Stop and Smell the Flowers

Just sort of kicking back tonight, playing around with some images… Came up with this photograph which came out okay for a quickie. Love shooting images from low or unexpected points of view, just makes for an interesting shot. My dog Chloe, just bathed and blow dried. She was slobbered today at the dog park.…

Yellow Flowers on Black

Simple and colorful. My wife picks the flowers from the garden. The life span of these little beauties is very short. My project for the day was to capture the cut flowers in a photograph so they would live forever. No manipulation of any kind except the faux photographic border. Natural sunlight beaming through the…

Digital or Film?

The question of questions – film or digital? I personally use both, its like using oil verses pencil, two very different mediums. I love digital, easy, amazing image quality, ability to shoot in extreme lighting conditions, and the list goes on. But, film gives you warmth, a bit of unpredictability in what your end result…

NYC Speed Challenged Pigeon

Just kicking back in Washington Square, heart of the NYU campus life. Warm spring day, people out, music, lawn bowling, dancing and in particular this slow motion pigeon. It was very strange – the heart of a very fast area of New York City, this one lone pigeon was just chilling. Totally unaware of all…

After a couple of Beers – "no worries"

My lovely wife at you guessed it Outback Steak House – “No Worries” Fun pictures using one’s cell phone. She looks like an advertising campaign – The bread and butter is fantastic, washed down with an apple martini or a cold Fosters, Yum. The service is with all fairness, really awful or as my wife…

Horrible Darien Ct Boat Attack

I shot a series of this man kayaking, just kept on firing the camera shutter. When view quickly looks as if the fishing boat is eating up the small craft. My only manipulation was to remove some of the color to beam more light on the main subject. Really like the composition of this photograph.…

Coney Island Couple…flying hairpiece

Coney Island Couple is one of my favorite photographs, sold a few of these over the years. Coming across this couple was a great joy. They talked for what seemed hours, enjoying each others company and the beautiful summer day. I only shot two prints – never want to interfere with people’s privacy. The funny…

Portrait of House Kitty – Armonk, NY

Portrait of a wonderful cat I came across in Armonk, NY. This little guy was packed with personality, and he was not camera shy. I took several sample photographs, put my results seemed flat and uninspiring. Started to play with the exposure setting and decided to blow out the contrast by three stops, on the…

It is now legal to create, display and sell art throughout NYC on streets and in Parks without any license or permit. An advocacy group, A.R.T.I.S.T. spent the past 13 years winning you…
