Windows To The Soul

Black And White Photography, Martha, Photography

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.

Shine On!

I’m sorry but you won’t find me on wordpress if you have a desire to see more of my work. I am on Facebook, though. And Flickr. Please visit me there and say hello. Emilio Pasquale Photography. Even though my name is not Emilio. Nor Pasquale. OK, so a bit of history…

When Monochromia first started, mine was the very first post. When I thanked Joe for the honor, he admitted that he had pulled my name out of a hat. Nice guy, that Joe. He couldn’t even lie? But I still feel honored.

Then, one day I admitted that I was not a thirty-something photographer, as my caricature logo and writings had lead everyone to believe. I am a child of the 60’s, now retired. I had chosen the name in honor of my grandfather, Emilio, and my uncle, Pasquale, who had passed through Ellis Island with my grandmother on their way to Brooklyn in the early 1900’s. My father was born here in 1923.

I picked up my first camera when I was 18. My dad built me a b&w darkroom in our garage in North Hollywood California back then. Straight out of college, I got a job working as an apprentice motion picture editor. I retired in 1999 and became a Realtor in Las Vegas in 2004. I am now fully retired and loving every minute of it!

So, please come visit me on Facebook or Flickr. I also sell artwork at Fine Art America and am working on getting a portfolio together. For my third career, hopefully.

Dance Like Nobody’s Watching

I saw this woman dancing as I was crossing a bridge in Paris.  She was so elegant and graceful swirling and twirling the dress as she moved. What a treat it was just to watch!
