Your best shot 2019[edit]

Dear member of the Commons Photographers User Group,

It's early 2020, which means it's time again to look back at photographs taken over the course of the past 12 months. As always, I'm curious – what would you consider your best shot of 2019 and why? I invite you to share your image and your thoughts in order to provide others with the opportunity to celebrate, learn, and enjoy:

Your best shot 2019

Thanks for all your effort in sharing your vision of the world with others under a free license!

All the best, --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 20:19, 19 January 2020 (UTC)

Wikimedia Commons workshop for NYC community gardens[edit]

Hi! I proposed a workshop for the upcoming GreenThumb GrowTogether Conference (conference Apr. 4-5, CUNY Grad Center; workshop Apr. 4, 2:45-4:15PM) on using Wikimedia Commons to document NYC community gardens. Some folks from Wikimedia NYC recommended you as a possible cofacilitator. Would you be interested and available to cofacilitate? TrMendenhall (talk) 20:13, 26 February 2020 (UTC)TrMendenhall

Sounds like fun, TrMendenhall. Count me in; I have put thousands of pictures in WP including hundreds at WP events, and there's room for more. Odd, This does not mention time of day, but I expect to be there early anyway to coach and so forth, from beginning to end. Jim.henderson (talk) 21:02, 26 February 2020 (UTC)
Excellent! And thank you! I'll be in touch later today. TrMendenhall (talk) 14:59, 4 March 2020 (UTC)

Welsbach Electric = Edo Aircraft?[edit]

Is there any chance that the Welsbach Electric Building you took a picture of in College Point is the same building as the Edo Aircraft Corporation factory? If so, I'm going to group that and the Library of Congress images of the building into a new category. ----DanTD (talk) 00:19, 6 March 2020 (UTC)

No idea, DanTD. It's a factory district where this was the most impressive factory, that's all. Not planning to go there again; have other places I haven't seen in years if ever. Jim.henderson (talk) 00:23, 6 March 2020 (UTC)

Thanks, Beyond My Ken. Always nice when they give proper credit. I never thought this one of my better pics but I guess it fit the somber mood of the story. Now that the virus has shut down the pleasant in-person meetings of Category:Wikimedia New York City perhaps for months, and even impacted my suburban bicycle trips, I expect to resume uploading this year's pictures and sorting old ones to make them more findable. I might even find time to make a thoughtful collection of my favorites. Has the panic thrown you out of work or otherwise given trouble? Jim.henderson (talk) 12:50, 16 March 2020 (UTC)
So far, no, but it's likely that at least one of my gigs (in June) will be cancelled. Beyond My Ken (talk) 04:19, 17 March 2020 (UTC)
