Killing Time NYC Photoblogging

Despite walking all the way up from Penn Station (33rd St.) to the Guggenheim (88th St.) and then back down to the 50s, I still found myself about two hours early for my grandpa’s 90th birthday party. So I had to wander around some more to kill time and hopefully find some place to sit and relax for a bit.

Wait… what? Is that anything like The Curly Shuffle?

Black & white building.

Color building… with leaves! (They’re actually the only reason it’s in color…)

B&W NYC Art Museum Blogging

The upper stretch of my NYC walkabout took me past quite a few art museums, the Guggenheim in particular, which I figured would be a photographical bonanza.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
The Metropolitan Museum Of Art.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
The Guggenheim. So much for that bright idea.

I’m pretty sure he’s asking her if she has any Grey Poupon. And she’s asking him just where he thinks she would be carrying it.

Curved awning surrounded by rectangular construction thingies.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Tree roots trying to escape.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
I think this is the Roman goddess of carving little men out of things.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
And this appears to be the goddess of smug.

Creepy WWI Statue Photoblogging

I’m pretty sure this is not a pro-war statue…

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
First, an overview.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
The gent on the left appears to have gone all Full Metal Jacket ’round the bend.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
I really like the lighting on that guy’s face.

More Random NYC Photoblogging

Some more NYC photos with no particular theme.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
I really like this one, and I really like how the new D300 handles color.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
I believe this is some kind of stylized Menorah sculpture.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Lady Liberty has fallen on hard times.

It’s a living…

Vertical NYC Photoblogging

I hope y’all like Atlas…

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Not Atlas.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Atlas looks kinda PO’ed. But really, who could blame him?

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Atlas again – now with 50% more context!

NYC Public Library Photoblogging

A couple of photos from the Public Library, and one… not.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Jack Kerouac and the library lion have apparently had some kind of falling out, and are no longer speaking to each other.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Closeup of the wrapping protecting the upper facade.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Completely random buildings with nothing to do with the library at all.

Postal Photoblogging

Pictures of and around the NYC post office:

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *

Reflections in the rear window of a postal van/wagon. Note the Empire State Building at the bottom.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *

I liked the combination of the wood grain and the blue paint.

Random stuff in the UPS loading dock across the street.

The Return Of NYC Photoblogging

Ahh, it’s good to be taking New York pictures again. I walked up from Penn Station to 89th St., then back down to 53rd for my grandpa’s 90th birthday party.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Madison Square Garden, home of the most inept sports franchise on earth.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
The post office. It’s a bit larger than mine.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
And a closer view of it.

Farewell NYC Photoblogging

This is it for NYC photos for a while. This last batch is a bit on the bizarre side…

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Air will be taken out of tires, people. Do not mess with The Man.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Umm… okay.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
The service here is terrible unless you’re a very good shot. Not to mention the safety issues.

Penultimate NYC Photoblogging

Almost finished with the NYC photos – kind of a gardeny theme today. Next up: Washington, DC! Well, there may be a brief cloud interlude first.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Sunflowers!

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
I was sure this was going to be a better pic in B&W, but the color really does contribute here.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
A chip in some kind of garden statuary type thing.

Mostly B&W Downtown NYC Photoblogging

More photos from beautiful downtown Manhattan:

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
NYC’s Vietnam memorial, made up of bricks of frosted, barely-translucent glass (I wanted to get a picture of the sun shining through it, but the glass was too impenetrable).

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Um, a metal awning.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
A light, and a chain. Look, I don’t even really need to be here, do I…

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Sky, traffic lights, construction. All the elements you need for a Quality Photograph.

Downtown NYC Photoblogging

Some photos from downtown NYC:

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
I found myself reminded of Rashomon for some reason…

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Which way to the out-of-place historical building, I wonder.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Ah, there it is.

And Yet Still More Battery Photoblogging

Just about to transition oh-so-smoothly to downtown…

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *

Because, well, it’s what I do…

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *

Some pilings.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *

The Guardian Of The Shimmery Door seems a bit less than vigilant, but surely this is a clever ruse.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *

That ladder was a little blown out in the first photo, so I know everyone must want a closer look…

B&W Wall Street Photoblogging

Three photos taken within probably a 20-foot radius of each other…

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
I had wanted to recreate a picture I took in high school, where it looks like George Washington is fending off paparazzi. Not quite the same take, but you get the general idea.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
A more contemplative angle.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Another view of the naked bankers atop the Stock Exchange (I think).

NYC Urban Grunge Photoblogging

Back to what I do best: Taking pictures of stuff that’s seedy, rundown, or damaged:

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Wow, that looks refreshing. I totally want to take up smoking now.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
The interior of the Studebaker taxi outside Caliente Cab Co. Mexican restaurant.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Mmm… Litter…

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Gashed lamppost. Not my fault.

NYC B&W Faceblogging

Faces and facelike things:

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Lesbian statues in a small park near Christopher St., I think.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Gay statues from the same park.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Gender and orientation unknown, but it sure looks happy.

100% B&W, 67% Freaky NYC Photoblogging

Just walking around in the general Chelsea vicinity, leisurely wending my way towards the subway.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
It is The Ceramic Frog Of The End Times.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Just some chairs and folded tables. Not so bad.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Oh. Oh my.

Mostly B&W Photoblogging

More photos from NYC; two B&W, and one that I kinda wanted to be B&W…

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
You’d think that anything with an orange cone in it would have to be in color, but it’s not necessarily so.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
I really liked this one in B&W, but the red flower in the background demanded that it be in color.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
No color/B&W dilemma here, really…

Non-Coney Island New York Photoblogging

I may be through with Coney Island, but I’m far from through with New York:

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Spidery!

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
The color version might have actually come out better, but I think the B&W is spookier.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Just some more fun with lights and reflections.
