I'm not sure where they were going in such a hurry, but I'll bet that everyone was happy to receive the cupcakes!

Pretzel Stand - New York City (2020)

Twisted Logic

It was a beautiful autumn day under clear blue skies. The light was so pure that I didn't have to make any edits to the image file. I didn't alter the color, contrast, or white balance. I just added a bit of sharpening and cropped the image to a square, eliminating a couple of people who were walking on the right side of the frame.

An acquaintance remarked that the photo reminded him of the cover photo on Steely Dan's Pretzel Logic album.

I looked up the Pretzel Logic album on, where else, wikipedia. It turns out that the album photo was taken just a few blocks north of where I captured this shot on Fifth Avenue. Central Park served as the scenic backdrop for both photos.

Decades later, the legacy of New York pretzels lives on!

Early Voting In New York City 2020

Record Turnout


We just had a big election here in the United States. Despite the raging Covid-19 pandemic, more people turned out to vote than in any previous election. Many voted by mail while many others voted in person in the weeks leading up to Election Day in an attempt to avoid crowding.

Here are some photos of people waiting to vote in New York City about a week before Election Day. As you can see, turnout was extraordinary.
