I have to thank my buddy Chris for taking my camera to take this picture for me this morning – the clouds and fog at Coney were incredible today — at Coney Island
A short and creepy montage of scenes shot around the ever-photogenic island of Manhattan — filmed entirely in high-dynamic range and comprised of some HDR Timelapse footage I shot, along with a collection of slow-motion and normal 24fps footage processed from Red Epic-X RAW video that I recently captured and then exported as -2,0+2 TIFF stacks to be tone mapped in Photomatix using a batch processing workflow.
Again, I only live here…totally convinced that this place is merely fictional.
“In the majority of cases, conscience is an elastic and very flexible article, which will bear a deal of stretching and adapt itself to a great variety of circumstances. Some people by prudent management and leaving it off piece by piece like a flannel waistcoat in warm weather, even contrive, in time, to dispense with it altogether; but there be others who can assume the garment and throw it off at pleasure; and this, being the greatest and most convenient improvement, is the one most in vogue.”~Charles Dickens, The Old Curiosity Shop

We’re born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we’re not alone~Orson Welles

Had the same thing happen to me once…when my bathtub overflowed.

It's about time it snowed! In past years, ATZ has posted Bruce Handy's first snow of the season photos in December and once in October during the weather event known as Snowtober. "I was on the beach near the water earlier about 5, when I felt the wind shift, all the seagulls took off, the snow front had arrived," says the Coney Island resident and photographer, who took this series of photos on Friday night.
