I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to capture this moment. It bought to me a memory of those carefree days when the biggest problems in the world included which jellybean to eat now, and which to save for later.

Nothing Else Matters
While shooting around Grand Central Terminal, my eye caught this young couple being photographed by their photographer, in the afternoon sun. The light seemed to bless them, and I am sure that the photographer would have caught the wonderful halo that the light surrounded them with.

Young Jee, the gentle artist of Inwood Hill Park, in New York City, was kind enough to give me a 5-hour tour of the largest natural tract of land on Manhattan island. He was a tremendous inspiration for how I look at nature.
May he rest in peace.

This beautiful moment was taken as a mother tenderly readied her daughter for the portrait that they wanted. Seeing the moment for what it was, I had no choice but to capture it candidly, rather than wait for them to pose. I'm glad that I did.

Mother's Day (2015): While trying to take a portrait of the children, the little guy on the right was distracted and pointing. The other kids didn't get what he was saying, until the photo was successfully taken. When they finally did look, this is what happened.

The Crimson Pirate
Arrgh! This swab was found posing as a land lubber, at Fort Tryon park, in NYC.
This lovely, young lady and a friend of hers posed for me at Kenny's Castaways (closed), after the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade. Her costume and the beautiful woodwork lent a wonderful feel, I think.

Taken on April Fool's day, I'm a little late in getting this out. It is a photo of a hard-working clam fisherman who I met, at the marina. He was kind enough to allow me to photograph him and the boat-work that he and his partner were doing, that day.
He invited me back to photograph him and his crew-mates returning from a fishing trip, with a haul. I look forward to it.
