Taxi Driver… I’ve been in many, many taxis over the years, and I am always curious to learn about the backgrounds and stories of the taxi drivers… If I get a good vibe from the driver, I often find myself chatting them up, and ultimately, enamored with their history. I’ve met former doctors, engineers, businessmen, airline pilots, you name the job… and, of course, I’ve met former taxi drivers… Everyone has an interesting story to tell… The rides usually end too quickly in my mind… #moments #encounter #taxi #nyc #driver #robertdeniro #night #bw #art #iphone #rain #fog #window #shadow #light #silhouette #chelsea #downtown #manhattan #latergram #backseat #noir #igers #history #story #people #conversation

Power Source… What’s the source of your energy? What’s your motivation? What drives you; moves you to get up each morning and chase your dreams? Have you shelved or given up on your dreams and passions?

My avatar… I took this photograph in MoMA about 7 or 8 years ago. As you may have noticed from my feed, I love museums and I am fascinated with observing and photographing people as they interact with art and museum spaces. This photo was taken on a Friday evening… Normally, the museum was packed on Fridays, but for some reason, it wasn’t on this particular evening. I knew I wanted to shoot this Vir Heroicus Sublimis painting, by Barnett Newman, and with this bench placed perfectly in front of it, I just needed to hang back and patiently await a human subject to complete the shot… Newman wanted the viewer to stand close to this piece, like a human encounter… I hope did Newman justice and captured the essence of what he hoped for… #art #moma #nyc #museums #barrettnewman #virheroicussublimis #archive #nikon #museumofmodernart #nikkor #igers #iloveart #red #color #silhouette #observation #symmetry

One Man’s Pain is Another Man’s (or Woman’s) Joy… Everyone on this roller coaster is rockin’ out, while one poor guy looks like he might need a new pair of shorts… When I first saw this red and white wooden coaster juxtaposed to the brilliant blue sky, I had to shoot it. But the first pic was missing something… People! So, I composed the shot and waited for the cars to make their way back to this drop… I love the facials and body language… #california #blue #color #red #santacruz #boardwalk #leftcoast #summer #fear #heights #fun #rollercoaster #white #sky #igers #tbt #vacation #amusementpark #rockin #shirtless #fistpump #nikon #art #portrait #action

Floating Above the Competition- this is my first “flipped” photo/ post… Taken in Beautiful Ft Greene, Brooklyn, during the NYC marathon a few years ago. If you’ve never observed the NYC (or any) marathon, you must! I found myself getting emotional, just as a spectator. Thinking about all of the individual stories… People running for themselves because the love to run, folks running to raise money for a worthy cause, people running to challenge themselves, of you can think of a reason why someone might enter a marathon, I’m sure you can find a participant running for that reason. I will run a marathon, too, someday… Will you? #nyc #bw #blackandwhite #marathon #running #train #fitness #shadows #silhouette #nikon #50mm #bk #Brooklyn #ftgreene #challenge #cause #love #igers #archive #flip #float #air #latergram (at Fort Greene)

The Met - I love museums. Usually, the structures, themselves, are architecturally interesting and beautiful… Works of art, designed to house art and facilitate the interaction between viewers of art… The movement and flow of art museum patrons between the rooms, collections and pieces is quite beautiful and meditative to observe. Especially, for people watchers/ observers, such as myself. Aside from the vastly striking collections and exhibitions available for viewing at the Met, the museum itself is a work of art to be marveled and revered. #nyc #museums #met #art #people #bw #blackandwhite #movement #longexposure #nikon #50mm #latergram #igers #archives #architecture #architectureporn #interiors #design #blur #meditation #metropolitanmuseumofart (at The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

Hello - this is the first picture I took of this crow. We were on the top of a mountain in Interlaken, Switzerland, hoping to see the beautiful vista of the Alps. However, we were in dense clouds on the mountain top, and couldn’t see anything beyond 10-15 feet. So, as we waited for the sun to burn off the cloud cover, I enjoyed a staring contest with this crow. The first thing I noticed about him was his bright orange feet and yellow beak. The crows in NY are all black. He was perched upon the frame of the map of the Alps. He looked really beautiful against the white backdrop of the cloud cover, so, I snapped this pick. He didn’t like having his picture taken, so he flew off… Fortunately, I captured him in mid-take-off with my second photo (next to this photo in my feed) #crow #orange #yellow #switzerland #interlaken #art #portrait #bird #stare #blackandwhite #clouds #alps #silver #igers #nature #europe #climbing #mountain

Portals to Multiuniverses… What are your thoughts on multiple universes? The more I read and hear on the subject, my belief in the idea becomes increasingly crystallized… Brian Green, the physicist out of Columbia has written extensively on the subject. His book, The Elegant Universe is brilliant. #koln #germany #architectureporn #bw #blackandwhite #portals #timetravel #spaceandtime #physics #architecture #art #cologne #circles #metal #europe #latergram #archives #nikon #abstract #patterns #design #igers #columbia #briangreen

Last June, this photograph was the poster piece for Art Walk in Nyack, NY. I was honored to participate, and I look forward to doing so again this year. If you’ve never been to Nyack, NY, it’s a great excuse to visit our beautiful little village on the Hudson (15 Miles north of NYC). Tons of great art to view, excellent food to eat, and amazing people to meet. #artwalk #nyack #photo #nikon #winter #mural #snow #italy #architectureporn #nyc #architecture #illusion #fluffy #iron #color #hudson #rockland #hudsonvalley #igers #fontana #broadway #flakes
