For the first time in several years, I paid a trip to the Big Apple (or, as one might call it in Spanish, la Gran Manzana) without my Nikon in tow. I couldn’t resist capturing a few snaps with my handy-dandy iPhone 5S. Following are a few of the images which I managed to preserve for posterity’s sake. A flower vendor and several fashionable young passers-by at Penn Station. Here is a fast food kiosk in Penn Station. The name […]
Sunday morning, 6 a.m. Streetlamps still flooded Lexington Avenue, and the first hint of light was barely detectable in the skies overhead. In search of an elusive breakfast joint, I settled for a medium coffee from a national chain known for their remarkably strong brews. My husband, Jeff, was trying to hold out until we could find the restaurant. With the styrofoam cup nestled snugly in the crook of my palm, and my Nikon D-SLR swinging from the strap around […]
What does it look like inside the mind of someone whose career is inextricably linked to his or her creativity? This is a question whose answer I hoped to discover in a recent interview with NYC-based artist Brian Josselyn, who throughout the course of his artistic career has produced an impressive oeuvre of paintings, such as the one featured at left, Flatiron Building. Josselyn uses the term “luscious realism” to describe his style of painting, characterized by thick brush strokes and vivid […]
This post is dedicated to our lovely feathered friends, who are truly quite stunning creatures, when you really stop to think about it. The first photo in this series was captured last weekend in Ocean City, New Jersey, where the seagulls practically outnumber the beachgoers. The following photo features a seagull soaring over an uprooted tree awash in the murky waters of the Mississippi River, just south of Saint Anthony Falls in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This little guy (or girl) is […]

Today, we depart for Central Europe from JFK International Airport. Here are a few images captured yesterday in New York City. Statuettes on a store shelf somewhere in Midtown. Reflections of Manhattan skyscrapers. This little girl was imitating her mother (not pictured), who was trying to hail a cab. It was absolutely adorable, so I snapped a picture and turned it into a digital collage, the end result of which you see here. Mmm . . . coffee.
Visits to New York are like fingerprints: no two are ever alike. Here are some images from my most recent trip to the greatest American city (and, some would argue, the greatest city on earth). You decide. Painting with light from the Brooklyn Bridge. It was Passover during our visit, and many people were dressed for the Sabbath. (I’m not fluent in Hebrew, so if anyone could translate this for me, that would be awesome.) Cool artwork in the Bowling […]
Since moving to Philadelphia eight months ago, I’ve been snapping photos of the city ad nauseum. In this post, I continue the trend with a few recent photographs of the Betsy Ross House and the Free Library of Philadelphia. In addition, a recent day trip to New York yielded several interesting photographs, which can be found by scrolling towards the bottom of this post. A Little Philly Betsy Ross House. Colorful newspaper vendors. And here, a quick message from our […]
