these are older murals that I’ve recently rephotographed



Art by Kimberly Kae – Bilancia – Birch Body Spa, 73 Crown st. 2013.



Art by Gaia – Pronkstilleven – the Stuvesant Building 289 Fair st. 2015

This mural covers the whole side of the building so this is a very small part of it.



Geddes Jones Paulsen and Randiel Sanudo – untitled – 309 Fair st. 2011.



I don’t have any info on this artist



More Mermaids….

Kids are always cool….mermaids 2017-128

There was certainly a profusion of teal/aqua/turquoise…….your basic blue-green.

and then there were the kids waiting…..mermaids 2017-109

they seemed resigned more than amused, maybe it had already been a long day.

Xmas Inflatables

This was a difficult year for shooting Xmas decorations. There seemed to be fewer yard displays than in past years. I don’t know if it was due to the snow storm disrupting peoples plans or a lack of Christmas cheer. Either way I only got three good shooting days in and one was Xmas day. So the haul is small this year but I am pleased with some. I’ve tried to edit ruthlessly and don’t worry I won’t inflict too many on you in any one post.

Some of these are repeats, but I like their variation on a theme.

Last Look at Autumn…..part two

The first picture on the previous post was taken on October 18, easily three weeks after the trees had started changing. I really should keep track, even if only to satisfy my own curiosity. The photo below was taken on the 29 when the Maples finally really started to change.

This one was taken on November 2 different tree, different parking lot, but I’m fairly certain they are the same variety.

And yet another red tree in yet another parking lot. I think this may be the tree of choice for parking lots, though ‘October Glory’ gets a lot of use as well.

Having never mastered the traditional foliage shot, I lack both the patience and the proper equipment, I think I might instead document parking lot trees…….

My best guess is that these trees are ‘Autumn Blaze’ an absurdly popular landscaping Maple. What’s a little creepy is they are probably propagated by stem cuttings, which means they are clones, which means that it’s the same tree watching over us in all those parking lots …..a deciduous NSA ( I’ve been listening to too much public radio, I really hope it stops snowing soon).
