SoHo Parking Lot Graffiti Wall

There’s a lot on this wall in  small parking lot in SoHo, but my eye keeps getting drawn back to the Spy vs Spy characters in the center, and the torn poster at the top left.

Beneath The Mottled Moonlight

This is the Queensboro Bridge, obviously at night, from a spot just north of the bridge on the Manhattan side. The bright, squat rectangular building on the opposite side is the terminal building for the Roosevelt Island Tram. Beyond the buildings you see on the far shore, which is Roosevelt Island and not Queens, is […]

South on Greenwich

After taking this image looking north on Greenwich Street, I turned my camera around and took this one looking the other way. I purposefully chose not to look at the first image before editing this one, so they are sort of non-identical twins. Repeat Announcement: I’m Taking Requests As I first mentioned yesterday, I’ve decided […]

Faded Trompe L’Oeil [Plus I'm Now taking Requests]

The trompe l’oeil painting of windows on the side of the building has faded, and is marred by some stupid graffiti, but still has the power to trick your eye sometimes. The mural dates back at least to the early 80s, and it was quite impressive back then. I’ve no idea what it would take […]

St. Anthony of Padua and Lisbon is quite the figure. He lived in the early part of the 13th century and was a direct disciple of St. Francis of Assisi. He was known even during his life for the miracles he performed, the quality of his peaching, and for his theological writings, and was called […]

Odd Numbers

Another shot of what might be a UPS depot on Greenwich Street in SoHo. If not it is some kind of warehouse with many, many truck bays. I’m feeling the urge to do a lot more black and white lately, but it always depends on whether it works for the particular image.

Self Portrait Friday – Paper Camera

This isn’t the best image possible to highlight this app, so let me include some more: As you can probably figure out,m this app creates a variety of sketched version of your image on an iPhone. One neat thing is that it does it in real time, while you are taking the photo, so you […]
