New York City has many firework display on July 4th. If you can’t find a good view of the big corporately sponsored ones just head uptown for some of the best unlicensed pyrotechnics you’ll ever see.

Just another day wandering the streets.
Underneath 155th st. I came across a broken down delivery truck I’ve noticed around town before, due to the smooth spray paint work. Upon further inspection I learn that I have come across a very fresh arson scene. I caught a whiff of the burned out interior and made sure not to catch another. It wasn’t the worst smell I’ve come across in New York, a roaring charcoal grill with some tires thrown in would come close to replicating it. This had to be the work of a flamer, an arsonist for the non-Arrested Development fan. The whole cabin was perfectly scorched and the surrounding cars had no damage. The final clue is the inscription written on the hood in black sharpie marker from the likely culprit; “Fuck You, guy!” They even took the time to write an exclamation point!
I have locked my attempt at making a true New York City montage. I spent the bitter cold winter wandering the streets of Manhattan carrying my camera and tripod from one end of the island to the other.
This will more than likely end up as the opening credits to a film noir I’ve been collecting footage for since August 2012.
Crank up your 4K TV and turn it up loud, you’ll enjoy it better.
I had to trek over to the West Side Highway to get a clear view, as always it turned out to be worth the walk. The Moon was already too high in the sky to get a decent shot framed by the skyline so I went for full detail.

I’ve uploaded the photos from my recent excursion out to Colorado for an old friend’s wedding. The second we landed we headed for Red Rocks. The landscape was amazing, I went at the terrain like a hopped up Leone; scouting out locations for future westerns.
