Gailen Mapes61,122Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera  F-H - 25 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-03-25 13:33:52185628CC G+

Gene Bowker66,344The   #Alphabetcircles  Gene's Active Photographers on G+ circle.Part Five: First Name R-Z (the final set)Meet 490 more ACTIVE G+ photographers with First Names between R and Z.Tomorrow is going to be a busy day at work, so I decided to go ahead and shoot this off tonight.It's that time again, I've been doing Spring Cleaning even though it isn't Spring officially yet here and going through my photography circles again to check out what folks have been sharing and see who is still active on G+.I've visited each of the folks included in this circles within the last week and they have been active in the last month (or so) and regularly post their OWN photography.They come from all over the world and their styles vary as much as their choice of equipment and subject matter.There are a lot of folks in here that I've been friends with for years, but there are also a lot of newer folks who you've probably not met yet and who I am looking forward to getting to know better myself.My Selection Criteria1. Actively posting photos on G+ (usually within 30 days or so)2. We circle each other (sometimes for a long time)3. Primarily post their OWN photography (that's a judgement call on my part)4. "Safe for work" (another judgement call)Why you should follow them?1. Add active photographers to your stream without a lot of inactive accounts.2. Find some new folks to interact with who are ACTIVE on G+As always.. if you do add them.. the best way to do that is to create a new circle and that way you can watch it and decide if they fit with you or notGoogle has recently changed the circle add logic, so you can no longer search a shared circle to determine who is in it and only add people that you don't already share. This makes life harder for all of us.Not in here?1. Maybe we haven't met yet?  If so, I'd love to hear from you and I'll be sure to check out your stream. Be sure to circle me if you haven't as I check those who add me regularly.2. Maybe you don't post public? If not, there is a good chance that you looked inactive to me.3. Maybe you don't post "primarily" photography... once again that is subjective.I love it when you shareIt does take a lot of time to visit and compile the lists. I enjoy doing it but feel free to re-share the circle with your friends. That way they can find some great new photographers too.  You don't have to reshare to remain in the circle, but it is appreciated.If you follow along you can easily add 2000+ photographers to your stream too.Gene Bowker+Rusted Rail Images   Here are the others in the seriesPart One: A-C https://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/1KejHoGGhBzPart Two: D-Ghttps://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/R9GFFEnR1CmPart Three: H-Khttps://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/Beo3nKCJS6oPart Four: L-Qhttps://plus.google.com/u/0/+GeneBowker/posts/J2pQM7ZpBoJ (thanks Randy for catching that)Thanks again to everyone in all of the circles.

Dubie Bacino55,195Inspiring on Google+ Curated by Opajdara (3rd Edition)This is the circle I go to when I find myself in need of beauty and inspiration. It's made mainly of photographers, but also other people who I find post intriguing, provoking, and inspiring content. This is a very colorful group. One thing they have in common, besides me, is engaging content that will enhance your #Google+ experience. -----------------------------------------I have gained a tremendous number of followers these past few months thanks to being shared in many public circles, and have met a lot of interesting people in the process. So I decided to start sharing two of my circles every month:  - FRIENDS: those who have interacted with me in some way (either by plussing, commenting, and/or sharing my posts, or by participating in my communities), and- INSPIRING: mainly photographers, but also other people who I find post original and interesting content.To get into my circles is real simple: either engage with my posts, or keep sharing quality content.

Gailen Mapes56,889Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera F-H - 25 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to December 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting November 15th.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.      I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...           Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:           https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about            #circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2013-12-25 12:33:56199619CC G+

Justin Hill22,577338 Photographers :- Due to a post I saw float past in my stream today I am suddenly aware of the fact that I have not shared any of my circles for a very long time. So to rectify that here's my circle of photographers. If you are missing from this circle you are most probably in my other photography circle that is HDR based...if you are also missing from that one then I am sorry as I simply cannot add everyone that crosses my path or stream. Enjoy...2013-10-11 14:09:1333813411CC G+

Paris - Cityscape and Eiffel Tower from Above

The streets

were lit up

with stardust

flowing

through

the city

igniting

tales and stories

in the wake

of the

splendor:

And all

of the embers

led

straight

to you.

