My recent interview in JustLuxe.
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.
I shot this a few years ago at Grand Central Station and forgot all about it until I was looking through a folder on my computer of street photos. This time around it really struck me. A great subject with beautiful light and shadow . . .
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.
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 believe this was shot with a 14mm fisheye lens. I’d check but i sold the lens a few years ago. I really like this one . . .
From the peace and tranquility of my previous blog to the subways of New York City. I guess my vacation is over . . .
