Attention Readers in the Greater NYC Area

If you are free on July 30 or 31 in the greater NYC area, please make plans to attend the Pop-Up Gallery Event at SoHo Photo Gallery. Regular reader Robert Johnson will have up to three works on display. (I already bought one of them, a wintry surprise for MTM. He squealed.)

Please come out and support Robert. Because, someday, somehow, that karma will come back to you.

What: SoHo Photo Gallery Pop-Up with The B&H Event Space, 15 White Street, NYC (click here for map)

When: Wednesday, July 30 and Thursday, July 31 from 1pm to 6pm, with a party Thursday, July 31 from 6pm – 8pm

The Greater NYC Area is a crazy-busy place.

If you live there.

If you happen to be there.

Stop by and support a very talented photographer (and his cohorts.)

  5. Support. Good stuff.

  6. If I lived anywhere near there, I’d BE there!! I love photography and I loved NYC the one time I was fortunate enough to see it.

    Supporting, sharing, giving back; such simple, easy choices that make life so much brighter. Good luck with the exhibit, Robert.

    I love his photographs! If I lived anywhere even remotely close, I’d go. Good luck to Robert! He’s an awesome photographer. I didn’t know his photographs were for sale. Does he have a website? I get his blog…so perhaps I should pay more attention to the surroundings, but I normally just focus on the photographs. 🙂

  9. What is the backstory on this image?

    July 29, 2014
    • I’ll let Robert answer his own backstory, but for me, it’s one of my favorite images Robert’s taken. When MTM and I got married, I bought him a photograph as a surprise, a picture Sandy Logan took of a red door and ladder that’s on one of the Ports Authority buildings on Concord Street downtown. Robert’s picture is an incredible complement to that one, and I thought it would be a great addition to our tenth anniversary year. Also, MTM misses winter, and I thought he could look at this photograph and have a dose any time he wanted.

    • This photograph was taken on January 26, 2011. You may recall 2010-11 was a really hard, wet winter. Snow was predicted that day but it was not supposed to be nearly as severe as the major December blizzard (20″ of snow) and then the near blizzard on January 10 (10″ of snow). I decided to go to Inwood Hills and take this path I had seen that lead down to The George Washington Bridge. It started snowing and within about 30 minutes it was clear that the forecast was incorrect. We ended up with 19″ of snow that day. This is the Inwood Canoe Club landing. Founded in 1902 they say it is the oldest club of its kind in NYC. Everything was grey and white and then as I passed the building the fog lifter just a bit and this red building just popped out at me.

  10. Annnnnnnd of course, tomorrow AND Wednesday are big media event days here for me (well, this entire week is), but I’ll see what I can do if I can kick myself out of one of those events early.

    Hmm… was that MTM squeal a tire squeal or “She’s standing on me back in heels!” squeal? No, don’t tell me – I already have too much stuff floating in my head today. A squeal source note may be a camel back-breaker… 😀

    • Who can resist a good party?? I know. I know. There are eleventy-billion things to do in NYC. If you go, please let me know. I’d love to hear about it vicariously through someone.

    Wish I could be there. I used to live on Prince St back in my …ahem … younger days and it’s my favorite part of town. Good luck Robert!
