Shot Of The Day: December 4, 2017





QOTD: Alles Vergängliche ist nur ein Gleichnis.
— Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Backstory: This is the French frigate Forbin moored in New York harbour earlier this Fall during a period where we had some remarkable sunrises. (The boat is French not German but as the Chorus Mysticus in Faust said: everything’s a metaphor…Will we ever see lasting peace?)

Locale: Stapleton

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

Boundaries

Shot Of The Day: December 3, 2017





QOTD:
There is no freedom
We are not free
We all reach the boundary eventually…

— Todd Rundgren

Backstory: The Harbour…and a great song by Todd. Great lyric, great vocal line, Truth.

Locale: Stapleton

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

 

This song (“Come” from the White Knight CD) is truly a masterpiece. Who would have thought Todd would equal Hello It’s Me – at age 69?

It’s all too many miles to you

— Ric Ocasek

Backstory: This guy was very jovial, a nice guy – I asked what year the car was. He didn’t know (it’s a 1968 Chevy Nova) but he told me it was a prop car being used on a Gotham shoot.

Locale: Clifton

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

Road To Nowhere

Shot Of The Day: November 29, 2017





QOTD:
They can tell you what to do
But they’ll make a fool of you and it’s all right
Baby, it’s all right
We’re on a road to nowhere

— David Byrne

Backstory: With only tantrums from a toilet tweeter to guide us we are surely on a road to nowhere. (This is a prop car, not a real taxi…a fake car like a fake prez, takes us nowhere – FAST!)

Locale: Stapleton

Equipment: Nikon D7000 / AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G IF-ED