This is a 6 second long exposure taken with the Sony a7R that I took while on the top of Tour Montparnasse the first night I was in Paris. In retrospect, it was the perfect time to experience a view like this before I got to explore the city. It was a beautiful night and one I won’t forget.

Paris -  Springtime at Jardin du Luxembourg

It’s always interesting to look back at moments through photography especially moments during travel. Everything is tinted by a certain distant nostalgia filtered through mood and every other external influencing factors. Were the leaves really that vivid? Were the vistas really that inviting? Did the streets really wind their way into your heart the way they have wound up there in retrospect?

I am in the process of putting the majority of my Paris photography online in one way or another. I am populating my Paris Pinterest board, adding to my Flickr Paris album (linked below), and I will eventually launch a travel photography portfolio site which will be part of my main photography portfolio.

A number of people have messaged me via email and my Twitter asking what cameras and lenses I used while in Paris. All of my Parisph... more »

Paris - Springtime - Cherry Blossoms

You remind me

of springtime

as hope

unfolds

from the

pauses

between

your words

like blossoms

opening

on trees.

And I

cling to the

promise

of petals

like the city

clings

to the promise

of summer.

Fontainebleau - Galerie de Diane

(A photo-tour of Fontainebleau can be found here: here: http://nythroughthelens.com/post/83369915721/paris-day-trips-the-palace-of-fontainebleau ) 

This is the Galerie de Diane (Gallery of Diana) at the Palace of Fontainebleau in France (in close proximity to Paris). It’s one of my favorite areas of the palace that I visited. The Gallery was rebuilt in the 19th century to serve as a banquet area and then a library for Napolean III.

The Palace of Fontainebleau - France

(There are a TON of photos of this palace that go with this post with descriptions here: http://nythroughthelens.com/post/83369915721/paris-day-trips-the-palace-of-fontainebleau )

While in Paris, I was able to take a few different day trips to the outskirts of Paris to visit some truly awe-inspiring places. One of the trips was to visit the Chateau de Fontainebleau. The palace is located 55 kilometres south-east of Paris in the sub-prefecture of Seine-et-Marne. I took the Paris metro to Gare de Lyon where I hopped on another train to the destination. After I got off of the train, it was just a simple taxi ride to the palace which makes this a great day trip destination. 

Dating back to the 12th century, the Palace of Fontainebleau has over 1500 rooms (!) , 130 acres of land, and is the only palace that has been continuously... more »

Paris - Le Marais

(More Paris photos from this set here: http://nythroughthelens.com/post/82848804786/paris-streets-its-these-city-streets ) 

-

Le Marais was one of my favorite parts of Paris that I explored. It's a historic district whose roots date back to the 1200s. In the 1600s, it was a favorite residence of the French nobility and many of the French nobles built their mansions in this district. I could probably have spent an entire week people-watching and exploring all of the courtyards. Perhaps I will explore more when I go back :).

Paris - Citadines Tour Eiffel - Rooms with a View ...

(There are a TON of photos that go with this post with full explanations over at my travel blog: http://adventurethroughthelens.com/post/83049000641/paris-citadines-tour-eiffel-rooms-with-a )

I had the pleasure of staying at Citadines - Tour Eiffel for 3 nights during my visit to Paris. Located in the former village of Grenelle, Citadines - Tour Eiffel is in a prime location situated across from a major metro hub with tons of cafes, restaurants, and marketplaces all within walking distance. It is also quite close to the Eiffel Tower, the Seine, Invalides, and Champs des Mars. In fact, while staying there, I was able to easily take the metro across the street to Versailles (with a transfer) for the day which made things quite convenient.

