Spotted while surfing Google Earth along the North Shore of Long Island, New York just west of Sunken Meadow State Park. True love in the sand for all to see.

Happy SUNday! – The joys of being a kid

Remembering a very happy time in my life – Springtime in New York, baseball, my home and yard, being seven and a half, and your dad taking your picture with his trusty camera.

Carol and Sakura

My lovely wife Carol enjoying the sakura blossoms in front of my mom’s house in New York – 1974.

Shot with my Yashica TL Electro-X and printed on Kodak matte finish paper. This many years ago the colors have faded…

… but our love hasn’t.

Still married 43 years later to my sweetheart and best friend. ^.^

Confrontation along Rt. 110

My first real confrontation with someone who didn’t want his picture taken.

He was selling vegetables (illegally I think) along Route 110 on Long Island (a very busy road) when he spots some punk pointing a camera at him. That was back in the Summer of 1972. I discovered these images recently in a box of long forgotten slides taken with my Yashica TL Electro-X. So after 45 years Mr. Roadside Vendor, your picture gets posted.

I was out enjoying the summer day when I spotted this colorful roadside vendor and I thought that it might make for some good pictures. I jump out of my car and set up my Yashica for the telephoto shots when I realize that the man is walking across a four lane divided highway straight towards me – and he wasn’t a happy camper. After some “conversation” between us, I agreed not to send his picture to Newsday  (Long Island newspaper) if he would just go away and leave me be.

The original images actually stink – a bit underexposed and out of focus, but after playing around with them a bit I kind of like the “Monet Effect” I got with these.

I like the soft colors – the blur adds a bit of vintage charm too. And yes, he had his hand in the right pocket of his trousers the whole time he was confronting me. I suspect he had an imaginary gun of some sorts. It was a fun experience for me and I’m sure he enjoyed the experience too.

I’m sure he was a nice old gent for the most part – maybe the Summer sun and my Yashica got him a little hot.
