pics | afternoon light

Subway Lights
i'm taking an accounting class on mondays and one benefit is being out during sunset. the other is the work-out i get from carrying the text books because they weigh almost 10 pounds!

China
taking on a 365-project of any sort is likely to push you outside your comfort zone. for me, photographing in low light vs. the bright white i'm usually drawn to has been the biggest challenge.

Ahae Exhibit
korean photographer ahae has taken an ongoing photography project to the next level by capturing over one million photos over a two-year period from the same window. some of them were on display in the 'through my window' exhibit at grand central station recently and the way the photos were illuminated almost made them come to life.

Whiskey
catskill comfort in jack's stir brew coffee in amagansett looks beautiful in the afternoon light. probably tastes good, too.

Skyline
the weather has been beautiful lately, unseasonably warm with the prettiest colored skies.

ps i meant to post photos from the new york city marathon, but fell behind this week. there are a few over on flickr if you want to see them. it's one of those events you don't really want to go to without knowing someone in the race, but once you get there it's so much fun.
