B&W in Greenpoint

Another photo from my afternoon in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. What a fabulous neighborhood. It's possible that I'm just a closet painter. I've thought about painting a few times in my life but I was never able to decide what to paint! It wasn't until I started doing more abstract photography that I started to realize that I have inspiration for painting. And speaking of inspiration, one of my favorite artists is Gerhard Richter who paints paintings that almost look like photographs. For the moment I have a few series of photos that look like paintings. Perhaps I will cross over to the other side one day! For the moment intentional camera movement is one of my favorite techniques in photography. You can see more of my motion blur photography on my other site. B&W in Greenpoint, 22 April 2017.
