Matthias Church - Budapest

Immaculate View

Budapest is one of the most visually stunning cities in the world. Matthias Church at the Fisherman's Bastion on the Buda side of the Danube River is one of the city's most beautiful features.

Matthias Church - Budapest



Matthias Church has a very tall tower. Standing across the street, I could not fit it all into my wide-angle lens without a lot of perspective distortion, which looked horrible. I created this image by shooting six images moving the camera from street level upward to the top of the tower, and stitching those images together with software. I hope you like it!

Church Street Surplus

The Flag In All Its Graffiti-fied Glory


I can't recall the last time I saw a graffiti-based salute to the American flag, but here in New York, creativity reigns supreme.

South Street Seaport At Night

The New Pier 17


South Street Seaport sustained extensive damage in the autumn of 2012 when Superstorm Sandy hit New York City. Many buildings had to be repaired. The beloved waterside structure on Pier 17 was damaged so badly that it had to be torn down and replaced.

This is the new Pier 17 structure. It looks rather bland during the day, unfortunately, but they light it up in the evening. It doesn't have the charm of the old Pier 17, one of New York's most recognizable landmarks. But perhaps the new structure will be better able to withstand the storms of the future.

Green Kitchen Diner - New York

Color Of Night Series




a photo of a new york diner at night by daniel south




I began my study of photography by purchasing some books from the Borders bookstore near my home. Lee Frost's "The Complete Guide To Night And Low Light Photography" was particularly inspiring. I used to sit and read it for hours on end, carefully looking at each photo and reading how it was captured.

Mr. Frost's beautiful work inspired me to experiment with taking pictures in the dark. I have always been fascinated by the color, texture, and drama of city lights at night. I love to capture shots like this.

Q Station At 72nd Street

New York's Newest Subway Line


The Q is a New York subway line that went into service a little over two years ago. The excavation and construction took many years and billions of dollars, but the stations are beautiful, the trains run smoothly, and the line offers speedy service between the Upper East Side, Midtown, Downtown, and Brooklyn.
