New York City      

New York City is one of our favorite places.  I did most of my purposeful shooting there in my early visits in the Aughts.  Our recent visits have mostly been about museums and dining, but I take my camera along just in case.

We usually visit New York in January or August when the hotels are less expensive, so that has a bearing on the scenes you see here.  Some of these previously appeared on the old Shuttercity photo-sharing site and others on my blog — the rest were scanned specifically for this gallery.  I reprocessed all of them for optimal display on this site.

Photo titles and notes:

Red White and Blue — August 2002 (Ektachrome).

Posers — Metropolitan Museum, January 2019.  Featuring “A Youthful Hercules” sculpted 1st Century, excavated near the Pantheon.

Sky Light — Metropolitan Museum, January 2023.  Featuring “Andromeda and the Sea Monster” by Domenico Guidi, 1694.

Future Psychic — Thompson Street,  August 2002 (Kodak Supra 400).

Power Lunch — June 2002 (Kodak Supra 400).

West 40th Street — January 2023.


Swans in Central Park — August 2002 (Ektachrome).

Chairs in Herald Square — March 2004 (Kodak HD 400).

Celebrating Liberty — Hudson River, August 2015.

Pizza — Eighth Avenue, January 2023.

Fortune — August 2002 (Kodak Supra 400).

Lower Manhattan Skyline — from the Hudson River, August 2015.

Not to tip the scales, but my personal favorites here are Celebrating Liberty, Future Psychic and Power Lunch.  I also like the Hopper-inspired Pizza and West 40th Street.  Thanks to artist/curator Sally Wood Winslow, I was able to exhibit Power Lunch and Red White and Blue at the High Falls Visitor Center in Rochester, NY, a showcase for local artists back in the day.  Sadly, the center closed in 2013.

    Great stuff as always. Especially like the Clapton/Harrison “Badge” ref in the 1st, the Posers, and the Ceiling!
