I was on vacation last week in my Upstate NY home where i spend a lot of time fly fishing for wild Brown Trout right outside my front door. I shot this with my iPhone just before I left the water. There’s something about casting for trout during the magic hour that can’t be described. I’ll let this photo do the talking . . .

Another goodie from the NYC subway system. To me this image illustrates the beauty of photography. Most people would never really see this but as viewed through a camera the viewer is forced to deal with disparate elements.

The homeless situation in NYC shows no signs of abating. This was shot on the subway platform at 28th Street and Broadway on my iPhone and proceed using Snapseed.

Another interesting observation on the NYC subways. Captured on my iPhone and processed with Snapseed. I’d love to know what’s on that kid’s mind . . .

Winter Trees

There’s something about winter trees that captivates me. They have a strength and beauty that you just don’t see when they are covered with leaves. I shot this in color and processed into black and white using Topaz software. I also used Topaz Adjust to bring out the clouds and add to the dark mood of the image. At least for now,  I can’t stop looking at it.

 

My 1970’s Street Photos in The Museum of the City of NY

I’m proud to announce that 18 of my gritty street photos from NYC in the mid 1970’s have been accepted into the permanent collection at the Museum of the City of New York. Little did I know that as a 25 year old roaming the mean streets that these photos would end up in a museum. I first approached them with this work about 3-4 years ago and I can tell you that persistence pays off.

I shot this during a winter drive in upstate NY. Shot in color and processed into B&W using Topaz software. Whenever I the a shot like this it reminds me that there are potential great photos all around us, it’s just a matter of seeing.
