Arthur Avenue

The Belmont section of The Bronx is actually the premiere Little Italy in New York City. Not as large as in the past, it still sports a great variety of food stores, wine shops, bakeries and restaurants. This is a typical street scene.

La città gioiello

Yes indeed, Florence is a jewel of a city. High praises coming from a Sicilian.

One evening at Keyspan Park

My how time flies, these were shot 11 years ago! This lovely minor league park in Coney Island is home of the Brooklyn Cyclones. It was built not over the Cyclone roller coaster but on the site of the old Tornado roller coaster and right under the old parachute. Needless to say it was a memorable evening in a stadium that makes the game very close and personal.

Have a wonderful week


This gorgeous boy is the grandson of my cousin. It took many attempts before I was able to make two decent images. He was too self conscious in the beginning but when he returned to play with his toy cars, I was able to make my candid portraits. Children are not easy to photograph. These were of course hand held and were shot with the  Lumix GX-1
