medium frame of mind

I’ve been studying and photographing the world through a 35 mm, rectangular frame. After being told by a portfolio reviewer in New Orleans and an instructor at ICP that my ‘eye’ might be better expressed through a medium format/square frame I’m considering making the leap. It’s not like changing brands of soap and it will require money, time and effort on my part. But, if I can ultimately take a better picture, then it’s all worth it. This was one of my very first attempts taken at Topkapi Palace, Istanbul, a couple of years back.

I tried to show Ernie some photos of himself but obviously he could have cared less.

Vegetable soup was on the menu this evening (and grilled cheese), but let’s just focus on the fact that we avoided the evil takeout menu and enjoyed a home cooked meal in Manhattan.

Today was windy, rainy and icy, and I was in a class room learning about how my two book ideas have already been taken. On the bright side, I walked away from class feeling excited about my collection of Coney Island and Ernie pics, and with the help and encouragement of students and teacher, will continue to pursue what I love.

A couple of nights ago, we headed over to the east village for some Ethiopian cuisine. Here is a shot of the owner of Meskel and I must say his cooking is as bright and colorful as his smile.

This cold weather is rough on wanna-be photographers. And as I type this, I hear sleet pounding the windows. So I turn my focus inward and keep shooting the other animate objects that reside in this warm apartment.
