Forsaken Dreams

Shot Of The Day: January 23, 2017





QOTD:
Larry grew increasing neurotic and obscene
I mean, he, he never asked to be raised up from the tomb
I mean, no one ever actually asked him to forsake his dreams

— Nick Cave

Locale: Stapleton USA

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

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

Sun Arise

Shot Of The Day: January 20, 2017





QOTD: When the President does it, that means that it is not illegal.
— Richard M. Nixon

Backstory: Tricky Dick was re-elected on November 7, 1972. He resigned in disgrace, the first president to resign, on August 9, 1974. Does history repeat? (This is my third and final Verrazano Bridge shot…the previous two were shot with my waterproof Nikon AW120, this one was done with a DSLR and I think offers much more detail, at least that’s my story and I’m sticking with it. It could just be that I like this shot and love my City). — TAG

Locale: Clifton

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

Kling Klang

Shot Of The Day: January 16, 2017





QOTD: Kling klang, du und ich, die Straßen entlang.
— Keimzeit
[click here to view full size image]

Backstory: The side of the old Pape building which now houses Eden II is festooned with murals. Staten Island is becoming well known for its street corner art. This is the newest. The music is from my favourite German band, it’s technically Ostrock as the members of the band are Ossies but the style is really more jazz than anything else. Can you dig it? — TAG

Locale: Stapleton, Planet Earth – Happy MLK Day!

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