Category: NYC Photo Blog

This photo blog began before the word “blog” was coined.  At least that’s how I remember it.  The year was 1999. I called it an online journal.  There were definitely others keeping online photo journals.  I guess you’d have to go into the wayback machine to find the early journal writing.

Apres the Gallery Show Notes

During the summer of 2001, I did a gallery show somewhere in Connecticut.  Some very wealthy town near some other wealthy town.  I got about ten prints on the walls of the gallery (I don’t even know if I took pictures of it).  Anyway, I used to carry this journal around with me, and here’s […]

Darkroom Notes Matt Weber

This is what we used to do to keep notes about how to dodge, burn, bleach, and who knows what else darkroom prints. I still have several similar books of notes but came across this one from Matt Weber. Here’s a link to what I think is the finished print of Willow and Ice (on […]

The Wild Ones

On the way back home, at Times Square Station – like a bolt of lightning – the girls came running towards us (I was with Matt W.) and we both fired as quickly as possible.  Matt turned to me and said, that was like a “coda” – to the evening.  “No, not coda.  What’s the […]

what i’m doin’

is spending hour after hour working on this very site, trying to breathe life into it after it went dead.  Dead as a doornail (whatever that means.  Doornails usually are dead aren’t they?) But yes.  All of my wile and guile, all of my waking and esp. dreaming hours are about SEO and SERP and […]
