I've been on the bike a lot this year, training for the 500+ mile Ride the Rockies (coming up in 19 days!) During our 150K Brute Ride in Wisconsin this past Saturday, three riders were taken to the hospital, one in this helicopter. (I hope the're all O.K. I haven't been able to learn anything about their status). We rode up more than 9200 vertical feet during the ride hitting grades as steep as 23%! (Yup, very nearly had to walk up that one, and I was barely riding faster than those who were walking!) We learned to keep the brakes on during the descents. Even then, we occasionally hit 45MPH on some of them!

Last week's shoot for Talenti was a blast to say the least. We had a great crew on set, and worked with a lot of fun food and concepts. Here are some behind the scenes images.

I've signed up for Ride the Rockies this June. Looking forward to it with equal parts excitement and terror.

It's a rare luxury to have Twister available. Fortune favored us today, and with temperatures hovering around -10 we took advantage of the indoor parking.

Just got my hands on some of the work we shot with Martin Williams for Syngenta. These farmers were awesome to work with. This was my second time working with them.

Above: Gansevoort Plaza. The beginning of the High Line.
The High Line is a public park built on an historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. It is owned by the City of New York, and maintained and operated by Friends of the High Line. The first section of the High Line from Gansevoort Street to West 20th Street opened on June 9, 2009. The second section, which runs between West 20th and West 30th Streets, opened June 8, 2011. It reopened last week under restricted hours due to damage from Sandy.
The High Line winds it way through several buildings, such as the Standard Hotel here at Washington and West 13th.
The High Line overlooks he newly opened (September 2012) Meatpacking Market on 9th Ave. and W 13th.
The High Line is an evolving art space featuring works from numerous artists along it's 1 1/2 mile length. The image on the building at left left is French photographer JR’s tribute to the Lakota people.
Another ongoing art installation here is the High Line Channel. Two weeks ago it featured a piece by one of Columbia's best known artists, Oscar Munoz. His work explores history and memory. His video, projected on a building to the east of the High Line at West 22nd Street, showed a portrait created on stone with water. It would evaporate before it was completed. The High Line Channel is still out this week, also damaged by Sandy.
Brazilian muralist Eduardo Kobra's take on famous WWII photo of V-J Day in Times Square by Alfred Eisenstaedt.
The Northern end of the park features the 30th Street Cutout, a glass platform revealing portions of the structure and the street below.
Tenth Avenue Square. From this unique vantage point on the High Line at West 17th Street, you can see traffic along 10th Avenue. I can't imagine a trip to NYC without taking time to walk this amazing green space again.

Nearly 1 in 20 New Yorkers have experienced homelessness. Even without Sandy there are around 40,000 homeless in NYC on any given night. The majority of those can find shelter, but thousands like this man in Chelsea, end up on the streets.

Wet snow mixed with wind gusts from the nor'easter blasted flood-prone neighborhoods on Staten Island already devastated by Sandy.

Most schools in NYC are opening today after being shuttered all last week in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. I shot this last weekend at Belvedere castle in Central Park. Follow the link below to donate to the relief effort for the victims of Hurricane Sandy.

Central Park sustained a lot of damage from Hurricane Sandy with the loss of an estimated 1000 trees. City workers were trying to clean it up in time for last weekends New York City Marathon which was wisely cancelled by last Friday. No trip to NYC is complete without stopping by Central Park. I spent an afternoon there last week. Here are a few shots that show what it was like before the storm.
Bethesda Fountain, located in New York City's Central Park, is one of the most well known fountains in the world.
Trefoil Arch, completed in 1862, runs under East Drive.
A shot of one of the lovely paths winding through Shakespeare Garden, adjacent to the Delacorte Theatre. The Theatre showcases the world famous Shakespeare in the Park each summer. It's free (if you have all day to wait in line).
A boy plays with an RC sailboat at Conservatory Water.
An essential pilgrimage for Beatles fans since John Lennon's death in 1980, Strawberry Fields, is located just a few yards away from John Lennon and Yoko Ono's home, the Dakota Apartments, where Lennon was shot.
One of the "bubblemen" of Central Park. Based on the amount of tips he took in in 15 minutes, he makes about $50 and hour. Not bad.
There are a lot of street musicians in Central Park. This guy (randomly wearing roller skates) was one of the better ones. Follow the link below to donate to the relief effort for the victims of Hurricane Sandy.

Partial subway service has been restored in NYC. But if you're here at 34th Street - Penn station (seen here as it looked when I shot it last week) it's the end of line. Service south of here is still suspended.
Same for Grand Central Terminal. All service South of here is out as well.

I took this shot of NASA's first shuttle, the test orbiter Enterprise, newly housed aboard the retired aircraft carrier Intrepid in NYC. On Monday, high winds from Hurricane Sandy caused the collapse of the temporary shelter for the shuttle. (below).

Always fun to work with Duffy & Partners. (Especially when you get to sample the wares after the shoot.)
