Brooklyn

Rule of Thirds

I’m not much of a fan of rules….well, there you are.

Park Slope, Brooklyn

HDRtist HDR - http://www.ohanaware.com/hdrtist/Taken a few years ago while I was visiting with my son and family. On the eve of the 10th anniversary of this photoblog I thought I would look back for a moment. This is a morning shot, with some fog in the background. The sidewalks were designed in another era, where there were fewer cars and more pedestrians.

November 6th & 7th.

Our son’s book will be released Tuesday, November 6th. It’s available on Amazon.

Wednesday  evening he’ll be at the Greenlight Bookstore in Brooklyn for a conversation and signing event with Tobias Carroll at 7:30PM. I’ve read the book and it is amazing and makes sense of the seemingly chaotic and random history of rock n roll. Laced with interviews and more, it’s a real page turner for music buffs and musicians alike.

If you live in  or near Brooklyn, stop by and say hello. I live in Seattle, otherwise I would be going. Ian is very approachable and has my self deprecating sense of humor.

PS: I took the back cover photo and the one you see on the bookstore page, via the link above.

Fall in Prospect Park

Film Location

Taken a few years ago in NYC. I stumbled upon a large production set for some sort of film.

Bicycle Tourists

Bicycle tourists with cameras in DUMBO, Brooklyn. This cobblestone street provides a nice perspective on the Manhattan Bridge.

 

A quick note: I added a music bar to the blog. The song that is currently in the widget is a song written and played by our son, who lives in Brooklyn, NY.

Old Coffee Warehouse

The old coffee warehouse in DUMBO, on the East River, has been repurposed by the West Elm Company. Here is a link to a video showing the conversion.

Where are You?

In todays world it seems easy to connect/reconnect. Saw this guy texting on the cobblestone streets of DUMBO, in Brooklyn. After a few minutes of standing alone the gentleman was reconnected with his companion.

Confused?

Spotted on a  building in the Dumbo area of Brooklyn, NY.

I have no idea what this means. Curbing one’s enthusiasm I get….., but this?

Station Design

A look at the Coney Island/Stillwell Ave. subway station in Brooklyn.

F Train to Coney Island

Washington Cemetery can be seen from this elevated section of the F Train, as well as the yard where subway cars are parked and serviced. Coney Island is home to very large apartment complexes, something you don’t usually see in photos of the summer retreat.

Coney Island/Stillwell Ave. Station

This station is the end of the F and G lines. Subway trains pull inside the large covered area and then proceed to head out in the opposite direction. The station actually faces Surf Ave. but for whatever reason, it is named Stillwell Ave. Station. I think the station got a major facelift a few years ago. Stillwell Ave. may be the street on the left ( as you look at this image) of the Station. I have entered and exited from both sides and they both work just fine, however more shops can be seen if you enter via Surf Ave. You can imagine the throngs of people heading to the beach in the summer, cascading out of the two exits. In October it is deserted, aside from a few odd travelers such as myself :-).

Film Crews in Gowanus

As odd as it may seem, film crews do a lot of shooting around the Gowanus Canal. This set took up quite a bit of space, with catering and support vehicles and all. There is still a graphic book available, called It Came from the Gowanus Canal, for $5. which makes sense, but a film setting seems a bit weird. Usually there is always filming done in Brooklyn Heights, a much more scenic place in Brooklyn. The series Point of Interest was always shooting in Brooklyn Heights, it seemed.

Anyway, I included the image of the church steeple across the canal, closer to Carroll Gardens and this corner shot, as well.
