Mystic Conn. many years ago

This peaceful image dates from 1971, it was originally shot on Ektachrome. After scanning it, I converted it to black and white because the scene had little color and it had almost faded.

Have a rosy weekend

This image dates from 1973. A scan of a 120 Ektachrome slide. A little restoration brought back the vivid colors.

Thinking of summer

As we get ready for the end of daylight saving time and must face the realities of winter, it's nice to think of warmer days.
This is a scan of a Kodachrome slide from the late seventies shot on a summer Sunday afternoon in Central Park. I wonder where this couple is now after so may years.

Making the scene

During the sixties and up to the eighties, making the scene was all the rage. It was a way to re invent oneself if only for a brief moment and hoping that the world saw them in the way that they wanted to be seen. Alas, Pirandello showed us that this was not possible because each person sees another in a unique way. But it was fun. New Yorkers were so used to this that they hardly paid attention any more. Now it has all changed with constant texting and messaging. But this is a story for another time. Here these two were making the scene hoping to be at least noted.

From Astoria Park

These images were made on a late summer night with the Nikon D1 X. I was shooting with my daughter Jen. Wonderful times.

Nyc in the eighties

I always carried a camera with me no matter where I went. These two shots were made on TX-P 220 with a Mamiya C220 camera and the 80 mm F 2.8 lens. I miss those towers.

The countdown has begun

The countdown to Halloween, that is. It's a new phenomenon because Halloween is no longer a treat or trick holiday for children. Grown up are going all out to decorate homes and participate in costumes along with the children. These shots are from Main Street in Honesdale, PA where the town id gearing up for Halloween.
