Just a single shot today, depicting a series of CSX locomotive engines which were observed hauling a freight train over the Hell Gate bridge recently. Busy today with developing the shots from Halloween in Astoria, which I hope to be able to show you tomorrow at this – your Newtown Pentacle.

Upcoming Tours and events

Exploring Long Island City, from Luxury Waterfront to Abandoned Factories Walking Tour,
with NY Adventure Club – Sunday, November 12th, 2:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Long Island City is a tale of two cities; one filled with glittering water-front skyscrapers and manicured parks, and the other, a highly active ground transportation & distribution zone vital to the New York economy — which will prevail? With Newtown Creek Alliance Historian Mitch Waxman details here.

  1. “developing the shots”? You working in a darkroom with enlarging paper, and trays of D76, stop bath, and fixer? I’m writing to you with my Beseler motorized enlarger right next to the computer screen with a plastic garbage bag over it to keep the dust off. Haven’t used it since 2004. Schneider-Kreuznach lens projected all my negatives.

    • raw shots off the camera and moved through an editing process for display. This is referred to as developing.

      • Never heard that before. What you are doing is ‘editing’ the imagery. “Developing” is what I did in the “wet” darkroom.
