The Union Square Area

I was running errands today, picking up ink for my photo printer and cool little packaging material to mail out to new clients. As always, I brought my camera along for the ride. I don’t always find something inspiring to photograph but when I stop my speed walking and look up, I’m always stunned by the beauty of architecture. I miss the trees of the countryside but on a beautiful, blue day like today in New York City, I’m more than happy to be here.

Lost in Bushwick

It was a foggy evening and once in a while, I’d see a face appearing through the mist and then it would disappear again into a darkened street.

Ghastly Man on Street in Astoria, New York

Someone used the word “ghastly” in a comment for a post I wrote last week. I don’t think this word is used enough.

This is on a street corner in my neighborhood of Astoria. I took a ton of photos that night but loved this one most for its chuckle-bility (it’s like a visual pun). Just a fun silly shot.

Just for Fun: Las Vegas

“What did you go for?” a friend asked a couple days ago.

“A bachelor party,” I nearly grunted.

“That’s typical.”

I shrugged. Vegas wasn’t my kind of town but don’t get me wrong, I acted like it was. I wasn’t impressed the first day there but the city began to sink it’s ugly teeth into me until I was in its belly. The escape via 5 hour flight back home was a relief but it was only because my body needed it.

It was my first time there. My eyes popped open with the ignorance of a newborn and I saw all that I had been missing. The camera stayed in the hotel room while my cell phone and I went out for a walk.

These shots were taken with an iPhone and were done for the fun of it — in spirit of that loony American city in the Southwest. Yes, these are my vacation photos.
