Congressman Nadler

Posted on Jul 10, 2010 in The Photography

I didn’t know who Nadler was when I took this shot way back when – well let’s just say it was before he had the weight reduction surgery. But he was at a press conference and I happened to walk by with the Rollei TLR, and this made me feel like a real old time […]

Morning Rush Hour

Posted on Jul 10, 2010 in The Photography

Upper East Side. 1991. Pentax 6 x 7. Hard to believe, but in those days – I belonged to this crowd.  I never had to wear a suit, which was a nice thing about being a programmer.  During those days I would usually walk to work (about four miles) unless I was carrying a heavy […]

West Side Tree

I remember walking along near the West Side highway, back in 1991 with a 645 camera, and I found this lonesome tree which I never posted (until now).

House, Side of Road

Posted on Jul 9, 2010 in The Photography

If you think I have a hard time remembering where photos were taken in France – it’s even worse in our own Southwest. But this I do remember was on a highway on the way from Sedona to Flagstaff. The elevation was getting higher, and although it wasn’t early early morning, there was still frost […]

Grand Central – Boarding

Posted on Jul 9, 2010 in The Photography

Slight detour as I scan some view camera work from 1991. I’m using the Epson 4990 which is a flatbed with transparency cover. It can scan optically at 4800 dpi. Frankly, these are too large for my purposes, so I’m scanning to 20 x 24 at 300 dpi without any interpolation. As I go over […]

Factory Cat, Brooklyn

Thank you black feral cat for letting me get this close with the lumbering view camera, and allowing me to put a new holder in, and waiting for the click of the plunger, before darting back into your home.

Selling Photographs Online and Off

Posted on Jul 8, 2010 in The Photography

Most of my sales, whether for large amounts or small are straightforward.  The person adds items to the cart; pays for them; gets them; and usually that’s that unless they write a note to thank me for the pictures. The next level, may involve say 6 emails back and forth:   how soon can they get […]

Visitor with Flowers

Posted on Jul 7, 2010 in The Photography

I do need to trust my own images to convey what I felt at the time. When I put the site up, I thought that I should carve out the New York black and white niche. How else could I make a spot for myself on the web? But after many years of concentrating on […]

House in Woods

Posted on Jul 7, 2010 in The Photography

And so we circled the outskirts of France. Dirk and I spent one or two nights in quaint motels where the big event was which wine to have with dinner; and then off to the next point which usually was just as far as we could go before getting tired. Dirk was always in a […]
