NJ Pride Month

NJ Pride Month

~It's summer (still) in the city, and Pride, too~ As it turns out, it's been a pretty busy summer, August in particular has been a hectic (yet good) month for a summer month. Hence, I'll be brief.

Backbone

Backbone

A look back at my first photography show I only caught glimpses of the 2020 Summer Olympics closing ceremony this past Sunday, August 8, 2021.

Photographing Fireworks

Here, in the U.S., this past weekend we celebrated Independence Day. This year we could gather outside again to ooh and aah at the magnificent fireworks display over the New York City area. There were lots of people, as you can see in the images posted below, hence, I did wear a mask at all [...]

Photographing the Holiday Season

Photographing the Holiday Season

Holiday lights, season and spirit in images and memories This past weekend I helped decorate the tree for the holidays. While I'm not into decorations of any kind and find the holidays extremely depressing (especially this Covid-19 year!), I also see them as a bittersweet reminder of bygone days, of a simpler, yet worry-free life.
