204/365 July 23 on Flickr.Ever get that feeling while you are alone eating popcorn and watching a movie that something is just not quite right.  I got that feeling today.
This image was taken by pausing the tv on a white screen, putting the camera on a tripod, and taking photos over and over again with my arms in different places.  I then used Photoshop to merge all the images and erase my body while leaving my arms.
203/365 July 22 on Flickr.So today’s photo took an insanely long time to edit, and it is now 3:00am and I really want to go to sleep.  The final image is three separate images merged together, one image of the tram, one image of me standing by the water and a final image of the bridge and skyline.  Today’s photo was taken from Roosevelt Island under the Queensboro Bridge.  Roosevelt Island is a small island located in the middle of the East River and there are only three ways of entering the island.  There is a subway stop (one of the deepest subway stops in the city), there is a bridge (but not the Queensboro Bridge, as this goes directly from Manhattan to Queens and leapfrogs over Roosevelt Island) and there is the tram.  The tram is pretty great as it gives you amazing views of the city and to ride it all you need is $2.25 on your subway card.  In this image you can see the tram heading into Manhattan.
Thank you to all those who bought images during my trial run of selling photos!  I learned a lot from this experience and will hopefully be selling photos again in the near future.
202/365 July 21 – The Time Traveler on Flickr.Today I went to Prospect Park to meet some friends.  I couldn’t find them so I decided to set up my camera and tripod and, using a little pocket flashlight, I started drawing by setting the camera to a long exposure (similar to day 132 and day 197).  I took the flashlight and used it to circle around my body all the while having the light point at the camera.  After I had shot several of these images I packed up my stuff and sent one last text trying to find my friends.  I got a text back saying they were nearby.  After I found my friends I looked at the photos I had shot and realized I could see them in the background.

201/365 July 20 on Flickr.Today I was in Central Park and I came across this band shell up by 72nd st. This area was initially pretty empty so I set up my camera to get some shots. As I was setting up a bunch of children and parents showed up and started running around inside the band shell. I knew waiting for them to leave could take a long time and daylight was fading so I decided to take my photos and Photoshop them out later. I started running up the walls of the band shell and kicking off of them. The kids started following me. It was interesting to be chased by children I didn’t know while trying to jump off of walls to get a photograph. In the end though I was able to Photoshop out the children and I was able to get some interesting shots of me jumping off of walls.

200/365 July 19 on Flickr.Made it to day 200! Only 165 days left of this project, aka, around another 5 months to go. Today I went to the Brooklyn museum to get my daily photo. It was late enough in the evening that I could stand on the usually busy Eastern Parkway and get my photo while only being mildly concerned about being hit by a car. Around 10 years ago the entire front of the Brooklyn museum was redone to have steel and glass replace the original marble entrance. I believe the public reaction initially was mixed but I think most people like it now.

199/365 July 18 on Flickr.I took this photo over and over trying to get it right. First the lighting was wrong. Then the position I was sitting in made it look like you could see parts of me that would get me banned from certain social media sites. Finally I realized it was important that my hands were visible for this photo. All in all, by the time this shoot was done I was an hour and a half late for meeting a group of people in Manhattan.  (Also, as a side note, you never realize how much of a farmers tan you have until you have done a shoot where you are siting in a bathtub without clothes on.)

198/365 July 17 on Flickr.Today I didn’t have time to go outside and take a photo so I decided I was just going to do a close up of my face. When I was a kid I broke my nose and it never healed correctly.  Usually it’s not too noticeable but for this photo you can really tell that my nose is crooked. I took this shot a couple of times until I got one that had very sharp focus.

197/365 July 16 on Flickr.Today I was hanging out with my friend Jane from my most recent birthright trip. Jane and I were in Union Square when we noticed a man selling little slingshot light up helicopters. You use a rubber band to launch a small light with propellers into the air. Once it starts coming down the little propellers catch the air and starts spinning bringing the little light down gently. I realized this would be a cool daily photo. We saw a family that had just bought three for their kids. Jane ran over and asked if we could have the kids launch the helicopters while we took a photo. I used a long exposure to capture the trail of lights while Jane and I stood very still.  Thus, this is how this photo came to be.

196/365 July 15 on Flickr.Today I had a demoing job (see day 75) in New Jersey. People in New York seem to always be making fun of New Jersey, but the truth is, there is open space to breath here. Across the highway from where I was demoing I could see on google maps that there were marshes and islands next to a river. I went to explore and I found a well maintained trail leading through the swamp with the silhouettes of Manhattan skyscrapers in the distance. It was actually quite beautiful, peaceful and quiet. I only saw one other person while I was there (something that never happens in nyc) and it reminded me a bit of the small nature preserve Emily Oaks in my hometown of Skokie. I would have stayed and explored more but storm clouds were rolling in and I didn’t want my equipment to get wet. I do hope to be back in New Jersey soon though.

195/365 July 14 on Flickr.Today I was running low on time so I thought I would try a shadow photo. I took the photo in a corner of the room with the hope that the light would bounce off of the corner and illuminate my face. It worked to an extent.
