Bethesda Terrace at Night (2020)

Moving Forward


2020 has been a challenging year. Everyone knows someone who has lost someone, and many of us have lost people who were very dear to us.

We can't change what's happened. We'll never recover what's been lost. All we can do is stay strong and move forward with positive intentions and a new appreciation for what's truly important.

Live fully, love passionately, create fearlessly. Better days lie ahead. Every moment is precious, and there is not time to waste.

Night View Of The Bow Bridge - Central Park (2020)

Romantic Reflections



a photo of the bow bridge in central park at night



The elegant curves of Central Park's Bow Bridge have been featured in movies and television shows.

Across the water are some of New York's most exclusive residential properties. The building with the tall towers is The Eldorado (with the tall towers). The Dakota, where John Lennon lived, is just beyond the left edge of the frame.

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!

Distressed Brick and Air Conditioners

Summer In The City

One of the unique experiences of city life in the summertime is having the condensation of air conditioners drip on you as you make your way down the sidewalk. Summer has its challenges, but we all would do well to savor its sweet rewards.

The Oculus - New York

An Instant Architectural Classic

Here's another example of the "popular subject" problem. The Oculus has been open for about six month. Tourists and photo enthusiasts flock here in droves, snapping pictures, day in and day out. Is it possible to get a different view than everyone else?

That may be a tall order, but here are some ideas to consider when looking for your own view.

- Eliminate clutter. Shoot over the crowds and isolate details. (I did my best to eliminate people from this shot.)

- If you can't eliminate clutter, embrace it. Show how busy the place is by adding a human element. (Doesn't apply in this example.)

- Focus on shapes, lines, and architectural details. Draw the viewer's eye in to the image. 

- You can use symmetry or asymmetry, but make certain that your choice is a conscious decision. (From where I was standing, symmetry wasn't possible, so I created an asymmetrical composition.)

- Time your visit with a special event or season. (Notice the Christmas decorations in the photo.)

Flatiron Building at Sunset

Casting New Light on a Landmark

I love to photograph well-known landmarks. I like the challenge of looking for a way to bring my personal touch to a place that has been photographed countless times.

Here's a recent shot of the Flatiron Building in New York captured in the warm glow of sunset with one of my favorite lenses.

The Church of St Catherine of Siena

In additional to serving local parishioners, The Church of St. Catherine of Siena on the Upper East Side of Manhattan serves the staff and visitors of two neighboring hospitals - The Hospital for Special Surgery and the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

St. Catherine of Siena, a Fourteenth-Century Dominican philosopher and theologian, is one of the two patron saints of Italy (the other being St. Francis of Assisi) and one of six patron saints of Europe.

The church seems modest as one walks past, but it is beautifully kept by the Dominicans. If you are in the neighborhood, please consider stopping by for a few moments of reflection. Visitors are always welcome.
