Me and my shopping cart

This was taken near the north end of Verdi Square, near 73rd Street & Broadway. I had watched this elderly woman slowly navigate her way from 72nd Street northwards, in no hurry at all. I guess she had been out shopping, though there was no real evidence of groceries or goods in her shopping cart. In any case, she shuffled by, and eventually disappeared up 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.

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.

For the most part, I’ve deliberately avoided photographing bums, drunks, drunks, and crazy 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.

Hektor III Power Connector Pinout

The pinout for the power connector on the Hektor III computer.

The original power supply with mine (the one it had from new) is a 9V AC 1.5A but they show it in the manual as 10V AC and also says you can connect it to a 12V DC battery (2nd diag down) so it isn’t too fussy.

Shopping for yummy plums…

Shopping for yummy plums…
Computer Battery

Image by Ed Yourdon
This was taken at the Broadway Farms’ fresh-fruit/vegetable stand at Broadway & 85th Street, on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. It’s a common scene: an elderly man shopping alone, dressed in an outfit that suggests — but doesn’t guarantee — an orthodox Jewish faith. He seemed to be selecing a couple of so-called "yummy plums," but showed no interest in the persimmons, or the watermelons to his left…

Volunteering for Children’s International

This was taken at Broadway and 94th Street, which turns out to be relatively close to the neighborhood New York Sports outlet. At first, I thought these girls were either trainers, sales reps, or employees of some sort from NY Sports Club; but when I walked past them, I noticed that their t-shirts and shoulder-bags said "Children’s International". So I assume they were doing volunteer work for that organization.

In the background is the "Symphony Space" concert hall…

Reading the paper
Computer Battery

Image by Ed Yourdon
This woman was sitting alone on a bench in a small "pocket park" called "Straus Park", on the western side of Broadway, just below 107th Street. I think she was reading the paper, but it also appears that she is holding a pen — as if to fill in a crossword puzzle, or perhaps mark some available jobs or apartments in the classified section of the paper. And it also looks like the friendly logo of the "Colonel" — i.e., from KFC — is staring at us from her cup of soda. Why would anyone buy soda from a KFC outlet?

This was taken on the northwest corner of Columbus Ave and 72nd Street. I don’t know where the woman was coming from, but the blue thingy on the left appears to be a dog-bed of some kind. I watched her carry it into a pet store around the corner on 72nd Street…

Diptych – burning car next to garage

Example of how B&W brings out details otherwise lost in color hues. Usually see this in low light and extreme contrasts.

(I’d probably have helped, too, if I’d remembered to reset the camera’s white balance before shooting these.)

This is what I woke up to at 2:30 am. Well, not exactly… What I really woke up to was my wife running around yelling "Dennis’ barn is burning down!" The sound of the roof collapsing probably woke her. I have a later shot that shows a propane tank exploding, but it’s pretty blurred.

As seen from the window next to my computer in our dining room about 10 minutes after wife woke me up (and after I got off the phone with 911) when I woke up enough to realize I have 2 cameras sitting next to me on the desk!

Forgot to change settings though… it was set for WB=cloudy from earlier on Saturday’s walk. Actually, the battery and CF card were both out of camera so I had to reload everything before I could take this shot. Camera’s clock is an hour off for some reason.

It’s pretty obvious the fire started in back corner (left), near the wood burner stove/heater.

Here’s a short BDN article on the fire – http://www.beloitdailynews.com/articles/2008/02/04/news/news06.txt
