Cappuccino & Tattoo – Fun City Tattoo

I’m not a tattoo kind of guy, but if I were, I think I would give Fun City Tattoos a chance. I’m not sure they actually offer cappuccino, but their Yelp reviews are uniformly good. Plus, it just seems that St. Mark’s place is the right location to get your tattoo. This is right next […]

Ready For A Long Holiday Weekend?

  I think this guy is. Ready for the weekend, that is.  I may take a day or two off from posting. I haven’t decided yet, but if I’m missing until Tuesday, don’t send out any search parties.

Erie Lackawanna Ferry Slip, Hoboken, NJ

This is another look at the train and ferry terminal that was featured here. This is is the ferry slip for the Hoboken, NJ Erie Lackawanna train terminal and ferry landing. The skyline in the back is Jersey City, which sits directly across from downtown Manhattan.  I had to clean up a lot of dust spots. […]

Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Syracuse, NY

This is the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Syracuse, NY, sitting on Columbus Circle downtown.  The statue of the explorer was sadly, defaced on all sides, but you can only barely tell in this image.  There are two people in the shot, and oddly enough both of them did not move while I shot a […]

Footfalls echo in the memory Down the passage which we did not take Towards the door we never opened Into the rose-garden. Burnt Norton, The Four Quartets, T.S. Eliot. I worked on this image in the evening, stacking layers upon layer, effect upon effect. When I was done I was pleased, but worried it was […]

White Peony, Red Fringe

Today’s image provides a pleasant counterpart to yesterday’s mild disappointment. I have never worked with a macro lens before, and I was quite pleased with the results I achieved in my first effort. I am far from knowing what I am doing, and some of the results I achieved were largely accidental I think, but […]

Saturday Instagram Roundup

I almost had another week without any Instagram postings, but I managed to take some useable shots yesterday. The bottom two were taken with he iPhone’s native camera and edited in Snapseed. The top image was taken with the Hipstamatic Camera app, with the Libatique 73 Lens and Kodot XGrizzled Film settings. You can purchase Instagram images […]

Apple Store Cube – Both Film and Plastic Lens Friday

I went back into my archives for this one, looking for something for the Film Friday and Plastic Lens Friday photo themes on Google Plus.* This is a shot of the Apple Store Cube on Fifth Avenue, taken with the first roll I shot on my Diana F+ plastic camera, and also taken before the […]

Fort Tryon Park Dawn

I know I’ve written the story of this morning earlier, but it’s really the most relevant and interesting thing I have to say about this image: it was New Year’s Day and a gorgeous, mild morning at that. I had planned to get up in time to shoot the year’s first sunrise, which actually is […]

A common element of urbex photography, especially when using the HDR technique, is a shot that shows the interior decay of the abandoned structure contrasted against what is often verdant growth outside the window. Using an HDR program like Photomatix to blend multiple exposures can do this, but with a shot as simple as this […]

Hoboken Cigars

Walking along River Street in Hoboken, I came across this subtle bit of neon advertising for Hoboken Cigars, and was immediately drawn to its studied, understated cool. You can see me and my tripod reflected in the bottom center window. While I do not mind it here, I wish there were a magic tool that would allow […]

The Lake, Central Park – Infrared

I played with easily a half dozen variations of this – black and white, darker blues, more reds, etc., and finally settled on this, after I added the yellow tones in the trees. This is the Lake in Central Park, taken from the 72nd Street transverse looking northwest. Happy Mothers Day to all the wonderful […]
