This was taken at an outdoor cafe ("Arrte Around The Corner") at the corner of Columbus Avenue and 73rd Street.

Note: this photo was published in an undated (early Jan 2012) blog titled "Amsterdam Cafe, New York."

**************************************

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.

Would you stop looking at me like that? It’s creepy!

Limestone PDA base board with XScale PXA320 806MHz (V2.0c) Bottom
Computer Battery

Image by Toradex
The Limestone PDA Baseboard is based on the Marvell Xscale® PXA320 processor and runs at up to 806 MHz. It serves as the main part inside the Limestone PDA Kit and features all basic infrastructures necessary to build a customized handheld computer or PDA. In contrast to any available consumer device, the Limestone PDA Baseboard was specifically designed to meet industrial requirements. Components were selected from embedded product lines to guarantee the longest possible product life-time.

A rich board-to-board extension interface offers plenty of options to add an extension board with customer-specific electronics, such as WLAN, Bluetooth, GSM, GPRS, GPS, Camera, RFID / Barcode Scanners or even specific sensors to measure acceleration or orientation.

Beside 1GB of Flash memory and 128MB RAM, there are battery charging / monitoring, audio, and USB Host/Client (shared) already implemented on the Limestone PDA Baseboard. The interface to the customer specific extension board offers LCD, SPI, I2C, UART, SD card, Audio in/out, CIF, USB host and many general purpose I/Os.

This elderly woman was standing near a trash receptable that was nearly as tall as she was, on the southwest corner of 86th and Broadway; I couldn’t tell whether she was carefully selecting something to put into the trash, or perhaps looking at something she had just taken out of the trash.

This whole section of Broadway was in dark shadow, because there was a construction "overpass" to protect pedestrians from random debris associated with renovation work taking place on the building above. So I wasn’t sure if this picture would turn out, and I decided to take this additional picture from the other side of 86th Street …

Note: in the summer of 2009, I used Apple’s Aperture photo-editing program to adjust the shadows in this photo, as well as reducing the "noise" with the NoiseNinja plugin. The result is a little better, I think…

This, like several other pictures throughout this album, was taken in Verdi Square – tiny little park bounded by Broadway on the west, Amsterdam Ave on the east, and 72/73rd street on the north/south.

I saw this man just after I entered the park, sitting alone in the sunshine on one of the stone benches. I don’t know anything about him, but he struck me as someone who had been retired for ten or twenty years, and was still wearing a style of suit and shoes that may (or may not) have been fashionable in the 1950s…

This was on the east side of Broadway, between 73rd and 74th Street, as I was walking north; the Beacon Theater is in the background. I was inclined to take this picture primarily because I thought the young girl was rather picturesque as she rode on her father’s shoulders … and I didn’t even notice the exotic, and asymmetric, tattoos, on her mother’s arms.

You can’t help wondering what their "story" is. They may be simple, ordinary folks — or they may be trapeze artists in a local circus, or rock musicians playing a gig at the Beacon Theater. I doubt that I’ll ever see them again, so I’ll never know…
