Photoblog: The world, one image at a time.

contemplative in kensington…

Hello, world!  It has been so long since I last posted an installment in my “People” series!  A little thing called exams decided to crop up in med school…and then I was outta Philly so fast for break!  Hence, no pics.  Oh well.  I enjoyed all of the sleeping and holiday eating.

So, this photo was taken at the Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby, which I attended with the wonderful Dr. Heather.  This guy was just leaning against an abandoned building for quite a while, looking rather deep in his thoughts.  He was quite fascinating to photograph, as I could only imagine what inner workings were keeping him so occupied for so long.

As usual, taken with the amazing Canon Powershot G7.  Contrast and hues were adjusted using Adobe Photoshop CS3.  Also, the ugly garbage can was cropped off.  🙂

On another note, the photoblog has passed the 50,000 hits mark!!  Yay!

On yet another note,  HAPPY 2010, PEOPLE!!!  Let’s make this year the best yet!!!

  1. Happy 2010 to you Elizabeth. Welcome back.
    How many more exams do you have to pass?

    • Hi! I have 3 more exams for my blocks in 2nd year…and then in May I take Step 1 of the USMLE (liscensing exam)…then I have exams after each clinical rotation for the next two years…then I take the USMLE Step 2…then, once I graduate and complete my first year of residency, I take the USMLE Step 3 and officially become licensed to practice.

      So, in a nutshell, I have more exams to pass than I even want to begin to think about!! 🙂

    • Thank you so much! I agree, there truly are fascinating people in this world…and its always a thrill to capture them and their emotions on film (or a memory card).
