Stylin’ In The City

I walked over to photograph this car, a 1964 Ford Falcon, just before this young lady from Italy decided to enjoy this classic vehicle as well as, it would appear, the attention of the photographer. She walked right into my photos and began assuming rather spontaneous poses.

This shot was taken on the streets of New York City in the Bowery with an Olympus E-5 camera.

Note: this photo was published in an undated (May 2010) EveryBlock NYC Zipcodes blog, with the title 10025. It was also published in an undated (May 2010) EveryBlock NYC Neighborhoods blog titled "Upper West Side."


This is a continuation of a Flickr set that I started in the summer of 2009. As I noted in that earlier collection of photos, I still have many parts of New York City left to explore — but I’ve also realized that I don’t always have to go looking elsewhere for interesting photographs. Some of it is available just outside my front door.

I live on a street corner on the Upper West Side of Manhattan where there’s an express stop on the IRT subway line (with a new space-age subway station scheduled to be completed by fall 2010), as well as a crosstown bus stop, an entrance to the West Side Highway, and the usual range of banks, delis, grocery stores, fast-food shops, mobile-phone stores, drug-stores, Dunkin’ Donuts, Starbucks, Subway, and other commercial enterprises. As a result, there are lots of interesting people moving past my apartment building, all day and all night long.

It’s easy to find an unobtrusive spot on the edge of the median strip separating the east side of Broadway from the west side; nobody pays any attention to me as they cross the street from east to west, and nobody even looks in my direction as they cross from north to south (or vice versa). In rainy weather, sometimes I huddle under an awning of the T-Mobile phone store on the corner, so I can take pictures of people under their umbrellas, without getting my camera and myself soaking wet…

So, these are some of the people I thought were photo-worthy during the past few weeks and month; I’ll add more to the collection as the year progresses … unless, of course, other parts of New York City turn out to be more compelling from time to time.

Another shot I took while testing out the camera the other day, this is one row of the market stalls and visitors to it in Bryant Square park

this shot was also taken at 3200 ISO, not somehting i plan to do a lot of, but cool to know at this level its still possible to get an OKish shot

I took a few more shots today, not to many, but probabloy in retrospect it wasnt the best of idea as my hands are hurting again, so going to chill and rest and watch a movie now
