Anti-Trump Rally in Times Square

Anti-Trump rally in Times Square by NYC photojournalist, Kelly Williams

I was on my way back from a wedding event, of all things, and heard this huge commotion coming from Times Square.  There were helicopters overhead, so I knew something was up.  Sure enough, a group of anti-Trump demonstrators were marching towards Times Square after protesting the candidate at a Republican black-tie affair uptown.  I […]

Coney Island Creek

Coney Island Creek

Coney Island Creek is where rotting ships from the past rise to the surface every low tide.  I first visited this hidden spot years ago when you had to sneak in through the Home Depot parking lot to find it.  With a fancy new park surrounding the ships, the element of danger is perhaps gone, […]

The 2016 St. Patrick’s Day Parade in NYC

Bagpipe players at the 2016 St. Patrick's Day Parade in NYC by photojournalist, Kelly Williams

Photos from today’s St. Patrick’s Day parade in Manhattan.  Lots of crowds, especially around 47th Street.  I was caught in a group of, quite frankly, drunk idiots who created quite a dangerous situation pushing and shoving in an attempt to move against the crowd.  Color me paraded out for the day.  Enjoy the photos.

Queens County St. Patrick’s Day Parade

Bagpipers at the Queens County St. Patrick's Day Parade, by NYC photojournalist, Kelly Williams

I haven’t been to the Far Rockaways in forever.  In case you haven’t ever visited, it is located in the farthest edge of Queens.  It’s a lovely seaside village of sorts, that has definitely seen better days.  The town hosts the annual Queens County St. Patrick’s Day Parade.  This year’s event, held this past Saturday, […]

A Non-Tourist’s View of Staten Island

The Staten Island Ferry sign in Manhattan, by NYC photographer, Kelly Williams

Last Monday I played the role of tourist with a trip to Staten Island.  The original goal of my trip was to have a taste of Sri Lankan food.  (Who knew that the largest community of Sri Lankans in the US reside just across the water in the St. George area of Staten Island?)  But […]

Fine art portrait series on bones by NYC photographer, Kelly Williams

I have always wanted to go back to the portrait series I did many years ago at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum in Washington, D.C.  I finally had the chance this past Friday, and took a trip to the Natural History Museum here in New York City.  In comparing the two sets of photos, this […]
