New York City at Night - Lower East Side
Street lights shine
under a blanket of
as the mist
from the fog
of millions of thoughts
into a sky
heavy with dreams.
New York City - Street Art - Clinton Street - Lower East Side
New York City
when it rains -
its seemingly boundless,

Taken earlier after one of many intense thunderstorms today with my Sony a7R. This is Clinton Street on the Lower East Side. This particular mural just changed recently. It used be a colorful mural of a group of happy gnomes. I kind of like the newer mural. I love this street during this time of year when the trees bloom and the sidewalks are slick from afternoon storms.
New York City at Night in the Winter - Lower East Side
The first draft of my New York City photography book is due a week from today. I have been immersed in the grueling process of not only finalizing the writing for the book but also picking the images that will ultimately go into the book. It’s been an interesting process since I have been sorting through images dating all the way back to the end of 2010 when I first started seriously pursuing photography.
This photograph was taken with my iPhone during the winter of 2012. This is a portion of the same part of Rivington Street that I photographed and published online in my last post to this blog. It’s interesting how two totally different nights produced two entirely different images of (roughly) the same location.
I remember that I took this photograph when I was at a turning point in terms of understanding where I wanted to go with my photography. When I look at this scene, I can feel the cathartic rush of emotions that washed over me while I stood on that street corner. It was so freeing to finally come to terms with my goal of pursing the loose quality of melding a host of influences and emotions into an image rather than capturing the sharp quality of reality .
And with that, I return to the cocoon of book creation where hopefully I will emerge in a week with a first draft that my editing team will enjoy sculpting into a finished product. :)

New York City - Snow - Ludlow Street - Lower East Side
It’s moments like these
that the world
for every breath
the earth’s heartbeat.
And we move
through the city
relishing a chance
to be enveloped
by the sinking,
as the city
This was taken while walking down Ludlow Street on the Lower East Side on a beautiful winter night with my Sony A99.
There is nothing like standing in the swirling snow while the ground disappears under a blanket of white. Everything that matters and everything that is insignificant just melts away.
