Futuristic Flyover

Rooftop Chilling w/ Shades

“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” – Ferris Bueller

And sometimes it looks better with sunglasses on. 🙂

Subway Paternity

I took this photo on the way home from class one night as I was riding the 4/5 train south from Union Square. I couldn’t resist stealthily snapping this shot of father and son. After taking the picture, a woman on the other side of me smiled so widely I could see her from the corner of my eye. I turned to her and immediately knew this was the mother of the child. After fumbling over my words, I finally said, “I couldn’t help it; look at them!”

“Thankfully, I get to every day,” she replied.

Lincoln Center

On the NW corner of 65th and Broadway, near the Juliard School.

World Trace Center 1 (Psychedelic Sunset)

NYC Skyline

This is a panoramic shot that I made in Photoshop by stitching together 3 stationary shots (from different angles).  I used a lot of blur, smudge, stamp, and the film grain filter.  If you look carefully you can see a jagged seem down the middle of the photo where the teal of the “left” sky does not perfectly fade into the more royal blue of the “right sky”.  I might try messing around with the picture a little bit more to see if I can get rid of that.  The clouds in the middle were the trickiest part, however.  This was due to the fact that the central sky was at a different angle relative to the buildings in the various photos because of the natural perspective of the camera lens.  If I had overlaid more images in the same angle this problem would have been more easily mitigated, but I didn’t take enough photos at the time.  Using GoogleMaps and the landmarks in the photograph, I estimate that the shot captures about 115 degrees of NYC’s skyline.  Sweet!

I think it’s a pretty rad shot because you can see World Trade Center 1 under construction (in the “left” sky w/ the two cranes that look like bug antennas) as well as the Empire State Building in the background.

I love this city.

Neurotic Moon

This is a photo of the full moon from the patio in my back yard on January 8th, 2012.

This is the same shot after some cropping, filtering, and pixel manipulation using Camera+ and Photoshop.  I was loosely inspired by my recent work in EEG and brainwave research.  It reminds me of a busy neuron surrounded by dendrites.
