Domino Sugar Factory - Brooklyn -  New York City

There is something so incredibly touching about urban decay.

Sorrow and longing can be traced in the peeling layers and crumbling brick. In warm sunlight, iron oxidation produces.. .continue reading here…

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.

Empire State Building and abandoned railroad tracks.

It’s fascinating to consider the various ways in which we take our versions of where we live for granted.  

As if the places we inhabit sprouted forth perfectly sculpted into their current incarnations.  

Perhaps this is why if you live in any one place for an extended amount of time, you become deeply attached to a definitive notion of time and place that doesn’t specifically exist.  

And when you come across places in your current environment that run counter to that notion, it’s enough to take your breath away momentarily.

This is the final untouched part of the High Line. The High Line is a public park that sits along a historic freight railroad line elevated high above the streets of New York City on the west side of Manhattan.  

I took this photo with the Sony A99 on a private tour of this part of the High Line a few months back.  

It still haunts me.

Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Hewes Street.—-

With layers of dirt and paint under our nails from constantly peeling back the layers of this city, it’s not the stars we seek.

It’s the light that seeps through…
