New York City 1969

This is me on my first trip to New York City, October 1969. To say that it was love at first sight is an understatement. It was the first time in my life that I felt like I could call a place home. It took me 10 years to finally move to NYC on 4 July 1979 with the view of the Macy’s Fireworks visible as I was landing here. Talk about flashbacks!

Let it rain

Spring is here and with it rainy days! This is another film photo taken in October 2016 with the LC-A+ lomo camera and processed digitally. I do like the element of chance. Of not knowing. It’s a nice balance to shooting digitally and being able to see it all as you shoot. In an age of instant gratification some things are worth waiting for. I used slightly expired Ilford FP4 125ASA film and just recently got around to scanning the negatives. Today I’ll be shooting in Harlem on a photo tour. Tomorrow a workshop in Coney Island! I love shooting this city. It never bores me.monochromatic Chinatown
