Faded brick storefront and a bicycle. Lower East Side, New York City

 Is there anything that tugs at nostalgic feelings more than a beautifully faded storefront? Maybe. Maybe not. I love this one in particular though especially on bright, sunny days when it feels as if the sun is imbuing the faded memories on the brick with a warm touch.

This was taken with Instagram. As I mentioned last week, I only started using Instagram a week or so ago and I love it. My name there is newyorklens. You can read about my thoughts on mobile photography and Instagram here. Most of my phone photos are now processed in Snapseed first and then tinkered with in Instagram. I decided I am going to post one phone photography image a week here since I am really having a lot of fun with it!

I received a really bizarre question the other night shortly before I disabled anonymous commenting altogether. Someone asked me something like “do you use a camera to take your photos or just some app?” saying something else about how my photography has “changed” over time. 

I would like to say first: thank you. We can only evolve in skill if we change and grow. My photography is constantly evolving and I feel more and more at peace with the work I am producing recently because it is closer to what I have been trying to achieve in terms of conveying emotion and how I view the world around me. Additionally, every image I ever post here unless it is tagged (like this post) with “phone photography” is taken with a camera. 

I approach all of my photography as a mixture of painting with light and tones and I strive with everything in my power to capture the feelings and emotions that are stirred up within myself with certain scenes here in New York City. If you are interested in hearing more about that, I was interviewed a month ago on a photography show hosted by Thomas Hawk and Lotus Carroll and you can read that interview and listen to that broadcast here.
