@cicerone imposter,
I was behind the camera. Just memories, schniff. That's also where I learned to ride a bicycle, and to sled. Short but good year. Except I was horrid at basketball.


Not to disrupt Shewolf. Just sayin, some of us are following extra hard.

@ossobuco,
I didn't start taking pictures until I was in the US Air Force and got transferred to Morocco. From there, I was able to visit Madrid, Paris and London, so I'm glad I got into taking pictures. Ever since then, I must've taken over 10,000 pictures. On some trips over 1,000, but these digital cameras make it possible.

@cicerone imposter,
Oh, wait, the first one by me with my brownie. The second by my father with his argus. He actually did know what he was doing.

Shewolf, I love seeing my hometown through your eyes. And I'm getting to see things and places I don't get to anymore. I have mixed feelings about the subway. Do I miss it? Dunno. But it's the best way to get around.

Eagerly waiting for more pics.

@shewolfnm,
Sorry I messed up re credit for the second photo (doh). Given I enable my scanner, I'll have some goodies to post on some future thread.

Meantime, I'm interested in even the discards of shewolf's photos.

Shewolf, do you know Winogrand? or, his near opposite, Soth? or Salgado?

The above two photos are the bottom of an ..incan (?) boat suspended from the ceiling on floor 2 of the museum.
A couple other floors had too many stuffed taxidermist displays for my liking so that helped in narrowing down what to see in such a short time.


This room, was enchanting.. and scary.

@chai2,
I have to go back. Just to take some more photos of that room.

In that room you can SMELL those wooden carvings.
They smell dirty, musty, old and like.. old blood.
These things are easily 5times as big as me . Suspended in the air, positioned to be looking at you as you walk in the door.
It leaves you feeling like you are being watched. Which you are.

We were alone in that room for a few moments.... but that room is full. No such thing as really alone in there.

Spectacular.

I lost my sense of time in there and could have seen something else before I left but I could not help myself.

You have to go to the Brooklyn Museum as well, which is, in my opinion, perhaps even more spectacular.

Im going to look that one up and see what it has on display.

I really am plotting a second trip.
Im debating on making these photos into some kind of book.
Though publishing is beyond me in terms of how to and where.. but I will learn.

Very nice pictures! They want me to go back to NYC as well!

Apropos publishing, etsy.com has several contacts where you could
publish something. Here is one idea

Shewolf, That museum is one of my favorite places in the city. Filled with great stuff and great memories.

Spent many afternoons there when I was a kid.
When I was in college, I took an anthropology class, and I had many assignments there.
When I was a working stiff, I took courses there--partly because I was interested and partly because I loved walking through those rooms with the totems alone at night. You're right. You're not alone in those rooms.
It was the last place my father and I went to together.

Brilliant pics. Thanks.