The really cool thing about the hotel is that some of the rooms on the upper... more »

Paris - Streets

(More Paris photos here: http://nythroughthelens.com/post/82848804786/paris-streets-its-these-city-streets ) 

It’s these city streets,

the ones that press on

the backs of eyelids

at night,

persisting and passing

through the cobwebs

of memories

that are spun

like fairy floss

across dreamscapes

where every

passing stranger

tells tales

that skip beats

of a heart

hung on

every bit of

concrete, steel,

and paint.

Paris - The Medici Fountain- Jardin du Luxembourg

Paris is a heady rush: the feeling you get when the earth drops out from under you when eyes meet and lips turn upwards in unison.

There is a heaviness that is etched in its architecture, a solemnity of the inevitable without any consequence because history lingers like trailed off sentences in tones reserved for late night confessions.

Paris sweeps you off of your feet: a lover so tragically beautiful on the outside while teeming on the inside with fleeting nostalgia-laced promises of a distant, yet familiar infinite.

—-

This is the Medici Fountain in the Jardin du Luxembourg. It was built by Marie de’ Medici in the 1630s. Marie de’ Medici was the second wife of King Henry the IV of France and the mother of King Louis the XIII of France. She was embroiled in quite a bit of mistress dramawith ... more »

Paris - Historic Places

I have been back from Paris for a few days now and I am still in the weird twilight phase of jet-lag where I feel like my mind is suspended between sleep and dreaming yet somehow acutely in tune with all of the experiences I had in Paris. Jet-lag seems to work well for me creatively. Who knew?

Over the last few days I have been preparing my Paris photography for the gallery event at the end of the month. I will be sharing my experiences and photography over the next few weeks. I hope you will enjoy my musings and views of Paris.

There is so much to write about and share. I stayed in some truly epic hotels with fascinating histories and views and I got to meet some really amazing people. The beauty of travel is that it is something that is enjoyed multiple times: the first time while living through the experiences, and on subsequent occasions... more »

France - Vaux le Vicomte - View all of the photos (there are more than one!) about this day at my blog including a selfie with the awesome owner of Vaux le Vicomte in the chateau ;) :

http://nythroughthelens.com/post/81721906060/france-vaux-le-vicomte-fountainebleau

This has been a life-altering trip (in a good way) on quite a few levels. So much has happened over the last 4 days that quite literally as I sat on the Metro earlier this evening, my head was swimming.

It’s almost impossible at this point to successfully summarize a few of the days succinctly especially since I am still fighting a rather serious bout of lung issues (due to the smog here in Paris, for which I am now on a slew of medication thanks to France’s excellent healthcare system). Just know that I am currently skipping that story as well as a truly epic day I had yesterday in Montmartre withHug... more »

http://nythroughthelens.com/post/81325345068/paris-history-and-beautiful-views-today

Today was such a great day that as I got back to my hotel, I literally sat for a few minutes in total silence not even knowing where to begin in terms of posting about the day. I will go into way more detail when I get back to New York City but for now, here is a brief (very brief!) summary of some of the things I did and saw today.

1 - First off, I need to start with my current view which I am staring at as I write this post. This is the view from my current hotel, Citadines Tour Eiffel. I feel completely spoiled at this point. I keep thinking I am dreaming.

2 - I started the day at Galeries Lafayette where I met... more »

Had an amazing time spending the whole day with Gael who is the co-founder of a cool company called Rendezvous With Paris. We walked the path that Charles De Gaulle walked on August 26, 1944, one day after Paris was liberated. So much history and Gael is a wealth of information about Paris since he grew up in La Marais and is super passionate about history and Paris.

This is a view of the Seine earlier today. Many of the boats are houseboats and there are even mail boxes along the Seine for the boat residents. New goal in life: live in a houseboat on the Seine. :)

Paris - Sunset - Overlooking the Eiffel Tower

Paris is everything I expected and so much more.

It’s an overwhelming city in all the best ways.

