This is a sketch for a painting my father is making. The picture appears warped only because it was taken on the other side of the canvas with the light shining through it.

Le Figaro Cafe

This is another painting I found outside the wall of a building in Greenwich Village. However, this one stated the title of the restaurant that inhabited it. Though at one time I'm sure it was a nice cafe, it has long since been vacated.

Man With Umbrella

This is a painting I found on the wall of a building in Greenwich Village.

Dear Readers,

  Please forgive my four day absence from this blog for I am afraid I have been carelessly swept away by the summer. 

  I'm sure there has been confusion as to why I kept inserting links to my Zazzle gallery and Cafe Press images and why they did not work. My Zazzle gallery originally contained three posters I designed for the bands Spoon, Bright Eyes, and Sufjan Stevens. However, I inserted the three posters into the gallery every time, only to find that it displayed the Sufjan Stevens poster. I was very puzzled, and after two days of desperately attempting to restore the other two posters to the gallery I gave up and created an account on Cafe Press where you could order framed prints of my colored and non-colored work. It was until just now that I realized one needed a Cafe Press account to order my prints, and I figured I wouldn't put you through that much trouble, that is why there is no longer a Cafe Press link.

  There have been multiple reasons for my absence alongside the Zazzle/Cafe Press problem that I would rather not get into right now, but as of the moment I shall continue my daily photo. Todays photograph is yet another experiment of what happens when you take a cardboard tube and press against the lens as you snap a shot.

Magnifying Glass

This is an experimental photo I took with a magnifying glass placed in front of the camera lens.

New Mexican Sun

This is a stone sun my family bought on a trip to New Mexico when I was a child. We found it in an old pottery shop off the beaten track. I remember it was a large wooden shack surrounded by pots and statues, and if you looked past the clutter of pottery, a beautiful New Mexican landscape brought a feast for the eyes. At last, in reflection of that beautiful state, the stone sun hangs up on a wall in the pantry.

This photo is of a wall lamp in my house and an experimentation with light. It fascinates me how it reflects off the walls.

Soho Apartments

This is a photograph I took of a building in Soho, New York City. I believe in some cases, as in an old apartment building, beautiful architecture can be painfully overlooked when seen every day.

Father's Silhouette

This is a photograph I took of my father's head in my living room. Silhouettes can be extremely creative in some cases, but with the proper editing skills fairly easy to make.

Sylvia's Silhouette

Everyday I come home my cat Sylvia sits at the side door and awaits my arrival, hoping for food and petting. That is one of the reasons why I love her.

Light In the Night

"I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day."
- Vincent Van Gogh

I agree.

Gazebo Weathervane

This is a photograph of a weathervane placed on top of a gazebo in a park near my house on a particularly stormy day.

Sleeping Sylvia

Another picture of my photogenic cat, who's story I've told you before.

John Lennon was one of the great minds of the 20th century. He was a musician, a composer, an artist and a peacemaker, and left an impression on our world. Strawberry Fields is a 2.5 acre landscape dedicated to this poet, and is located in Central Park, New York City. When you first enter Strawberry Fields, you walk down a stone pathway that leads to a memorial sight, placed there after his death in 1980. It is a beautiful mosaic depicting the title of one of his most famous works, "Imagine", and is always adorned with roses, as gifts from those who believed in what he stood for. This is another addition to the countless photos that have already been taken of this mosaic. However, it is not as much for pictorial purposes, as it is for memorial purposes.

I love collecting gourds and pumpkins around the time of Halloween. I bought one of these guards homegrown, off of an elderly lady in the neighborhood, while I am unsure to the origin of the other gourd.

Eye In White

This is a photograph I took a year ago, of a close-up of my eye.

Turning Guard

This is a guard I noticed on a balcony at the Natural History Museum. I thought this photograph would make a decent observation of light.

Scoreboard Clouds

On the same block that my house is located there is a football field for a public school. This is a photograph of the back of the scoreboard on that football field on a particularly cloudy day.

Facing the Light

I have had this figure ever since I could remember. Over the years of my childhood parts of its body fell off, including the original stand. This photograph is an experimentation with light, which I intend to be doing more of for a change, instead of the dark and mysterious pictures I have taken in the past.

This is a photograph of the gravel driveway on the side of my house. You may enlarge it if you wish to view the detail.

Independence Day

Today is the day dedicated to the bravery of our forefathers. Today is the day America shines as a country, as a whole. Today is the day a group of colonies became a nation. Today is the first day in the history of the world, that a colony broke away from its mother country.

Shack and Anchor

This is a photograph I took on a vacation in Block Island - a small paradise located off the coast of Rhode Island. The anchor is hard to notice at first, but if you look closely you can see it is leaning against the shack.

Black Hat

I have owned this black magician's hat since I was about five years old and it still fits. This is a photograph I took after I had thrown it into the air. I had done a series of hat shots that day but this was my personal favorite.
