After a Summer Hiatus

I took the summer off from my blog.  Actually, I just didn’t have anything to share or write about, and before I knew it I hadn’t posted anything in three months.  Nobody reads it anyway, so I don’t think I was missed.  And, the world doesn’t really need another blog post.  But I do want […]

Walking Among the Kite Surfers


I enjoy the whole vibe of Cabaret in the Dominican Republic.  One of the more fascinating places for me to go to on my last visit was an area called Kite Beach, where you can learn to kite surf and then go out among the throngs of other surfers enjoying the seemingly constant wind.  On […]

Airborne Kite Surfer

This image was taken on Kite Beach in Cabarete, Dominican Republic.  I went to the beach hoping to get some decent shots about an hour before sunset.  I got there around 5:30pm, but the sun, which is of course already low in the horizon this time of year, was beginning to be blocked by the […]

Mets-Willets Point Subway Platform

I love winter light.  The long shadows cast by the sun’s lower position nearer to the horizon can create some dramatic effects.  The girl’s hair was what first caught my attention.  I was attracted to the way it was backlit.  I thought of how I could frame her and decided to include the larger scene […]

A Groom Being Groomed

I took a small gig photographing the wedding of a young couple.   They decided to forgo the crazy and expensive route of a full-blown wedding and instead get married at the Marriage Bureau, City Clerk’s Office.  This is an image of the groom being groomed.

Chinatown Pedestrian

I was walking around a bit in Chinatown yesterday morning seeing what promising light and environments were around that may yield interesting images for my “Vague Recollections” series.  I was intrigued by a white wall lit directly by the already bright morning light at 9am.  I liked the bit of graffiti that was on the […]

Maintenance Man With Hose

I had just finished shooting landscapes of Carl Schurz Park and was walking across the street when I saw this maintenance man hosing down the front of an apartment building.  I photographed him hosing a door, then walked up and asked if I could take a picture of him looking into the camera.  After I […]

Young Man in Union Square

I took my camera with me as I ran out the door in a hurry last Saturday.  I decided at a spur of the moment to leave my apartment early so that I could take advantage of the sunny weather and spend time shooting in and around Union Square Park.  When I got there and […]

Times Square 1

I was in Times Square this morning seeing what the light was like.  It was beautiful.  I got there a little later than I wanted, around 8:30am.  But I still got some nice shots.  Here is one.  It was luck that I got the guy on the moped situated perfectly in the frame.  

2 Women at a Bus Stop

This scene caught my eye immediately.  The simplicity of it with a minimal number of elements and a basic composition.  The green really pops but doesn’t overwhelm the photograph, I think because of the weight of the shadow.  

Columbus Circle Crosswalk

This image was shot from the third floor looking down at a crosswalk.  I composed it so that a loop is visually implied that is cut off by the right edge of the frame, but one’s mind connects the dots, so to speak, and closes the loop.  I overexposed this in the camera to get […]

Subway Atrium 1

I appreciate the way the city has designed individual subway stations and integrated public art into the spaces.  Not all of them are home runs, but many are just wonderful.  The 74th Street/Broadway subway station in Queens, which connects several lines to one another, is a good example.   The station atrium is a very […]

Waiting In Line

This is one of the subway stations I pass on the train almost daily on my way into Manhattan.  I had not been into it because until recently I had no reason to.  I was immediately struck by the light that comes through the windows and colored glass of a 3 story atrium.  I took […]

MoMA Lobby 2

This is one of the few images so far in the “Visual Whispers” series that I have not cropped.  This is because I typically have not been able to fully anticipate how the image will look once I have a chance to see an enlarged image closer to what it will look like as a […]

Pedestrians at Orlando Airport

This image was shot at Orlando International Airport.  I had a couple of hours to kill so I walked around with my 5D trying to find interesting tableaus.  I found the sun enveloping a large glass vestibule where the train comes in from other terminals and thought I would catch something when people exited the […]
