I was going through and organizing some of the photos I’ve taken from the past year and realized I forgot to post a few I made at SummerStreets. The city closed quite a few blocks of Park Avenue to vehicle traffic, including the Park Avenue Tunnel that goes around/through Grand Central Station, opening it up to pedestrians only. It was a great chance to use natural light and finding views you rarely get to see unless you’re cruising through in a vehicle.
Of course this also lead to some trippy, kind of creepy, images when I accidentally bumped the camera during a long exposure:
Now that it’s officially after Thanksgiving, I feel like I can post these. Even though I shot them in the past two weeks as I was walking home from work. Both were taken on my phone.
For some reason, shapes have always captured my attention. Maybe it’s my inner 6-year-old screaming to get out. While shooting a fashion lookbook, I was walking into the studio, I looked up and saw this fire escape. The way it seemed to reach toward the sky just made me want to photograph it.
I had a day off the recently with nothing more pressing on my schedule than eating and sleeping. Since nothing clear the mind and cleanse the creative palate like aimless wandering with a camera, that’s what I decided to do. With no aim other than to find interesting things to photograph, and pay attention to the things that normally go completely unnoticed, I set out and about in Brooklyn and lower Manhattan.
I can’t tell if it’s the lettering or the archway or both that makes this so interesting.
Just proof that weeds will win out no matter what, even in urban areas.
And a few more…
I think I’ve been watching too much “Life After People”
And, to end on a bright note, an image made solely for the colors.
