I seem to always be on this never-ending quest to find the perfect iPhone case. What are you using?

My iPhone is naked.  Never found a case worthy of the phone.

I spent a few hours in Chinatown over the weekend and this is what came out of it - http://folio.jorgeq.com/post/15079357110/a-short-time-in-chinatown-flushing
A Short Time in Chinatown, Flushing It didn’t fully sink in until my wife oversaw me editing some photographs from my visit to Chinatown but she pointed out that a lot of the images I brought back...

Yeah, the whole concept of switching will just give me another excuse to write more for the site. I'll keep you and everyone else posted on how things go.

I couldn’t be the hit and run type of traveler even if I wanted to. The type of traveling most celebrities are put through when they’re promoting a release. The type of travel where the only detail they have to validate they’ve been to a country is the faded stamp on their passport or the endless photographs published thereafter on tabloids highlighting who they were seen with.

The mere thought of traveling to unfamiliar territory instills this curiosity towards certain aspects of a place that most people would deem inconsequential based on their own level of interest. Do I need to know what the local beer is? Do I need to know what specific things characterizes a place or how people live or what they generally think about or what they care about and maybe even uncover things that are typically kept secret by locals? Perhaps you could respond “no” to all those random questions but for me, walking away knowing the answers to at least a few of them makes me feel like I may know a place more than someone who may just care to brag about where they’ve been based on the numbers of refrigerator magnets they’ve collected.

It’s easy to get a superficial handle of a place but it’s something totally different when you’ve chosen to become part of a community and have been granted access and given a better understanding of wherever you’ve chosen to visit. I can’t say I’ve had the privilege of exploring all those questions I’ve mentioned with regard to the cities we’ve been to but just thinking about it sure as heck embarks you on this mental journey of realizing what it make take to truly say that you know a place. I may not know that much about Venice but as long as there remains a level of curiosity towards the place is all that matters.

Even on my days off or while on vacation, I could never seem to shake off the persistent habit of waking up early. Not 9am or 10am early but more like 6am early. I’ve always felt that the earlier you jumpstart your day, the better your overall attitude will be.

Those early mornings all I can think of is what Ferris Bueller once said, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

Beautiful shot. I'm an early riser like yourself and one of the advantages of that for me is shot likes this. Go the early risers!

116th Festival Portraits in East Harlem. Rather than attending the actual Puerto Rican Day Parade in NY, I chose to explore the pre-celebrations the day before - http://folio.jorgeq.com/post/24878777838/116th-festival-portraits-in-east-harlem
With the exception of Puerto Rico, no where else is pride for this island more palpable than the way it is in distinct neighborhoods of New York. If you’re unaware as to who in such a large state...

2011 is quickly coming to an end. Is there something photography related that you didn't accomplish this year that you home to tackle for 2012? For me it's more personal projects.

At some point, I eventually saw myself upgrading to a full-frame camera and based on the research I've been doing so far, I'm leaning towards the Canon 5DMII. Why not the Nikon D700 you ask? Well because the D700 is a freaking bulky beast in comparison to the much lighter feel of the 5DMII.

Sometimes the biggest challenge in photography is not so much the fact that we may not have the gear we think we need but it's more the lack of time we wish we had more of. I wrote a little about this - http://folio.jorgeq.com/post/13371271429/the-value-of-time-for-the-holidays

It’s like a magical cube that’s difficult to turn your back on and not have the urge to photograph it, especially in the evening when you’re most likely to see that strong warm reflection bouncing off the struction as the sun is settling. Inside this stunning glass pavillion you’ll find Jane’s Carousel, protected from any type of inclement weather so that it could be enjoyed year around. From what I’ve read, 2 of the pavillion’s sides open up accordian-style, allowing for an open air experience during the summer.
