Yesterday, I decided to catch the train a little bit later, to delay by about 30 minutes. Catching a later train means fewer people on the train, a bit more elbow room. I decided to play a bit on the way with the Hipstamatic application on my phone. I started taking pictures right way, almost as soon as I sat down. Then, I noticed that by the reflection in the window, I could see the guy in front of me…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So, there we were walking down the streets of Antigua, Vanessa and I. We were nearing the end of a tour given by a friendly man named David who spoke a number of different languages including his native Mayan tongue, English, Spanish, Portuguese, and French. I saw a lady with a basket on her head, carrying something or other. I stopped, pointed my camera, and took a picture from the other side of the street; Suddenly, I heard: ¡Págame! –…

I still enjoy photography and writing, but haven’t had much to say of late…

Sometime last year, in the summer perhaps, Vanessa and I were walking through Uptown Charlotte. I was showing her the various buildings where I had worked. One of those buildings was the Bank of America Corporate Center. The lobby of the Corporate Center is quite sumptuous containing nice leather chairs, live plants, plenty of marble, and some lovely murals painted high upon the walls. I would show you a picture of one, but B of A security has this policy…

I’ve been following the Facebook Page, Humans of New York for a while now. I love it! I love it so much that I bought the book of the same name. The name of the photographer is Brandon Stanton, who, according to the book, set out in the summer of 2010 to photographic census of New York. I don’t think that he could have even imagined where this would go … First, a little side trip: I love pictures of…
