The Newtown Pentacle

Altissima quaeque flumina minimo sono labi

Odds, Ends… a few weekend photos

leave a comment »

I have climbed over, crawled under, floated through and scuttled across a lot of New York City during the last few months. A keen awareness that everything is about to change has driven me to focus on what was, where it happened, who did what and when, and offered conjecture as to why. My search for understanding has taken me far afield, sometimes, I take photos of the people I see as I’m ambling about.

I don’t know any of these folks, they just caught my eye when I was wandering around. I try not to take pictures of people I don’t know, as I think its kind of rude, and because my camera has a really shallow zoom. However, I do it sometimes and seldom show them, as my best shots are always of the metroscape.

I’m somewhat shy about this sort of street photography business. All of them are shot in “public”, by the way. If you or someone you know is in the shot, and don’t want it displayed for any reason, contact me.

There’s no editorial meaning ascribed to them, and a few are taken as far away from the Newtown Pentacle as you can get. They’re just shots I like, and periodically I’m going to just post a few here. Check em out.
