Big Sur – The famous mountains of Big Sur were one of the most amazing sights I have ever seen. Coming from the east coast of the United States you just do not get a view like that. I felt alone and part of everything at the same time.
Brooklyn Bridge – My abstract take on the Brooklyn Bridge, an image synonymous with NYC, a place that will forever have my heart.
Grand Canyon – When visiting the Grand Canyon you let photography go. The fact is..there is not a bad shot anywhere, so there is no such thing as “the perfect shot.” It’s impossible, and if you are trying to go around finding it you have missed the point of the whole experience.
Lafayette Cemetery, New Orleans – Death is such a big part of this city’s history. From Yellow Fever in the early 1800′s to Hurricane Katrina in 2005, however, I have never been to a city that celebrates life more than NOLA.
Spanish Harlem, NYC - A sunset taken on the roof of my apartment in “El Barrio” (The Neighborhood).
”Pulse” Seaside Heights, NJ – A sunrise taken shortly after the earthquake in Haiti. The force of the earthquake reached all the way to the Atlantic coastline causing large waves to crash on the shore, creating sand bars. On this early morning each wave would crash and as the water began to reach the shore it would hit the sand bar, shooting a wall of water straight into the air like in this image.
Harlem – 125th street. The home of the famous Apollo Theatre. A man and his music. Sometimes not much else is needed.
