This one you really have to see big- so click on the photo. Big dump trucks were crisscrossing this mountain of salt or gravel (in the north of Red Hook) against the backdrop of downtown Manhattan. I'd seen this of salt before, but thought it was a minor pile until the day the trucks were there and looked tiny on top of it. The only way to get the shot was to pull down the plastic covering this chain link fence and shoot through it... and I only had my little old Olympus camera loaded with long expired Kodak film. The result is a mostly obscured photo with an extra graininess and a strange hue, but I kind of love it.

  1. Cool photo with all the layers... kind of mysterious. But this isn't really "here in RED HOOK" is it? Up past Degraw on that stretch of Columbia St before Atlantic I think. Google calls it the "Columbia Street Waterfront District" and I'd have to agree with them. Not to be a stickler or anything (-;
