The Smallest Spy

Smallest Spy

The Smallest Spy or the dog who worked for the CIA.
Somewhere in my travels out west,
I stopped for gas and this dog starred at me.
Never barked. Didn’t move. Just watched me.

Solitude

Solitude, Beach, Shore, Sand

Solitude. Alone at the beach. Where is everyone?
There was NO photoshop/retouching with this image.
The man was sitting by himself mere feet from the ocean.
It was early in the day, so that might account for his solitude.

Children

Children are Children, African American, Black American, Children

A group portrait of children taken back in the 1970’s in my hometown Paterson, NJ (home of the great Lou Costello).
I love the girl in the center with her eyes averted to (our) left, starring at her taller friend.
And I wonder where these children, now all adults, are today.

Young Man Portrait

Young Man Portrait

Young Man Portrait. In 2000, the last year of the 20th Century, I decided to take a photo a day of my son (11 years old at the time). I thought that it would be a fun project with him but there might be some difficulties. Technically this meant shooting one image per day, using one roll of film per month and hoping that I didn’t make any mistakes along the way.  I also decided to shoot B&W film because I could handle the processing myself. The project started out simply – he’d stand against the same white wall everyday, with the date written on a piece of paper, and he’d make a silly face. Eventually I moved away from the wall and photographed him in different locations. As the year progressed I processed the film and put it into print file negative pages. At the end, I brought my “12 months” to a photo lab to make me 16×20 enlarged contact prints. They looked beautiful.
The following year – 2001 – was the start of the 21st Century and this time I photographed my daughter. The process and final product was the same but I shot color film instead. Then in 2005 I returned to the project shooting both my son and daughter together. This time I shot digital, which made it easier. The only difficult part was making sure that I didn’t forget to take a photo, but my kids would always remind me, “Dad, you didn’t take the photo of the day yet!” Digital also made it easier because I could shoot several images and pick the best one. The final product was different though, it was a book instead of a contact print..In 2000, the last year of the 20th Century, I decided to take a photo a day of my son (11 years old at the time).
