This is the continuation of a photo-project that I began in the summer of 2008: a random collection of "interesting" people in a broad stretch of the Upper West Side of Manhattan — between 72nd Street and 104th Street, especially along Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.

As I indicated when I started this project in 2008, I don’t like to intrude on people’s privacy, so I normally use a telephoto lens in order to photograph them while they’re still 50-100 feet away from me; but that means I have to continue focusing my attention on the people and activities half a block away, rather than on what’s right in front of me.

I’ve also learned that, in many cases, the opportunities for an interesting picture are very fleeting — literally a matter of a couple of seconds, before the person(s) in question move on, turn away, or stop doing whatever was interesting. So I’ve learned to keep the camera switched on (which contradicts my traditional urge to conserve battery power), and not worry so much about zooming in for a perfectly-framed picture … after all, once the digital image is uploaded to my computer, it’s pretty trivial to crop out the parts unrelated to the main subject.

Thus far, I’ve generally avoided photographing bums, drunks, crazies, and homeless people. There are a few of them around, and they would certainly create some dramatic pictures; but they generally don’t want to be photographed, and I don’t want to feel like I’m taking advantage of them. I’m still looking for opportunities to take some "sympathetic" pictures of such people, which might inspire others to reach out and help them. We’ll see how it goes …

The only other thing I’ve noticed, thus far, is that while there are lots of interesting people to photograph, there are far, far, far more people who are not so interesting. They’re probably fine people, and they might even be more interesting than the ones I’ve photographed … but there was just nothing memorable about them.

Pigeons are peeps, too!

Pigeons show up in all sorts of public places in NYC, especially if someone is kind enough (or crazy enough) to start tossing bread crumbs in their general direction. That’s what was going on here, in an open part of Verdi Square, at 72nd St and Broadway

This is part of an evolving photo-project, which will probably continue throughout the summer of 2008, and perhaps beyond: a random collection of "interesting" people in a broad stretch of the Upper West Side of Manhattan — between 72nd Street and 104th Street, especially along Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.

There’s always one guy who has to be different from the other members of his group — and here he is, doing his best to look superior to his comrades, wearing a bright yellow t-shirt…

This was also at the southwestern corner of Columbus Avenue and 72nd Street…

I got everything ready for this and then realized my camera’s battery was dead. So this was taken with my stupid, rubberbanded-together GE camera.

However, it came out pretty good, didn’t it?

Yeah, charity and money is on my mind. Our entire school is doing this charity project which involves researching a charity and making a commercial/public service announcement. Then theres a competition….

Oh, and money because my laptop battery is being stupid and onmly holds a charge for about an hour.

Hi, how are you?

Bike Power

The source of The Pleasant Revolution’s power is this little generator that, when engaged, runs off of the back tire to produce 400watts.

I pedaled one of the bikes during the concert and was providing power for the band and charging a laptop battery at the same time.
