If they want it they can take it, they don’t need no reason why
If they want it they can take it, they don’t need no reason why
The night they took you from me I saw the broken window and I cried

17-02-27 Computer Simulation (Are We One?)

I have been reading a lot about this concept over the past six months. The most recent was just today in the New Yorker. Don’t worry, I am not going to write a 10 page essay explaining the theory. Here is the link to the New Yorker article speaking about it.

I have been walking around NYC a lot and came across an art work that brought the concept to mind. It certainly looks like a classic sci-fi image of our programmers…

I spent about 9 hours at the NYC March on Saturday. Did some marching, lots of yelling and a massive amount of photographing.

Here are a small selection of my favorite images as of today…

I suggest playing the song (at bottom) as you browse…Click on the images to enlarge.

16-09-08 Questions: I Have Questions

I went to a photo critique at the B&H Event Space today. I showed one of my favorite in-camera double exposure images from the summer…

This was a group crit lead by four very talented folks, two from the B&H Event Space and two from the Soho Photo Gallery. Several of them felt it was too green. One suggested de-saturating the image…

two others suggested taking it into black and white…

So I figured let us see. You go to crits to learn something and get other’s opinions and ideas, yes? So I thought I would give it a whirl.
Granted, I have not spent a lot of time tweaking the two alternates but I didn’t just push a button and say, enough, either.

I would love to hear anyone’s thoughts on which image they prefer.

16-09-05 Cape Cod – Wellfleet – End of “Summer” AKA WPC-Mirror

Katherine and I took a week off and headed to Wellfleet (alone!!!) before depositing the future back at college – a freakin’ Junior????

We had a delightful time

Meanwhile the Challenge this week is mirror and, using a bit of license, I think the following images “mirror” our week.

16-08-15 WPC: Fun (Hudson River Edition)

RSJohnson_1608141608149938Last night we took a sunset journey down the Hudson to the Statue of Liberty aboard the Schooner America 2.0 run by Classic Harbor Line. Some thunder, a little rain and a great deal cooler than the 94 degrees (heat index 107) that it was on shore.

Fun? Indeed it was.

16-07-14 Natural Light

I took a Natural Light workshop last week taught by Andrew French. I had the opportunity to work with several of my favorite models as well as some folks new to me.  Today I am featuring Brittany Sanders in a featurette I think I’ll call American Woman
