Here is a shot of the tallest residential towers in the Americas — New York by Gehry. The towers were designed by Frank Gehry, probably the most acclaimed architect of our time. The building is located at 8 Spruce, not far from Ground Zero and the nearly finished Freedom Tower. It is a dominant element in …

I’m heading up to the White Mountains today for a couple of days of hiking and shooting. The itinerary is pretty loose, but I hope to bring back some good images. I may or may not get to post more this week, so this could be the last image on the blog until next week. …

Plainview Diner

This is a shot from Memorial Day Weekend on Long Island. I went down there with a friend to run a Memorial Day road race. Of course I brought my camera, but it barely made it out of my bag. The weekend was a washout. The race was incredibly cold and wet — although very …

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 …

Click image to view larger. This is a “gimme shot” from a trip to New York last October. I shot it on a run from somewhere in Brooklyn to Lower Manhattan and back.  I ran carrying my D700 with a 20mm lens — about as compact a kit as I can carry. The clear blue …

Don’t be a Gashole

  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 …

I’m just back from a great weekend in New York City. My wife and I were there for a wedding in Brooklyn, but I managed to convince her to stay an extra night so I could spend some time shooting with friends. My friend +Mark Garbowski hooked me up with a great Google Plus photo walk through …

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 …

Dan Brucker was escorting us to the first major stop on the Grand Central tour. He had explained to us how the system was enormously larger than the street level footprint of Grand Central Terminal. Still I was surprised that the first stop on the tour took us outside the main terminal. But it made …
