Sunday greetings from New York

Simple food shots

Sometimes the simple set up wins the day. These images were mage with available light on GAF 200 slide film that had wonderful browns. It's too bad that GAF [Anscochrome] films were not used more. They had wonderful emulsions whose colors lasted.

Have a peaceful weekend

Sometimes it takes a cheap lens

These two images from a Cruise taken long ago show how an inexpensive gadget can get results. The lens in question is a Spiratone semi fish eye that had interchangeable mounts. It costed about 35.00 and I used rarely but at times it really put out.

The images I find

These two images of  women were  shot on the same roll of Kodachrome back in 1986 in Manhattan's Little Italy. I will make no further comments.

Let the madness season begin

I realize that these images should have been posted this past Friday but i do not follow fashions. What makes these images interesting that the5 are from a Christmas forty years ago; 1975 to be exact. They could have been taken last year or this year even though the tree is not officially unveiled yet. What I'm driving at is a point that I have made several times and that has to do with the uncanny ability of the new technology to capture and freeze the moments without making the resultant images appear dated. It's eerie to think about where the people in the images are today. Weird.

Glass workers

I did all sorts of shooting assignments in my many years behind the camera. These images are from an industrial assignment in a glass factory way back in 1973. These are scanned Ektachrome slides that kept their color. They were all shot on available light.

The images I find

These images of Michelangelo's David in Florence date from the summer of 1969. They were shot on Agfachrome 59 that lost much of its color so I converted them to black and white.
