Street photography in New York City

I was recently in Long Island to visit a friend. Of course, I took the train to Manhattan for a day of shooting. Here are some street photos of people in New York.

How hops grow?

I was recently in the US state of New York for a travel story: Central New York: that one time where I tried 50 different craft beers and 20 spirits in 5 days

I wanted to learn a little bit more about hops and I was directed to a small hop yard where I discussed the matter with farmer Larry Fisher. The photos did not fit in my story, so here they are.

The odd used car dealer

In Maine, Somewhere between Ogunquit and Portland, I stumbled into this very odd but very photogenic used car dealership. On a road trip, never take the highway.
