SOME HANDS - Black Party Exhibit - NYC 25 March 2006


11 April Nats opener vs Nets was my first time ever

When searching for images for my 2007 New Year greeting cards and 2006 In Retrospect / Year in Review Project I would upload several of my 11 April 2006 Washington Nationals (Opener) vs New York Mets Never Before Seen images. See 2003/04 holiday cards.

While I, of course, have attended and photographed a few amateur games not only was the 11 April 2006 Nats vs Nets game the first time that I'd ever photographed a magor league ballgame it, also, was the first time that I had ever attended a major league ballgame.

And as is the case with most such scenarios, my interest and fascination had more to do with photographing the game. Click photo to view 11 April 2006 Nats (Opener) vs Nets Never Before Seen 2007 images which are also included in the 11 April 2006 Nats (Opener) vs Nets photoset.

Route 235 in Southern MD: A road, NOT, so less traveled.

For several years, now, I've had more than a passing interest in traffic and highway photography. See my recent South Capitol Street Rush Hour project.

When visiting my family in Southern Maryland on Christmas Eve 2006 and as is the case with most places that I visit I would engage in traffic and highway photography. Once back in DC, wanting to post an entry pertaining to the traffic gridlock that I always encounter when visiting Southern Maryland I'd search the internet for Traffic Route 235 Southern Maryland and would come across a 12 September 1997 article, by Maryland Senator Roy P. Dyson, entitled "Roads Less Traveled" in Southern Maryland".

Unfortunately, the traffic in Southern Maryland is not unlike the traffic in Washington DC. Or, most places throughout the nation.

My St. Peter's Episcopal Church / Chelsea NYC photo at Wikimedia

This photo of St. Peter's Episcopal Church, under reconstruction, was taken over Memorial Day Weekend 1992 from the living room window of Lothar Wullert's 5th floor apartment/loft.

Located in the 300 block of West 20th Street in Chelsea, NYC, and situated directly across the street from St. Peter's Episcopal Church it is at Lothar's apartment that will often stay when visiting NYC.

Starbucks in Chinatown

It was on New Years Day 2006, that I began my now ongoing Starbucks Chinatown project. Not unlike my Starbucks Dupont Circle North project, when passing through the Chinatown area it has become my practice to, consentually but candidly, capture folks sitting at tables in the windows of Starbucks, located at the corner of 7th and H Street, in Chinatown.

It is in the spirit of the New Year, 2007, that I wish to shed light on Cowgirl Creamery's Online Store.
