A Question of Expressiveness

Look at their faces, of course. But then concentrate on their hands. And then answer for yourself the question of which is more expressive. As I mentioned yesterday, I am likely to take next week off from posting, and may very well skip tomorrow. I expect to be back April 8, with some slight chance […]

John Street United Methodist Church

This building is the third church built at this site, and dates to 1841. The congregation is the oldest Methodist congregation in the United States and dates to 1766. Over the last few years of photographing the city, I’ve come to reassess my understanding of how much of “old New York” remains. I cannot really […]

Late For The Train

One of those titles that just writes itself.  First full day of Spring today, and it’s about 30-32 degrees, with some light slushy snow falling. I’m ready for that mythical March Lion to Lamb transition. Any moment now. I’m sure it’s coming. Good luck to everyone participating in your local NCAA Brackets Pool.

Abandoned Building and Queensboro Bridge

A somewhat old photo from the archives.  Lately I’ve been playing around a lot with the color slider controls in both Aperture and Lightroom. I don’t really know what i’m doing, so the experiments can get pretty wild before I settle on something I like. I still don’t know anything about the building.* * You […]

Snow Lined Path to the Imagine Mosaic – Central Park

  This is a path leading from the Central Park drive up towards the Strawberry Fields/Imagine Mosaic.  It snowed again last night. We haven’t had much in the way of major snowfalls this year, but there have been several smaller snowfalls that make everything pretty for a short time then quickly turn to mush.

“Well, if it’s a symbol, to hell with it.”

It’s hardly news at this point that the world has a new Pope, the first Pope Francis. It did seem fitting today to post some church photos. When I had the opportunity to shoot St. Mary’s Church in Yonkers, Msgr. Corrigan was kind enough to place some unconsecrated communion wafers, water and wine on the Altar […]

Central Park Lake In Winter

This is the smaller section of The Lake in Central Park, on the east side of the Bow Bridge, which is slight to the left and behind this point of view. This view of the Central Park Lake In winter shows a light ring of snow around the lake and dusting the ground. The East […]

High Bridge Tower

This tower sits on a ridge above the Manhattan anchorage of the High Bridge. The High Bridge is an aqueduct/pedestrian bridge spanning the Harlem River at roughly 174th Street, that was part of the Old Croton Aqueduct that once carried water from the Croton Reservoir into New York City for much of the 19th Century, replaced […]

Hell Gate Bridge and Bronx Lighthouse

Sunday morning I trekked up to the High Bridge section of Manhattan. I was not able to get the shot I wanted of the High Bridge itself, because the Bridge is undergoing renovation and you cannot get too close, but I did get this unexpected view of the Hells Gate bridge and the little decorative […]

Pier A, Hoboken, Hudson River, and A Flock Of Seagulls

This is an image from last Spring. April 2012, to be more specific.  Today it’s snowing. I’m so ready for Spring. That’s the Verrazano Bridge in the distance, with what appears to be a giant ship right in front of it, but that’s a trick of the perspective. Happy Friday and Happy weekend.

Outside In

This has been a troublesome image to get right, and I don’t think I’ve quite managed, but it’s time to put something out there and move on.  It’s much easier to convey the right mood shooting from inside with bright sunlight appearing only in spots through open windows or building cracks. The bright sun and […]

St. Mary’s Side Chapel Statue of Jesus [Church of the Immaculate Conception]

Sorry to have missed posting for a couple of days. I was sick and my Mom is in the hospital (doing well, thanks), and the combination turned my life and plans for the week upside-down.  This image was fully ready to go. Without further discussion,  I present the statue of Jesus from the Side Chapel […]
