Vivienne Gucwa (travelinglens)1,797,935This is the official page for this awesome event. Led by myself (Alan Shapiro and Sharon Strandskov were there in spirit :) ) The meeting up point is Columbus Circle at 1:00 pm.  We have a nice path planned that will include several really beautiful locations throughout Central Park including (but subject to change): The Mall (and Literary Walk), Bethesda Fountain, Bow Bridge, Shakespeare's Garden, Strawberry Fields and Belvedere Castle! We also have some fun ideas up our sleeves for everyone that will utilize this event page space (particularly the shared album). Bring your walking shoes and a smile. This walk is open to everyone with or without a camera. Even if you don't have a camera but just want to come and celebrate, feel free! This event is all about celebrating the awesomeness of G+ on its one year anniversary! :) --- #gplusanniversary #gplusanniversarynycThe Official NYC Google Plus One Year Anniversary Photowalk2012-06-30 13:00:0066

An amazing staircase at an abandoned psychiatric hospital. It's nice to see beauties like this still in relatively good shape (aside from the graffiti) after years of abandonment.

Autumn...and the Solitude of the Lake
Every time I come back to Google+ I feel like it's been months since my last post. And every time I finally do post something I vow to keep up with it. I'll save all that this time around.

Lots has happened in the past four months. I quit my job as an engineer in the NYC-area and moved with my wife and baby to Lima, Peru where we'll be pursuing much more satisfying careers. Engineering just wasn't doing it for me. I'm happiest behind a camera.

I've been in Lima for almost four months now and we've adjusted to life here really well. I still miss my old home occasionally though...especially around fall when the leaves turn and paint the city's green spaces in reds, oranges, and yellows.

Since I won't be there for a few years, here's one from a few years back from Central Park's Lake.... more »

Tango in the Plaza

One of my favorite images so far from my recent trip to Argentina. I was strolling around the trendy San Telmo neighborhood of Buenos Aires and came upon Dorrego Plaza. It was a weekday, so not many people were there. I was lucky enough to catch this couple dancing in the middle of the plaza though.

Empowering Women...and Puriy Peru
Please take a moment to help out our new social enterprise - Puriy Peru. In a nutshell, this non-government organization based in Lima, Peru aims to empower women who have been victims of violence and who live in the impoverished district of Villa El Salvador by providing the job training necessary to acquire stable jobs. They also provide personal development workshops, psychiatric counseling, and a library space for the women's children.

However, all this comes at a cost. They've launched their official crowd-funding campaign to help acquire the funds needed to keep the project alive.

Please read, share, and if you can donate. With the power of social media we can easily get the word out to enough people and reach the goal.

If you have any questions about the organization, please feel free to ask. Below is the... more »

The Monotony of Winter
Winter in Lima can get pretty monotonous. This is a typical day with gray, overcast skies. We can go days, even weeks, without seeing the sun. When it finally does come out, often times it's just a little peek.

The bright side of this is that there's soft, diffused light everywhere I go. Also, it rarely rains. Rainfall here is just a light mist.

Lima Street Vendor
This is one of my favorites from Lima so far. The struggle on the streets here is very real. It's not uncommon to see these women's children also standing on a corner selling candy for what would be pocket change for most of us.

Last Breaths Before Eternal Slumber

There's a sad story behind this image shot in a small fishing town in Ilo, Peru.

I came upon this pelican while roaming around the seaport just after sundown. I immediately mounted my camera and wide-angle lens on my tripod and set up as close as I could without disturbing its nap. A few times I got a bit too close. It would open its eyes, move its wings a bit, then settle back into its sleep. I thought nothing of it and continued shooting, watching its slow, undulating breaths matching that of the waves crashing on the shore. Once I was satisfied I packed up and walked off.

About five minutes later, before leaving the area, I walked by this same spot and noticed the pelican flopping around, apparently convulsing. It continued for a minute or two before laying completely motionless. I was stunned to see it no longer breathing.... more »

About five minutes later, before leaving the area, I walked by this same spot and noticed the pelican flopping around, apparently convulsing. It continued for a minute or two before laying completely motionless. I was stunned to see it no longer breathing. I'm not sure what it was. Maybe because I felt we shared a nice, peaceful moment just minutes earlier, enjoying the ebb and flow of life around us. I was deeply affected.

Sadly, after seeing many more pelican cadavers on the shore in another area nearby, I learned from some locals that the reason so many are dying is due to over-fishing and water contamination from local mining. It's heartbreaking seeing the effects these industries are having on the local ecosystem.

Question for my photographer friends...

Does anyone know of a good photo print lab that delivers to Peru? Preferably a local one so I can avoid the high shipping charges.

Thanks in advance!

Hey everyone!

