  • NYRR: RBC Brooklyn Half Marathon 2022

    NYRR: RBC Brooklyn Half Marathon 2022

    Before Race Day I think I’ve become addicted to races. I really missed having races between April (Cherry Blossom) and the end of May (BK HM) although I did that on purpose to allow myself to rest and train. July, when I once again will be sans race, is probably going to be hard for […]

  • Adding Art to the Mundane

    I saw this when I was doing a boardwalk run this summer. I’d been visiting Coney Island for nearly 20 years at this point, but the recent revitalization has been impressive to see. That includes ideas like this art that bring happiness and joy even when Nathan’s is closed.

  • Top 200 Photos: #129

    And once again we return to Brooklyn for this Top 200 Photo. photo #129 is: Danielle’s family lives off of the last stop for the Q or B trains (as of this writing). So it’s a great place to photograph if you want to have an empty subway car. It can get really busy in […]

  • Top 200 Photos: #146

    To Sheepshead Bay in Brooklyn for today’s Top 200 Photos. photo #146 is: One of the main bonding activities between my father-in-law and myself (and other members of Danielle’s family) was going fishing. Danielle’s father has almost always owned a boat and used fishing as his method of relaxation. For quite a number of years, […]

  • Top 200 Photos: Photo #197

    And I continue to through my Top 200 most viewed photos on flickr. Photo #197 is:   Brighton Beach in Brooklyn is one of my homes-away-from-home. I’ve been going there to visit the family that became my in-laws for about 10 years. It was so exciting to find out that they lived so close to […]

  • The New Coney Island and The Cyclone

    As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I went to NYC over Father’s Day weekend to see the Mermaid Parade. Well, as if that wasn’t crazy enough, I went BACK to Coney Island that night to photograph the new Luna Park. I have been documenting the changes to Coney Island and so I wanted to document […]

  • Mermaids on Parade

    In reading the New York Daily Photo Blog, I happened to come across a post about the Coney Island Mermaid Parade. I mentioned to my wife that I wanted to try and attend next time it happened. Being the awesome wife that she is, she kept her eye out for the date and let me […]

  • NYC Tet Trip Day 3

    This is part of my NYC Tet Travelogue. See part one here. See part two here. — ?this was originally written on 14 Feb 2010 Life sure is strange.  This morning I was sure I’d be buying a Holga today.  After talking to Danielle, it even seemed that SHE would get one too.  She wanted […]

  • What are the odds?

    One in 1,600,000.  That’s odds of randomly meeting someone I know in NYC excluding my wife’s family.  And yet, due to construction on the Q line, Danielle and I found ourselves on the bus with Katy Ho, who we hadn’t seen since graduation. I’ve often remarked to my wife that it was odd we hadn’t […]

  • Photos from Brighton Beach’s Boardwalk

    A few weeks ago I took yet another stroll on Brighton Beach’s Boardwalk.  This famous boardwalk goes from Brighton Beach past Coney Island all the way to Seagate.  This time around I took some iconic photos from the area.  In other words, these are exactly the types of photos you would see included in any […]
