I grabbed a shot of this guy in the subway in New York.
I used the Photoshop Fractalius plug in filter and then the oil paint filter to create the effect.


11 Tears

11 Tears 9/11 Memorial in the American Express Office

11 Tears 9/11 Memorial in the American Express Office

While walking around the perimeter of the  9/11 site this year we happened to go into the American Express office building and discovered this moving memorial.  “11 Tears,” a memorial honoring 11 American Express employees who died on 9/11, located in the company’s headquarters in the lobby of 3 World Financial Center. Suspended above an 11-sided granite pool is a 600-pound quartz stone, carved into an 11-sided teardrop. Eleven drops of water fall into the pool periodically, creating intersecting ripples. Victims’ names and words chosen by their loved ones are etched on the stone.
These words are in memory of Karen Renda, 52, American Express Travel agent.

This building in in Brooklyn at the corner of  Washington and York. It is tough to get the whole building in one shot so I took four shots and merged them in Photoshop.
