Some NYFW fun

I have decided to shoot a lot less this time around. I’m enjoying it more. Spending more time just effing around with my friends (see above). Have a great weekend.

July 4

Actually, this post is starting with July 3, above. It has been raining like crazy, lately. Summer rain in NYC is crazy. It can be torrential for a few minutes, then the sun comes out.

Here are some from the evening of the 4th of July. These were snapped from the roof of a boutique hotel on the west side of Manhattan. The Hudson was completely packed with boats loaded with people ready to watch fireworks.

And then, the mass exodus down river, after the fireworks. I really like the way these slow shutters came out.

Prospect Park Boathouse

I attended a friend’s wedding over the weekend. It was at the Prospect Park Boathouse in Brooklyn. I have been to that park on several occasions (mostly for races), but was completely unaware that the park had a lake and a boathouse. I suppose that I should have known better, since it is like a mini version of Central Park (both parks were designed by the same architect). Anyway, the wedding was beautiful. Here are a couple of snaps that I grabbed from the inside of the boathouse.

Snaps from the armory

Ann Hamliton’s exhibit “The Event of a Thread” opened over the weekend at the Park Avenue Armory. The installation is an interactive one. The main drill hall in the armory is bifurcated by giant white sheet. On either side of the sheet are scores of swings suspended from the armory rafters. Each of the swings has cords connecting them to the sheet, so that the motion of the swings animate the sheet. It was quite an interesting spectacle. These are a couple of the images that I grabbed while I was at the exhibit.
