Available In My Galleries Here Ever since my buddy Justin first put his hands on a Fuji x100 series camera he has been a bit obsessed with its 35mm field of view.1  He wrote a book about it with his partner at The Photo Frontier, Armando Martinez. When I met up with them and several other […]

I was surprised to notice that I had not posted this image yet as it is a favorite of mine from my family’s vacation to Disney World in the spring. I went out for coffee very early and saw morning light that was beyond perfect. This is a quick snap JPG straight-out-of-camera that should probably geta […]

Normally people post signs waninng/asking/begging/threatening with instructions not to park in front of a driveway or garage entrance. Only in the West Village have I ever seen hand-scrawled sign notifying all who come by that: This is NOT an active NOT an active Driveway. Bldg NOT in USE for years. And for the record – there was […]

nXnw2014. A group of photographers stands cramped in a small rocky area waiting to shoot the sunset and Bass Head Harbor Lighthouse,  except for Chris Nitz who got bored and went wandering. And climbing. While he was out there he turned around, pointed his camera at us, and took pretty much everyone’s favorite image from the trip. […]

The area has been revitalized, which means most of its history is gone. I revisit this topic and my mixed feelings about it over and over. A thriving city must change to meet the needs of current residents, but I still miss the history that is destroyed with each renovation and new construction. The Keler Hotel […]

I had just exited the subway using this opening and in doing so noticed its somewhat stark minimalism. No ads, patterns, logos or decorations. Not even any indication of what station this is, which most exits have even when they are Exit Only. So I turned around after completing my egress, waited for a moment without any […]

The Empire State Building is famous for its ability to match almost any color combination and the building’s use of it to honor, famous visitors to the city, sports teams, historical events, and other occasions. I almost always enjoy it in its signature white, and was glad to notice that was the color it displayed […]

I had been saving this image to announce my participation in a new project, until I realized that it has nothing to do with the project. I’ll announce the project soon.  It’s not a secret, and it’s not my personal project, but I don’t have the pieces in place to make my first entry and announcement […]

Available In My Galleries Here Early Sunday morning in the West Village, at the corner of Leroy and Greenwich Streets. The entire outside of the building is a copy/version of a previous work by Martin Creed originally shown at the Tate in London. I think the idea behind the piece — “the whole world + […]

This is my second shot of the bubbles – the first is here. This one is a real film image, using motion picture film stock that’s been modified to use in 35mm still film cameras. The 200 refers to the ISO. Like many, but not all motion picture films (some are set for daylight or […]

Nothing to do with the movie of the same name, except that the Mystic River in Boston (the source of the movie name) and this one in Connecticut, are both based on the same Native American Indian word for large river.*  This Mystic River splits Mystic, Connecticut.  On the opposite bank is the part of the […]

This imposing figure was created to be the figurehead on the Great Republic, a 335 feet-long cargo ship built in 1853. It was the longest wooden sailing cargo ship ever built in the United States. When the Great Republic first launched from Boston Harbor, the city declared a public holiday, and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow recited […]

This was the last stop on the nXnw trip. Lo Presti Park in East Boston. This is actually the remnants of Carlton’s Wharf to the side of the park. We must have arrived at the extreme of low tide. Most images I have seen of this location show these pilings nearly submerged in water with […]
