10-4-14 Borough Walk-Sept 28: Williamsburg – Hipster Heaven to Jerusalem

Last Sunday I was the TA for the first of ICP’s fall Borough Walks. This one was led by the incomparable Andrew Lichtenstein, master of the Borough Walk.  (Damn good photographer and raconteur, as well) We went all about the neighborhood: gentrified; gentrifying; unsure; and old school Williamsburg. Many extraordinary sites around every corner, as block by block the neighborhood shifted.

Take a walk with me.

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.

9-29-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime 3 – Brooklyn Edition

Back to Nighttime.

I still have not posted my favorite night picture but I was in Williamsburg last night with The ICP class: From Hipster Heaven to New Jerusalem, led by Andrew Lichtenstein and this just jumped into my camera. Simple and clean.

Long time readers of QH may remember my write up of the brilliant Coney Island/Brighton Beach walk Andrew led back in May of 2013 or the Lower East Side walk in October of 2013.

This walk was equally good. Pictures to follow. Someday…

10-22-11 It’s Not Quite Your Birthday

Abigail turns 15 on Tuesday (Really? Dayum). Her being a sophomore in high school means we won’t be doing anything big that day, so instead we are doing smaller weekend things around the date.

Today we went to Five Pointz (pictures on Flickr by late Sunday, I hope) and then to Hipsterville (i.e. Williamsburg) to Dumont Burgers for some damn fine burgers. Then we came home and she met up with some friends and went to see The Three Musketeers. The review: One of the most unintentionally funny movies she has ever seen.

All that means that I did not get to the river until well after dark tonight.  I do enjoy pushing my little camera to its limits.
