Streets and people of places as diverse as Manhattan, Chicago, Omaha, and Des Moines interest me. I particularly enjoy the challenge of late Victorian architecture, with its towers and turrets and gingerbread. .
Here's a small selection of New York cityscapes.

subject. This is a picture of the subway station in Union Square, just before the sun broke through in the morning--the false dawn. If you don't know New York the thing looks like a flying saucer, or maybe a food stand. Certainly doesn't look like a subway entrance, but below Union Square (as in much of the city) there is an enormous subway station that connects several parts of the city.

The Chrysler Building in winter twilight. Even though the spire has become an Art Deco icon and though it's been painted literally tens of thousands of times, this particular view struck me as a strong representative image of New York, especially after the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center at the turn of the century--unconquered and continuing as the intellectual and business center of the world. For that reason I called it "Invictus," or unconquered, in Latin.
