Today was the 25th anniversary of John Lennon's murder. I went down to the memorial in Strawberry Fields, Central Park, across the street from the place he was shot> There was a crowd of at least 300 there, huddled around the memorial, or singing Beatles songs with a band of acoustic guitars.
I of course brought my camera, and got a lot of pictures of the memorial and pictures of the crowd. I had a tough time choosing which pictures to post from today. While others who look at my work may not agree, I seem to like the close-up shots highlighting one aspect of a scene to the shots showing the whole scene.
Today's picture is of the memorial itself, covered with pictures of Lennon, apples, flowers, and other gifts. I'm still learning how to get colors to show up the way I want, and attempted to emphasize the warmth in this picture. There's still one part of the photograph that really annoys me, but I don't think it ruins it, so I didn't alter it too terribly. This one is a work in progress.