On my first day in Paris, I was treated to a walk around The Butte-aux-Cailles neighborhood with a new Paris friend, Mikhail and his lovely friends. And then we then made our way to Montparnasse to take in this spectacular view from the top of Tour Montparnasse.

I am posting updates frequently to my Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram while I am here in Paris (like an awesome video clip of the Eiffel Tower light show last night, for example!). Follow along if you are curious. Links are over at my photography blog here:

New York City - Perry Street

Leaving for Paris in a few hours.

I don’t think it has totally sunk in yet. It probably won’t until I am sitting on the runway.


I figured what better farewell to NYC for the next 10 days than sharing a photograph of one of my favorite streets in the West Village: Perry Street.



These streets

hang on the

trailing ends

of thoughts

that rest

in between memory

and wishing:

heartbreak-paved,

tree-lined

arteries that twist

their way into

late-night recollections

of the best of times.

New York City - Chinatown Rooftops with Graffiti at Sunset

New York City,

you are:

the tears that I blink back when I stare into the sun as it slides away from the remains of the day into night;

the dreams which are held close to my heart bound only by my imagination;

the sliver of hope that I have clung to in my darkest times as if hope was the only ledge I could hold onto at the edge of the universe sitting between the chasm of nothingness and being;

the city that holds the key to the rest of the world.

----

These are the rooftops of an area of lower Manhattan located between the Lower East Side and Chinatown known as Two Bridges due to its proximity to the Manhattan Bridge and the Brooklyn Bridge. Taken with the Sony A7R this past weekend.

New York City - Cherry Blossoms - Central Park 

We dream of springtime

with our eyes closed in winter

as snow turns from white to pink

cascading down on the backs of our eyelids

in a slideshow of a moment

that is hard to grasp onto

but difficult to forget.

--

This is the Bridle Path in Central Park taken during another springtime. Right now it’s near freezing in New York City and I keep thinking that maybe if I start posting photos with cherry blossoms, the weather will somehow become enamored with the imagery and shift. It could work, right?

New York City - Sunset - East Broadway

(The Sony a7R and spring: a love story)

Springtime:

when the sun 

slips down 

past the clouds

dizzy and

as light as

the weight

of the fuzzy 

well-worn fringes

of a dream

just before eyelashes

open like a curtain

revealing a 

dawdling night sky.

-

In preparation for my upcoming trip to Paris this week, I am now in the possession of  the Sony a7R with the Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* FE 24-70mm F4 lens (thank you Sony!) which I took out for a walk and promptly fell in love with all in the span of the first few shots I took with it.

New York City - Times Square at Night in the Snow

Under city lights,

every snowflake

falls like

little bits of hope

glistening

on the periphery

as we revel

in a sea

of dreams

enveloped in the

boundlessness

of possibility.

New York City  - Above Chinatown

It happens like this:

You squint your eyes open

after walking on clouds in last night’s dreams

and the city comes into view:

a vast glistening kingdom built on the shoulders of despair and joy.

As the city comes into focus slowly,

you shut your eyes abruptly

sending up every wish that rests on the tip of your tongue

soaring on the barest whisper of a breeze

up towards the sky.

And then you blink your eyes open

hoping none of this

was in vain.

It wasn’t.

Big Announcement: I am working on a book of New York City photography!  (all info and context below)

----

I am very excited to announce that I am officially in the midst of putting together a table-top book of my photography paired with my writing. It will be available for sale during the later part of 2014.

In the autumn I was fortunate enough to have been asked to give a presentation during all 3 days of PhotoPlus Expo on the Sony stage as well as speak on an incredible panel about disruptive technology, new media, and the changing face of photography distribution.

