Hoboken Painted Buildings

 

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 on one end of Washington Street, which is the main drag, about a block away from Carlo’s Bakery of Cake Boss fame. I did not even get a chance to explore most of the more residential streets.

I have visited Hoboken before for photo outings, but mostly for the waterfront and NYC skyline shots.  I will be heading back at some point to complete my unfinished business.

Resignation

 

 

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 a white border. Just because I could and just because I wanted to.

Thypin Steel Building, Hunters Point Avenue

 

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.

    The side of the building looks pretty cool – although maybe I should say ‘on fire’ with those superb colours.ReplyCancel

    I can’t even BEGIN to say how cool that is, Mark, congrats on the feature my friend!! It’s exactly what I was hoping for in terms of the viewers experience; a really fresh style and outlook that stands out from all others. Absolutely top drawer!ReplyCancel

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 fil, accidentally overexposed with as much color and detail recovered was seemed possible.
