11-4-14 New York City Cliche

I met with a new client tonight. She lives in Trumpland around West 70th St and the Hudson.  After finishing up I decided to walk along the river and get some night shots. It is a pretty night, warmish but with wind. Without a tripod, avoiding camera shake was problematic but I think I came up with a few good images. Before I left though I followed the mantra…(and this is the only “rule” I never break)… I looked down, I looked around, I looked behind me and I looked up.

Lo and behold.

9-27-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime (Que Sera Sera)

Nighttime

Told you I would be back.  I love the night, I always have. I love the different feel, the texture of the air, the shadows, the mystery.  I also like the night because no one else is around to interrupt your train of thought, to demand answers to questions you have answered already, to tell you that this project is a crisis and that email must be answered. Eh, I am a little bit grouchy today. Too many people wanting things, answers etc. Que Sera Sera.

Anyway, I love the night and I especially love the night on Blackfish Creek in Wellfleet, Cape Cod, MA.

This weeks challenge is: Texture. (You knew that)

A little change in ISO and a little change in shutter speed certainly changes the texture of the water in Blackfish Creek.

5-27-14 Memorial Night Walk Through Central Park

A holiday Monday and the crosstown buses are running infrequently. I had spent 3 hours working with a client on the deep east side in the 70’s and decided to walk to the west side subway through the park. It was a gorgeous night. I took the 72nd Street transverse past the Bethesda Fountain to Strawberry Fields. Walk with me…
