ANTIGUA – Passing by a gift shop here today we ran across a large format photo book about Antigua that was billed as “the ultimate coffee table book”. Not hardly. The book and the photographs were terrible. The photographer was struggling, unsuccessfully, against the fact that all these island paradises pretty much all look the same; when you’ve seen a palm tree on a white sandy beach with white puffy clouds in the background you’ve pretty much seen them all.

I share the author of the book’s pain. Today, and perhaps this week, I’ll be throwing images against the wall to see what sticks. You’ll see more people that is usually the case in the space. My Twitter feed has taught me that most of my images of people aren’t very popular, probably because I’m better and landscape than people. You’ll see some macro shots.

Day 1,985 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.

On this day five years ago (day 159): Chrysler Building. this is a personal favorite from the five year plus effort. It embodies the “New York as landscape” theme, one of the major theme in my work. The contrast with the Antigua images is breathtaking.
