Tom Kat

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 shutter and actually do so. I also have no idea if it is a Tom or not.

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 a lot of older and classic cars in Glendale, Queens.

      Thank you. A pair of my Facebook friends reached the same conclusion so I think it must be correct.ReplyCancel

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.

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
