The beginning of this New year has been mostly quiet, exploring the frontier around New Jersey, in the Shadow of New York, sipping coffee.
I hope most people are settling into the new year like it is more of a struggle than it should be. So much of my camera work, from 2019, has gone unseen. Some things, ideas feel like they need to be shared. I’ll do my best to share my extra camera work soon.
There have been cold days and warm days, for the past few weeks, unusual for this time of year. The days have swayed from sunny to snowy. At times, it has forced me to stop, take a moment, and observe the changes in this world.
Camera work for the beginning of this year has been unbalanced. I’m still trying to figure this part a new part of my work life out. I’ve found it has been more of a logistics issue for me. I’ve had to find a way to maintain a video editing schedule along with a photo editing schedule along with other work within an 8 hour day. My day job does not allow overtime.
I did take a break, recently, went on a walkabout around New York. It helped clear my head a little. After a quick subway trip, I trekked from DUMBO Brooklyn to 38th Street in Manhattan. I took all day to do so, not walking in a straight line. I caught up on some of the ever-changing sites, had some interesting food, and lots of coffee.
Even in the cold of January, the best place to relax has still been the forest, at sunrise. Gloves on my hands, walking in the quiet, and thoughts of coffee dancing through my brain.
The last crazy thing I did was rework this website, thanks to the fine folks at Imagely. Tweaking things took some time, but I’m happy with it so far. Its been a while, and it needed a touch-up.
These images, from my week of photography, describe to you and explain the light, places, textures, characters I’ve visually observed in my travels. If you can spare a little of your time and share in the wonders, I have seen.
