Forgotten files

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.

Joggers head north on Park Avenue exiting the tunnel that runs around Grand Central Station.

Of course this also lead to some trippy, kind of creepy, images when I accidentally bumped the camera during a long exposure:

It’s that time of year

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.

Ten years later

Twin Towers light tributeIt’s hard to believe that it’s been 10 years, even though it still feels just like yesterday when the world watched that horrific day unfold as 3,000 people were taken from their mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, and brothers and sisters before their time for doing nothing more than going to work. Seeing these lights reminds us that the most fitting tribute we can have is to remember those who died that September day.
