One Love

Shot Of The Day: February 19, 2017





QOTD:
This is the inside of your mind
Thinking you could be the right side
This is the run down of mankind
Screaming and the terror and the falling to pieces
No more dreaming. No more living. No more social releases
We got the new guard strutting like they’re in charge

— Jack Grisham / T.S.O.L.

Backstory: I have a number of acquaintances whom I met on the street. Some turn into friends over time. Others remain casual acquaintances but nonetheless are very friendly – this grandfather and youngster are two people I see every morning as Grandpa bundles his small gift off to school. Grandpa doesn’t speak a lot of English and we don’t know each other’s names but he was very excited when I gave him a copy of this photo. This kind of thing – not hate and xenophobia – is what makes America great. Tolerance. Respect. One Love. — TAG

Locale: Inside a heart beat (Clifton, Staten Island)

Equipment: Nikon D5500 / Sigma 18~200mm f3.5-6.3 DC

Terminal Bar

Shot Of The Day: February 14, 2017





QOTD:
You used to stand at the corner
Smiling, counting cars
But now you feed, your richer life –
You’ve got a seat at the terminal bar

— Rod Frantz

Thin Ice

Shot Of The Day: February 12, 2017





QOTD: You can be smart as hell
Know how to add
Know how to figure things
On yellow pads
Answer so no one knows
What you just said
But when you’re all alone
You and your head…
You’ve got angst in your pants

— Sparks

Backstory: Pigeons overhead make me nervous, they have ‘gotten’ me several times – it’s an occupational hazard for NYC street photographers. So I don’t much like them but I still photograph them. They are so New York, living on a shoestring, dancing on thin ice. Angst In My Pants…It’s just how we live… — TAG

Locale: On the waterfront, Clifton, Staten Island

Equipment: Nikon D5500 / Sigma 18~200mm f3.5-6.3 DC
