Eclipse reactions   2 comments

Captured these scenes in Rexburg, Idaho moments before the total eclipse (Aug 21, 2017). These reactions paled in comparison to the reactions during totality, but I was too busy enjoying that moment to take pictures.

Caught on the Friday afternoon train out of Grand Central Terminal in New York.  I liked the contrast of posture and attire, yet they both evoke the same question:”Are we there yet?” as they wait to get to their destination and start their weekend.

Overheard in a Coffee Shop:
“Going to the bathroom has become such an undertaking.”
“If they’d both come over, they’d kill each other.”

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.

Life in Rocinha Favela   3 comments

These are the last pictures I’ll post from my trip to Rio de Janeiro in June. This favela, with over 70,000 inhabitants, is now a neighborhood favela, featuring 4 schools and several hospitals. It houses many middle-class Brazilians who like the affordable living within one of South America’s largest metropolises. Click on any picture to see them in slideshow format.

When was the last time…   1 comment

…you saw someone using a pay phone? It’s been a while for me, so it struck me as worthy of a quick snapshot.

Optical Illusion   1 comment

Apparently this street art installation has been in place in New Haven since 2010, but I just noticed it last week for the first time. The artist is Felice Varini and this is his first installation in the US. While it looks like someone just overlaid a geometric design onto this photograph of this alley, this is actually painted on the walls of the alley and the parking garage behind it.

Favela Alleys   1 comment

The labyrinth of alleys in the Rocinho favela are best explored with someone who lives there. It’s easy to get lost. When in doubt, keep going downstairs, as eventually you’ll end up at the bottom of the hill where the favela ends. Click on any image to see them in slideshow format.

We met these kids during our walk through the Rozinho favela in Rio last week. Click on any picture to see them in slideshow format.

World Cup Fever – part 3   4 comments

No wonder Brazilians are great at soccer (futebol), they start early and on the beach, which is much harder than on grass. This kid was already delighting onlookers with impressive shooting skills.

Kaffeeklatsch   Leave a comment

‘Kaffeeklatsch is German for ‘chatting and gossiping over coffee with friends’, and it’s what I witnessed today at a coffee shop. These two ladies were truly enjoying the coffee and their conversation.
