Back on February 1, 2011 a mile or so up the river was pretty misty as well:

2-21-14 You Do What You Must

Drove to Boston this afternoon. Horrible traffic. Arrived at my parent’s house to discover their wireless is not working. They didn’t know this. I will try to get this fixed tomorrow but in the meantime I can’t upload any of the photographs I intended.

Luckily I did take a picture of the cause of the traffic.

2-3-14 Mayor Drops Groundhog…8″ Of Snow

What else needs to be said?

I had hoped to shoot from the GWB today but the Port Authority had the walkway closed when I arrived at 9am so I took a walk under the bridge.

1-12-14 Illuminated Travel Theme

“Freedom of thought is best promoted by the gradual illumination of men’s minds which follows from the advance of science.”

Charles Darwin

Illuminated. That is the theme Ailsa picked this week. Before I came upon the burning bank yesterday I had been down by the Hudson. Now yesterday was a typical April day in New York City. Warmish, rainy, and as dusk rolled in, so did the fog. However there was enough illumination for me to shoot.

Here, I illuminate other views.

1-6-14 In A Fog

It is foggy in NYC today as the temperature starts to drop.

I have spent much of the past two days inside the computer and find myself in a private fog. I thought I would celebrate both by pulling out a few of my fog pictures.

A wet but lovely spring day and evening in NYC today – which is odd given it is mid November…

7-22-13 Homage to Broken Light

Talkin’ to myself and feelin’ old
Sometimes I’d like to quit
Nothing ever seems to fit
Hangin’ around
Nothing to do but frown
Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down.

What I’ve got they used to call the blues
Nothin’ is really wrong
Feelin’ like I don’t belong
Walkin’ around
Some kind of lonely clown
Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down.

I don’t even particularly like The Carpenters and here I am quoting them…

After I read the post on today’s Broken Light: A Photography Collective, the picture below taken on May 22nd, another foggy and muggy day, came to mind.

If you are not familiar with the work of Broken Light I truly believe you should check them out. Unlike Samantha Pugsley, today’s Broken Light photographer, I love rain and fog. It is the sort of weather that invigorates me and pulls me out of my blues (“pace” Karen Carpenter). I think Samantha and I might be able to have an interesting dialogue via photograph on the subject.  Feelings are feelings and there is no right or wrong but the contrast might be enlightening.

So…

One of the things that I love about this picture is the way, to my eye,  the tug and barge look like a submarine in a World War 2 picture creeping up on the Circle Line boat. But you know Bogie is the captain of the Circle Line and will figure out an answer with the help of Lauren Bacall.


5-30-13 Fight The Technology

“A computer is like an Old Testament god, with a lot of rules and no mercy”

Joseph Campbell

I am reputed to be pretty good with technology and able to operate new (to me) software quickly. Maybe so…

I have been spending the evening looking at/working with/cursing out various book publishing sites. Blurb, Adorama, A&I,  to name three. These sites are supposed to make your life easier?

If they say so…

Anyway a few of the pictures I worked on earlier today. My apologies for any recent repeats but as I close in on finalizing this work, the field of choices narrows.


5-23-13 A Chance Request

“I am trying to be unfamiliar with what I’m doing.”

John Cage

In the past week or so I received a number of lovely comments off-line about the Quotidian Hudson. In the course of etalking with these folks I received three requests. One person commented that I had not shown any river art in a good while. The second said that they missed my fogs (I think they meant pictures and not my mind but…). The third asked if I would shoot more water. Wednesday, chance brought these requests together in such a way that I believe I was able to accommodate them all and chance threw in another little treat.
