This was on a handball wall near the FDR highway, New York City. The word “street” is painted on the building in the background.

The pigeons nest in the crevices between floors of the Guggenheim. Every so often they fly out. So you need to stand and wait, and wait.
Under Manhattan Bridge, NYC Skyline
Photographed in early 90s with medium format equpment. Beautiful detail. This is not the usual view of the building, from across a side street (which is where the movie marquee is).
Should call this one, ‘Ghosts’. One of a series of blurred experiments with people rushing through turnstyles. I was trying to get the shutter speed at exactly the right point to blur, but still have recognizable faces. It’s also interesting to me to notice how feet are rendered. The foot which is planted to move is not blurred, while the foot which is moving is.
Media: Medium format b&w film

From infrared film. Summers day. Carriage horses waiting to take you into Central Park. 2003.
Night jogger on running track around the Central Park Reservoir. Looking west from 90th street (Engineer’s Gate). Pretty tricky lighting with the moon and the blurred runner.
