11-13-13 Boro Walk -2013-It’s A Wrap

All Borough walks are concluded for 2013. I thought I would throw together a gallery of the 10 walks. One shot of the photographer and one shot that represented something about the Borough or walk – to me.

These surely do not qualify as pictures for an exhibit. These are tokens as much for my memories as for any other reason. The only borough not represented is Staten Island…but hey, they are used to being an afterthought! So, as always, click on any picture in the gallery to jump to full size.

10-18-13 Weekly Photo Challenge: Hue

“…share a photograph with a prominent color (or assortment of colors) that reveals more about you.”

The Weekly Photo Challenge this week is Hue.  The quote above is from the directions.

Now, to my mind every photograph especially the ones that the photographer shares with the world “reveals more about you.” However, your mileage may vary.

In any case here are several views o’ hue.

Boro Walk

5-7-13 Brighton Beach – The Elevated

After we left Coney on Saturday we headed to Brighton Beach and had a great dinner at a Russian Restaurant (I showed a picture of it the other day). I used our time there to do some twilight shooting of the Elevated.

5-6-13 Travel Theme: Dance – Coney Island “Boro Walk” Edition

Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week is  Dance.   You can see my first attempt here.

I believe I mentioned last week that I am the teaching assistant for a series of Boro Walks being done at ICP.   Saturday was the second walk.   Andrew Lichtenstein, a wonderful documentary photographer led this walk. You can see his work here.

The walk was through Coney Island and Brighton Beach. Lots of great photo opportunities there but this post is about dance!  Every Saturday (and Sunday I believe) there is a dance party on the Boardwalk.  Here are just a few of the dancers.

and just for fun, here is a picture of Andrew leading a discussion on the subway ride out…
