New York City - Brooklyn - Bushwick - Night
Dancing with the shapes
on the walls,
the night’s music
around the day’s memory

New York City - Chinatown Rooftops with Graffiti - Sunset
New York City,
the tears that I blink back when I stare into the sun as it slides away from the remains of the day into night;
the dreams which are held close to my heart bound only by my imagination;
the sliver of hope that I have clung to in my darkest times as if hope was the only ledge I could hold onto at the edge of the universe sitting between the chasm of nothingness and being;
the city that holds the key to the rest of the world.
These are the rooftops of an area of lower Manhattan located between the Lower East Side and Chinatown known as Two Bridges due to its proximity to the Manhattan Bridge and the Brooklyn Bridge. Taken with the Sony A7R this past weekend.
Brooklyn - Williamsburg - South Side - New York City
There are scenes that linger long in the back of the throat: moments stirred by the senses that mean everything in retrospect as their colors grow more vivid with every replay on the back of the eyelids at night before dreams take over.
I still remember the first time I saw this little stretch of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I had just moved down to the Lower East Side from upper Manhattan. As I walked over the Williamsburg Bridge for the first time armed with my little point and shoot camera and a new-found sense of wonder, I remember stopping in my tracks when I came across this repair shop. It’s one of the first things you see after walking across the Williamsburg Bridge.
As I stood on the corner clumsily trying to capture the essence of the moment with the only tool I had at the time, I don’t think I even remotely imagined that I was in the beginning stages of a life-long love affair with photography.
And so, when I came across this scene this past weekend, it was as if I took a time machine back to that point in time. Even though my life has changed so much since that first week of exploration across the bridge from my new neighborhood, hardly anything had changed with this corner.
In a city that changes in the blink of an eye, some places linger a little longer than others.

Urban Decay - New York City’s changing face
Really happy to share that I will be posting to the PDN site every Thursday over in the PDN Emerging Photographer’s section. Here is a snippet of the beginning of my first post:
New York City changes and evolves at a rapid pace. In certain areas, changes occur faster than others. Lower Manhattan is one place that has changed the most in the last decade. Development happens fast and the current trends are extremely tall buildings constructed mostly of glass, chain stores and luxury boutiques. In neighborhoods that were once bohemian and home to artists and rebels… continue reading here…
