The Corner

In architecture, New York by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

I grabbed this shot while running (literally) through the streets of New York City a couple of years ago. I was training for a marathon at the time, and decided to combine my two passions (running and photography), so I did my long run carrying my DSLR with a 20mm lens. Yes. I got some strange …

Williamsburg

In 20mm f2.8, New York by Robert Lussier7 Comments

  If this shot looks familiar to you, it should. I posted a very similar shot of this scene in Black and White a couple of weeks ago. It was taken right after this one, only in vertical format. I don’t usually like to post two shots of the same thing but I took such …

Empire

In 20mm f2.8, New York by Robert Lussier7 Comments

  Flipping (well, clicking) through my Lightroom catalog last night, I found a couple of more images from my October trip to New York City that went neglected. Thought I’d give them some processing love. We were there for my wife’s cousin’s wedding. The reception was at a little Italian Restaurant in Brooklyn on the East …

Flatiron

In 50mm 1.4, New York by Robert Lussier5 Comments

Click on image or the terrorists win. New York City is the land of “bucket list” shots for me. And the Flatiron Building is probably number one on my list. Back in college I was in awe of the work of the early photographers like Edward Steichen, Alfred Stieglitz and Paul Strand. All three of …

Passing Times

In 24mm PC-E, New York, people by Robert Lussier8 Comments

I was going through some old images last night and found this one from my trip to New York this past June. It was the last image I shot after an epic day that took me and a handful of friends from Grand Central Terminal to The Brooklyn Bridge and back to Manhattan for dinner. …

The Crosswalk

In 20mm f2.8, architecture, New York by Robert Lussier6 Comments

I know, its an odd title for an image like this. No road, crosswalk, people or cars. I shot it on my run through New York a couple of weeks ago. I was stopped at a crosswalk (thus the title) in Lower Manhattan when I noticed the cool building directly across from me. When I …

Artichoke Special

In 20mm f2.8, Cityscape, New York, Uncategorized by Robert Lussier4 Comments

I am passionate about photography. I am equally passionate about running. Sometimes my need to run and my desire to shoot collide, forcing me to choose one over the other. Last weekend in New York, the two collided in a way in which one couldn’t possibly win over the other. For the past three or …

Don’t be a Gashole

In 20mm f2.8, New York by Robert Lussier10 Comments

  When Occupy Wall Street was still going on during the week leading up to my New York trip, I prayed it wouldn’t die out before I got there. I wanted to go and shoot it. Not because my politics are aligned with that of the protesters (they are not).Maybe I secretly want to be …

Face Time

In 15mm fisheye 2.8, New York by Robert Lussier7 Comments

I thought I had gone through all of these images from my New York trip this past spring but a quick cruise my catalog revealed this shot. You are looking at Grand Central Terminal’s clock from inside the clock tower. I have a couple of similar shots of local mill clocks shot from behind the …
