This is the result of a day taking pictures in the city.
The top picture is an amazing graffiti place in Long Island City called 5 Pointz.
The second is at the Highline, an old aboveground subway track in Chelsea that is now a park.
The last is out by the Piers on the water.
I forget sometimes that I live in New York City. Well, not that I live here but just how amazing this city is. When I am reminded it usually hits me in a moment of euphoria over my surroundings. This photo, and the few hundred that accompanied it, is the result of a day spent falling in love with this city all over again.
The bird and the whirlybird, a story as old as time. A tale of longing and bitter jealously but most of all, love and hope. Coming soon. :o)
My favorite shot from a recent photo shoot. I love the juxtaposition of the frigid background of cold and solitude and the warm glow of the girl in the foreground.
Ive been really busy lately and realized it had been nearly a month since Id posted anything on here. Unacceptable! I wont let it happen again.
Life has a way of running away from us. With us.
We forget that there is beauty around us. Within us.
Take some time and open your eyes. Open your soul.
Independence Day in New York City 2011. Watching the fireworks through the long barrel of a lens was a wholy different experiance than watching them as a casual observer. Trying to find focus in between brilliant flashes of light and the dark abyss of starless night.
This shot reminds me of something you would see through a telescope. Perhaps this is that moment just after the Big Bang. If you look closely maybe you can see the God Particle that scienctists are so eager to find.
If you want to see more of the photos I took last night I put some up here : http://fredwatford.zenfolio.com/p601406684/slideshow
