06-15-15 Double Your Pleasure Or At Least Your Fun

While I waited for a few students from the ICP Borough Walk through Brooklyn Heights and Brooklyn Bridge Park to meet us at Jane’s Carousel, I thought I would play with some double exposures at bride central – the boardwalk in front of the carousel. I was there for about 45 minutes and saw 5 wedding dresses with groom tux accompaniment and three engagement shoots happening…in a town this big you would think…

Nah, it is a pretty place.

10-2-14 Best Laid Plans

Go to hell quickly. I expected to be writing about the ICP Williamsburg walk and showing 15 of so photographs from it but between an internet and router outage and four hours on the phone with various companies getting that fixed and then another family computer problem, here it is 11:30 and I should have been in bed an hour ago…

Here is a picture that made it into the finals but did not make the cut.

4-14-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Monument

Monument.  (first go is here)

Back in 2008 (before the bubble burst and the economy crashed) New York City was graced with some monumental artwork.  “New York City Waterfalls” by Olafur Eliasson consisted of four waterfalls placed in the East River. They ran every day from June 26 through October 13 between the hours of 7am and 10pm. It cost 15 million dollars, all paid by private funds. The bulk of the money (over 13 million) was supplied by Bloomberg LP – thank heavens while he was Mayor Mike Bloomberg had no input into the company!

They were a lot of fun while they were around.

The Accidental Cootchie Mama is less than 15 miles from completing her 444 mile walk of The Natchez Trace. If I haven’t mentioned it before… 🙂 … you should read her book: To Live Forever An After Life Journey of Meriwether Lewis.

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.

Manhattan Skyline - Night-Brooklyn Pier 5-2

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
