Street Photography: 210 West 14th Street

In a previous blog post, I described my experience revisiting West 14th Street, an area I frequented many years ago when I worked in the music industry.  Although the area has changed, I photographed a residential building — number 200 — that stood on West 14th for over one hundred years. As I continued walkingContinue reading “Street Photography: 210 West 14th Street”

Street Photography: 200 West 14th Street

It’s been a while since I have posted any street photography work.  It’s easy to get backed up especially as I was starting a new National Park Service commission that gave rise to some artistic and technical and challenges.  Now that so much of the world is under some sort of quarantine, the commission isContinue reading “Street Photography: 200 West 14th Street”

Street Photography: 32nd Street

It’s not often I see a bus with “Evil” prominently displayed on its front. So how can I make it look a little more diabolical, twisted, and menacing? For starters, getting the front of the bus straight on gives the impression that it is going directly after me in an effort to run me down.Continue reading “Street Photography: 32nd Street”

Street Photography: “Fuhgeddaboudit”

It’s been a busy week. I had a corporate photo shoot, workshops at National Parks in two states, and the launch of a Facebook group for workshop attendees. I continued to photograph on the streets almost every day, but writing the blog had to take a backseat to these other commitments. It was fun toContinue reading “Street Photography: “Fuhgeddaboudit””

Street Photography: Expression

What a picture of these polarized times. If you’ve read my last three posts, you will know that I have been photographing architectural features in the Fifth Avenue area. On my way to those sites, I passed by Trump Tower. Across the street were these two lone protesters. Ironically, their physical positions were opposite toContinue reading “Street Photography: Expression”

Street Photography: Icons of New York

After photographing the Presbyterian Church and the gate detail of the Harry Winston jewelry store – both on Fifth Avenue and described in the last two posts – I walked down and took a side street. There were brownstones that seemed to be of mixed use – business and residential. One brownstone, at 13 WestContinue reading “Street Photography: Icons of New York”

Street Photography: Icons of New York

In my last post, I featured a photograph of the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church. Across the street, a half block away, I came across an elaborately ornate entrance. The black gate appeared to be of iron and it was decorated with – if I counted correctly – 96 of these yellow-gold rosettes. As usual, IContinue reading “Street Photography: Icons of New York”

Street Photography: Icons of New York

The red sandstone of the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church caught my attention. I positioned myself to photograph the tower so that its shape mirrored the angles of the blue glass skyscraper in the background. The old and the modern, the warm red bricks and the cool blue glass, the spiritual and the commercial all provideContinue reading “Street Photography: Icons of New York”
