Almost a Hopper
My friend Peter asked me to take a photograph of some sites in Sea Cliff so that he could paint them. He grew up here, but now lives in Albany. He was particularly interested in this building that used to be a pharmacy, but is no longer. I thought I would photograph it late in the afternoon so the light of the setting sun would illuminate it in a dramatic way. On the way home from my astronomy meeting tonight, I decided to drive down Sea Cliff Avenue and take a look at the building. It stopped me in my tracks! So I got out my camera, and a tripod and did some photographs. My immediate reaction was that it looked like an Edward Hopper painting! I love the feeling of this photograph, and the light on the building. I am not done with this yet - I still want to try late afternoon on a sunny day. If I get something good, I will post it. Stay tuned!
