New York City - Rainy Afternoon

—-

Every drop of rain paints the city with an otherworldly light: tiny illuminated universes casting their glow onto the city with every luminous splatter.

Wet earth in the form of darkened concrete springs forth new life in the form of urban wanderers who migrate quickly from one patch of earth to another as their wet reflections echo their movements.

And after the day has unleashed its deluge of light, the city soaks in the infused-afterglow.

I returned from Martinique this week with many amazing memories and a ton of photos. My journeys there took me to volcanic beaches, tiny secluded hidden spots with hammocks, rain-forests, and the bluest, clearest waters. If you were following along on my travel blog: Traveling Lens, I tried to post a few photos while I was exploring the island but there is so much I didn’t post about. I can’t wait to go through everything and share my experiences and visual memories of the island.

While, I will try to post about Martinique, my tropical posts may be delayed for a bit. I am in the midst of preparing to head to France in less than 2 weeks. I will be spending time in the South of France (Montpellier, Aix-en-Provence, Marseilles, and Nice) before spending the remaining part of my trip in Paris at the beginning of July. Exciting times! Can’t wait to share my experiences there as well. 

All this traveling is incredible but I have to say that I miss New York City when I am away with an intensity that is almost tangible. I spent my first day back in New York City walking around the Lower East Side (my home neighborhood), and enjoying the company of a guitar-playing virtuoso outside under the trees for hours. 

Home is where the heart beats to the rhythm of the soul.

Home is the glint in the eye.

Home is the smile in the corner of the mouth.

New York City - Street Art - Clinton Street - Lower East Side

New York City

rests

when it rains -

its seemingly boundless,

sleepless energy

subsides

as sidewalks

stretch out,

glistening like

glinting sand.

This is when

the walls

dream.

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 - Rain at Night

When I first started delving into photography, one of the earliest conundrums I remember reading about involved the debate between technical perfection and artistic license. It always struck me as an odd topic, particularly since I have always approached my photography as a means to express emotion and mood rather than a way to highlight technical prowess.

It’s difficult to say that there is one right way to approach art since all art is subjective. It’s important though to figure out what you are trying to express. Are you trying to express a…continue reading here…

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…
