  2. My First Roll: Lomography Berlin Kino 400

    2020-03-23 21:13:03 UTC

    I’ve said it a dozen times: I’m not much for in-depth reviews, especially when it comes to film. Don’t get me wrong, there are others who do film reviews that I enjoy reading/watching. But when people ask me about any given film, I respond in the most practical way possible…

  4. Manhattan Blue in Black and White: A Bridge Less Traveled

    2019-08-05 16:48:25 UTC

    If you know me you know I love all of New York City’s bridges. The Brooklyn Bridge is, of course, iconic — the neo-Gothic tan stone architecture and hybrid suspension/cable-stay design are awe inspiring. John Roebling created a true masterpiece. And, for a number of personal reasons the Brooklyn Bridge…

  5. A Little Rain, Part 1

    2019-06-20 04:45:42 UTC

    The weather in NYC has been what some might consider depressing – cloudy, rainy, foggy, all around gloomy. I might be inclined to agree if I weren’t actually enjoying all this grayness. I’ve said it before – bad weather is fun for photographers Ilford Delta 400 | Minolta Maxxum 600si …

  6. Acros 100: Requiem for $8

    2019-05-14 19:32:01 UTC

    You know how when you find $8 worth of change buried in your sofa cushions and it totally makes your day? Yeah, I don’t. That’s never happened to me. The most money I’ve ever pulled out of my sofa cushions is 37 cents But a few weeks ago I experienced…

  7. The Sorcery Of Ilford XP2 Super

    2019-04-10 02:36:12 UTC

    For as long as I’ve been shooting black and white film, I never gave much thought to Ilford XP2 Super I had seen some nice work done with it, so it’s not like I had a negative impression of its quality but I just figured that a chromogenic black and…

  8. Call To Action: One Time For Botham Jean

    2018-10-03 02:56:00 UTC

    “If you’re not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.” – Malcolm X

  9. And Suddenly All My Tri-X Dried Flat

    2018-08-19 03:08:00 UTC

    For those of you who didn’t see my interview with the great Ed Verosky, he asked me to name a few of my favorite films. Among those that I named was Ilford HP5+, because it’s versatile, easy to work with, yada yada yada. I stand by all those things, but…

  10. Seeing the Light in Grand Central Terminal

    2018-06-24 06:07:23 UTC

    The natural light that beams into New York’s Grand Central Terminal today is nothing like those monstrous shafts that bombarded the place 75 years ago. It’s unfortunate, I suppose, but that doesn’t mean Grand Central has lost all its luster. I could, in fact, argue that present-day Grand Central’s subtler…

  11. Dark Winter

    2018-03-13 06:13:10 UTC

    Never too boldly declare winter in New York to be “over” any time before April. You’ll probably be wrong. Every self-respecting New Yorker know this, so I guess I’m just putting it out there for recent transplants and tourists. To bolster my assertion, I present to you a series of…
