  I walked across the Williamsburg Bridge yesterday evening for the first time. It was a beautiful evening and I timed it perfectly for golden hour, although this shot doesn’t take advantage of it. This is an iPhone shot,. I processed it to look like this after I crossed the bridge and hopped on the […]

  The title covers it. This is the China Pavilion at the Epcot resort in Walt Disney World (WDW), focusing on the replica of the Temple of Heaven, taken at night after the fireworks display ended. The Epcot World Showcase looks better at night than it does in daylight. The combination of darkness and well-done […]

  The good thing about January early morning photo excursions is you can usually get in some night time shooting at a somewhat reasonable hour before dawn. The downside is that it can be crazy cold, as it was this morning.  I have come to love this shot, which has been sitting around for several months, including […]

  This is a shot that is not as interesting as I imagined it would be when I took it. Part of it is a lack of sharpness on the buildings and the balconies. But I kind of think there’s still something here.  This is on Roosevelt Avenue in the Woodside neighborhood of Queens.

  I was out in Gantry Plaza State park with Rick Louie when I saw this group of rowers heading down the East River in their single sculls. I had no time to adjust any settings on my camera that was set to take motionless landscape shots and barely had a chance to even compose […]

Two different cameras and different film, but the shots above and below were taken about 1.5 blocks apart and within 20-30 minutes of each other. The live Kat had an uncanny knack for looking right at me and the klens, then turning away at the exact moment in between when I decide to press the […]

  If I knew what kind of car it is I would have said so in the title. It appears to say so on the rear panel but I cannot make it out and I didn’t take a closer shot to note the model. This is outside a collision/ auto body shop that works on […]

  Hoboken has a surprisingly large number of painted row houses.  It’s sort of an open secret. I went there a few weeks ago hoping to wander around most of the morning but some unpredicted rain cut my trip short, so I only grabbed this shot and one more before packing it in.  This is […]

    I believe this venue is now a dance studio.  This sign appears on Cooper Avenue, in the Glendale section of Queens. This images is a bit of a bastard. It was shot with 35mm film, on a Minolta SRT-202 with the 58mm f/1.2 lens, but I cropped to a square fake  medium format look with […]

  The coolest looking thing about this building is the sign on the roof, which I will eventually feature. But on a late afternoon this side of the building looks great when shot with Velvia film.

  Even though it seems like it should not work, I be that somehow this door does open and function. Not much more to add except that this is Kodak Ektar film, accidentally overexposed with as much color and detail recovered as seemed possible.

  The platform you see is not in use and has not been publicly accessible for years. But is is also not a secret as you can freely see it from the very public platform I was standing on when I took this. The rather cool looking Brooklyn Bridge tiles are barely noticeable in person due […]
