Because I like churches

From a client shoot at Riverside Church in upper Manhattan earlier this year. I've always been taken with the architecture of Cathedrals, maybe because most were built by hand, before the introduction of rebar and steel. The grand spaces, the delicate archways, the stained glass. Anyway...

Abingdon Theatre's 25th Annual Gala

Was lucky enough to be asked to photograph the goings-on of the Abingdon Theatre 25th Anniversary Gala last week and, yowza, what an amazing show they put on!

And, a most wonderful surprise, Ruthie Henshall. Such a fan of hers, such a fan, i was thrilled when I learned she was on the bill.

Solar Eclipse

I didn't have a solar filter, but of course, wanted to photograph the eclipse. What i did have, languishing away in a drawer, was a stack of flash filters I bought years ago. I pulled out the darkest two i could find--one red, one blue, cut 'em up, attached them to a busted UV filter frame, and sandwiched them underneath a polarizing filter. This top image is what I got, a rather pleasant surprise. The bottom image is through cloud cover with a little saturation added. Voila! Eclipse.

5th Avenue

Yup, that's Trump Tower in NYC. 

I was just sorta struck by this image--American flag, the towering building, ominous clouds. Makes me a little wary, but hopeful? Troubled, i think, is the word.
