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…

I really like the work of Byron Katie and I follow her Facebook page. Yesterday, she had a post that said: With nothing to compare yourself to, aren’t you perfect! ~Byron Katie Speaking of FB, there is a photographer that I used to follow. I liked his work because it was different. However, he was always about comparisons and how someone else’s work didn’t measure up, never pointing fingers directly, but as a group, and how they “should” do this…

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…

My friend, and fellow blogger, Tom Dills came up with an idea that he wanted to try.

We’d tried to do this some weeks earlier, but couldn’t arrange our schedules. On Saturday, we got the chance. So, Tom, Don Brown, another one of our photographer buddies, and I got together, boarded the train, and set off…

I was going through some of my pictures, thinking about how I felt during the time that I was taking them. I have been places by myself and sometimes felt quite lonely – mind you, alone is a fact, loneliness is a state of mind. This time, as I walked through the desert, spent time reading, sleeping, walking, or perhaps doing nothing, I didn’t feel lonely at all … not one bit. I was great company to myself. I liked…

Well, I probably didn’t get the kind of looks that these guys did, after all, I didn’t have on a kilt, but … Last night I stayed a work a little bit late (late for me, that is). An architectural photographer had been in the area all day, taking pictures of the office space, of execs, etc. Well, a little after 6:00 PM, most everyone had cleared out except for the photographer, the lady who’d been helping him all day…
