It’s not often I find a picture which has to be displayed upside down…I tried all the other options and was satisfied that this one’s best…

Photographing NYC for 25 years, six of them while driving a New York City taxi. Trying very hard to capture the city as life unfolds, meaning I never stage any of my photos! Also I am a close confidant of the immortal Dave Beckerman, (quintessential NYC photographer) and owner of the first photography blog in the known universe.

I don’t know how you consistently find such amazing images. Love it.
like it! kinda weird though with the girl in the sand.
Thanks…Always something new at Coney…
First it was “ahhh” then the head made me “!!!!!!!!!!!”
Think how happy I was when I developed the film and saw her face for the first time!
Amazing website – huge. This image must be frustrating for you though – great subject, but awkward composition- Straight away, as a viewer, I wanted to turn it… is that why you felt compelled to comment on it being upside down?
Just read your last comment and realized what had happened… with your natural instinct for composition- had you seen the head you would (maybe) have framed differently? Looking at it yet again though – you probably wouldn’t bother showing it if the head wasn’t there… or even taking it. Weird man – one of those- you must have been aware of something there.
Thanks Mick! If you always knew when you had stumbled upon something special, then the proper care and expertise would almost always be used. I just snap away and hope for the best…The surprises which follow after developing the film, “are priceless”.
