Boy on Bike

Boy on Bike: HIE Infrared with Leica M3 / Tonemapped Single Image / Lightroom Adjustments Interesting, mood-wise if you were to hang this on the wall next to the previous post of woman with water bottle. It’s that sort of contrast that you don’t (at least I don’t) get to make in the blog format; […]

Hot Day in the City

Posted in The Photography

Pretty much how I felt today after getting up at 5 and packaging through the afternoon for about the fourth day in a row. And frankly, I think this is the first shot I’ve taken in a few weeks (not including the non-photo iPhone-Fire pictures). Don’t worry. Not complaining. Just telling it like it is, […]

Steam City

Posted in The Photography

I’m pretty sure that any New York photographer has a bunch of steam shots, whether they saw Taxi Driver or not.  I came across this one while looking for the lost negative; and it’s one of my favorite steam shots.

Negative Found

Posted in The Photography

How was it that I couldn’t find the negative ?? Very logical in retrospect.  I was sure that it was a 35tmm negative but it was taken with the Pentax 645.  Now, why did I think it was a 35mm negative?  Because it was taken a really really long time ago and I just didn’t […]

Summer on the Six

Posted in The Photography

Walker Evans – I don’t think of him as a street photographer, but I was very influenced when I started out by his subway series and used similar techniques (stuff like cable releases up the jacket sleeve; and other stuff that nowadays would seem sneaky.) As time went by, you begin to get inured to […]

Horizontal vs. Vertical

Posted in The Photography

Stuff happens in threes.  Every scientist knows that.  So the second thing that’s been happening today: I was getting many requests from potential customers who wanted to just view horizontal images at one time because they would go together better than mixing horizontal and vertical pictures.  So, this was easy enough, and I tagged the […]

iPhone Photo of Fire

Posted in The Photography

I went down to have a cigar and only had the iPhone in my pocket.  There was a big fire in the Pizza store (no not Two Boots, I think it’s called Fat Sals) but a crappier store on second between 83rd and 84 on East Side of street.  What is amazing is how many […]

New Tweet Button

Posted in The Photography

I had been using TweetMeme for the last month or so, which puts the Tweet thing with your Tweet Count by your posts… and then read recently in the Times that Twitter had finally made their own Tweet Button for use on blogs or any website where you want users to be able to tweet […]

various items including my room

Buddy continues to do better.  He was given a bottle of pills to tune down his thyroid, and he likes them.  He thinks they’re treats.  As far as getting the eyedrops in his right eye – that’s still an adventure.  He doesn’t like that at all Probably burns.  Plus even if you hold his head […]

IE It Just Ain’t Right

Posted in The Photography

So after doing a ton of work on the storefront, I figure it’s about time to check it in various browsers. I had bee working with Dreamweaver as the design tool, in Max OSX, and I have parallel and Windows 7 installed, though I haven’t used either in many months; and the only reason would […]
