POSTER PICKS

As a longstanding graphics lover, I've always had an appreciation for the visual vibrancy of poster art in NYC.  Place, and replace, the constant struggle for visibility goes on, and, even though I have little recall of specific products, I am always taken with the images. Here's a quick dozen favorites from this past year.

DRAMA ON THE SET

As we all know, NYC is a sea of churning dramas, and. as an occasional witness, I thought I would start the new year with an homage to "drama on the set".

                       Red Tailed Hawk and Squirrel Drama

On a recent walk along the Hudson River Park downtown, I came across a vignette out of Animal Planet, with a stare down between a Red Tailed Hawk and a squirrel.  Some feathers were ruffled, but the squirrel managed to dive under the bench in time.

VERTICAL FILES

Camera composition options have always been pretty basic, but for no particular reason, I've always maintained a separate vertical file.
