In New York, I shoot the urban landscape and even when I travel to states with amazing nature scenes I still tend to gravitate the to urban and industrial areas.  Here’s a beautiful Salt Lake sunrise.

This bridge gets little love in New York with all the other iconic bridges that get regularly photographed but its many and interesting angles create its own special beauty.

Working my way around all 20 bridges that connect Manhattan to another landmass. Most are along the Harlem River. Many are nondescript. This bridge is a rail bridge and does not carry any auto traffic. Like almost all my work, this image was made at sunrise.

There are three bridges in this image: The pedestrian bridge, the Triboro Bridge off to the right and the Hell Gate Bridge to the left. Opened in 1951, this footbridge connects Manhattan at 103rd St to the island and provides access to the parks and ballfields. My wife grew up in this neighborhood and she remembers walking it as a child.

In Brooklyn Bridge Park one afternoon last week shooting the Brooklyn Bridge as the sun began to set. As I looked up river, I saw the lights of the Manhattan Bridge and the Empire State Building stating to glow in the twilight.

When I finished processing this and saw the stunning colors, I wondered if I had substantively changed any of the original colors. I went back to the original raw images and smiled when I saw that these were the original colors on that winter sunrise morning.

Everytime I think that I have shot the Manhattan Bridge from every angle, I see one more. Lower Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge peek out from under the overpass.

Last Saturday I was out shooting the lesser photographed of all the East River bridges, the Williamsburg Bridge. It was a rainy, sloppy day so it took some discipline to go out a make some images. As I looked at the bridge I saw it in my minds eye captured in a style reminiscent of the era in which it was built between 1896 and 1903.

St. Patrick’s Cathedral

Out on a date with my wife recently, we were walking through the city and saw the work going on in St. Patrick’s Cathedral and went inside to take a look. Scaffolding could be seen in almost every visible area and surrounded the main altar which shone brightly in the work lights. The lights and the intricate design of the scaffolding created a beautiful lacework feel to the inside. I like scaffolding. For me it always holds the promise of renewal and something beautiful to come and the varied angles in work lights capture your attention. Can’t wait to see what it will look like when it is finished.
