My reference to a light meter was tongue in cheek.

I know. ;)


Here's a sequence I shot a couple of weeks ago. It's just a plane coming into Teterboro, but it sure doesn't look like it.

(maybe I shouldn't have said what it was)

With the river in the background, belching smoke stack and older buildings Hackensack looks like it is from another era. Nice shot in sepia?

Sepia would give it a brown or reddish-brown cast. I just put it in iPhoto and moved the saturation slide all the way to zero to make it B&W.

SNOWDOMES

Big snows make for nice winter pictures, but little snows have an accentuating charm all their own.

I had to get these early this morning before the sun came out and melted all the snow.

Today's assortment includes sparkling low tide, leftover salt in the E lot, a red tree, an unfortunate man, a block-long steeple shadow, a sunset, and a one-exposure horizon that's perpendicular to itself.

The first one is just something I saw out my window when the sun reflected off the circular object.

Ya gotta love Geri's colors (click to enlarge).

The last one I took this afternoon from my living room as two fighter jets leave the area after flying over Yankee Stadium on Opening Day. They were probably still over the Bronx, at least 10 miles away. The foliage is in Fort Lee/Cliffside Park.

The last photo is of One World Trade Center - about 15 miles away - and is a bit oversharpened.

The first four pictures were taken right by the river, the fifth on Main, and the sixth on a very uneven-looking Anderson St, which appears to have a downhill component and too many wires and streetlights (one is on) above it........and the yellow lines don't come close to lining up before and after the tracks.

Holy Trinity Church is such a great structure to photograph from all sides. These three photos were taken in the back.

Does anyone know the function of what's shown in the first picture?

No function at all. It is what you might call "architectural license" where the architect tried to replicate some design feature he saw elsewhere and was trying to carry through the entire Church design. Basically it is an abstract of a doorway on the bottom and two window openings above.
Now look at photo #2. The doorway there is of similar scale to the doorway in photo #1 as are the windows.

An ideal place to hang some bells as in the original Spanish style churches.http://www.inkasdestination.com/en-cusco-peru/useful-info/spanish-churches-and-museums.php

Beautiful pictures showing the detail and workmanship involved in this type of construction.

In spite of the numerous sites provided in a Google search I could not find any info on when the church was built.

I was thinking about bells too, but it seemed odd to me that bells would be placed in the back of a church.

Holy Trinity Church celebrates its 150th anniversary this year, but the current building is not the original. Information provided by Editor in this thread: - http://www.hackensacknow.org/index.php?topic=530.0 - indicates that the current building was dedicated in 1932.
