iframe> Some years ago when the internet was young I stumbled across one of those intriguing quirky amateur pages that used to provide the interwebs with its charm. This one explained that the number 47 had a special meaning in Star Trek lore — it shows up all the time — and that this could […]

Well the morning got away from me so very little time to add much, except that this is Gantry Plaza State Park in Long Island City, where the walk I will be leading as part of Scott Kelby’s World Wide Photo Walk will finish. My walk is full, and there are even a few people still […]

Last Monday I greeted you with a dark tunnel, so this week I thought it appropriate to follow with a more optimistic image to start the week. What could be better than dawn and the Brooklyn Bridge? There are some crazy colors there, which I did not create. They just showed up that morning as […]

I’m not inclined to use textures very much, and when I do use them it appears, from my own perspective, to happen almost randomly. Obviously I chose to add one here but I could not explain why I did so, or why the thought even occurred to me.

  291, also known as Gallery 291, also known as “Little Galleries of the Photo-Secession”, was a famous art and photography gallery located on the fifth floor of a walk-up townhouse at the address 291 Fifth Avenue. It was created and managed by photographer Art Stiglitz in the early 20th Century. In addition to being a […]

Although this is a photo blog, in today’s post, the image is really just there to seve the story. Yesterday at work I tried to charge my iPhone, but instead of charging it generated an error message: “Charging is not supported with this accessory.” Now this was odd because I had used that accessory to […]

Bethhesda Fountain is a great subject for infrared, as is much of Central Park, especially during the warmer months when the trees are filled with leaves. Tree leaves and most natural greens usually show up as white in infrared photography, but here I experimented with the hue and saturation controller in Photoshop and ended up […]

Sometimes you capture a moment and it is completely misleading. This woman is not browbeating her husband. In fact, she had been wandering while he sat and took a break. She returned and was telling him about something, over there, and he was looking, over there, and was squinting because the sun was in his eyes. […]

Not an awful lot to say here. Sometimes the image just spekas for itself: just a “No Trespassing” sign that is not-so-old yet weathered, beaten down, and defaced on Water Street down by the South Street Seaport on Water Street in Manhattan.

This isn’t really my view of Mondays. If you spend your time waiting for the weekend then you’re just passing through more than 70% of your life, and next thing you know, you wake up one day wondering where did the time go. Nevertheless, I’m not entirely unsympathetic to the idea that the work week […]

Friday morning I was on Fifth Avenue and grabbed a quick image of the Empire State Building with my Fuji x100.  For unrelated reasons I had brought my iPad and Camera Connection Kit with me that day. Jest before I left work, I decided to edit the image into a color version and black and […]

  This is one of those occasional shots I post even though I’m not fully satisfied with it. I’m not sure exactly what I want it to be, but I do think it should somehow be better and more interesting.  It also is a different take on the building (599-603 11th Avenue) I showed here. […]

About two months ago I announced that I would take requests for things to shoot in or around New York City. I am finally getting around to fulfill some of those requests. Although I will not always go in order received, I did think it appropriate to handle the first one submitted first. That came […]

As we grow older The world becomes stranger, the pattern more complicated Of dead and living. Not the intense moment Isolated, with no before and after, But a lifetime burning in every moment And not the lifetime of one man only But of old stones that cannot be deciphered. There is a time for the […]
