Some Photos

Couple in Snowstorm, Central Park, New York City, 2003

This photo was taken during the huge blizzard that hit the city in 2003. The snowstorm created such bad conditions that for much of the day I was completely lost in the park. At some point I found this bridge to seek refuge under. It didn't take long before this couple came along with the same idea.

Manhattan on Fire, Brooklyn Bridge, New York City, 2010

The sky was white and unassuming until the sun began to set. Then the colors lit up the sky as if the entire city was on fire.

East River,New York City, 2003

This photo was taken on the edge of the East River at a cold 5:30 AM with only a handful of dedicated joggers out. In reality, it was much darker out than the exposure suggests.

Poets' Walk at Dusk, Central Park, New York City, 2006

This is a 30 second exposure looking down the south end of the Mall in Central Park, also known as Poets' Walk.The lights of the office buildings of Central Park South peer through the bare branches of the trees here to give this photo the feeling of an urban wilderness. At the time, I felt like I was covered in a dome of trees, yet also right in the middle of midtown Manhattan.

Buildings and Sun, New York City, 2007

This is a photograph of office buildings on 17 State Street in the financial district of the city.I thought of what a city on Mars would look like when I saw the roundness of the central building and so I decided to give it this tint to create an 'otherworldly' feel.
