Winter Storm Juno New York City photos from tonight (& info below)....

(There's info about my NYC photo book below too! => Direct link to book: bit.ly/photobooknyc )

I have been photographing New York City during snowstorms at night for the past 5 years. When it comes to experiencing New York City in the snow, I relish the challenge. The more gusty, snowy, and brutal the storm, the more of a chance that I will be out in it traipsing around New York City with my cameras in tow.

When I heard that the MTA was suspending all transit service (and most vehicles) at 11 pm, I made the decision to take the train up to the Upper East Side prior to 11 pm to deposit myself up there with the intention of walking from the Upper East Side to Times Square and then walking the several miles back to the Lower East Side (whew!!).

The streets were eerily empty. Emptier than they are usually at night during snowfall.

Since there was a ban on all vehicles aside from snow plows and emergency services, there were practically no cars at all on the streets. Even taxis were banned from the streets!

I walked in the middle of avenues and streets that are usually teeming with cars.

There was an eerie sense of calm. 

It was magical.

This is part of a post that I posted to my NYC photography blog. If you are curious enough to look at the photos there (it's prettier!!), here is the link to the post:

An amusing Sunday morning read.
In the wake of the death of Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah Friday, discussions and stories about the Saudi leader’s life and policies have dominated the news media. One such story is a humorous anecdote about the king’s apparently har...

"PADA pilpres lalu, seorang kawan mengatakan: ‘Pilih Prabowo mati, pilih Jokowi kecewa. Tapi daripada mati, saya pilih kecewa. Soalnya saya sudah biasa dikecewakan.’

Maka, setelah nasib buruk yang menimpanya bertubi-tubi, ia pun mencoblos nomor dua. Kini ia betulan kecewa. Bedanya, ia kecewa tanpa harus kaget dan marah-marah.

Kecewa dan marah karena Jokowi tiba-tiba ‘kok gini doang’ itu mesti. Tapi jadi ngambek dan menyesal sudah pilih dia di pilpres lalu—atau mengatakan ‘kok nggak golput atau tolak pemilu aja’—itu namanya kanak-kanak yang nggak terima kalah main gundu. Pemilu lalu bukan soal pamer sikap politik, tapi upaya mencegah seorang kriminal duduk di istana."

Selengkapnya, baca di Oase minggu ini ya, kawans.

Antara Mimpi dan Kenyataan, 5 Film yang Tak Diduga Jenaka, oleh Sari Safitri Mohan.
 ·  Translate
Lima film ini punya kesamaan yaitu menghadirkan mimpi atau keinginan dengan kenyataan yang akhirnya dipilih dan dihadapi para tokoh/karakter. Bagian kecil yang ikut melezatkan tiap film adalah selalu ada hal yang jenaka dan pas di tengah sesuatu yang khusyuk.

Blizzard bonanza this afternoon thru my lens. They call the storm, "Juno." The storm's name is always cute and so not dangerous which is... misleading.

NYC will be totally covered with white blanket on Tuesday, said the weather guy. It's a good chance to rest and stay at home, safe and warm, or to brave the storm and play with the snow.

In the meantime, stay safe, New Yorkers!
