New York City - Chinatown on a Rainy Evening

When does a photograph transform from a snapshot into something more transcendent? This is probably one of the most complex questions that photographers encounter.

I firmly believe that subjective taste plays a large role in deciding what is or isn’t memorable. One could debate the existence of a collective subjective taste. However, rather than debate about collective subjective taste, I can share how I differentiate between a snapshot and a more memorable photograph. 

When I took this photo, it was one of many I took of the this street corner. This happens to be one of my favorite areas of Chinatown and I wanted to convey the …continue reading here…

New York City - Summer. Chrysler Building and midtown street.

It’s in the way the summer sunlight

washes over the city

in the middle of the day,

cloaking the streets in 

the brightest of light.

It’s in the way the summer days

linger on the the barest 

of breezes,

full of color 

and promise.

This is one of my favorite views of the Chrysler Building from midtown. The neighborhood is currently known as NoMad (North of Madison Square Park) and borders Murray Hill. This particular location near Lexington Avenue and 28th Street is colloquially known as Curry Hill though due to the plethora of Indian restaurants and spice shops that dot the urban landscape. 

I took this photo on a brilliantly sunny afternoon in the early summer with the Sony NEX-6. It was the kind of afternoon that seemed as if it was without end: the kind of afternoon that seems to lazily drift into evening. 

In short, it was summer in New York City at its finest. And it doesn’t get much better than that sometimes.

New York City. Rain. Doyers Street. Chinatown.

—-

On evenings when the sky 

seduces the city 

with its tears of happiness, 

the streets shine 

in the gleam of nearby lights.

And broken-hearted alleys 

wind their way

through the empty recesses 

of lover’s hearts

as the city soaks

in the warm afterglow 

of what the sky has wrought.

This image is of Doyers Street, a winding alley in Chinatown, New York City. It was taken with the Sony A55 during a summer rainstorm.

New York City - Chinatown. 

There are streets that wrap themselves into the city’s consciousness. They weave themselves into the fabric of every summer-drenched memory. 

Every color, every faded mark, every fire escape permeates thoughts that sleepwalk their way into dreams.

This is East Broadway in Chinatown, New York City. I took this photo with the Sony NEX-6 while standing on the pedestrian walkway of the Manhattan Bridge. The buildings in the distance are the Municipal Building, New York by Gehry, and 1 WTC.

I have taken countless images of it and every single image sings a slightly different song.
