This week I went to Mood fabric store for my artist date. Whenever my mom took me to the fabric store as a kid, I would stare at all the different kinds of buttons. Mood (a Project Runway haunt) provided me a very nice selection. I also wanted to inject some color into my blog before I go back to my usual darker ‘moods’.

Action shot from Thanksgiving.

nice puddle

During the winter I’m usually so cold I don’t want to lift my head to look up and so I end up staring at miles of dirty sidewalks until spring comes.

going with the grain

I paid the price for both the alcohol and the use of a higher ISO to get the shot and a nice buzz.

second look

Stretching my photoshop muscles I worked a little bit yesterday to enhance this photo (deleted an unsightly trash can, lessoned the brightness of the flash in the foreground, highlighted the whites of her dress and skyline, among other things).

as time goes by

Yesterday was street cleaning day. Had to move the car. That hour and a half lasts forever.

in the darkness

I wish I had brighter shots to post but most of my pics lately have been taken under darker conditions. Is it because of impending winter or is it a reflection of an inner darkness?

smoke and a pancake?

More like a smoke and a Mr. Softee milkshake for the newly married couple, sitting here on the steps of the New York Public Library.

I can’t look at a camera right now. (this is actually a self portrait)

I’m back in black.

do I dream in color?

3020431391 bb3bae8a35 o do I dream in color?

I love color. Most people do. But it is definitely not my strength when it comes to my photography as I tend towards more monochromatic tones — black and white being my truest love. I guess my subconscious was craving a bit more of the rainbow even though my focus was on the little white church in the middle of this scene in NYC.

heaven on earth, or odd things

I see some strange things in the city. But there are different kinds of strange out in the country.

Mike and Annemarie took Manhattan yesterday. A truly beautiful couple, now in marriage, I was honored to help capture their love and the love of family and friends. Today, while I’m feeling a little fuzzy, it is a good kind of tired. (photo by paul)

Last week was a much-needed trip to Shenandoah, Va. New York was very far away.

I had yet to see a NY parade… until last Friday. It was a doozy.