After I finished giving my very first presentation, I was approached by a representative from publishing firm who had listened to me speak. They were moved by my presentation and wanted to know if I had ever entertained the idea of publishing a book of my photography and asked to meet with me... more »

New York City - Doyers Street - Chinatown

It’s the little things:

like the way

the sun splashes

against the fire escapes

flooding the walls

with light

in the spaces

between seasons,

or the way

that alleys and streets

revel

in the promise

of warmth

as spring

brushes against

the city’s cheek

like a timid lover

waiting for a sign

of reciprocity.

-

This is one of my favorite streets in Lower Manhattan. It’s Doyers Street located in Chinatown. I have always considered it more of an alley. It’s a peculiar street that winds and curves around tucking itself away from the rest of Chinatown. At only around 200 feet long, Doyers Street runs from Pell Street to Chatham Square.It’s ho... more »

The New York City Skyline

New York City is magical

during the pause between night and day

when the sun dips behind the skyline

shining its light out through the twinkling eyes of the buildings.

This time of day is when

dreams roll off the tongue,

with a slow-motion exhale

at the end of a word

in a phrase

that trails off

without end.

—-

I love the moments just after sunset when the seasons are changing. The sky sinks into a momentary pause before the night sky pulls itself over the city. When everything is devoid of color on cloudy days, the tiny bits of color during these moments that come from the lights in the skyscrapers and the color that streaks across the bone-chilled-grey sky reach right into the heart.

New York City at Night in the Winter - Lower East Side

The first draft of my New York City photography book is due a week from today. I have been immersed in the grueling process of not only finalizing the writing for the book but also picking the images that will ultimately go into the book. It’s been an interesting process since I have been sorting through images dating all the way back to the end of 2010 when I first started seriously pursuing photography.

This photograph was taken with my iPhone during the winter of 2012. This is a portion of the same part of Rivington Street that I photographed and published online in my last post. It’s interesting how two totally different nights produced two entirely different images of (roughly) the same location.

I remember that I took this photograph when I was at a turning point in terms of understanding where I wantedto ... more »

This is a view of Madison Square Park in midtown Manhattan on a winter night during a snowstorm. I have been gradually going through my photos from all of the snowstorms we have had here in New York City this year and re-imagining them in black and white for a client. 

There is just something so magical about snowy black and white photos of city nights...

(More snow photos here: http://nythroughthelens.com/post/78804359736/new-york-city-snow-at-night-we-wander - lots of NYC in the snow photos!) 

We wander through streets

dusted with

the scattered remnants

of the sky’s memories:

cloud debris

that cushions

the weight of hope

that bears down 

on us

as we walk

with our faces turned

towards the city night’s stars

that lead our way

into the melted light

of dreams.



I have been going through my large collection of city snow photographs for a current client. What I love the most about snow at night is the timeless quality it imparts to the city. It’s the leveler of time in some respects.

The Brooklyn Bridge - New York City

On hazy summer afternoons when dusk pulls its soft purple veil over the city, the skyline softens in the dreamy-eyed gaze of the clouds.

And as light slides from the sky making its way over steel, wood and concrete towards the disintegrating horizon, bridges and skyscrapers melt with the sun into the evening.

Central Park - New York City (I am speaking at WPPI for the next 3 days! Info below)

It’s on days like this when the sun rests longer than usual and winter’s essence seeps through every crack and crevice that the earth quivers a ghost shiver that rests in summer’s memory.



I am currently in Las Vegas at a photography conference: WPPI. But I can't resist daydreaming about New York City in the snow.

If you are at #wppi2014 I will be speaking twice a day at the -+Sony- booth about using social media to boost your brand. The bonus? You have a chance to win a Sony a7 at any point when you watch any of the speakers (including me!) at the Sony booth. See you there! :)

New York City - Skyline at Dusk

There is something really extraordinary about the shift between day and night in New York City.

It’s gradual and at the same time abrupt in its magnitude.

The lights on the skyscrapers flicker on as the night sky pulls itself over the city while the sun is still dancing with the horizon.

It’s this sort of in-between time that seems to suit a city full of people who feed off the frenetic energy and constant shifts that occur on a momentary basis.

