Spooky how many cameras there were in every direction in NYC. This one made me realize that we may catch the UK yet as far as eyes on the street.

I don't photowalk for the prizes, but they sure do add a nice little twist to it. I had a hard time choosing between my images, I had looked at a lot of the others which have been submitted already and I didn't see any that I thought could match up to the great images already there. None of my 'selects' looked like they really captured what I was going for nor would they be 'better' than others already up there. These two shots however seemed to say best what I saw and felt that day.
This first one seemed to have a kind of 'Half Life' twist to it, being watched on the streets by the security cam up high, hiding in plain view in the middle of the richly saturated (yet gritty) expanse of colorful background.
The second was a view from the Highline, which is a magnificent new park, surrounded by the timeless architecture of NYCs peaks and canyons. This one is 'The end of the line', and yet NYC is just beginning past the end of this park.
Shot while getting set up for the WorldWide Photowalk - NYC/Highline event on Saturday. More to follow on that soon.
I shot a short video of the walkers assembling and getting started:

My favorite shoot of the year, and I think I'm getting better each time. Like always I DID bring the tripod but the boat was rocking so much it was useless. Went handheld the whole time.
Best of the bunch, IMO, is here:
And full set is -here-
This one is a bit blurry but i still like it:
More tomorrow at Kaboom on the Navesink, held in Red Bank which is the biggest in NJ!

Experimented a bit with some 2-4 second long exposures at St. Mary's Fair in Middletown last night. Lots of fun and interesting streaks =) Painting with Light is a lot easier than drawing for me, I can't draw a straight line...
