I Love Coney Island during the summer! When was a kid and even as an adult, I’d jump on the train and head out there. Especially at night beacuse of the neon lights!! If you have a day off and are looking for something to do, then pack a lunch and jump on the D or the F Train to Coney. You won’t regret it!!

PARIS IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA!
– AUDREY HEPBURN
My photography mentor and colleague is living in Paris this Spring
to add work to her portfolio. It has always been her dream to live in
Paris and she’s turned that dream into a reality!
I am so inspired that I wanted to do a post for all of us that have a love
for Paris and for people realizing their dreams! It’s nice to know that
“Dreams do come true” isn’t just a catch phrase for some new tech product!

How about a Subway Series for New York City!! I know, I know! It’s a little early to be predicting. But it’s opening week for baseball and there’s nothing wrong with wishing! Why not? The Giants just won the Super Bowl, the Knicks just beat the team with the best record in the NBA in overtime and the Rangers are in the playoffs. So Why Not?
I understand! The Yankees are down 3-0 and the Mets swept the Braves 3-0. So what are the odds? Vegas has the Yankees 7-1 to win the World Series and the Mets are 40-1 odds. Not looking good! Time will tell.
In the meantime, take a look at these subway cars from decades past that transported baseball fans to and from Ebbets Field, the Polo Grounds and Yankee Stadium. Courtesy of freedomstudiosnyc.com
Everybody knows that Brooklyn is where it’s at right now! Williamsburg, DUMBO, Red Hook, Smith Street. But not too many people have ventured down to lower Atlantic Avenue to the famous sailor haunt Montero’s.
My Dad a career Navy man said that Montero’s has been a well-known watering hole for “Swabbies” for decades since the era of “On the Waterfront” – Starring Marlon Brando. A true drinking bar, this is not the place to find drinks with funny names shaken into pastel colors. But hard drinks for people who wanna get drunk fast!!
I was fortunate enough to be there on a Saturday Night where my sources informed me that Amethyst will be showing up with a Kareoke machine sometime around 10PM.
I met three “Singer-Ringers” that convinced me to do a couple of standard numbers. Which I was totally into. Being the closet performer that I am! 🙂
I also had the “Honor” of taking a special request from Miss Carol who is one of the regulars. When she said it was a Whitney Houston song I almost declined. But when she told me it was her 1st husband’s favorite song. Then how can you turn that down!
I wasn’t sure if I could pull it off. But when I turned away from the tele-prompter to sing her a few lines. I noticed that she was getting very emotional. I had struck a cord!
With tears in her eyes, she thanked me and I realized that we both had gotten something out of this performance!
I can’t guarantee that you’ll have the same experience. But if you find yourself on Atlantic on a late Saturday night, then stop into Montero’s and don’t forget to buy Carol a drink!!
PBR $4 – Jamesons $6 – Closing down Montero’s to Carol singing “Fever” , PRICELESS!!

Since Valentine’s day is only 29 days away. I thought it would be appropriate to post things that people love through my photography. SO, most of the posts will be LOVE related. 🙂
The first one is for guitar lovers. I just finished reading “Room Full of Mirrors” about Jimi Hendrix and his music. I’ve been listening to a lot of Jimi Hendrix lately. Great blues!! It made me go to a guitar store and hear guitar players jamming together. And to take these shots, of course!
They’re perfect as gifts for the classic rock n roll or guitar lover! Click Here to see more images.

Only one week into the year and the momentum just keeps on coming!
My photo “Brain Waves” that I took in Guerneville, CA was featured on the front page of etsy.com today. It must have something to do with that AMAZING full moon out there tonight!!
