South Street Seaport is aflame right now.
I hope everyone got out safe and there isn’t too much damage, but it doesn’t look good from across the East River.
Space Shuttle Enterprise floating up the Hudson.
I was down in Mexico when it flew into New York, so it was great to head up to the roof-deck and watch the shuttle and entourage of sailboats, speedboats, a circle line ship, tugboats, NYPD speedboats, fireboats and a handle-full of hovering helicopters slowly move up the Hudson to the Intrepid.
If you’re heading to the Woodbury Common Outlets drive a little further and stop by the Storm King Art Center. Opened to the public 1960, it’s one of the largest sculpture parks. It has sculptures by artist from around the globe, vast manicured lawns and a calm silence that makes you forget your next to highway 87 and only an hour and a half north of New York City.
You’d think after a hurricane, we’ve earned at least a few weeks rain free… alas here’s a few shots from the wet streets.
There was a slight breeze and birds chirping this morning as the eye of hurricane Irene passed directly overhead. Which is all to say that beyond some strong wind and lots of rain our neighborhood was spared any real damage.
When it gets unbearably hot or the weather is just terrible…
the group that normally hangs out at the McCarren skate park moves a few blocks away to a dry spot under the BQE. I stopped there for a few minutes today to get away from the rain, chat with the skaters and take some photos. I’m hoping to spend some more time in the near future with these kids- they’re good people and aren’t afraid to be in front of the camera. Here’s a few of the photos…
Movie night madness….
I arrived around 4:30 and by 5pm they opened the lawn with a mass of people rushing in to claim their space.
We’re going way back now. This shot is from a trip down to Palm Springs I took with my parents during high school. This was some of my first experiments with long exposure at night and while I can’t remember exactly what year it’s from, I do remember the exposure was 8 minutes at f/5.6.
