Back in March, when I was still doing this blog as a photo-a-day blog, I posted this photo:
Since at that time I was only posting images with no text, I didn’t mention what the subject of the photo actually is: the lights atop a Yellow Cab. As a taxi sat idling at a stoplight, I set a long exposure on my camera and panned slowly over the light on its roof. This method is more obvious in the following photo, which I also posted here last March. In this one, you can see part of the medallion:
I really love how these photos turned out! You see so many postcards and other images of iconic New York City objects and places. I like that I’ve captured one such object but in a subtle and unique way. So, I decided to share the rest of the photos from that series. I hope you enjoy them! And comments are always welcome.
A huge (and belated) thank you to my dear friend Ian Hemingway from Retrograde Amnesia Fine Art for creating these beautiful labels for the note card sets I sold at the Astoria Market last weekend! He’s an amazing artist. You should definitely check him out! (Click on both of the blue links above. You can also Like him on Facebook to keep up with his latest projects.)
Twenty-nine hand-painted note cards–dry, ironed, and ready to sell.
Here’s what they looked like a couple of days ago:
As my friend said when I just showed her the cards, “Ah–so this is why you had cold cereal for dinner the other night!” Indeed. This project has totally taken over my kitchen for the past several days. But, I hereby declare it worth it!
I’ll have these cards, as well as photos and painting prints, for sale at the first-ever Outdoor Art Market at the Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden in Astoria, Queens on April 21st. The market runs from 1-6pm, rain or shine. (Please shine–please!) You should stop by.
