Great photos, vv,

Sharp, rich, Ever heard of Andreas Feininger. To me the best cityscaper ever. He made many, many significant photographies, far above the awe pics of today (Knirk, knirk; that rockingchair needs some lubricant)

The pictures are optimized for slideshows. The slideshow button is at the upper right. Please use your loudspeakers. There is some music, progressive music from the seventies in the different galleries.

Do a search. You'll be inspired. He also knew everything about the trade. The only photo education I have is reading two brick stone volumes by Feininger on the basics of photography, in German language.

That was before the age of colour photo (Knirk, knirk; that rockingchair needs some lubricant - now where is that d..... tool box - ah)

Now it's time for my siesta. Where is that mexican hat? Well, one of those days

I didn't know that either. But when I was looking at the map I did see FDR Drive become Harlem River Drive. Thanks for the info.

Thanks, Torgny. I just googled Andreas Feininger and, wow, his b&w photos are very impressive. The big surprise for me was they were taken in the 40s and 50s -- definitely pre-HDR age . I'm already picking up some new (to me) ideas. Thanks for introducing Andreas Feininger!
