9-22-13 Weekly Photo Challenge: From Lines To Patterns: Hoyt Street, Brooklyn Edition

This weeks Photo Challenge is From Lines To Patterns. My first attempt is here.

Last night my long time friend Chris Havens held a party to celebrate a zero birthday.  His apartment has a roof deck. I took this picture at about 8:30 pm. I thought it came at the challenge obliquely but fit it well.

5-7-13 Brighton Beach – The Elevated

After we left Coney on Saturday we headed to Brighton Beach and had a great dinner at a Russian Restaurant (I showed a picture of it the other day). I used our time there to do some twilight shooting of the Elevated.

4-17-13 Decisions

I have been working all week to finalize my submissions to The Fence At Photoville. The maximum amount of images in a series that you can submit is 6. They say you can have a series as small as two pictures but, in my mind, a series is a minimum of three images.

Anyway it is decision making time. I am down to 8-10 images per category and have to make the decisions tonight or at the latest tomorrow by noon so I can upload by the deadline.

Here are the shots I am choosing between for the theme of Play. I am certain of 4 and can’t decide whether to go with my gut and say: “ok, that’s all folks” or go with my other gut and slip in two more.

2-23-13 It’s Not Right

I went to Brooklyn yesterday to visit some friends. They have three kids, a son and two daughters, and I have some really fun images of the girls “getting married”. I was planning on using them for the blog today.

I posted a few of the pictures on FB and then I made a mistake.  I started thinking. On FB I had set the privacy level to friends of friends but I can’t control who can see Quotidian Hudson and I don’t want to control who can see it.

Sadly there are some really bad pieces of work out there who troll the internet.  For what? Pictures of young children.

Here is a picture of Borough Hall in Brooklyn and a shot taken from Columbus Park.

1-27-13 Star Star

Went to visit my friend David last night. While he was putting his daughters to bed I noticed this on his wall and had to shoot it.

I do seem to be in a black and white mood these days.

11-1-12 Come On Baby Let’s Go Downtown

I took a walk from 14th and 7th down to South Ferry today, mainly along the river. South Ferry is the southern tip of Manhattan, where you pick up the Staten Island Ferry (not running) and Liberty Tour ships (not running) as well as the terminus of the “1″ train (not running this far south) and the “N” and “R” trains (they officially stop at Whitehall – “N” trains not running this far south and “R” trains running only in Brooklyn).

I took the “1″ to Penn Station, then a random bus to 14th Street.

Walk with me.

A lot of fishermen out today. Despite strong warnings of pollution in The Hudson and the Harbor, they were all intending to eat what they caught.

10-11-12 A Walk Around Coney Island

B&H in association with ICP offered a Coney Island walk led by Harvey Stein (you may remember I took a class called Photographing People from him this summer). Harvey has been shooting at Coney for a gazillion years (42 actually) and has two books published on the subject, so he knows the area pretty well.  What better way to spend 10-11-12?

It was an absolutely gorgeous day and the 50? 60? of us jumped right in to shooting. We all went our own ways of course. This was my journey.

Harvey explains the scene.

6-5-12 Carroll Gardens, Gowanus and Prospect Park aka Venus? Nah, Brooklyn

Urban Utopias (a class for which I am the TA ) went to Brooklyn today. It was good shooting weather, partly to mostly overcast but not uniform, “not too hot and not too cold” said Goldilocks.

We started in Caroll Gardens at Eco Brooklyn which is an “innovative green building company” with a great roof garden and a lovely backyard.

Then we moved on to the Gowanus Canal which is on the EPA‘s Superfund National Priorities List. The sign in the first picture tells the story…

Then we took a 20 minute walk

to Grand Army Plaza and Prospect Park

My attempt at creating the “feel” of the Hudson River School without using Photoshop

Of course I had hoped to end this post with pictures of the Transit of Venus but, while the clouds broke long enough for me to see it through the nifty safety glasses the Columbia University Astronomy Department provided, I did not have the time to set up and get the shot…

However, I did see this little devil viewing the event

Now, if you blow up this next shot and run it through your super CSI computer equipped with all the latest computer enhancement devices, I can promise you with almost 100% certainty…you still won’t see Venus.

For a different (yet similar) view of the Transit of Venus check out Where’s my backpack?

5-19-12 Brooklyn Block Party

I went out to visit my friends David and Jenna and their three kids (all under the age of 5) this afternoon. Had a great time catching up while the kids scrambled around the living room then went for a walk to a block party nearby…

Brooklyn Bluegrass

I will but I won’t yet

and, when the kids were sufficiently wiped out, went back to their place for beer, chips and guacamole.  Got home about 9pm and Abigail and I hung out and watched SNL. Mick Jagger was actually a good host. His numbers with Arcade Fire and The Foo Fighters were excellent, the one with Jeff Beck was great musically but…odd. and the goodbye to Kristen Wiig (who is leaving the show) was quite touching.
