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 […]


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.


What Is It To Be a Photographer?

Personally, I don’t think owning and taking pictures makes one a photographer.  I will preface my remarks by saying I am old enough now and have been in the commercial photography business long enough now to sound like an “old-timer.”  I can remember when you could actually get an appointment with creatives to show them […]


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: […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


New Image From Second Impressions

It is exciting to create an image that I love.  This is one such image.  The composition, simplicity, and mystery of it all speak to me.


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 […]


Thanks to LinkedIn Feedback

I have been getting some great feedback regarding a body of work I have begun that I am tentatively calling “Visual Whispers” I posted on LinkedIn asking for feedback in the group Fine Art Photographers and got some intelligent comments and critiques, which I am taking to heart.  One of the hardest parts for me is […]


Smiling Man on Bus

I have to share this image.  I was taking the bus back from downtown Flushing, a short 5 minute ride, and this man got on the bus and sat across from me.  I was attracted to the early morning light that was striking his face and his big childlike smile (or, demonic, depending on your […]


Ordering Take Away in Flushing, Queens

I went over to Main Street before sunrise this morning to find something to photograph.  I didn’t know when I left that it was only 19 degrees out and windy, so I stayed out as long as I could stand.  I got this shot, which I like as an accompanying image to what will be […]
