This is a Mikoyan Gurevich MiG-21 PFM, shot on the flight deck of the Intrepid Sea Air & Space Museum.   According to the information posted at the museum, this MiG was flown in 56 air forces, more than any other fighter, and involved in more conflicts than any other fighter in history. This specific […]

I continue to be torn between between the knowledge that the text that accompanies a photograph on a blog makes the experience much more interesting for visitors, and my hesitancy to discuss the people in my images and further intrude myself into their private lives in public spaces.  So I’ll just say here that I […]

Manhattan is the big city, but it is also small enough that if you do a lot of exploring, probably as a young adult, you can start to wonder how close you are to having been on every block.  You might start to mentally catalog the neighborhoods where you know you have gaps, but you […]

The full text of this ad reads “Brush Up Your Business With Paint Paste Paper Push.”  The ad, on West Broadway at Reade Street, was apparently uncovered in 1994, and confused people then as it confused me today.  Paint paper and paste all go together, and I could image a store that sold all three. […]

I think if you look closely there’s a bit less drama here than first appearances.  I believe the woman on the left is explaining, not berating.  Still, I do  love the expression of the woman in the back who cannot avoid being a spectator just because they are waiting at the same bus stop.

I confess, I’m pressed for time and pulled this from my archives because it was ready to go.  I’ve already put another shot of this diner up on the blog.  I like this one almost as much, but the sign for the store that went out of business makes that one better for me.  I […]

It’s like Superman is flying overhead, but only this one group of guys notices.  Either that or everyone else is totally blasé about it – “Yeah Superman. Whatever.”

It seems like forever since I was on a normal posting schedule, what with the alteration to the schedule to sync up the 50th posts for the Bus Stop and Crosswalk series, followed by the storm that knocked out my power and made my archives inaccessible, so I could only post new storm damage photos.

I served on the board of directors of a New York City transportation policy advocacy group for 2-3 years in the early 90s. Bike lanes have ever been, and probably always will be, a contentious issue. Not only do lots of drivers and even pedestrians hate them, but cyclists and bicycle advocates are not even […]

Please read yesterday’s post for more information about why I’m posting this instead of my usual photo fare.  As with yesterday, these are JPEGs straight from my Olympus Pen E-PL1 with no image processing. There were an awful lot of damaged and downed trees in the neighborhood, including Juniper Valley park. Here’s another view: Here’s a […]

The title phrase is not something we locals are used to.  As a result of the storm I am without power and cannot post any of my usual photos from my archives. But hey, I’m a photographer, so I took photos of the aftermath on my way home last night and again this morning.  I […]

Yesterday I posted a new crop of a previously posted image.  I like it, and most people  did also, but one reason I made the orignal composition is because, as a photographer or simply as a resident or visitor, you get very few Big Sky opportunities in New York City.   This is more typical […]

So maybe this is filler, but as I’ve explained in earlier posts, I’m skipping today’s usual installment of a Crosswalk series photo to better sync the numbering of the Crosswalk and Bus Stop series.  When I skipped a Bus Stop I posted a black and white version of an earlier HDR image that somebody requested.
