Last Friday I had the the opportunity to photograph The New York Bojaira Project flamenco jazz performance at Terraza 7 in Queens, New York. The group’s Flamenco singer and flutist Alfonso Cid will be performing in Israel as part as of the Jerusalem Andalusian Orchestra Tour.

Following are some images from today’s #MarchforBernie held in New York City. The rally began at Union Square at 3:00 and marched down to Zucotti Park on Wall Street starting at 4:00. While I haven’t found any estimates it seems that ~5000 people participated. When marching, the crowd stretched as far as the eye could see north and south along Broadway. The crowd was full of individuals representing the fabric of American society: youth, blacks, whites, Jews, retirees, educators, Latinos and more. These images capture micro moments of the day, including signage, puppets, emotions, energy and passion.
I once had a dream. A dream about a good dark city.
On a lazy Sunday afternoon after trying a new brunch spot in LIC, I had the most unusual subway ride back to Manhattan. I didn’t know what I was in for when I heard the train pulling into the station and ran down the stairs and upon arriving on the platform, I was soon disoriented, amazed and instantly amused when I saw that the M train I had boarded was not an M train with which I was familiar, but instead was an “S” train, part of the limited run of the MTA’s vintage train from now through the end of the year each Sunday a few times per day.
I jumped in the train before it left, landing in a passenger car that began service in 1910, according to the MTA staffperson inside of the car. The train was much darker inside than the well-light E train I was expecting, lit by round incandescent bulbs, cooled by open windows & fans and furnished with cushioned seats. Moving into the next car, a specimen from 1957, I noticed brighter lights and “modern” oscillating fans that replaced the Tommy Bahama-like ceiling fans of yesteryear from the car of 1910.
I was lucky enough to have my camera with me and began to shoot immediately, focused on capturing everyone’s amazement with this blast from the past. While some riders knew about the S train, many were as surprised as I was.
