Street Photography: Spot Cats!?

Regular readers of Greenpointers have seen Spot Dogs NYC a few weeks back, but let it be known I’m an equal opportunity photographer. This particular post features the cats we see on the streets of Greenpoint.I don't always photograph cats...

The White Kitty

Thank everyone who came to the opening reception for my photography show at Brouwerij Lane, which will be up until April 22. All of the photos in the show were shot in Greenpoint, on black and white film with compact cameras in the later half of 2010.

Street Photography: Give Me a Sign

The majority of these photographs are from the last roll of HP5 I shot over the past two weeks.  Here I present a collection of signs that caught my eye.

Spot Dogs NYC – Greenpoint Edition

Spotdogsnyc.com is a “pet project” I’ve kept for the past 4 years or so.

Here is the premise:

  1. Spot a dog on the street
  2. Take a photo

I think I started it before I was comfortable approaching people for photos of themselves. Anyways, here are a few from the hood:

This is my sister's dog, Gizmo
Elvis in McCarren Park
Pug on Manhattan Ave
Two HUGE dogs on Huron

I’ll probably be making a spot dogs post here once every few weeks, but if you want to see more, follow the tumblr blog here: http://www.spotdogsnyc.com.

Also, if you’re interested in having your portrait taken with your dog (or without), contact me at will@spotdogsnyc.com

Thanks!
-Will
