Don’t Cross The Streams

  – There’s something very important I forgot to tell you.- What? – Don’t cross the streams. – Why? – It would be bad. – I’m fuzzy on the whole good/bad thing. What do you mean, “bad”? – Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body […]

Fifth Avenue Cigar Break

I think this was my first night out trying the E-PL1, maybe the second.   I had to get pretty close using this kit to get this shot, and I wasn’t really used to it, so I was a bit nervous, but the image was so perfect I pushed my self.

New York Harbor

I do not normally post twice on Saturday’s (or any day for that matter) but today is International HDR Day, at least according to Rick Sammon and Trey Ratcliff, so I thought I should post an HDR image in addition to my black and white Bus Stop image.  Taken about 5:30 am from Battery Park, […]

Bus Stop No. 28

I generally try to avoid publishing images of people in any pose or situation that would be a source of even modest embarrassment, although sometimes I might compromise that idea a bit for large groups where one person away from the main subject is slightly “compromised.”   To demonstrate where I draw that line, you […]

Live Bait

I spent a lot of time processing this one.  There was a lot of motion – pedestrian traffic to be specific – and I wanted to get rid of the ghosts.  There was also a lot of halos and glowing in the signage, lights and window of the restaurant. The restaurant itself is fairly old […]

Another Look at 20 Exchange Place and William Street

I’ve already published 2 views of this area.  This is actually the first one that I took, as I approached this corner by walking down William Street from the area behind the camera.  I hit this corner and took the brackets for this image.  While waiting for those 7 shots to cycle through, I kept […]

Olympus Camera and its Ridiculous Proprietary USB Cable

Until today, I have had nothing but praise for my Olympus Pen E-PL1 camera.  Today I tried to update the firmware, which requires proprietary software, unlike every other camera that lets you do it by memory card.  Whatever.  Not too big of a hassle.  You also have to connect the camera to the computer via […]

Delmonico’s and One William Street

  I have previously noted my fondness for triangle shaped buildings, formed at the corners of non-square intersections, so shooting this intersection was a given.  It is a 5 way intersection, which is responsible for the narrow-angled corners.  The central building is 1 William Street, which dates to 1907, and is currently occupied by Intesa […]
