We took a trip to New York City in early 2019, after which I assembled a set of photos and soundbites I captured during our visit.  I had intended to post these last year, but events transpired.  Publishing these now, post-George-Floyd and mid-pandemic, makes me feel like I’m burying and unearthing a time capsule at the same time.

More ART @ CHC

I am in the process of moving all the photo sets I have posted here to my other site, ART@CHC.  The most recent addition to that site is my New York City gallery, which has some of the photos originally posted here, as well as some new ones and a few very, very old ones.
