It was 16 degrees F yesterday, and today we’re expecting our first big snow storm of the winter.  So it’s time to start a series of 6-7 I took one August evening in Ferry Point Park in the Bronx.  I took even more than that, but processed that many to a level I like.  They […]

Water Street, Dumbo

This is Water Street in the Dumbo section of Brooklyn, looking towards lower Manhattan, taken between 9 and 10 on a recent morning.   I lived in this neighborhood about 15 years ago and haven’t been back since.  It was even less developed and more industrial then.   Now the contrast between the old and new is […]

UPDATE: At the suggestion of some […]

St. Patrick’s Cathedral Main Altar

Most likely the most famous cathedral in the United States.  I am fortunate to work about 2 blocks away, so during the week it is my church, for Holy Days and occasional visits.
