This was one of those moments in New York when you stop for a split second and appreciate what you’ve got. I came across this homeless Vet outside of Madison Square Garden last summer, saw his sign, and just felt that I needed to photograph him. It’s not easy to impress a New Yorker, but “can’t walk. can’t talk. please help.” stopped me in my tracks for a few minutes. Taken with a Canon 50mm f1.2 lens on a 5D Mark III.

I don’t know why, but this photo makes me feel as though there is something either dangerous or precious being guarded behind this scene. It’s a very interesting photo with the intense detail and contrast within the branches of the tree, and the subdued turquoise of the old street lamp.
I shot this in the evening light on a very cloudy day with a Carl Zeiss 135mm f2 APO Sonnar lens, and I don’t think any other lens could have pulled this much color and quality out an ordinary scene that was terribly washed out by the cloudy grey light of the day. This is straight out of the camera with no processing of any kind.

This is one of those wonderful moments that you could easily walk right by and not ever notice if you aren’t paying attention to your surroundings.
Deep in prayer on the side of the road next to his petty cab in Central Park. The tree and the shadows hid the scene from plain view, but also framed the image in a spiritual way. This shot was taken with a Zeiss 50mm f2 Makro Planar lens mounted on a Canon 5D Mark III camera with a wide open aperture.
