Trees and Chairs

West 57th Street, New York

In this waltz through the archive of September pictures we’ve now arrived at 2009, a mere 14 years ago. In the course of this archival stroll we’ve advanced from a 5MP digicam to a 6MP DSLR (Konica Minolta 7D) and now to the 12MP Nikon D300. At the time, each one felt an important step, now I find it hard to pay attention to each new year’s technical refinements.

Ariel East

100th St and Broadway, New York

Another image from September 2007. The Ariel East and Ariel West were 2 brand new skyscraper apartment buildings that went up across Broadway from one another causing some controversy at the time, with posters decrying the “monsters in our midst.”
