Flatbush Snowstorm

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/4974/flatbush_storm.jpg

1/30th at F3.6, ISO 3200 (35mm).

I'm the biggest offender in romanticizing New York winters.  The reality is that it's four months of this crap.  It's gorgeous when you look up, but there's not much looking up on a daily basis.

Inspiration Street Photography Cork Board

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/4295/corkboard.jpg

Street photography is such a unique form of art because the images play off each other so well.  They can be powerful alone, but sometimes the collection can be more important than the individual images themselves.  It's like a recipe, where the different ingredients enhance one another and it's why the book and street photography have such a powerful connection.

The problem is that it's extremely difficult to group the images, to figure out the themes, and to foster them over time.  I struggle with it and I have a lot of fun with it, so I thought it would be a good idea to put up a large 36x48 inch cork board on my office wall where I can mix and match and play around with images over time. 

It came out MUCH better than I expected and it will evolve over time.  I wish you could see it in real life on the exhibition fiber paper.  I'm going to put up two small cork boards next to this and put painting lights above them all to illuminate.

Colored Water Towers

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/3929/colored_water_towers.jpg

Sara found these amazing lacquer frames a few weeks ago and we thought they would be perfect to fill up our blank kitchen wall.

What to go in them? Colored water tower photos of course!

Double Rainbow over Central Park

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/3915/double_rainbow_over_central_park.jpg

And a single one across the sky.  Sometimes you're just in the right place at the right time.  The planetarium and Natural History Museum are on the right.

The Natural History Museum.  I actually prefer this shot the most.  As a child I remember going into the huge halls and seeing the dinosaurs and whales.  I get nostalgic whenever I pass by it and this was the first time that I've ever seen it from above.

Manhattanhenge

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/3893/manhattanhenge.jpg

Given that it's a supremely cloudy day today, I don't think there will be any good Manhattanhenge photos taken.  Manhattanhenge is when the sunset aligns with the east-west Manhattan grid.  It occurs twice a year during the summer months.

Took me about 4 years to finally get this photo right along with the correct weather, so I'm going to post it for every Manhattanhenge until I get a better one, which I'm not sure I ever will.  Especially with the airplane.

You walk the streets constantly searching for that perfect moment and here it is right in your bedroom.

This one has to be seen large.
