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.

A Dying Pigeon

A pigeon lies dying on the sidewalk in the early morning light of Winter.

I was out early a couple of mornings ago with my camera on my way to the 7 train through Flushing Meadows-Corona Park.  At the entrance to the park, and beneath the huge overpass of the Van Wyck Expressway,  I saw a pigeon lying on the ground.  It was an odd sight for two reasons: […]

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 […]

2 Images of Elizabeth Street Garden

Diptych, Elizabeth Street Garden, Little Italy, New York

Two images taken at the Elizabeth Street Garden, a community space maintained by volunteers that provide a place to unwind and relax from the stress and strain of urban living.  The garden is filled with architectural and garden artifacts, antiques, or junk – depending on your mindset.   I especially like this two vignettes.  

New Image Added

I try to go through my images for a couple of hours whenever I think of it, which isn’t often enough, to organize and keyword, and to see what images I passed over that may now be of interest to me.  Lightroom is a great program for me to keep my images organized, and it […]

I just read this article from the NY Times, Looking at Photos the Master Never Saw, about the process of editing and curating the new exhibition at the Met Museum on Gary Winogrand and wanted to share it.  The article addresses several issues that this exhibition stirs up, one of which is the thorny issue […]

A Lifeguard Station

I was disappointed that I did not post any blogs while I was down in Cabarete, the Dominican Republic for a couple of weeks.  I was on a crappy laptop with spotty wi-fi (that will be my excuse and I’m sticking with it).  But I’m back now and wanting to share some images with you. […]

New Leica T

I am pretty ambivalent regarding Leica digital cameras, and I am willing to admit that this may be partly due to my unhappy experience with the early models of Leica dig cams – they fell short within their respective price ranges of what Japanese manufacturers were offering.   Although from what I understand they have […]

Train Picture — Hong Kong Photo — National Geographic Photo of the Day

This is the sort of photograph that really connects with me viscerally. It is beautifully executed with a high degree of technical skill (f-stop, shutter speed,depth of field). It is also a wonderful example of what, for me, photography does best: photography can honestly portray the quotidian in a fresh way and elevate a moment. […]

A Reconstruction of Memory

I ran across an article in the New York Times “LENS” blog of the photographer Johan Willner’s work.  They are some very quiet but powerful images.  The article is titled A Reconstruction of Memory.  Check it out.
