phone camera and looking toward the west. Given the winds and time of day, the composition and palette are more a matter of looking up at the right time, reacting to the scene and having a camera at hand than they are to any conscious planning or composition on my part. Within seconds of CONTRAILS having been taken the contrails had almost completely dissipated. I was particularly struck by how the contrails created a geometric structure to the scene, and how one seemed to pierce another. (2022)
