AARGH! As you can see by looking at my January 29th post, my MacBook Pro crashed for the second time in 90 days. Since it remains under full warranty - apple once again has replaced the hard drive. Since the monitor was only recently calibrated, and since I spent so much time with it this week, I prepared this image below, and the image from the 29th on that MacBook. Now I see why many of the people who have looked at this image on various forums were underwhelmed. It in no way represents the graphic that I worked upon and thought I was posting.
I have just recalibrated that machine, but I simply lack the sizable time to redo this image. So it is effectively lost. I think I shall leave it as both a warning re. what not to do, and a double warning about buying a MacBook Pro.
I offered to pay Apple the difference between the second hand value of the damaged machine and a new replacement, and they would not consider my offer even though this is the second time in 90 days they repaired my machine. Needless to say, I no longer have faith in it.
With that said, here is the original posting about which I am bummed. I reeeeeeely liked the way that I thought this image would look to you. Sorry.

Grand Central: bustle, glimmering. Fast, dim, hectic, bright, a portal place.
Many of you know that I don’t do tripods. But the blur of infinitely replaceable people going, coming, held between here and somewhere… That’s why this central is grand. And what I thought needed capturing within its cavern.
So how to do that with no visible means of support?
Here’s my try. And your verdict is?
This is my second go at Grand Central Station and a companion piece to the first which you'll find by clicking here.
And for those of you who enjoy seeing the original, here's what I came away with on my Canon disc.
