Triangles and Treeangles

There is such a glare from the afternoon sun. f29 did not suffice.

 John Mann, lead singer for the CDN band, Spirit of the West, was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimers in 2014 at the age of 52, the very same age as my mother.

 

In November, 2015, a concert was held to raise money for his ongoing care. Lots of famous CDN musicians were there and this video shows a number with many of these singers singing one of the band's signature songs which I have featured here a few times. The afflicted John Mann is dressed in white and certainly was having a great time here..

I really like this scene, Mary, with a slight preference for the lower image.
Mary MacADNski: I remember the glorious day in full colour.
I like both, Mary, but I lean more to the top image. What a gorgeous scene!
Mary MacADNski: They each have their strengths. It was a glorious day in either version.

Much less glareful in the coloured version, Mary
Mary MacADNski: Yes, it is a bit softer there.

The b&w image is a fine one
Mary MacADNski: I prefer it myself.

What a wonderful scene and indeed the sun is shining here. I love the few trails in the snow. I might go with the B&W one.
Mary MacADNski: It is my choice - for the graphic quality of the trees.

I love the shades - both images are wonderful!
Mary MacADNski: It was a very warm day when I was snow shoeing last year.
Makes a great b&w.

Alzheimer's is a growing problem and a frightening disease
Mary MacADNski: Alzheimers weighs heavily in my family.

I looks a fascinating surface Mary.
Mary MacADNski: It was soft snow on a very warm day. I was snowshoeing for the second time that day.
Tow fine versions of the same composition, I think the B.& W.one just does it for me.
Mary MacADNski: I prefer the graphic quality of the trees in the B/W version.
Nice shot, regardless, Mary. George Melly, the English jazz singer also contracted Alzheimers - in just about his last tour he appeared on stage and said, "Wonderful thing, Alzheimers! You meet new people every day!" - what a way to go!
Mary MacADNski: Not a good way to go for the sufferer or their family. I wish the puzzle would be unlocked.

I like the strong shadows from the low angle fo the sun.
Mary MacADNski: It was very warm and the last day of snowshoeing for a while.
Vote the image in black and white, photo by Fine Art
Mary MacADNski: Thank you. If it were to be considered fine art it would have to be edited I suppose. This is a straight conversion to b/w on a small internet based photo editor.

The B&W one is for me Mary, lovely curves and straight lines
Mary MacADNski: I like the b/w too. I see letters in photos and see K's here.
Nice shots, Mary. I do like shadow shots on snow.
Mary MacADNski: It was a soft slowly melting snow and very warm like you might get.
they both turned out well Mary... i prefer the top one with the treatment....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: Jack's yard. My friends have sold that house. It was such a beautiful spot to hang out - especially with a golden retriever.
Hi Mary! Sorry I didn't comment on this yesterday - I often play your music while visiting other blogs.... then somehow I forgot to hit "Submit" on this when done!
Anyway - I LOVE the photo... the B&W shows off the shadows so nicely!
Thank you for this very touching video!
Mary MacADNski: I am so glad I looked this far back today. I love this video too. Such a meaningful song in the situation. My mom had 8 years after her diagnosis and died at 60, which will be an unbelievably 20 years this March.

I do the same with videos and listen to them while on other blogs, unless the video itself, like Bill's yesterday, need to be watched too. Glad you came backa and that I did too.
