Up the Hudson

Monday, May 24th, 2010

I took the metro north train up the Hudson to Tarrytown to get some images of the Tappan Zee bridge (see Iconic New York, Color).  It was so picturesque.  There was a little lighthouse (see People and Places), sailboats, very few people.  Until I happened upon these two guys fishing.  I think it was the straw hat that made me think of Tom and Huck.

I was in Dumbo for The New York Photo Festival last week.

The views from there are great and every time I’m there I see something else. (For all you out-of-towners, Dumbo’s a hot new neighborhood in Brooklyn between the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges).  The shot that’s the home page for my website came from there.

Here’s a shot of an abandoned warehouse.

Times Square at Night

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

Shoot last night with a friend in Times Square. What an experience!  I’ve never just stood still there -I’m usually pushing through the crowds to get to the theater.  So many people, so many languages being spoken. As a lifelong New Yorker, there was a time when I would have been afraid of being mugged.  Now I was afraid of being trampled by the tons of tourists!  It definitely gave me a new perspective on the “crossroads of the world”.  It was very entertaining and I got some great photos!
