The Grey Man Ponders Public Art

It seems whenever I have a photo of the Seagram Building, the same themes emerge. I’m not a fan of mid-century metal and glass architecture, but I love this building that arguably spawned the style, and I’m not a fan of some of the pieces they temporarily install on its beautifully simple plaza.

Our Lady Of Charity of El Cobre

This is a statue of Our Lady of Charity of El Cobre, or  La Virgen de la Caridad del Cobre, located in St. Mary’s Church in Yonkers, NY, also known as the Church of the Immaculate Conception, and the subject of numerous previous photos on this blog. A fair account of the story behind this vision […]

Newtown Creek and Midtown NYC Skyline

Yesterday morning I woke up in time for sunrise and spent it on the Grand Avenue Bridge, which is quite a small bridge spanning Newtown Creek. As far as the Creek runs, it serves as the border between Brooklyn and Queens, so I had one foot in each borough while taking this shot, so to […]

A Greenpoint Water Tower

The Missed Extra Point of Greenpoint

Anybody who has ever watched American football knows what I’m talking about. A team scores a touchdown, but misses the extra point. For the rest of the game the announcers will warn us that the missed attempt is either likely to “loom large” later on, or knowingly assure us that it is “looming large.”  It […]

Please Bus Your Tray When Finished

Lately my processing mode on these urbex images is to push things out there with some extreme filters, and then pull them back almost to normal before I’m done. That’s what happened here — I added some extreme tones and colors, only to remove most of what I added in later steps. The funny thing […]

The Grey Man Exploits A Loophole

I’m generally following a schedule of one Grey Man per week. This is the second one this week to make up for the lack of one last week during my brief hiatus. The Grey Man is a textualist. If you don’t want people walking in the bus lanes, say so.
