2001 – 2 Photos
On May 2, 2017 - Uncategorized
I guess I didn’t shoot much in 2001. Of course, I DID shoot THE infamous event of 2001 from home, but that’s on my site under “September 11, 2001″.
Unless you’re from the Hackensack, NJ area, you probably won’t know Packard’s, which was a big, beloved store. In its last couple of years, they added this fish store, which added to the image’s color.
I took this picture just before they tore the 117 year-old building down and replaced it with – what else? – a Target store.
Staying locally, this shot was taken at the Holy Trinity Church carnival in Hackensack.
From my site:
The old Holy Trinity School that I attended from grades 1-4 used to be in this parking lot. I packed my equipment for the long journey there and hiked the 2 blocks.
There were 4 equidistant sets of lights on this carousel. I set the tripod up and mentally calculated how long 1/4 turn took (the time it would take for the lights to streak around and ‘connect’).
The horses went so fast, they were a blur and threw all the kids off to serious injury, but I got my shot with nice sharp backgrounds and everything else in motion.
Oh………..just kidding about the kids.
