This is the main northeast railroad through Port Chester, New York. Although the scene is contemporary, I like the older look here. This image gives me the feeling of looking through a window (and not a clean one at that). With no disrespect to the people of Port Chester, I think we’ve a tendency to let many of our towns and villages age less than gracefully. I hope this conveys that sense.

For a change of pace, this is the Guggenheim Museum in New York. It’s a somewhat iconic image; I wanted to do it a little differently, thus the double exposure blur. (Click image for larger.)

I found this while browsing through my image files; it’s from a few years ago. The scene is the view from my back porch in Surry Hills, Sydney, Australia. The original image was rather plain, I’ve added some processing to give it a more painterly look. A lovely place I was quite fond of. Colors are pretty much as in the original raw image.

Some color … This street vendor’s stand was on East 44th St in New York City. There’s a plethora of these stands, seemingly at every corner in midtown.

Here’s another old image as I continue cleaning out old drives. This is the iconic opera house in Sydney, NSW Australia. From almost any viewpoint and angle, the opera house is spectacular. But I think I like it best from a distance, as it rises from the landscape .

For a complete change of pace … Going through some old images on a hard drive. This is one of (in my opinion) the most exhilarating streets in one of the world’s coolest cities. This is Brunswick Street, Fitzroy, Melbourne. (Click for larger.)
