    These night shots are beautiful. How did you make them?

    35mm SLR (Pentax K1000) loaded with Kodak 400 ASA color, aperture open at 2.8, shutter held open manually as long as I felt like it, while my brother drove me around Manhattan in his Chrysler New Yorker and I pointed the camera out the window at the what-all. Some of these images (including those I’m posting to this site) were printed up and showed at a couple SoHo galleries in 92 (in the bygone days of so many SoHo galleries).

    I’ve seen similar attempts in photography workshops, etc, but the results are usually a dog’s dinner. These have a lovely sculptural quality. Do you still sell the prints somewhere?

    there were dog’s dinners. i left them on the cutting-room floor. as for sales, i never sold any of the prints (not for want of trying). the new york shows almost bankrupted me.
