PAPER: A Night in the Life of Hanuk.

BY THE TIME I join Hanuk for dinner at the Standard Grill, the main course has already been cleared, and the evening, along with its accompanying consumption of libations, is well underway. On this night, the Korean-born photographer and former fashion designer is at a booth with two unlikely candidates in his sphere of fashionables: attorney Eric Richman, whom Hanuk has affectionately nicknamed “EricRichman.com,” and Richman’s friend, a Vespa-riding Internet mogul. The conversation turns to agricultural development in downtown Brooklyn. “Farming concrete?” Hanuk asks with a mischievous grin. “What’s that? This is why I drink!” And with that, he turns to the passing waiter. “I’ll have another drink, please.” Read more at Paper Magazine.

Close Encounters of the Aquatic Kind III: Dolphins.

A few more Aquatic Action Adventure Shots, taken just moments ago from the Fictionarium: South Florida Campus’s balcony: a school of friendly dolphins! If you ask me, they’re far nicer than the ominous, leaping Blacktip Sharks of my last foray into Close Encounters of the Aquatic Kind.

Close Encounters of the Aquatic Kind II: Sharks.

ABOVE ARE SOME PICTURES I took yesterday from the balcony of the Fictionarium: South Florida Campus. In terms of the story behind these images, I feel as though I should just hyperlink back to my earlier post regarding manatees, save that this time, I did not get in the water.

Those brown shaded areas schooling not 30 to 50 feet off the shore are most certainly sharks; I believe that the sharks in question are, specifically, juvenile Blacktip sharks. Prevalent to South Florida, Blacktip sharks grow to an average of roughly five feet in length, and are known for Continue reading

Close Encounters of the Aquatic Kind.

WE HERE at the Fictionarium: South Florida Campus certainly do encounter quite a lot of wildlife’s finest – sharks, foxes, egrets, not to mention the most loathsome fauna of them all, the feral iguana. Unfortunately, seeing something and getting people to believe that you saw something are two different matters entirely. And so, yesterday, when I saw a telltale, slow-moving brown mass drifting near the shore, I called my father over to the window. Continue reading

Il Duomo.

Duomo - 01

While my mom’s on business in Italy, Intrepid Adventure Photographer Dr Marks has often been left to his own devices, and so, over the years, has taken a great many photographs of the Duomo in Milan. And while many would hail the grand cathedral’s spires and cupolas, there’s something to be said for Dr Marks’s masterful employment of the fish-eye lens. Continue reading

Lightning Strikes.

Lightning6.6.097

 My father took these pictures from our balcony in Palm Beach just as the clouds rolled in from off the Atlantic, reminding me that there’s something magical about the weather down here. I remember when I was younger playing a soccer match a few miles south of here, the clouds coming in low but it still being bright and hot as though there were no clouds at all. The coaches didn’t hear lightning. The game went on. Continue reading
