Easter Parade and Bonnet Festival

Street scenes from the 2017 NYC Easter Parade and Bonnet Festival

I was really tired this morning, and did not want to get up for today’s Easter Parade and Bonnet Festival. I’m glad I made it however. It’s been about two years since my last Easter day parade, and I think the crowds were bigger than ever. In case you’ve never been, the parade is more […]

Coney Island Opening Day

An amusement ride on Coney Island opening day 2017

Yesterday I took a trip to Coney Island.  It had been about a year since my last visit, and I assumed the amusement parks would all be closed.  I was wrong.  Yesterday was, in fact, opening day at Coney Island.  The weather was beautiful, and the crowds were plentiful.  It was as if all of […]

Holy Land in Orlando, Florida

Street scene in Delhi, India

These photos are from a trip I took in 2008. I flew in and out of Delhi, and visited the Rajasthan area and Agra. I was in India for three weeks on my own. It started out as an exhilarating adventure. But after a week and a half of constant harassment and travel challenges, I […]

The High Line: March 8

Tourists on the High Line in NYC

Yesterday I went out with the mission to make a photo, not take a photo.  All too often I find myself snapping and running vs. taking the time to wait for the shot.  I want my street photography to push beyond the limits of simply being in the right place at the right time.  This […]

Chaos, everywhere.  A different country.  That’s what it feels like to step out of the subway at Roosevelt and Main and into the world of Flushing, Queens.  I have visited countless times before, but yesterday I went with the express purpose of street photography.  Here is a glimpse of my day in Flushing.
