Lovely architecture tucked away in the Upper East Side on Cherokee Place. Walking through this section of the city had a very European feel to it, and definitely felt unique in it’s own setting far off to the East in the mid-70’s. I lived on the Upper East Side for seven years, and this is the first time I’ve appreciated the fabulous detail here… the masonry, the ironwork, even the lamp post is a work of art. This image is available as a Giclee print, and would look beautiful in any New Yorker’s apartment. Taken with a Zeiss 55mm f1.4 Otus manual focus lens.
“No Fishing” could just as easily be “Go Fishing” here, and as usual, the devil is always in the details. Other than the wonderfully ambiguity that someone created here, the shallow depth of field, and the 3-dimensionality are just as beautiful as the subtle shades of blue.

Simple but lovely photograph of a scene that I wish I saw every morning when I stepped outside… a sunny lawn chair just waiting for someone to sit and enjoy the warm morning sunlight. I love the shadows in the foreground and along the dock, and the beautifully rendered out of focus background colors, and I’m astonished that such a simple image conveys so much feeling.
