A Photobomb and a Few Words…

I may have mentioned before, but for me at times photography is a form of stress relief and in some cases even therapy. There is something about looking through a lens and focusing on something–whether it is a full city scape or a close up of a leaf–that takes me inward and to a soothingContinue reading “A Photobomb and a Few Words…”

A couple things that I saw while walking this evening…

Despite the calm look of these photos it was quite wind this evening, and I shot these just before it started to rain. I had gone out for a walk as this was by far the warmest evening of the year thus far (66F).  I of course took a camera with me, and these areContinue reading “A couple things that I saw while walking this evening…”

The Good Neighbor…

So here’s a picture of my bike parked in front of Cafe 59 on Allen Street in the neighborhood in which I live in Buffalo. No big deal, right? Well it is, and this photo speaks volumes. Not only does the owner shovel both of his sidewalks (it’s on a corner) he also shovels theContinue reading “The Good Neighbor…”

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)…”

The View from My Handlebars on a Clear but Frigid Evening…

The corner of Allen and Elmwood on a very cold night. I was on my way home from the community center after a steam and swim. The air on my face was cold–really cold–and my fingers were freezing (I really need to get better gloves). I was feeling slightly stressed because of the self-inflicted nonsenseContinue reading “The View from My Handlebars on a Clear but Frigid Evening…”

Hot Colors, Cold Night…my neighborhood in the pouring rain

So I haven’t posted much in the last few days–or a week–for a few reasons. The first is that my life has seemed to get increasingly busier (am I the only one that feels this way?). And the second reason is that I’ve had a mild lens malfunction on my camera as of late. FromContinue reading “Hot Colors, Cold Night…my neighborhood in the pouring rain”

Allentown on a Thursday evening…

Though it’s not officially autumn yet it certainly feels like it today. It felt good. It was also the first day since last spring that I wore a light jacket. Many of you know–either by being a local or from reading this blog previously–that the Allentown that I mention in the the title of thisContinue reading “Allentown on a Thursday evening…”
