This image of a nautilus is sandwiched between two layers of plexiglass to protect it from moisture around the pool. The print is part of a 20 print collection permanently installed at the Grand Tier across from Lincoln Center on the upper west side of New York city.
This post-war 30 story high-rise was designed by famed architect Costas Kondylis, with interior spaces designed by renowned American Designer John Saladino.

The Covid-19 Pandemic has affected the way we communicate. Millions of people are using apps like Zoom, Facetime, Google Meet, Skype, etc. Many users are sitting in front of bookshelves, doors, windows and a range of objects that draw attention away from you and distract.
Consider upping your online presence and go professional. Select an image that can be printed on a removable peel and stick wall mural.
Contact me to find a beautiful affordable background. The print can be modest in size to fit behind you when online or it can be wall paper that covers an entire wall.
When you want or need to change the image simply peel it away from the wall (leaving no marks or damage to the wall) roll it up to use another time. Then attach the new print.

Industry is built using engineering design. I’ve always appreciated the elegance of design be it in fine art drawings, fashion, or industrial design. Often the clearer the concept the cleaner the design. Long ago the Shakers and Danish designers illustrated that truth.
This image is a sonar mapping image of the floor of the Gulf of Mexico identifying were there are voids in the earth, where there is crude oil and where there is natural gas.
Once again when we turn our attention to nature we often see elegant design and beauty.
I was walking down fifth avenue and saw this image, paused turned back and asked the person if it would be ok to make an image of their shoes. They looked a little puzzled, but said, ok. After making the image I showed it to them and they said, “wow very cool, I had no idea”.
One of the great satisfactions of photography is being able to make an image of those fleeting moments that we come upon every day.
