took this in Miami’s Wynwood Arts District during the Art Base weekend down where its warm.
these guys play roller hockey nearly all year round … always right in front of the treasury building next to the white house.
now usually i respect people’s request for not having their photo taken. usually i find out about that after i have taken the photo and then i will either delete the shot or after showing it to the person and if they like it i will email the photo to them. but this guy who was protesting in front of the White House (the sign he has under his arm says “in god we trust”) started yelling and swinging his flag at me telling me that i have no right to take a photo of him. i reminded him that he was in a public place and he didn’t have any of that.
it is interesting that he demands his right for free speech about some unproven entity called god but does not allow others their rights. well here is the photo…

just coming back from a couple of days in chicago i remembered that i still had a shot from a couple of weeks ago. so here it is. no people. just greens, glass, steel, and concrete
new york street corner at night. another shot from last weekend. also processed with Nik Analog Efex
i took this photo last sunday in new york. i was walking around nolita when i saw a ton of emergency lights in the distance. so i walked over there and found 20+ firetrucks blocking the street. i could walk around and there were few areas blocked. i took a bunch of photos. this one probably being my favorite one. later i found out what was happening. a student was trapped between two buildings, trapped there for 36 hours.
the photo was processed using nik’s analog efex pro.
