BC: Another View of Mt. Ranier
FC: The World in Black and White by Dave Alpert
1: This scene was shot on the lower east side. I found that the fire-escapes, garbage cans, and the sign in the store window ("Fresh Jersey Eggs") as well as the little old lady took me back in time to when immigrants populated that area of Manhattan. | The Faces of New York
2: I came across this man playing chess in Washington Square Park. He has such an interesting face, I couldn't resist photographing him.
3: This is a scene found too often in our cities. This man was sleeping on some steps in Central Park. Fortunately,, it was summer.
4: Sunday morning in Brooklyn Heights. It seems to be a time when the men go out to catch up on the news of the week.
5: These 3 men were sitting outside a store on the lower east side. I don't know what they were waiting for but they spent quite a while sitting and ignoring one-another
6: This young girl lived on the upper west side, where I lived. It was the 1960's and there was much to do about civil rights. The slogan that permeated was "black is beautiful" and certainly for this child there was beauty. She is now in her 50's and I wonder what she looks like today.
7: This photo was taken on the lower east side in front of a tenement. To take this photo, which was taken with black and white film, I attached a yellow filter to the lens and smeared the outer edges with vasoline creating a blurring effect.
8: I shot this photo in front of a tenement on Fulton Street. Using photoshop, I inserted the face on the right. I then converted the image to sepia toning.
9: Most people take their beach chairs to the beach. But here in New York, we sit on our beach chairs in front of our building and stare at the concrete.
10: Scenes From New York
11: Columbus Circle The pigeon making himself at home.
12: I thought this picture signified an important part of New York. It shows both the Brooklyn Bridge and the World Trade Center.
13: I noticed this hand atop a building on 42nd Street and 8th Avenue. It makes an interesting image. It was originally a black and white photo taken with film. I digitalized it and converted it to sepia toning.
14: This photo is captured from the promenade in Brooklyn Heights. You can see the Manhattan skyline which includes the World Trade Center
15: South Street Seaport in lower Manhattan. This was taken with a wide angle lens. in order to include the skyscrapers into the image.
16: Miscellaneous Images | This was originally a color photo. I converted the trees and sky to sepia toning and, using photoshop, inserted the boy's legs into the image. I left the boy in b/w.
17: This is a view of Mt. Ranier. The original photo is in color but, thinking of Ansel Adams, I converted the image to b/w.
18: I decided to do some experimenting and inserted the faces into an abstract of Corning Glassware.
19: This photo was taken in Italy and is originally a b/w print. I decided to paint some of the clothing as well as the window frames to add interest.
20: An Irish family on the Aran Islands of Ireland traveling by horse and buggy. This was the only means of transportation because there was no petrol on the island.
21: Another scene from Ireland..
22: Post No Bills, a warning from the masked man, Kimosabe.
23: These pigeons are really getting the shaft.
24: This is my Ghost Ship. I converted the image to b/w and then, using photoshop, filtering, I converted the image to a negative. I like the effect.
25: This was originally a color photo. Using photoshop layering, I inserted the cow into the picture. I then converted it to b/w and then added sepia toning.
