Apartment Archeology

With my building having been built in 1915, my apartment has a fair amount of 'character.' We can see where it was divided with the apartment next door. Our bedroom used to be the dining room and had large...

Sushi Robots One Two Three

I bided my time in capturing this image of a sushi robot at Yummy Sushi in Rockefeller Center. A security guard is usually posted nearby, and they and cameras don't mix. But I walk by every morning and evening--their...

Notes From Spain: A Meal at Comerc24

Comerç24 is a restaurant in the modern Spanish trend of experimentation and presentation, but the menu is mercifully light on foams and airs. These descriptions of the dishes are from my notes; I won't be able to write very detailed...

More on Shared Media Libraries

I've come to a rather indecisive decision on the problem of sharing a photo library between two computers, as discussed at the bottom of this entry. Some googling brought me to this discussion on the Adobe Forums of sharing a...

(untitled)

Gothamist used one of my photos in their story about the 'penny harvest field' at Rockefeller Center. It's more a matter of having been in the right place at the right time than anything else, but it's satisfying nonetheless....

Damien Hirst at Lever House

Today I happened upon Damien Hirst's new work in the lobby of Lever House, across the street from my office today. I later found out that the gala opening was on Saturday night, but I'm glad it caught me by...

DVDPedia: a fine soft ware

Last friday I followed a link from Daring Fireball about one of its weekly sponsors, Bruji, makers of software called DVDPedia, BookPedia, GamePedia, and CDPedia, for keeping track of your collections of those things. I was immediately drawn to...

Wes Anderson at Deyrolle

New York Magazine's article about Wes Anderson features a photo of him at Deyrolle, a taxidermy store in Paris that I visited and photographed in 2005. I like how they call it his 'favorite taxidermy' shop, as if there are...

Mr. Crack on patrol

The slightly infamous Mr. Crack van in the South Bronx. The van appears to have lost an apparatus from its roof and the American flags on the sides since it was photographed parked in Harlem last July. I had...

The Doormats of my Building

The two doormats in use in my building. I like the contrast in tone: cheery sarcasm vs. flat-out hostility....

50 checks the FTSE

This is another ad I've been puzzled by (what can I say, it's been happening a lot lately). In this case I feel more like a sucker for writing about it, because merely by hiring 50 Cent to be...

What you can expect from your lava life

Every time I see this ad on the subway I'm a bit mystified. I got the idea pretty quickly--that by using Lavalife you can expect to find a quick hookup and be happy right now, rather than a good...

A new bridge in town

Visible from my window at work in the south bronx, the new 145th Street Bridge on the Harlem river was delivered at the beginning of the month (gothamist) and is awaiting installation at about 129th street. There are several...

Poor Zipper

Recently I puzzled over these posters that appeared in the vicinity of my workplace (these two were taped to one another around a lamppost, and there were at least a few more). Why would someone go to such an...

Flooded Fields of San Francisco Bay?

Can anyone tell me what's going on in the solid-colored areas in these photographs? I took the aerial from a plane close to landing at San Francisco airport, and the satellite image shows the same area highlighted in the...

Surreptitious Photography Pt. 2

One way in which my quest for surreptitious photography (originally laid out in the second part of this post) can be described is to say that I want a cameraphone without the phone. The cameras in cameraphones are very small,...

we're #1

This will be one of those entries where you realize how incredibly out of touch I am with the mainstream. For a while I've seen subway ads for "Trimspa," the diet product endorsed by Anna Nicole Smith. Apart from the...

Memorial Garden

I'd been to the Brooklyn Heights promenade several times at night recently, and looked down curiously at this area, but not until I was finally there during the day did I realize this is supposed to be a memorial...
