I could have been an album cover designer   2 comments

Instead, I’m happy to have simply inspired others. In this case, Fall Out Boy’s new album coming in January. Clearly, they must have seen my post from August featuring a hotel lobby in New York. ūüôā

Here is their album cover, and my image below:

Old-fashioned Gas Station   2 comments

This gas station sits at the outskirts of our little town, and doesn’t seem to get much traffic, but it keeps hanging in there, off the beaten path and not far from large-brand gas stations.

Times Square Memories (part 4)   Leave a comment

Another post of a series that I started when I worked in Manhattan. I love the excitement that the tourists bring to Times Square, each of them capturing their own private moment despite the hustle and bustle surrounding them. Here is the previous post in the series.

I am always enchanted by the many cafes in Paris, especially the neon signs at night. I’m going through my past photos, as the winter storm has kept me from taking new pictures.

This scene reminded me of a Vermeer, who was an expert at taking a mundane subject (girl filling a jug, woman doing needlepoint) and making it look absolutely stunning. Caught in a local Mexican restaurant (which explains the skull in the background).

Night on Clinton Beach   4 comments

It was such a beautiful night after a day of 90 degrees that I went to the beach at midnight, only to finally look at my watch and realize I had spent 2 hours taking pictures and playing around with my flashlight.

Amsterdam at Night   9 comments

I had the pleasure of having a professional photographer named Tom show me around Amsterdam at night, and teach me about night photography. I arranged it through Photo tours of Amsterdam, and was extremely happy with the tour, which lasted from 10:15pm (when it was still light out) until 1:45am. I can highly recommend it. Here are some samples from that night’s work. Click on any one picture to see them in slideshow format.

I love the festive mood that all of New York gets into before the holidays. It’s especially nice on a crisp, cold fall night. Here are a few of my favorite spots in mid-town. Happy Holidays!

Times Square Memories (part 3)   1 comment

Despite the cold weather, Times Square is teeming with tourists during the holiday season. These pictures are part of an ongoing project I’m having fun with: all the various ways people memorialize their visit to New York, and to Times Square specifically. The full series is in a gallery on my ¬†photography site.

As the evenings get warmer, Bryant Park, located behind the NY Public Library, becomes a gathering place for lovers, strollers, and chess players.

A fountain offers calming background sounds:
