Python in a New York Subway & Be gone with Ye
Geordie Gardiner

Python in a New York Subway

Miriam Danar posted me a message telling me the news that her work, "Begonias at the window, on this cold and grey snow-day " was placed among two other entries in the Photograph of the Week Competition run by New Yorkled.

I thought, ah, an opportunity to possibly get a little creative. An hour or so later I had done very little other than to see if loading the image as a screen saver might inspire me.

So you might say I started to doodle, digitally. Using the colour scheme of Miriam winning photograph I began to build an image, working with the Clone Tool to pick up this and change that and tweaking it here and tweaking it there.

The bright yellow of the vent in Miriam's photograph put me in mind of a New York Taxi and after a while thinking of transport I titled my first effort, "Python in a New York Subway."

I liked the image but I thought I would attempt to take my ideas further, to include darker thoughts that have been playing around in my mind prior to viewing the 3rd series of "the Walking Dead."

After a number of hours I produced an image that I was pleased with but I could not think of a title other than "Be gone with Ye."

Flowers the mask

That cover dead

While all about they are walking

Sometimes on green

And sometimes on red

Not knowing there's a python

That will snap off their head

Central Park Lake by Dave Beckerman

Central Park Lake - infrared Willows

2008. Central Park Lake. San Remo towers in background. In 2008 I began to shoot with digital infrared. This was done with a camera that was modified to only transmit infrared to the sensor; at a spot by the willow trees where I like to sit down and get away from the noise and rush of the city.

Trefoil Bridge Central Park

This is from a large format camera, circa 1993. Location: along park path under East Drive near the Boathouse and Central Park Lake. Built: 1862 by Vaux and Mould In architectural lingo, ”trefoil” means a design featuring 3 lobes, like a shamrock. Consequently, ‘quatrefoil’ and ‘cinquefoil’ mean designs featuring 4 and 5 lobes.

Bethesda Terrace 1990s

This shot is from 1990, 35mm film. Bethesda Terrace is on two levels, united by two grand staircases and a lesser one that passes under Terrace Drive to provide passage southward to the Elkan Naumburg bandshell and The Mall, of which this is the architectural culmination, the theatrical set-piece at the center of the park. The upper terrace flanks the 72nd Street Cross Drive and the lower terrace provides a podium for viewing the Lake. The mustard-olive colored carved stone is New Brunswick sandstone, with a harder stone for cappings, with granite steps and landings, and herringbone paving of Roman brick laid on edge.
