  These houses sit in the Spuyten Duyvil section of the Bronx, on Palisade Avenue. Named the Villas Charlotte Brontë, they were built in 1926 and contain 17 co-op apartments with stunning views. The evening I was there featured a murky sky that was not favorable for photography until almost the exact moment of sunset, when […]

  “One sees great things from the valley; only small things from the peak.” G. K. Chesterton As we wound down this year’s #nXnw adventure, our group of 7 split up. Four members (Justin Balog, Michael Criswell, Robert Lussier, and Dave Wilson) stopped for an afternoon and overnight in Grand Junction, Colorado, while the remaining […]

This is the 551 car in competition Class P2, driven by Scott Tucker and Marino Franchitti. This car finished first in […]

  Swing bridges are cool. This is the Amtrak Bridge that crosses Spuyten Duyvil Creek. Depending on your source, and perhaps depending on pronunciation, “Spuyten duyvil” variously translates from Dutch as “Spouting Devil,” “Spewing Devil,” “Spinning Devil”, “Devil’s Whirlpool,””Spitting Devil,” “Devil’s Spate,” or my favorite, “Spite the Devil.” Hundreds of years ago, before a lot of […]

  Following upon my earlier visit to the Rockaway Brewing Company, the next stop on my tour of Queens breweries was to SingleCut Beersmiths in Astoria. By appearances at leadst, they would seem to have the largest operation of any of the breweries currently operating in Queens.   They serve not only their brews but […]

It’s been a few weeks since I put up an image from my nXnw trip to the national parks near Moab, Utah. This is Canyonlands National Park shot from Mesa Arch approximately one hour after dawn. This is my second image of a similar composition. In the first, which was taken a little earlier that […]

  About three weeks ago I decided to use up an old roll of Lomography Brand 120 Format black and white film. As it turned out, the film was probably older and more degraded than I realized as it yielded extremely grainy photos for 100 ISO film. On some the ink on the paper backing […]

  The auto repair shop painted like an American flag is a decent shot. Adding the red pickup in front could just be a distraction from the flag on its own. But the truck in front and the red[dish] dress hanging on the porch in the background just ties the whole image together.

Last week my family celebrated my mother’s birthday at Harvest on Hudson, a restaurant on the Hudson River in the town of Hastings-On-Hudson. And yes, both are located on the Hudson River. HotH features Italian cuisine with an emphasis on local produce. My wife and I found the main courses to be quite good, and […]

I took this by poking the lens of my Fujifilm x100s through one of the holes in the chain link fence that surround most of the James J. Byrne Memorial Bridge, aka the Greenpoint Avenue Bridge, connecting the neighborhoods of Greenpoint in Brooklyn with Blissville (a part of Long Island City) in Queens. Blissville was named […]

  Last Saturday July 6 I went up to Lime Rock Park in northwest Connecticut to view and shoot the 2013 ALMS (American Le Mans Series) Northeast Grand Prix. Lime Rock is a road race track set in a beautiful park setting. ALMS is an US version of Le Mans racing. The original Le Mans […]

  Apotheke is a self-described “cocktail apothecary,” although most of us would just call it a fancy bar with some exotic drinks served in a cool environment.  You might even need a password to get in, although if that is the case I’m also pretty certain that the password is published to the general public.

  I’ve lived in or very near to New York City for 50 years, and by “very near” I mean within a 10 minute walk of the city line.  For 4 of those years I lived within a similar 10 minute walk of the Brooklyn Bridge. On top of that, my primary hobby is photography. […]

  I took a Fuji medium format film rangefinder out on the Google Plus photowalk on June 29, which started in Chinatown. For a medium format camera it’s small, but objectively it’s a behemoth in terms of street photography . Still, you can find your moments with it.
