Looking Back at the Colors of Fall

Here are collection of pictures I took this Fall, here in my hometown of Easton, PA. All pictures were taken with my iPhone XR.

My NBA Predictions for the 2018/2019 NBA Season

The NBA season has been under way for almost a week and I am clearly late posting my predictions at this time, but I can honestly say that the early games have not influenced any of the following predictions.

Eastern Conference Champions: Boston Celtics 

Western Conference Champions: Golden State Warriors

You could say that that Celtics and Warriors were the obvious choices to win their respective conferences, but I did not find it easy to pick either team. I think there will be strong competition in both Conferences and I won’t be shocked at all if either team is denied a trip to the Finals this season.

In the East I think Toronto, Milwaukee and Philadelphia will pose real threats.

In the West I think Houston and Utah will be dangerous rivals to the defending Champions.

Most Valuable Player: Giannis Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee Bucks

MVP was another very difficult choice. There are probably at least half a dozen players that have a legit shot, including Lebron, Durant, Anthony Davis, James Harden, as well as young guns Ben Simmons and Jayson Tatum.

Rookie of the Year: Luka Doncic, Dallas Mavericks

Coach of the Year: Brad Stevens, Boston Celtics

NBA Champions: Golden State Warriors

I really can’t say that I want the Warriors to win another championship, but with their current roster it is very difficult to pick very difficult to pick against them.

 

 

 

On The Waterfront: Midtown Manhattan at Night

I was in Hoboken, NJ this past Friday night and took this shot Midtown Manhattan. It was beautiful, clear night and this vantage point from Hoboken really captures the dramatic cityscape of Midtown. The illuminated spire of the Empire State Building can be seen center and cluster of skyscrapers to the left of center are buildings of the futuristic Hudson Yards.

This picture was taken with my Canon G9X Mk II.

I visited Riegelsville, PA last week and took these pictures of the historic Riegelville Bridge, which spans the Delaware River and connects Riegelsville to Warren County, New Jersey.

The 577 foot bridge was built by¬†John A. Roebling‘s Sons Co. and opened April, 18, 190

 

 

 

 

 

Clouds over Bethlehem, PA

I shot these two pictures with my iPhone SE on Sunday, July 22, 2018, while walking over the Fahy Bridge in Bethlehem, PA. The bridge crosses the Lehigh River and connects Historic Bethlehem with South Bethlehem.

In the distance you can the old Bethlehem Steel plant on the right side of the river.

I modified both photos with the HDR Blue Sky filter on the Tonality App.

Sun Shining on the Statue of Liberty

I took this picture of Statue of Liberty this past Wednesday (05/02/18) from the top of Outlook Hill on Governors Island, in New York City. It was about 4:45 pm when I took the picture, approximately 15 minutes before that portion of the Island closed for the day. It was a sunny, but very windy day, with some clouds. It was an almost surreal sight to see the Sun Rays beaming down of the Statue of Liberty at the moment that I took this picture with my iPhone SE.
