  1. Beautiful photos. It is amazing what man can build. Look what man has built in the past century. Look at what the Roman engineers built during the Roman Empire. It is amazing what the ancients built without the power equipment we have today.


  2. Beautiful photographs. I love how the unique angles offer a unique perspective of the city . . . there’s so much more to see than that perfect post card shot. Nicely done. πŸ™‚


  3. It’s all looks so other worldly when photographed like
    that, like something from a strange alternate timeline.
    For a tale set amoungst mist and metal, sample RUST
    on my home page, or if fiction is not your thing – but
    antiques and arcetecture are. You will find lots of by-
    gone gold at the UER homepage. Just Google it!


  4. This is beautiful. I’m glad I’m not the only person who takes pictures of such things. The sephia tones really look nice. Are the two elevated roadways in Astoria by any chance?


  5. Beautiful. Really nice work.
    You should get in contact with Ikea. They are always looking for new images for there posters and scenes of New York are always in high demand.
    As an added bonus your work is then seen globally and the payment for the print is not to bad for a days work.


  6. Wow, they are brilliant images. I love the combination of large structures and suburban architecture. Beautifully shot.


  7. Not only are these truly phenomenal photographs, but “Glory Be to God for Dappled Things” is the first line of my favorite Gerard Manley Hopkins poem, and the topic of a recent post on my blog. Thank you.

  9. great shots! and i love the after affects. i’m headed to nyc in october and look forward to getting some beautiful photos taken. the steel you captured really portrays the “city life”. thanks for sharing!


  10. I love your heading – tomatoes look exactly like mine. I love that they have some spots, blemishes, and insects try to eat them!

    Sepia photos are stunning. They also made me think about my grandparents’ photos.

    Thank you for this post!

  13. Holy Cow! Beautiful. Here in Atlanta we have few such structures of such magnitude. The one thing we do have is the old City Hall East Building (known now as Ponce City Market) which is 2 million square feet of excellent photo taking opportunities! that is, IF you can get inside >:)


  14. Makes you wonder doesn’t it? Who were the men who made these monoliths, those regular blokes with their boots and their lunchboxes and baggy pants with whining kids and tired wives. Their hands blackened and cracked from the steel. And there they were building history for us to see through your photographs on the internet. Awesome. c

  16. These are some amazing shots! I love NYC! I was born just across the river in NJ, but I’ve always loved NY because of the architecture and the people. There is endless beauty in that city. Love the sepia also. Adds a bit of an old feel to the shots. Great job!

  17. I love everything New York City. I wonder if I was a NewYorker in a previous life, or if it’s lingering warm fuzzies of Sesame Street, or maybe because I want to be Monica Geller… or it could be all the above. I so enjoyed these photos.

  19. I just love New York and all the stories that city has to tell. The lifestyle, the mix of glamour and ordinary, chaos and urban perfection….Very inspiring pics!

  22. In the late 80s, I lived on 22nd and Broadway and worked in Brooklyn Heights. I walked to work every day, across the Brooklyn Bridge.

    This looks the way that felt.

    Beautiful. Thank you.


  23. The second shot looks a little like you were standing in the middle of the road, in the middle of oncoming traffic. Be careful, friend. πŸ™‚

    Still, lovely shots. I hope your fresh pressed-ness gets you even more recognition. You’re already MY favorite photographer, for what it’s worth.


  24. Amazing pictures! As a civil engineer and former bridge inspector, I think it’s awesome for others to see the beauty in structures that I see everyday. Thanks!
