A Night in the Life, Part 6

The Halloween Parade starts in front of my apartment building on Spring Street, and every Halloween it's a total zoo. I can't tell you how many transvestites and slutty vampires were milling around waiting to march up 6th Avenue. I was glad to skate down into the darkness around the Battery- and then up through East River Park. Contrary to my expectations and everything I was ever told growing up, there were no egg throwing hooligans or serial killers lighting people on fire in the park. In fact, it was totally empty except for some Con Ed workers fixing a vent.

Jake, these are the most amazing pictures yet in your night in the life cycle, and I've been following/looking forward to them all week. What are those otherworldy looking things sticking up in the lower half of pic #3? The Brooklyn Bridge pier shot and especially the shot from underneath the Manhattan Br are fantastic. Great work!!

those are the wooden piles that used to support one of the west side piers. you can see some similar piling in the foreground on some of the east river shots.

tonight is the last night of the cycle. i've reached a point of total exhaustion- but tonight i'm going to press on. over the williamsburg bridge to brooklyn, and then up along the water to greenpoint and LIC.

What kinda of camera do you use for these photos? I realize they're probably digital, only because you get them online so quickly, but specifically which camera body & lenses are you using?

Great work!

i shoot with just my old canon G2- no lenses or attachments. once in awhile i bring out the circular polarizer for shooting water during the day, but that's about it.

Wow...those are spectacular images for the G2. Just goes to show that you don't need a very expenive dSLR for quality photos.
