Somewhere, Nevada. The Route 66 mythos might be a bit cliche these days, and the amount of tourism shops outnumber viable businesses along the road at times. But you can’t help stopping and gawking a while at the memorabilia before you hit the gas and peel out of a dusty lot back onto the highway.
The High Line elevated railway along New York City’s West Side has been going through a period of restoration for a few years now. It has been turned into essentially an elevated park that goes on for more than mile. One can only imagine what it has done for property values in the blocks that it passes through. This section passes by many new apartment buildings and offers views of 10th Avenue.

No matter how many times I travel down I-95, I always end up at South of the Border. Its not just the garish and campy looks but the fact that you’ve passed about 50 billboards advertising it from at least a state away that leave you unable to just pass it by without a quick stop for fireworks or in this case, a quick photo-op in the pouring rain.
This one was shot using a telephoto straight into the sun, creating a nice color cast and giving the image a real warm and wistful feel. Greenpoint, Brooklyn has a lot of great views of the city, and it’s definitely still an underrated borough.
I chose this as my first post not because its recent (which it is) but because this photo illustrates my interest in neon. If there is one thing I like shooting besides cars, it’s that glowing, ethereal, nostalgic and slightly sleazy gas in a tube. The first, but definitely not the last one to come.
It’s finally here, this is going to be a way of keeping you all updated on my personal work, things I encounter while out shooting for myself. It’s going to get really interesting from here on out. I hope you enjoy the ride!
