This is the fourth image I’m sharing from the Weber House. Previous images can be found here, here, and here. After seeing the prior 2 evening shots, I made it a priority to increase the brightness a bit on this one.

This is an early morning shot of Stone Street, one of the few locations in downtown Manhattan that has not been completely rebuilt and lost all of its old atmosphere. I am in the midst of transferring my Aperture catalog(s) to Lightroom, which is as much fun as it sounds. I have stepped up the […]
This is another experiment with intentional camera movement abstract photography, along the lines of the second image here. This one was taken at Juniper Valley Park in my home neighborhood. I like this one better. It was taken a short while ago during peak fall color which is definitely reflected here. On the other hand, […]
I was fortunate to have a chance to take these photos. The Market Diner closed Sunday, November 1, 2015. It was long expected, but also sudden. Everyone expected a few more months, and more notice at least. But neither came to pass. There were reports that they could just not make the rent. It lasted […]
After the 9/11 attacks, they spent a kajillion dollars rebuilding the Fulton Street subway stop where multiple lines converge. It’s better lit, some of the walkways seem a bit wider, but it’s still more or less a maze to get from one line to another. On the plus side they added this very cool skylight […]
We were driving back towards our hotel and town for breakfast in the Palouse when several of us spotted this crop duster. We pulled over and scrambled to grab some shots while it went through its patterns. It was tougher than I thought. While not very fast as planes go, its movements, though structured, were […]
Colfax has a Main Street, and like many in small towns it is a bit run down. The buildings look old and not every storefront is occupied. On top of that, some of the ongoing concerns are quite unassuming. We only stopped along this area at breakfast time, so we never seriously considered Sol Vallarta, nor […]
Continuing with my experimentation with abstract photography, I present two results of my first attempts at abstract images created via intentional camera movement. I took the second (lower) one first. After a few tries in the same location I managed the top image. It posed a bit of a mystery as I could not figure […]
I recently started taking shots like this while waiting on subway platforms. They seem to look better on the camera screen than full size on a computer screen. So I’m not sure whether I’ll keep on doing it. Maybe I need to play around with different looks. We’ll see. This is, as always, an ongoing process.
I lived on the Upper West Side for years, and walked along this stretch of Columbus Avenue countless times, but I don’t think I ever noticed this plaque until I passed it by a few weeks ago. Apparently nobody knows who Sylvia was or why the building was named after her. The best guess referenced in […]
The October assignment for both my We35 group and the Explorers of the Frontier Fellowship was “Superstition.” I would have liked to highlight a particularly local superstition, but oddly could not think of one for New York City. So I chose to combine a pair of well-known childhood superstitions.