New York City rarely dwells in absolutes.

Its landscape and structures only seem to remain still.

Sunsets are skipped heartbeats:

full of light and suspended in time,

they are the trailed off, long ends

of phrases uttered

by the city and sky

when faces are close

and kisses are imminent.

This is a view of the skyline of midtown Manhattan including the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building. It was taken during a brilliant sunset that emerged after a rather dramatic rainstorm. The rooftops in the foreground are the rooftops of Long Island City, Queens.

New York City - Snow - Ludlow Street - Lower East Side

It’s moments like these

that the world

stops rotating

long enough

for every breath

to reverberate

alongside

the earth’s heartbeat.

And we move

through the city

relishing a chance

to be enveloped

by the sinking,

seductive

embrace

of serenity

as the city

dreams

along with

us.

This was taken while walking down Ludlow Street on the Lower East Side on a beautiful winter night with my Sony A99.

There is nothing like standing in the swirling snow while the ground disappears under a blanket of white. Everything that matters and everything that is insignificant just melts away.

New York City - Rainy Night

When I first started delving into photography, one of the earliest conundrums I remember reading about involved the debate between technical perfection and artistic license. It always struck me as an odd topic, particularly since I have always approached my photography as a means to express emotion and mood rather than a way to highlight technical prowess.

It's difficult to say that there is one right way to approach art since all art is subjective. It's important though to figure out what you are trying to express. Are you trying to express a ...

I am really, really excited to announce that I will be going to Paris in March. I have been invited by the French Government’s official tourism office to take photos of Paris and other various sites of interest in close proximity to Paris.

What will happen with this photography? Well, that’s the other exciting news! This voyage has been planned in conjunction with the 70th anniversary of Liberation of Paris in 1944. To celebrate this amazing time in France’s history and its impact on modern-day Paris, my photography will be displayed in a solo art gallery showing at The Park Avenue Armory here in NYC in April.

New York City - Chinatown on a Rainy Evening

When does a photograph transform from a snapshot into something more transcendent? This is probably one of the most complex questions that photographers encounter.

I firmly believe that subjective taste plays a large role in deciding what is or isn't memorable. One could debate the existence of a collective subjective taste. However, rather than debate about collective subjective taste, I can share how I differentiate between a snapshot and a more memorable photograph. 

When I took this photo, it was one of many I took of the this street corner. This happens to be one of my favorite areas of Chinatown and I wanted to convey the ...

I had the rare opportunity to get a private tour of Grand Central's unusual and special spots and views today. I got to climb inside Grand Central's huge clock, traverse a secret staircase, see the master control room, walk around with a hard-hat on in the secret underground station that hosted secret service agents and presidents. In short, I am not sure a lot can top this rare New York City experience.

New York City - Winter Night - West Village

Winter nights open their arms up to those who walk through city streets strewn with glinting white embers: alabaster sparks left over from clenched-fist hopes that burst from eager palms onward and upwards into the sky.

Winter nights are the feeling you get when you are wrapped in a blanket as memories and scenes from all the other lives you will live and have lived play on the back of your eyelids like a fever-dream cinematic sequence.

Winter nights in New York City wrap themselves around you like a cocoon surrounding you with the sweetest of silences as trees spin their branches like webs over streets held down by the barest hint of gravity.

And we walk through the city like somnambulists moving through the landscape of a dream landscape: gliding through the white remnants of dream-laden clouds slowly faces... more »

New York City - Snowy Evening on Morton Street - West Village

There is nothing quite like

winter evenings

in the city

when the trees reach over

cars dusted

with confectioner’s sugar snow

and lights twinkle in windows

like eyes full of wonder.



This was taken on a recent winter evening in the West Village with my Sony QX100. The street is Morton Street which is home to some of the first land in New York City settled by the first wave of European immigrants. It’s one of my favorite streets to walk down in the snow especially when all of the lights start to come on for the night.
