Better Than Real Because It's Not.

(Sep 8 ) Ran back to Cordwood Landing Park one last time for twilight photos.

The portal within the park

moar blue

blue is blue
The water crashing onto the beach always reminds me of Billy now. It frightened him as a puppy.

I like the blue shots more than these
Blurry ferns suggest it was breezy

Even though these are more realistic
I confused an earlier photo with this one. This is the one where you couldn’t see the people fishing.

(Aug 13) A newer (better) camera is for me, an opportunity to re-visit and re-photograph places I’ve been before. I think there’s value in it to see not just the (I hope) improved photographs, but the changes from time.

train: in
First stop, Port Jeff train station. Why? I don’t know.
But it seems fitting the journey would begin in Port Jefferson.

train: out
Which for the Port Jefferson Branch is…

new camera, new aspect ratio
… the end of the line

last wisps of light disappear in the west
These train bridges are one of the few high places out here I have access to

it feels old to me
Most people don’t like the light these lamps make, but I kind of like how it photographs

the platform
I wish I could get up just a little higher. Another floor or two.

exposure a
No Flash mode

exposure b
Program AE mode

It is evening in Port Jefferson

I’m not feeling this like I used to, but I go because Pete wants to, and I need to escape every now and then.

lirr ronkonkoma station
I walk down here a lot, even when I don’t have a train to catch.
Among other things, I like to reassure myself I can escape suburbia.

speed limit? what speed limit?
The next day it was off to the park.

tavern on the bankruptcy
Failure of what was recently the most profitable restaurant in the United States.

buy our cd plz
They weren’t bad, if I recall correctly.

Unlike most days, it wasn’t crowded.

(July 14) I decided to walk to Williamsburg over the bridge, at sunset.

delancey st.
I decided to start in Manhattan, so I took the subway to Delancey.

toward the williamsburg bridge
It puts you about a block from the bridge walkway.

the esb
A common sight on this site.

surrounding neighborhood
One of my favorite things about walking the bridges is the view of the neighborhoods.

across the river, toward billyburg
The view of Brooklyn in the distance.

the cage of boo!
Unfortunately, much of the view is defaced by this chicken coop.

spiral staircase
I wouldn’t mind taking photos from that staircase.

fdr drive
The Fucking Disaster Road Drive.
