10-7-13 Travel Theme: Height – Lower East Side Edition

Saturday was ICP’s first Boro (Borough) Walk of the fall. We went through the Lower East Side and into Chinatown where Jacob Riis had done much of his landmark work. Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week is height. These two photographs do not have much to do with him but I think hit the heights.

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.

8-12-13 Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot – Two Ways Part Deux

Here is my second pass at the Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot-Two Ways.   The first is here. As you may recall the challenge was to get a horizontal and vertical of the same scene/thing/etc., in the same time frame.

While thinking about tonight’s post I realized that some of you who have been kind enough to visit on a regular basis must be familiar with my jumping on hobby horses and not letting a subject go into I’ve ridden it into the dirt.  Tonight is another example of that. I am glad for your patience.

El Anatsui has a piece on the High Line. I showed a version of it yesterday in the iPhone post. The piece is called Broken Bridge II. Why II? It was shown in Paris in 2012 in a different configuration.

It is the largest piece he has ever done.

Here we go…horizontal!Broken Bridges 2 - El Anatsui-0071
