Stuck With the Seagulls For the Holidays

Seagulls collect on the pavement at sunrise in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park.

I was planning to go home for a week to see my family over the Christmas holidays.  Unfortunately I had the bad timing of getting very ill the night before I was scheduled to fly home.  So, I stayed here in New York City in a bit of a melancholy mood.   I woke up […]


Playing Basketball at Sunset

I live in Flushing, Queens in New York City across the street from the Flushing Meadows-Corona Park.  The park was originally created for the 1939 and 1964 New York World’s Fair.  It is now very much a working-class park.  It is used mostly by Asian and Hispanic immigrants who live around the area.  Families set […]


Forest Wrecks Gallery

Old Abandoned Panel Truck.

I had forgotten this gallery is on my website (but not listed, so no one can access it except me, my government, and probably some kid just about to begin boarding school). Anyway, I haven’t visited it in a long time.  I was a bit underwhelmed by it.  So I have decided to take a look […]


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 […]


Man Running in the Light

I went to the park across the street from my apartment to see what I could find in the late afternoon light of Spring.  Some potential scenarios that I thought may work for this body of images, like shooting soccer players during a game, didn’t pan out.  Once I got the images back and processed […]


Times Square at 42nd St.

I am trying to find areas in NYC that may have potential to create imagery for my Second Impressions body of work that I am currently working on.  I think Times Square is one of those places because of the crowds, the lights, and the colors.  I will go back quite a few times to […]


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 […]


Girl With Hoodie

I’m obsessed with rendering scenes out of focus.  I love how – in the absence of detail – emphasis is placed on motion, light, color, and the body language and gesture of the figures.  Because the viewer has to fill in the blanks a bit I feel like the image is more engaging as we […]


Follow the Light

Another new image from the evolving series, “Visual Whispers”    All of the images presented in the series have a minimal amount of Photoshop except for the same controls one would use in an analog image; contrast, color, value, etc.  Some images I will clone out distracting aspects of an image that I could not […]


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 […]


Ascending to the Light

I have been shooting a bit more for my “Visual Whispers” body of work and I am getting excited about where it is going visually. I am figuring out what I want to explore as it relates to color, form, composition, light, and how much I can abstract the figures and environment before the picture […]


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.


Picture of Motel Window Curtain

I shot this from inside a motel room in Florida.  I like the abstract quality of the image.  I love the quality of the light and how the sunlight filters through the polyester fabric to create the soft hues that go from blue, blue-green, and into a light gold.