Been a while since I've checked in here. Since my last post the family and I have moved from Jersey City to Lima, Peru. Today marks a week since we've been down here and we plan on being here at least 2-3 years. We're currently staying in Santa Anita until we find a place a little farther west. Santa Anita is a busy, gritty, working class neighborhood and also happens to be a street photographer's dream. Great opportunity for me to develop that area of my photography. The problem is I wouldn't dare go out with my camera gear alone here. Well...at least not yet. I'm constantly advised to not even pull out my cellphone on the street. Sigh. A bit alarmist? Maybe. But I'll have to feel the area out a bit before deciding how risky I want to be.

So...are there any photographers here in the Lima area that are willing to meet up for some shooting? Or... more »

So...are there any photographers here in the Lima area that are willing to meet up for some shooting? Or if anyone knows someone in the area I'd greatly appreciate you passing this on.

I know +Colby Brown had a workshop down here this past year, or maybe the year before. Colby, if you can offer any tips I'd appreciate it.

Thanks for reading. Hopefully I'll have some great street shots soon...and still have all my gear. :)

One of my favorite day trips while in Barcelona was to the quiet city of Girona. Its lazy river made for some beautiful reflections of the sky and surrounding colorful buildings. We had a great time getting lost on the cobblestone back streets. More to come!

The Apprentice
It's about that time to start teaching the little guy the basics. For now though, he's happy taking the lens cap on and off.  Every once in a while he would put the camera to his face and look through the viewfinder saying cheese, but as soon as I put my camera up to catch it he would run over to me saying pictures, pictures! He totally understands the difference between my "big" camera and the toy.

This is also for #FeelGoodFriday , because few things feel as good as my son holding a camera. :)

Help Venezuela

The little I've seen about what's going on in Venezuela has been horrific. What's even more horrific is the seemingly nonexistent world response. We have to do what little we can to help.

Please take those few minutes to do something that can help a nation. At the very least share this so we can help reach others.

Thanks.

Potty time is the best time for catching up on my feeds.

This was his first time peeing in his potty. I had to bribe him with my cellphone. It may have been a fluke though since he hasn't done it again since. Sneaking this in before the day's out for #WeAreParents .

Closed Salon
I recently purchased a few of the VSCO Lightroom preset packs and it's made processing so much fun. Since I haven't been exploring in a long while I wanted to dig into the archives and apply some of the presets to those images. I was actually able to salvage a few that I couldn't really do much with before. This is one of those images, from the salon of an abandoned geriatric hospital.

Draping the Giants
Detailed shot of lower Manhattan from the Liberty/Ellis Island ferry. The fog had lifted quite a bit by this time. I loved how it was still hiding part of the new 1 World Trade Center. Days like this will afford some beautifully dramatic views once that observation deck is opened.

Moody Manhattan
Had a chance to finally visit Liberty and Ellis Island this past weekend. The weather wasn't playing very nice. When we first pulled out of Battery Park on the ferry a wintry mix was coming down and the fog was blanketing Manhattan. It wasn't until we were heading back from Ellis Island that the fog lifted a bit uncovering most of the iconic skyscrapers, offering us a beautiful view. If you look close enough you can spot the Empire State Building as well as the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges. Quite a different skyline than the first immigrants who landed on Ellis Island saw. I love New York.

Looking For Breakfast
It's amazing how I grew up in Florida and never noticed the beautiful ibises. Now I see them everywhere. I took a stroll to a small park in Fort Pierce and caught this little guy looking for some breakfast.

Goodbye Summer, Goodbye Fresh Berries

A strawberry macro for #MacroMonday. Delicious, fresh strawberries are one of the things I miss most when summer's over. 

This was shot with an iPhone 4S (with Olloclip macro lens) in Hipstamatic using the Loftus lens and Robusta film.

Diego and the Sunflowers
It's been a while since I've posted anything here. Been super busy with work and family. A few weekends ago we took a little day trip out to Long Island's North Fork and came across a beautiful sunflower field. It was actually my first time seeing one. Diego was loving every minute of it...and so was his camera-wielding daddy. :)

Say 'What' Again...I Dare You!
The plan was to go strawberry picking with the family for Father's Day. We got to the farm only to find out that they no longer sell from there. So...what was plan B? An alpaca farm, of course! I had been there before and remembered it was only a few miles away from where we were.

This guy struck me as the Samuel L. Jackson of the alpacas. The look he shot me was perfect.

New gear in the market and on Oggl - the Madalena lens and Robusta film. I've taken one shot so far and I'm already in love.
This is the view of a rainy NYC from my Jersey City rooftop.

The view of Jersey City and lower Manhattan from the south end of Liberty State Park. Among the landmarks are the Goldman Sachs building (Jersey City), the almost completed 1 World Trade Center, Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, Woolworth Building, and a tiny Brooklyn Bridge on the far right.

An Ambience of Abandonment...
My preferred surroundings. There's something so tranquilizing about an environment like this. The only sounds being the occasional water drop, the wind blowing through a broken window, or the crackling of debris underneath my boots. A bit ironic given the history of these institutions.
