I Saw a some bicycles on the sidewalk at night, locked up, and decided to take some photos using long exposures and camera movement in different patterns. After doing my artwork in Photoshop, this is the result.
Taken from Brooklyn Bridge Park.
Check out our beautiful Flag near the base of the Manhattan Bridge.
I think perhaps the subject has more impact in Black and White>>??
I love puddles.....One only has to look down to look up. There is an amazing and easily overlooked world that lies above, so in the absence of puddles, remember to stop and look up once in a while. :-)
Overly simple composition, with lots of lines, caught my eye.
You have to love NY street art.
If I could only hear this conversation. Taken at a red light from my car window.
This pensive pizza delivery person waits for the light to change, as did I while I took this photo from my car window in Brooklyn Heights on the way to Dumbo.
I called this "Face to Face"
"Face to Face" color version.
I had some fun last weekend spending some time in Chinatown and then at San Gennaro feast in Little Italy, with a group of other NY photographers. Here are some of the pictures I took in Manhattan's Chinatown.
First Shearith Israel Cemetery - Located in Chinatown at St. James Place, just off Chatham Square. Having been built in 1683, this is the oldest Jewish cemetery in New York City.
That's Chinatown... lots of fish for sale.
This obliging store worker holds up a live frog which is for sale. I can't help but feel bad for all the live critters in the barrels... crabs, turtles, frogs, etc.
I like the perspective created by this lampost, and the various lines and angles.
One of New York's Bravest poses with a few fellow photographers here in Chinatown.
It looks like this magazine has fallen between the cracks. Do you think the previous reader left this magazine for someone else to read, or is it simply a case of "stealth litter"? Hmmmmm, deep stuff :}
I had some fun at San Gennaro feast in Little Italy, with one or two other NY photographers. Here are some of the pictures I took along the way at San Gennaro where you certainly find some colorful characters.
Enjoying his Cigar was this gent from "Mulberry Street Cigars".
One proud dad and his little cute daughter at San Gennaro. Hey, dad's sure cheaper than a pony ride, and you go longer too!
Interesting face and eyes, even behind the specs.
A sweet and patient little girl getting her face painted.
I think someone is feeling good about the results. :-}
Ah ha, the face paint artist herself. She does a great job and the kids loved it.
Digging her adorable doggie.
Interesting way to take out your pet...what would the dog whisperer say about this one.
So I told him I would like to take his photo, and he said, I'd like a buck, I gave it to him, and voila. I respect entrepreneurship, and he was cool.
This little dude saw me shooting him, and shot me right back.
This cute little one felt she was supposed to smile, but just had some reservations when my big old camera pointed at her. Very cute indeed.
Why talk, we can text!
With all the hustle and bustle outside, this gent relaxes in a nice cool restaurant and reads his paper.
When I admired this nice Serbian girl's bicycle decor,
she said to me "I love my flowers". I like her style.
N.Y.'s Bravest kicking back during quiet time.
San Gennaro - dresses for sale.
I spotted this gentleman at the San Gennaro feast carrying a glass which happened to echo his jacket.....so I had to call him over for some photos and told him what I saw. He was cool about it as was his lady friend who called out " put up your arms so he can see them", which, as you can see, he did. They were a fun couple. I told her she was my honorary art director.
Like I said to him, you look so much better with this pretty lady by your side. He acknowledged.
It's the people and their good spirits that make San Gennaro fun.
