High Winds and Wintery Mix with Twig Litter
High Winds and Wintry Mix with Twig Litter

A snow day in March. The Nor’easter that hit the east cost only dumped several inches of snow on Boston before becoming a wintry mix when I ventured out, camera in tow. The wind-whipped, freezing rain gradually turned to just plain old rain and made for a camera-soaking (good thing for weather-sealed equipment), and not exactly pleasant, afternoon stroll. It was a lot more fun being out during the snow day in February.

I manged to get a few decent shots, however. Unfortunately, the slush and soggy snow will freeze overnight.

Meatpacking District Gentrification Reflections
Reflecting on Meatpacking District Gentrification

A second and final set of photos from a recent trip to New York City. The first set featured black and white images, while this set showcases NYC in all its many colors. Featured here, as before, are shots from a walk to and from Penn Station to the West Village via the High Line, and another post-brunch, Sunday walk through the Meatpacking District and Chelsea.

This framing isolating scary takes the piece of public art out of context, but I like the message (and composition) of the photo. Here’s the full piece of art on the High Line, shot last August:

Blind Idealism is Deadly

The High Line, which I’ve shot a couple of times before, is an urban greenway—-a former elevated freight rail line transformed into a park and trail that runs from the West Village and Meatpacking District through Chelsea, ending beyond Penn Station.

Some street and architecture photos from a President’s Day trip to New York, shot with the Olympus Pen F monochrome mode.  This set includes photos shot from three different walks, including to and from Penn Station to the West Village via the High Line, and another post-brunch, Sunday walk through the Meatpacking District and Chelsea.

I’ve also included a couple of iPhone photos from the train, looking toward a hazy Manhattan skyline from Queens. These turned out to be relatively striking shots, with the winter sun getting low in the sky.
