Pegasus and the Clouds


In my younger days, I spent some of my days in my father’s house in Kingston, Georgetown, and this hotel has always been known to me as The Pegasus.  The name of the hotel has changed a few times over the years, but regardless of who has owned it or what name they gave it, it has always been known to locals as The Pegasus.  Under the new owners, it is once again The Pegasus (officially Pegasus Hotel, Guyana), a name that stirs up images of the mythological flying horse.  Of course, my images of Pegasus are of the winged white horse of the books and older movies that I recall, not the black beast of the recent movie, but times change and perceptions change.

I was walking on the Kingston Promenade with Nikhil, when I saw the clouds to the south-west, and although it is not usually a picturesque scene I thought that maybe it would make a nice Black and White HDR (High Dynamic Range)  image, so I took my three exposures and moved on to other things.  The only thing of interest in that direction, other than the clouds, was the Pegasus Hotel, so the resulting photograph was of Pegasus and the Clouds.

The resulting image come out a bit grainier than I had hoped, but I think that the overall image made a nice Black and White.

  1. I like the new design, very nice. I think also, you are always telling the story of how you came to take this particular shot, maybe it’s time to do a tutorial. I’d certainly like to get some of the details.
