Second Roll

I’ve received the scans of my second film roll about a week ago and still haven’t posted the photographs. There are a lot of good shots again. I found these the most interesting. The most processing I’ve done on these was cropping and straightening in Photoshop. Nothing else.

Looking up.Arosha was reaching for something up high and I asked Alena to look up as well. It’s not very sharp, but it just works on this photograph.

Chess.I walked up to these guys and asked permission to take a photo. No response followed. Then one voice said — the silence means agreement. I took a shot and thanked them. No reply followed — they are all in the game.

Seagull at Sheepshead Bay canal.There are a lot of seagulls all around Sheepshead Bay canal. Each pole is occupied.

Alisa.The daughter of our friends Vika and Ignat — Alisa — playing in one of the local parks.

Shublik.Our Shublik is beautiful even in black and white. With age he’s got much easier to photograph even with a manual camera. He’s not a kid anymore.

Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.Verrazano-Narrows Bridge — even to this day every time I see it I’m amazed by it’s beauty and sheer size. Whenever I have somebody come over from overseas this is the first spot I take them to.

Roll & Roaster.Roll & Roaster is one of the oldest places on Emmons Avenue. This antique car looked very fitting in front of it.

Silhouette.I was sitting on bench at the end of the canal when I saw this man going somewhere in a suite and old style hat. It’s a good place to take photographs of people going on about their business without intruding.

Yom Kippur.On the last warm day of the year people were coming out from synagogues on a day of Yom Kippur to enjoy the passing summer.

That’s all for today. A good set, but I probably won’t be doing more film anytime soon. The age of instant gratification has ruined me.
