Review of MacPhun – Focus CK

In 2012, I purchased a “bundle” of a few useful applications for my MacBook, and one of the items in the bundle was a snazzy little product from MacPhun, called SnapHeal. It went unused for a little while, but I did decide to try it out to “erase” an object on a wall which was distracting. […]

Vancouver Afternoon

I’ve been taking a lot of “business trips” lately. I have a camera with me most of the time. When I travel for business, I travel with only one body and one lens. So my tool belt is limited. This trip was no different, Just my Sony A7r and the Sony/Zeiss 16-35mm lens, that’s it. […]

The Texas Night Sky Part Two

Happening upon a long dark road, down a twisted dusty bypass, a strange, unusual confluence of place and time, shift into a single event. When an abandoned phone booth and a fire hydrant ignite at once, with an eerie glow of supernatural origin, lasting only moments, maybe seconds, before they flicker back into the darkness, […]

The Dead of Terlingua, TX

It’s hard to believe that with an “official” population of only 58 people, there are so many who have passed away over the years in this tiny little Texas town of Terlingua, TX. After all, Terlingua is not much to look at most days, only in the late winter months are any visitors clamoring to […]

The Texas Night Sky Part One

There’s nothing like darkness. It’s not a thing, it’s an absence of a thing; light. I prefer to think of it as a canvas, a blank one at that. A night time canvas on which one can project great beauty, powerful movement and an almost unlimited range of colors and intensities. Tonight I stand with […]

Abandoned, Forgotten and Evil

There’s something elegantly beautiful about the decayed and abandoned properties. It’s not just me, thousands of people seek out the decayed and abandoned, they visit at at great risk to their safety and health. Why? What is this fascination? Moving slowly, cautiously through hallways littered with fallen ceiling tiles, wet from roofs long failed and […]

Cambridge at Night

It’s Saturday night and the weather is starting to warm, I hear about a lecture on night photography at MIT led by my friend Lance Keimig who teaches the subject. I shoot over to Cambridge, MA and find myself a parking spot, I grab my camera bag and head for Rm-156 where the lecture is. It’s […]

Wall Street, A New York Moment

A visit to NYC is not complete unless you visit the financial institutions that run the world. Here in NYC, downtown on Wall Street, there’s a massive, guarded enclave called The New York Stock Exchange. I asked a guard “Are there tours?” He replied; “They are thinking of opening it up again for tours, but not […]

NYC UP

February 2016 – It might hurt your neck, but if you don’t look up, you may be missing some of the most interesting visuals while wandering the streets of Manhattan. Not just the obvious skyscrapers, but those things most won’t notice. The intersection between concrete and sky, between evening and nightfall, between cracks in space that […]

A New York State of Mind

*** Star Date: February 20th, 2016 – Planet Earth – New York City Rumbling in on the Amtrak local from the outskirts of Boston, daughter and I arrive for a well-deserved and planned long weekend in my old home town; New York City.  I can’t tell ya I haven’t missed roaming around and hanging out with […]
