FROM THE ACELA between NEW YORK and WASHINGTON DC – It’s generally not a good idea (from an image quality standpoint) to photograph through the windows of a moving train. Today was a generally bleak and overcast day on the Northeast rail corridor so when lovely light broke through for a few moments I did the best that I could through the train window. Here are a couple of images through the glass.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – If you’ve been following this site for a while you may have noticed that I’ve made some minor changes. We’ve made pictures a bit small to speed page loading, and have generally made the site more robust. Keeping this thing going is surprisingly similar to a job.

On this day four years ago (day 440): Riverside Drive South. We seem to have a “look up at streetlight” motif on December 9.

NORTHVILLE CONNECTICUT – Feeling like shooting some real man-influenced landscape today. Got this from the parking lot in a local market.

i always pause on December 7, Pearl Harbor Day. Probably because of my almost four years in the Marine Corps; the Pacific war was our war; we were taught the island campaigns in great detail, one foot of bloody sand at a time.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I spent the day downtown. I actually started on Houston Street at REI stocking up on this and that for travel and outdoors. The photography was only ok in not very good light. I’ve shot around the Chambers Street subway station before – there is a lovely arcade with Guastavino tiles on the overhead (as far as one can tell). I also shot the paddy wagon entrance to the Tombs.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I took a walk today in Midtown in the rain and captured 432 Park Avenue, the Nordstrom Tower, which for now will be the tallest residential structure in the world. There are various points of view on this, with some feeling that it’s a blight on the skyline, and others suggesting that it reflects the continued dynamism of Manhattan. Your choice on this issue.

On this day two years ago (day 1,145): Spin meets Basil, who uncharacteristically is in repose. This violates my long-standing rule against cute kids and dogs or other pets on this forum, so I’m taking the position that his is actually a picture of the vase in the background, which is from Spin in Shanghai, even though it is out of focus.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – So there is a massive store under construction on Third Avenue in the 80s. It’s rumored to be a Whole Foods, which would be a welcome addition to the neighborhood. For now it’s a massive green wall. Here it is, two frames stitched. Also here is my return to “Perfect Brows”.
