A note from the NYFalls.com founder:
Due to a company restructuring, I will be losing my full time job soon. Although it saddens me to leave the company that I have helped build up for the last 14 years to the success it is today, I am looking forward to new opportunities. I am known for my technical, managerial, and creative abilities, and I hope to utilize all of those talents in my next career. I put together a résumé outlining my skills and projects. Please have a look. Although I am open to any management position, I would like to leverage my experience and success with NYFalls.com and NYHistoric.com into a career in the WNY travel/tourism industry. If you know of a company that would benefit from someone with talents and experience, please spread the word. Thank you for your help and support.
Here is my Resume | Discussion topic

To become truly immortal, a work of art must escape all human limits: logic and common sense will only interfere. But once these barriers are broken, it will enter the realms of childhood visions and dreams.

Not judging Bills photos (cause they are great!) but wondering if I am taking "On the street" part of this too literally?

This is a great topic. Instead of an Ansel Adams wannabe, I'm a Cartier-Bresson wannabe.

Kyle, I think you are. "On the street" just means outdoors - out and about - doing everyday stuff. (As in "street clothes" - we don't just wear those when we're literally only "on the street.") Uh-oh, I'm starting to have flashbacks of the 3.14 photo.......

I'm not going to clearly define what the challenge is looking for... it is always open to interpretation.

Street, sidewalk, parking lot... sure that all seems to fit.... ties in well with the topic and will probably add points.
Lawn, garden, indoors, in water... not so much.

be creative...
