I’m going to participate in Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness 52 project this year. I’m a little apprehensive, and unsure if I’ll be able to complete all 52 weeks, and produce good work, but I’m going to try!

Yesterday a photographer friend of mine Dali, a colleague of his, and myself went up north to San Rafael, CAto photograph the last Frank Lloyd Wright commissioned building before heading to San Francisco for the Chinese New Year Parade.

The building is the Marin County Civic Center building. I was shooting the escalator when this woman came down the stairs so, I quickly recomposed to make this image.

Need to work on: I wish I had slowed the shutter speed down just a touch slower though. I wanted her to have a bit more motion blur showing movement. I’ll have to practice more street photography to get better at ICM and people blur.

I have a few more images from the Marin County Civic Center Building, and lots from the Chinese New Year Parade I’ll be sharing soon.

More to come…



  1. I love this image- you’ve made it look like a photo from the fifties or sixties!!

  2. I think the blur is just right, and I agree it has a surreal quality. Nice job, and I’m sure you will more than meet the challenge.

  3. Neat shot Deborah, good luck on your challenge. Don’t think you will have any problem completing it. You may be thinking in B&W by the end.

    • Thank you Harold! I hope I’m able to think in black and white by the end. As you know I don’t shoot or develop many black and white images right now.

  4. I like this Deborah. there’s an almost surreal quality to this photo. I look forward to the next ones.

  5. Nice shot – I think you caught the blur just right. The overall tone gives a sort of ominous feel – I like that.

    Thanks for sharing – good luck with the rest of the challenge.
