New Years Photography Resolutions

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/2155/chinatown_snowstorm.jpg

Chinatown, Blizzard 2010. 

Happy New Year everyone!  I hope you all have a wonderful night and a very rewarding 2011. 

I just wanted to say to everyone that's been commenting, emailing and lurking along for the last 14 months that I'm so happy you are out there.  I have received some incredibly heartwarming emails and comments over the last year and it really makes me feel good and keeps me motivated to improve my work.

I created this daily blog as a way to force myself to photograph more and to document my journey and improvement as a street photographer.  I hope that you've enjoyed following along with me and that I've inspired a few people to get into street photography themselves.

Now I thought that it would be a good idea to publicly state my 2011 resolutions for the blog and my photography in general.  I read an interesting article this year about how the major reason why weight watchers works so well is because they make people weigh themselves in front of a room of people each week.  People tend to stick to resolutions that they publicly state to others, and hopefully by doing this you will help me stick to mine.  If you have a particular 2011 resolution that might be tough to follow I would suggest telling as many people as possible.  Your motivation will then be to not let everyone down :)

So without further ado, my 2011 resolutions:

  1. Post more than once a day.  Maybe we'll start with 3 posts every 2 days for now and we'll go from there.
  2. Shoot more architecture.
  3. Photograph at night more.
  4. Write a long article once a month.  We'll start slow and pick up the pace as I get more used to it.
  5. Write more short articles.
  6. Scan and post more of the vintage photographs
  7. Visit more galleries.
  8. Create a blurb book.

Hopefully I'll be able to stick to 5 of these 8 and if there is anything that you would like to see from me in 2011 then please let me know!

Happy New Year!  What are your 2011 resolutions?

Terrorists, 5th Avenue

I love this guy's mask and the sinister look on the woman's face, but I think the hidden star of this photograph is the man-purse.

Astor Place Cube and Box

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/2141/astor_place_cube_and_box-2.jpg

This was definitely the shot of the day today from the storm, taken at about 8am this morning.  I was photographing people in the area when I noticed the box being blown down the street towards the cube.  It hit one of the bike stands and held the perfect cube position for about 5 seconds while I got off 2 shots, and then settled on the ground.

I'll post more photos from the storm over the next few days, but too tired at this moment to go through them.

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend.
