Saturday in the park....a few yeras ago

Actually a Saturday in Central Park in the early seventies before texting and cell phones. People actually spoke to each other and looked at their surroundings. I better quit before I'm labeled stuffy and old fashioned.

Breathtaking

Breathtaking is the only way to describe a nice, well lit panorama of this gem of a city.

Have a splendid weekend

A view from the Bridge

These images were shot from the Brooklyn Bridge several years ago. They are some of my earliest digital images.

Archival slide scans

These three Kodachrome II scans date from the early seventies ans were all from the area of Manhattan known as the East Side near Lexington Avenue and 28th Street. This was the area near my old studio at 26th Street and Lexington Avenue. I would get off the subway at 28th Street and take shots at of the neighborhood. The area is somewhat different now. The main difference is the plethora of Italian restaurants that have been established since then

Cheap thrills

These images were all made with a Spiratone semi fish eye lens. Some of you may remember Spiratone, the king of all gadgets and cheap lenses. This was a very inexpensive and totally manual lens. It didn't even focus. It was neat and although it had all sorts of aberrations it was fun to use.  The camera was the Fuji S-1 Pro my first serious digital camera.

We'll always have Venice

It's so hard deciding what to post or re post. In moments of such mental blocks, I can always rely on Venice.
