New Years Day (two photos)…

 It has been cold outside. Really cold. In the teens and single digits Fahrenheit. Snowy, too. Anyhow, after doing a bunch of errands today I bundled up and grabbed a camera and tripod and went for a brief but contemplative walk (which ended with beers at a bar). Anyhow, these are a couple pics ofContinue reading “New Years Day (two photos)…”

Four Trees; One Photo

I came upon this while riding my bike the other night. It was frigid cold out; my fingers ached, but I thought this was beautiful. So a took a photo and thought I’d share. Click it for a slightly larger view. Urban Simplicity.

First Friday…

Okay, so this is another Buffalo specific post and a bit of shameless self-promotion (sorry). But if you happen to find yourself in Western New York during the month of December and like galleries you may be interested in visiting the College Street Art Gallery and Co-op. It’s a teeny little space at the cornerContinue reading “First Friday…”

Three photos from a moving train…

Beautiful NY State. It really is. I took these photos last week while on a train from NYC to Buffalo. I love the fall colors before the snow came. The bottom photo I think is particularly interesting in that that camera focused in a the stream and everything else is a sort of blur becauseContinue reading “Three photos from a moving train…”

Greenwich Village at Night with a Few Words…

I was in NYC this past weekend, and no matter what city I find myself I am always drawn to it’s funkier neighborhoods. I love their color, flavor, visuals, and eccentricities. If I’m in Toronto, for example, I usually gravitate to Queen Street West or the Kensington market. The half-dozen times I’ve been to ParisContinue reading “Greenwich Village at Night with a Few Words…”

The View from my Handlebars (a few things I saw while riding my bike today)

Urban Simplicity.

Sometimes I Gotta Use My Feet…

If you’ve been to this blog before then you know that I like to ride bicycles as transportation. A lot. And I often comment on how much more a person sees while on a bike rather than being stuck in a plastic and metal shell more commonly known as an automobile. Many of my photos,Continue reading “Sometimes I Gotta Use My Feet…”

The View from My Handlebars (on the first really chilly evening of the season)

I had stopped out for a few drinks with a friend after work this evening. And afterwards was hesitant to run some intended errands, not only because of the beer consumption but mostly because of being ill prepared in dress for the chilly weather. Anyhow, I am really glad I did (as I usually amContinue reading “The View from My Handlebars (on the first really chilly evening of the season)”

Ten Photos from a Moving Train, and a few words…

So I took the train home from NYC today. I’ve taken this train numerous times in my life and I still enjoy it. I’ve also posted pictures of this trip on other occasions, but not since last year. I was not going to post any–or even take any photos for that matter–until the train gotContinue reading “Ten Photos from a Moving Train, and a few words…”

Two Pics and a Quick Note…

First a couple notes on these photos. The above photo is a leaf that is just outside the rear door where I work and come-and-go each day. It is hanging by a single strand of a spider’s web and blows and twirls in the breeze (if you look close you can see the strand ofContinue reading “Two Pics and a Quick Note…”

A Crescent Moon, Pink Sky, a Murder of Crows, and a few other Things I Saw while Riding My Bike Today…

So a couple things. Firstly, as I’ve mentioned in previous posts, Western New York has been experiencing an incredibly beautiful autumn. Each day is nicer than the next. And the evening’s skies are simply spectacular. Because it has been getting dark earlier, as I leave the health club in the evening it is just beforeContinue reading “A Crescent Moon, Pink Sky, a Murder of Crows, and a few other Things I Saw while Riding My Bike Today…”
