Photography: Williamsburg 3/27/21

I received my federal and state tax returns, my stimulus within days of each other — and I picked up a few bucks for doing a friend’s headshots. So I decided that it would be a great invest to finally purchase a full frame digital SLR camera— a Canon 6D Mark II. Unsurprisingly, with the weather getting nicer, I’ve been taking my new camera out to shoot as much as possible. I get to know the camera better. I could use the exercise and the sunlight. Plus, I get out of the house a bit.

My birthday was on Sunday and because the initial weather reports suggested that the day would be a wash out — and because it was Palm Sunday, I decided to celebrate it with a couple of very dear friends, who I caught up with in Williamsburg. There are a few murals I wanted to take shots of, including an Eduardo Kobra mural on North 9th Street and Bedford Avenue, as well as anything else that would catch my eye. Check out some photos below.

Caption: Eduardo Kobra’s “The Fight for Street Art” mural featuring Basquiat and Warhol. Unfortunately, I didn’t get all of it because someone was standing to the right of the frame’s edge, taking the same photo over 32 times with their iPhone and they just wouldn’t move. So you do the best you can, right?

Caption: A friend joked that this old Ford reminded him of Sanford & Son. Perhaps that’s why I was drawn to it?
