It’s been quite the week. I’m still struggling to put into words all of the anger, sadness, hope, fear, inspiration, compassion, and determination that I’ve been experiencing lately. That these feelings which I, and others like me, have lived with our entire lives are now being distilled and compressed into such a short timeframe is … More Black Lives Matter.
A week ago we had the first significant snowfall in NYC, or at least the first one in which I had the wherewithal to bring my camera into the city to catch people battling the flurries. We tend to live in a state of denial when snow first begins accumulating and it’s always entertaining (in a ludicrous … More Snow Days, Fluorescent Nights

I’ve always tried to avoid a heavily processed look in my images (mostly because I didn’t know I what I was doing), but after just a few weeks of playing with the software I’m … More Life with Lightroom

In reality, I would have loved to be in Manhatten … More In Lieu of Manhattenhendge
This 4th of July weekend has ended up being a stay-cation for me, and with the few nice moments of sunshine we’ve had in the city so far I decided to head into Manhattan on Saturday for a quick photowalk which is something I feel like I haven’t done in ages. My first stop was the Lower … More The Great Bridge
