I love black and white photos. From the time I was a kid I spent hours looking at old photos and books of photos, family photos, art photos, historical photos, street photos.
Vivian Maier, Robert Frank, Diane Arbis, Dorothea Lange, Margaret Bourke-White, Walker Evans. And on and on.
For me, one of the great things about the internet is that I access the great photographs without having to drive over to the library and start hauling books off the shelf. They're all right here on my computer.
Just today I was looking at some great photos. By Bruce Davidson. The link below is for a collection of more than 800 of his photos. Take a look. Here's the link to the online site where you can find them. http://www.magnumphotos.com/C.aspx?VP3=SearchResult&ALID=2K7O3RTJ3HAC
Four trees down on our block alone. One tree split in two. Trees on houses. One car totally smashed. Multiply that scenario across the city, across the tri-state area. Subways flooded. Bridges closed. Tunnels flooded. Breezy Point on fire. Lower Manhattan and Red Hook (Brooklyn) flooded. Unprecedented power outages - millions affected. A tanker ran ashore (onto a road) in Staten Island. Have never seen anything like this before.
