All the photos on this website were taken by me in the city of New Brunswick, NJ, USA. Hopefully, you will find them interesting.

I actually caught this big guy on my way out to work in the morning. He posed for a bit and then fluttered on his merry way. It made me happy because I have never been able to take a proper picture of a butterfly. Anyway, he marks a nice return to the sunny weather after a week of cold rain.

the dynamic duo

A mother and child crossing street. I like this shot because you can tell this woman's hair color is probably her natural one because it matches that of her child's. I also really like the color contrast of the bright orange and dark blue. What a duo.

It's been a rainy week in NB and I've really loved every minute of it. (I've often joked that I have reverse seasonal affective disorder) I know it's dreary, but it makes me feel cozy just getting in my car. I also feel this shared thing with everyone, we are all a little wet and a little trapped indoors, and we become just a bit closer because of it.
Anyway, I passed this impressive grave stone during a walk today and can't decide if it looks better in color or black and white. Any opinions on which one is better?
I had no idea who scudder was and why the name ends in a period, (but it does add an air of importance). I did some research on scudder and found this link that explains everything.

in decline

This was a funny poster to see on the newspaper machines. I did some googling and apparently this is the symbol of a dvd that shows crazy stuff, (that was a terrible description). Here's how describes it :
"INDECLINE The new BFK production, as politically incorrect as always, hard skate, daredevil graffiti, over the top violent, advertising hijacking, anti-Bush manifestation which degenerates, fight clubs and more generally, misery in its sad and tough reality, the American society is collapsing, here is the testimony… A must-see ! "
I doubt I would enjoy 'over the top violence', but it was an interesting addition the the new brunswick scene and I liked the logo with subtle demonic details.

This wall really caught my eye because of the color and the exposed brick. I couldn't tell if this was done on purpose or just an old wall in need of a paint job. Either way, the sun was setting while I was walking home and I liked it.

crazy bug on a window screen. i got a weirdly close look at this fella the other day. I'm not sure what he wanted, but he went on his merry way and that was that.

black holes

OK, even though you can't tell at all, this was from last week's MUSE concert at Madison Square Garden in NYC . I know, I know this is not a photo of New Brunswick, but I just think it came out really cool. The band was amazing, (as always), but they really amped it up for the big arena and had spectacular lights and effects. I just happened to catch this photo during an especially powerful boom. OK, I promise it'll be back to NB tomorrow, (I just had to make an exception for my favorite trio).

iron man

This is the iron gate of a very old cemetery on Neilson St. In fact, it was so old that I saw a grave of someone born in 1802! I didn't have any particular reason behind taking this photo. I guess I just liked that it was old. Sometimes in the midst of all the redevelopment in the city, you forget that the old stuff wasn't all bad.

sweet escape

while others chose to suffer in the heat (see man in back), one of my best friends and i had some ice cream after work. this place, 'cold stone creamery' is famous because you can customize your ice cream. here jessica enjoys a birthday cake in a cone. so cute.
this is part of the new rockoff dorms on george st. when i went to school here, there was no such cold stone creamery, (or any decent ice cream place for that matter), and i'm miffed about that. i mean, these new kids don't know how sweet they have it.

busy bus

Here's kind of a dreary shot of the bus that goes to and fro new brunswick. this bus is a busy one, yet the station on route 27 always seems like its abandoned or something. I like this picture though, because it kinda looks like it was taken 30 years ago.

table for one

I decided to take my lunch break outside the other day. I've passed by this open area so many times and have wanted to eat my lunch there, but just never did. It's a nice, shaded spot on Albany St. with lots of open tables and even a performer once in a while. Well, whatever holding me back wasn't the other day so I got a nice spot and enjoyed lunch for one. This shot was from my lunch's viewpoint.

it takes two

So I was walking down the street the other day when I noticed this man riding two bicycles at the same time. Sorry for the crazy angle, but I literally whirled around as they rode past me and I just had to get a shot.
My guess is that little boy in the white is his son and they just bought a new bike and this was how they had to go home. I can ride a bike one-handed, but I've never been able to master the hand-less ride. Kudos to this guy.

back in new brunswick!

I've been away for awhile; a looong while. I had a temporary position in Washington DC and then did some traveling abroad. But now I'm back in New Brunswick, working and getting ready for grad school in the Fall. (there is a God!)

While in the midst of redevelopment, New Brunswick is going through a number of changes, (which I look forward to documenting). This is a happy shot of the downtown area on George Street. You may notice the Jamaican flag on the right. I was pleased to see that George St. is now lined with international flags to represent the different backgrounds of local businesses and communities.
