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 […]

Freakin’

Buddy continues to be on the mend.  Good.  He does seem to have nine lives. The changes to the store have worked out; but the one thing I haven’t tackled, which is usually something that web designers would’ve done ten years ago, is the freakin’ logo.  “Freakin’” is a very New York word that is […]

Black Cat, Bronx House of Detention

Posted in The Photography

In case you’re wondering what I’m up to, I working on cataloging my Bronx images (mostly from about three years ago). This is one of those lucky catches. I was driving by the House Bronx of Detention when I decided it was a spot I should at least try to photograph. I expected guards to […]

the stoop where i grew up

Posted in The Photography

Tonemapped from b&w negative. One day I’ll do a little Blurb book with these distorted memories of my youth in the Bronx. As I’ve written before, the stoop and the courtyard were the center of all our activities that took place before and after the lockup known as public school.
