An Impressionist take Terez, my fellow dance student. I asked her to characterise herself in three words. She came up with introverted and sensitive. I’d add gentle – she’s studying to work in pediatrics.

Third Generation

This is Gerry and he’s a third generation paving and masonry contractor from Ireland. He’s currently doing some work at my home. He’s pictured here with his sons Jimmy and Michael after a hard day of work. Perhaps I should have titled this image third and fourth generation.

Image was taken with a Fujifilm X-H1 and XF 56mm f/1.2 lens

This is a casual portrait I took of the legendary street photographer Louis Mendes at the 2018 Coney Island Mermaid Parade. If you live in the NYC area you probably have met him. Thank you Louis for being a gentleman.

Lost In Thought

Fuji X100F – 1/125 @ f/11 – ISO 2500

While attending the New York Unfiltered photo exhibition by our very own Martha Rohl I noticed this beautiful young woman sitting by the window where the light was perfect.  I snapped this image through the plate glass window. When I showed her the image I also found out it was her birthday. Happy Birthday 😀

Windows To The Soul

In street photography, we don’t wait for golden light. Mid-day will present a different set of circumstances. I love street portraits. I saw this girl on a NYC bench and she caught my attention.  She smiles with her eyes, the shadow play from her lashes, one of my favorite street portraits.

Sharing a joke.

I met John online through WordPress. We followed one another, “liking” and commenting on each other’s work until I felt that I knew him as a friend even though we had never met in person. We fixed that this past Summer when I drove up to Boston. When we met it was as though we had known each other for years. I had a great time being shown around Boston, talking photography, and in general just getting acquainted.
