A few photos from a recent trip to Belmont Park.

When I was
little young I dissected a baseball to see how it was made. Since it’s been a long time, and I don’t remember it, I decided it was time to do it again.
Just like last time, I dragged myself out of bed early and all the way downtown to see the ships at Battery Park. The weather was cloudy and grey with the threat of rain all day, but even so, I managed to get a little sun burn.
Due to the weather, most of the tall ships did not have their full sails out, but they’re still impressive nonetheless.
Any fine, hand-made cigar has two ends, the “cap” at the top which you cut and put in your mouth, and the “foot” at the bottom where you light it. I always take a look at the foot when buying or smoking a cigar, but the other day was the first time that I really sat down and inspected one with a magnifying glass. It was only then that I truly saw the mélange of colors and textures and patterns that are in a fine cigar. It was also then that I knew I wanted to photograph a variety of cigar feet to capture the beauty in them.
My old apartment had an old style peephole which allowed me an undistorted view through my door. Combine that with the fact that I had an end apartment which had a view of the entire hallway of my floor, and the voyeur in me couldn’t help but take a peek at my neighbors whenever I heard them in the hallway.
After noticing that my Coolpix 990 fit perfectly over the peephole and could take pictures silently, I decided to try to take a photo whenever I heard something going on in the hallway.
The following twelve photos were taken between late 2001 and early 2003.
