Arboretum Gates

This is a picture I took of the top of a building that houses hundreds of plants in a college near where I live. Surrounding the building is a beautiful, gigantic garden, which I'll be posting pictures of throughout the week.

This is a photograph I took of a small toy knight I have. The knight actually comes with a whole set, but this one is my favorite.

This is a photograph I took of some skyscrapers outside of Radio City Music Hall, where I saw a very enjoyable Willie Nelson concert.

Majestic Building

This is a photograph I took of a very majestic school building, from the grand steps leading to its entrance.

This is a photo I took of a car as it drove by. Mostly, this picture is an experimentation with blur, and I believe that gives it a nice effect.

Sun and Harmonica

This is a picture I took of a man playing the harmonica, with the sun blazing in the background. Even though it made the man a silhouette and you can't necessarily see the harmonica, you can still make out the man's hands as he plays a vibrato

Strange Door

This is a photograph I took of a mysterious doorway I saw on the side of an apartment building near a car dealership. My only question was "Where does it lead to?" Make sure to click on the photo for better detail.

Tree and Wires

This is a photograph I took of a telephone pole sticking up through a tree on that roadtrip to Montauk I'd mentioned in an earlier post. To me, this photo represents how human civilization seems to be dominating the beauty of life.

Weed In a Crack

Remember that tennis court I told you about? Well, there were actually two sections to it. One section, the part I took the picture of, was the nicer section, the section where the courts were clean, and you could safely play tennis. The other section however, wasn't so nice. Divided from the nicer one by a large green wall, it was scarred with cracks and looked like someone had actually taken a jackhammer and literally tore the place apart. I'd remembered it being bad when I was little, but not nearly as destroyed as it is today. Anyway, this is where I took this photo. One of the larger cracks had a huge weed growing out of it, and I thought the contrast between the shadows cast by the weed and the tennis court's battered ground was nice.

Apples Barn

This is a photograph I took on a roadtrip to Montauk. As I passed by a cornfield I snapped quickly this shot of a red barn. I think it is a good example of the things you only seem to find on roadtrips.

Tennis Net

When I was younger I used to play tennis with my parents at an old tennis court. Over the years, the grounds surrounding the tennis court were put under construction, as two new baseball fields, a pathway, and a lacrosse field were made. During the construction, it was impossible to play at the tennis court. Over the years, I missed walking down the dirt path - where I would occasionally see a rabbit - to the tennis courts on a hot summer day, passing through the weeds and by the old abandoned ticket booth, to play a merry game of tennis with my mother and father. Eventually over time it was reopened, and just last week I went to go play tennis there. Even though the dirt path was gone, the weeds were pulled out, and the old ticket booth had been removed, the tennis court itself didn't change, and I like that. It is hard to decide whether change is a good thing or a bad thing, but I don't think that is to be decided. What's important to decide is how you remember things before they changed. My memories are still fresh in my mind.

Nailed Coke

In the town I live in there are many telephone poles, and of course people like to hang all kinds of things on them, but never have I seen somebody nail a coke bottle to one before. In a strange way, I find it quite beautiful. I even took a video of it, and in the video the sunlight captures the bottle's plastic in a beautiful and almost epic way. Then again, what do I know, I just like a good bottle of Coke.

This is a photo I took of George Washington's head in a paivting I have hanging in my bedroom. I received it from my grandmother and apparently it was my great grandfather's. I know the picture is blurry, but if you look at it from far away it becomes clearer, and I think it ads a certain effect to it. Then again, I might not have a clue what I'm talking about.

Printed Heads

This is a photograph of some pictures of heads my father printed out as a bases for his artwork. They are laying on top of a chair I love to sit in in his studio.

This is a photo I took of my grandfather's black boots one time when he was sitting down in my patio. My grandfather has worn those black boots for as long as I can remember, even since I was a kid, but they never seem to age a day.

Painting's Eyes

This is a photograph of the eyes of a painting by my father. The rest of the painting is beautiful as well, but I do love the eyes.
