The trees speak for themselves.
This shot was taken around 1990 when 42nd street was shut down to get ready for it’s renovation. Before they actually began the facelift they painted all the buildings these bright colors. It only looked like this for a relatively short time. Next came the Las Disney that it is today.
Two of my image were nominated in the 2016 Black and White Spider Awards. The one above in the People category and another in the silhouette category. Both are posted on my Facebook page.

From my NYC Wall Art Series. A bit of Beethoven.
Nor sure exactly what was going on here but it sure was intriguing. One moment in time . . .
This is a blog by The Museum of the City of NY about my NYC street photography during the mid 1970’s. Recently 18 of my photos were taken into the permanent collection at the museum. Currently two of them are being shown in a new acquisitions show titled From Teaspoons to Titanic: Recent Acquisitions, on display through December 18th. It’s a wonderful museum, go check it out . . .
I shot this in upstate NY at an outdoor rodeo just before these twins sang the national anthem. Such a weird juxtaposition. This was shot on film and processed in Photoshop and Topaz software.

I took these photos at the Democratic National Convention in New York City right outside of Madison Square Garden where the convention was held. At the time it didn’t even occur to me that I was able to shoot this close to the convention with no credentials or hassles from any type of security. Today I wouldn’t be able to get within blocks of a convention. Man, have times changed . . .
Both of these images are in the permanent collection at the Museum of the City of New York.
