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.

10-17-12 City Nights

Cities, like cats, will reveal themselves at night.

Rupert Brooke

I haven’t shot in midtown at night for a while. I need to do so more often. It is one of my great pleasures…


Travel Theme: Night

Ailsa’s theme this week was night…

6-30-12 …1 WTC

Hot night last night. After dinner in downtown we (Roy, Anne, Katherine and I) took a walk to the World Trade Center site. I didn’t have the camera but here is an iPhone pic.

and since one iPhone pictures deserves another. A view of the Hudson from April 16th


5-4-12 The Dark End Of The Street

Here is a long and silent street.
I walk in blackness and I stumble and fall
and rise, and I walk blind, my feet
trampling the silent stones and the dry leaves.
Someone behind me also tramples, stones, leaves:
if I slow down, he slows;
if I run, he runs I turn : nobody.
Everything dark and doorless,
only my steps aware of me,
I turning and turning among these corners
which lead forever to the street
where nobody waits for, nobody follows me,
where I pursue a man who stumbles
and rises and says when he sees me : nobody.

Octavio Paz

I'll go check it out. Wait here. I'll be right back.

What the second dead guy in a horror flick always says.


5-4-11 A Cold Night On The River

What makes a river so restful to people is that it doesn’t have any doubt — it is sure to get where
it is going, and it doesn’t want to go anywhere else.
Hal Boyle


I wasn’t able to get to the river until late last night. I had a project to handle in the morning, an interview in the afternoon and a class last night and it was pouring when I got up. I didn’t make it down to the river until almost 10 pm.

We moved back into mid-April weather…rainy and cold.  The river was almost deserted but it was a great way to end a very long day… the river almost always calms my mind.

I  shot at 3200 ASA. This is pretty grainy and there is a real color shift.  I love the way the camera sees things at night…

Addendum to 5/3/11 Post:

Several people have told me they didn’t understand yesterday’s post. I guess I just assumed everyone knows the movie This Is Spinal Tap or at least has been exposed to this scene…Spinal Tap – Stonehenge… oops, my bad.  Moving along…


4-1-11 The Atlantic Sturgeon (is not in this picture)

Had not shot the river at night.

Since this shot is Katherine’s choice from the shots taken today, I thought including information on The Atlantic Sturgeon was appropriate.   The  information is courtesy of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.
