8-8-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture

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.

ISO 6400 – f/5.3 – Shutter: 1/2 second

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…

4-10-14 Night Shot

Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems. -

Rainer Maria Rilke

 

Last night it felt like spring. Almost everyone on the streets had clearly made a decision to dress as if it was 5 degrees warmer than it was and the wind was blowing 5 mph less. I just decided to wander around with the camera and play a bit.

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.
