The Last Snowy Saturday

Lonely in the Subway

Decided to share a few images from this past Saturday.   Hopefully it will be the last snowy Saturday.  Went to Central Park early and then down to Union Square Farmers Market with a friend.  The last image was shot in Midtown before a meeting.

The Cloisters

Busts on an alter at The Cloisters in upper Manhattan.

An actress and I had an idea for a photo shoot.  We wanted a film noir feel to it and were looking for an other-worldly sense of place: something distinct but hard to place.  I thought of The Cloisters in upper Manhattan because unless you know of it you would not know it is in […]

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.

New Image in Location Portraits Portfolio

I added a new image to my online portfolio, “Location Portraits”.  It is of my friend Sean, a very talented performer.  We did a shoot a while ago and he wanted to go out on the fire escape to shoot a few.  It was in the middle of winter and very very cold out, but […]

A Chef and His Ingredients

I shot this at Bread’s Bakery near Union Square in Manhattan.  I was mostly photographing what goes on behind the scenes in the kitchen.  There is a lot of activity at this place and they put out great product.  Obviously the themes of this diptych are light and steam.  

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 […]

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 […]

Fuzzy People Picture

Until I have come up with a different name for this gallery and a better description of the body of work that I am trying to create I will continue to call it “Fuzzy People”, although that is a bit too flippant. This image was taken a few days ago early in the morning down […]

Tree and Chair Diptych

I love this diptych.  I like the interplay of shadows; the similar placement of the objects against a wall; the similar perspective from which they were shot; and I like that the three “colors” in the diptych are two primary colors and the secondary color that is created when those two primary colors are mixed.
