Newtown Creek

When I saw the above photo on Flickr it was love at first sight. So I asked Verbunkos, the person who shot it, if I could post it. Despite being a “two bit blogger” I like to exercise some semblance of professional courtesy. This goes double in regards to photography. As a fellow artist (who has been ripped off) I am very sensitive to this kind of thing. He replied:

Yes, definitely! There are a few more from earlier in the year as well…

Over the last few weeks I tried to visit all the public access points to our beloved creek, though I am sure missed a few. There are some mallards bathing in the shot of Maspeth Creek, poor guys…

Without further ado here they are. The last is my favorite. Enjoy!

Thanks again verbunkos!

New York Shitty Slide Show Du Jour: Two Feet, Two Boroughs, Three Bridges & Four Hours

As I intimated yesterday I took a four hour photo walk with an occasional contributor to the New York Shitty photo pool and full-time Greenpointer: Noah Devereaux. He was the tour guide. Where he went, I followed. Chattering a great deal of the way. The following should give you some idea of our route.

We started at Greenpoint and Manhattan Avenue at 6:00 p.m. and, almost four hours later, ended up back there. The following slide show (including the lovely, if surreal, shots of the ecological wonder that is English Kills— which grace the beginning of this post) features everything in between. Enjoy!

As always you can (and should) view these images in large format by clicking here.

I hadn’t planned on running so many images form my photo pool today but when I saw this one (by Erik Jauli) I simply had to share it here. Cavorting in the East River is not exactly the way I’d beat the heat— but to each their own. WOW.
