                              I try to avoid getting stuck in low market share software platforms because whatever benefits they might have, eventually the lack of third-party apps, plugins, and utilities becomes too frustrating, and almost inevitably generates a death spiral as the lack […]

  Taken from J. Owen Grundy Park in Jersey City early on a Sunday morning in May, with a nice bit of tonal recession, plus the EMpire State Building and Chrysler Building.  This park is known for its views of lower Manhattan, but as you can see it also offers nice views of midtown as […]

  Last night I had the pleasure of finally meeting one of my internet photo buddies Jim Nix. We almost met on a group trip 2 years ago that I missed out on due to last minute travel disruption, so it was fortunate that his business travel took him to NY this week and we were […]

  Much like Ohio State,* Catholic University proudly insists on the “The” and its full name – The Catholic University of America. I became acutely aware of this when I had the pleasure of attending their graduation ceremony in Washington D.C. last month in honor of my niece. The building above is the National Shrine of […]

I looked around to see if this guy has a name but found nothing. He is not any specific person, and to my surprise, he has to nickname, not Erik o Olaf or anything, even though he has been a fixture at Epcot’s Norway pavilion for years. So now I think of him as “Bob.”Next […]

  That’s Mathematics Hall straight ahead, and Havermeyer Hall to the right. If I remember correctly, Mathematics and Philosophy were the two buildings named after individual departments of study. Several buildings, such as Law, Engineering, and Business, house separate schools within the university but I consider that a distinguishable from buildings named after fields that cut […]

  I haven’t posted a street photo in a while and since that interview with me that posted this week is in Street Photography London, and concerns my street photography, it seemed like a good idea to post one. This is a few years old from my archives.

      The New York City skyline as viewed from West New York, New Jersey,* shortly after dawn. Long exposure, converted to black and white solely in Aperture, (which after yesterday’s WWDC I’m pretty sure Apple is going to kill). *The Town of Eastchester is in Westchester County. East New York is in Brooklyn. […]

  I’m very fond of this neighborhood, and have shot it and expressed that emotion before. I lived in the building on the right with the arched entrance for about 4 years in the early 90s, when the neighborhood was still mostly industrial and Brooklyn Bridge Park was not even an idea.
