9-13-14 Weekly Photo Challenge Humanity (2) _iPhone

“Nobody realizes that some people expend tremendous energy merely to be normal.”

Albert Camus

“One love, one heart, one destiny.”

Bob Marley

I bet that it is no surprise that I am revisiting Humanity. My first go is Here.

This time I thought I would iPhone it. The first three shots are from a fascinating opening I went to tonight. The show is called  the“Bronx Artist Documentary Project“.

It is a very simple idea “The Bronx Artist Documentary Project is a borough-wide collaborative endeavor involving Bronx photographers documenting Bronx visual artists at work in their studios or other Bronx venues.

The results are really good and moving in some cases. I would have gone to see the exhibit in any case but since I know three of the photographers (Angel Franco, Ricky Flores, Robert Fass) and one of the documented artists (Helena Starcevic) I went tonight. If you are in NYC between now and October 8th, you should try to check it out.

The second set of pictures are from my visit to The New Museum.

9-30-13 The Island

“Sometimes, from beyond the skyscrapers, the cry of a tugboat finds you in your insomnia, and you remember that this desert of iron and cement is an island.”
Albert Camus

Photoville closed last night. One of the final events was a workshop put on by Resource Magazine.  Alexandra Niki, co-Founder of Resource Magazine and RETV, and Adam Sherwin, Executive Producer and co-Founder of RETV ran a seminar/workshop on “Build Your Online Presence In One Day.” Excellent information. If you have a chance to hear them speak, take it.

Exiting Photoville I walked into this view. Couldn’t resist.

I think the helicopter in the upper right quadrant in the photo above looks like the Starship Enterprise when I zoom in. Let me know if you agree

2-6-13 Travel Theme: (The) Shadow (Knows) #2

“There is no sun without shadow, and it is essential to know the night.”

Albert Camus

I wanted to revisit Ailsa’s travel theme this week and take it in a completely different direction then my first attempt.

These are shadows you can find around the city of New York.
