Archival shot

This butcher shop was located at 187th Street in the Bronx's Little Italy. It mostly featured lamb the traditional food for Easter. This was an Easter long ago, It was shot with a Nikon S-2 on Tri-X Pan film. The lens was a 35mm Nikkor F 3.5.

It's always the light

By capturing interesting light at the right time of day, one can turn the  prosaic into the interesting. These images are from Strasburg, PA and are of a mere porche; but I believe that the images are above average.

Red camellias

These red camellias are from the green house at the Planting Fields Arboretum on Long Island. We always visit this glorious place at the end of February to get a feel of what spring will eventually bring us. Unfortunately we are still waiting.

Beauty out of ugliness?

Is it possible to find beauty out of ugliness? If one is careful and does the right cropping and used color and light to work together then I believe that it may be done. You be the judge. These images are from the area under I 495 in an industrial area of NYC called Long Island City.

Late signs of early sring

It's been a nasty winter whose tenacity is  almost unheard of.  Early signs of spring are appearing even if quite late. But it's a move in the right direction, I suppose. A soft focus filter was used to give the image a dreamy feel.

Have a wonderful week

Cactus pears

Although originally from the New World, cactus pears have become emblematic of  the Sicilian landscape. These are very early digital images with the Fuji S1-Pro, my first serious digital camera with which I shot jobs. I'm  still in awe of that incredible 3.4 mega pixels sensor who outputted  very saturated colors that reminded me of the old Kodachrome II slide film.

My favorite buiding in this city that I love so much

I never tire of photographing the Flat Iron Building. I have shot it in every season and still cannot get enough images. I absolutely love it.
