Hi Hank. It's a fantastic composition. I'll keep it in my favorites. YS.
Great Fernando. Thank you for this singular honor. I appreciate it.
Very good angle and very coloured photo, Hank. Greetings, Isabel
Thanks for the invitation Isabel, nad thanks too for your compliment. Great stuff on your pages.
Hi again, Hank. In 2003 I visited NY, and the architecture from SoHo district will remain always in my heart. SoHo is the Cast iron historic district, especially the area between the West Houston and Canal streets. The heart of this district is Greene street. The Corinthian columns from the facade are definitely from iron cast. I'm looking for a photo representing the facade of the building from Greene and Prince street corner: the painted wall which imitate the iron cast facade. The little grey cat is so...cute. Best regards, Bogdan.
Greetings Bogdan, I know the area well. In fact, my favorite jeweler is only one block away on West Broadway, just north of Prince. I hate to think how much money I've left at that corner; but her work is so magnificent.
If I get down to the corner of Greene and Prince, which corner building are you looking for? I'll see what I can do.
I don't know the number of this building, but, certain it's a building one on which walls, Richard Haas (a muralist painter), painted a brick wall to imitate a cast iron facade. At an open window (painted, of course) is a gray cat (painted, also). This building it's right on this corner, coming from subway (Prince st.), on the left (Singer building is on the right, and my building is next corner on the left). The facade is on the Green street. Thank you very much. And also, we cannot forget the building from Greene street no. 28-30 "The Queen", the "Enchanted Forest" store and so many, many others wonders of your wonderful "world" - NY.
I will always love NY!! Cheers, Bogdan
Okay. This should be enough to go on. I'll let you know.
Special for you bogdanm101, I've posted a photo of the Richard Haas faux-building, mural-painting which makes the building on the corner of Greene and Prince Streets look all the windows face the street. This is the one for which you've asked.
BTW, I stopped by the jeweler's to say hello, and the store was gone. They closed up, after more than 20 years, on January 5th. They're retired to Sarasota, Florida, and I saved some money.
Hello Hank ! Great composition and very nice colors for this beautiful shot, well done.
Thanks Yves, it's like a closeup portrait of a person with a lot of character in their face. I appreciate your visit and comment.
Brilliant shot Hank. So many lines - great composition. Interesting how such a shot, and the following discussion, has one suddenly finding himself reading the wikipedia article on fire escapes ;)
Seriously though, great shot, and the colors - wow.
Kind regards, Justin
As an afterthough, you might like this detail shot I shot in Toulouse. Also has some funny history as well (scroll down a bit in the comments).
Greetings Justin. I find myself using Wikipedia quite a lot, often to relate an interesting story about my picture or some feature in it.
I'm glad you like this. It's one of my favorites from this series. Best regards from New Jersey,
It amazes me how colorful and rich the colors are in the buildings in NY. Most towns usually seem drab and gray with little to it, but NY definitely stands out remarkably...
Thank you Rafael. I don't normally have my camera with me when I travel to New York City, especially when I'm on business. The City is such a total immersion place that everything kind of blends together into a single experience, so when I have my camera I find I zoom in to isolate features from the blur. This series was a successful portrait of a single street corner, and the truth is, I could have done more, or even waited as the sun moved to change the lighting.
I always appreciate your comments; I thank you again,
Greetings from TURKEY, Mustafa ERKEK
Greetings Mustafa, thanks for the compliment. Best wishes from New York via New Jersey, USA.
Il y a plusieurs lectures possibles de cette image, suivant la couleur que l'on retient...
orange/diagonale, vert/verticale, gris/en zig-zag suivant les escaliers.
De cette dernière image, je m'attends à voir surgir Bruce Willis pour un dernier "Die Hard".
Je vous remercie Phil. Je vois pourquoi vous vous attendez Bruce Willis à devenir un élément de la scène. J'ai été séduit par la couleur et la ligne dramatique de l'édifice trop quand je l'ai vu. Merci aussi pour le YS.
