When My Ship Comes In

Bryant Park, New York City.
July 2007. 
Medium format; cross-processed.

In May, I published consecutive blog posts featuring one polaroid and two medium format photographs, respectively. For my most recent blog post this month, I uploaded two previously unreleased polaroids... so I thought I'd upload one more lomographic shot now.
I've been to New York City a few times and there are some places that have a certain appeal to me (such as Brooklyn Bridge and Grand Central) but any time I'm there, I'd much rather spend my time down the shore in Asbury Park.

Winter wind and evening showers
The turning hands
The passing hours
Time's slow river rolling onward
Carries us away

A lonely victim of circumstance
In a world of our own making
A world of chance
One more step in the cosmic dance

When my ship comes in
Riding on the water
I'll be outward bound
I'll begin again on a tide of change
I'll be comin' around

Click here to see Anna Wolf's amazing photographs. I also love these pictures on Flickr. The following link will lead you to a gorgeous range of women's clothing. It took me two months to discover the sneak peak of "Towers Of The Ennedi" on Jimmy Chin's website

Although it's late at night, I have to get back to writing an essay which is due on Monday. I hope to be able to take some new pictures before I'm off to London.

Have a nice weekend.

I follow a few photo blogs and am always amazed at the difference in styles. All are splendid and interesting. Your photos have a very unique light, i think you have found your own style, and it is brilliant.
Kind regards, DeeBee
