7-11-14 David H Wells – Photographer

I just finished up a week as a TA for a course taught by David H Wells at ICP called “The Photographic Tools For Travel Photography”. He is a great teacher and photographer with an insane amount of publications, awards, grants etc. over his career. Click on his name above to get a small taste.

The class was both a lecture and practice class. We went out every day to shoot and then critiqued the work the next morning. Here are a few of my shots that made the grade…although we all agreed I was veering dangerously close to street photography and probably crossed the line in several cases…

6-30-14 Pride Parade NYC – A Taste Of Honey

Yesterday was a great day in NYC. The annual Pride parade which brings out people from every borough and walk of life to participate and view.  If you couldn’t make it here is a slide show of a small piece of the parade.

6-12-14 Epilogue For An Eel

I thought about including this yesterday as the ending to my slide show (here) but felt it worked better as an epilogue. I suppose today’s title could have been “The Tale of the Cormorant” but I liked the alliteration.

5-29-14 Travel Theme: Metal (Deus Ex Machina Version)

You may recall from yesterday that Ailsa’s travel theme this week is metal. My first go was just yesterday (here). I have been out of the house since about 6:30 this morning and had no idea what I would blog about. I went to download some pictures from Tuesday and the answer struck me, like the sudden appearance of a rich uncle the hero never knew he had, in a bad 20′s young adult book. NYC has lots of metal but one thing truly stands out…the tourists best friend and worst nightmare…

”Photography is about finding out what can happen in the frame. When you put four edges around some facts, you change those facts.” – Garry Winogrand
