About This Image

I have to say that shooting photos from the top of a bus at night was an incredibly interesting game. While the views were amazing, the photo opportunities basically boiled down to when the bus is stopped at a traffic light. One has to be on the lookout for a moment like the one pictured here. It’s gone in a heartbeat as the bus heads for the open road again.

What most caught my attention when taking this photo is the comparably well lit building in the foreground and the comparative darkness beyond that. There was something about this juxtaposition that really spoke to me.

And I fear I have to admit that the geeky side of me really expected to see the silhouette of a certain Gotham-based caped crusader along the far roof line. Even without the fancy, I really love the warm glow from the windows on the bricks of the nearest building. And the hint of reflecting light on the windows on the silhouetted building just really gives depth to this night scene print from the streets of the real-world Gotham.

I ultimately decided to take this photo the next logical step and textured it to really go with that graphic feeling I got in the original image. I stopped short of adding a caped figure on the roof-line, but if you have the same geeky bent that I do, you probably see him as I do. Yet this print definitely surpasses the geek culture that may have inspired it. Most of the people who have I spoken to about this artwork simply love the air of Manhattan at night they see here. Which camp calls you home? Are you a geek that sees the graphic quality of this? Or a lover of Manhattan and the big city lights?

How Can I Help?

At the end of the day, it’s important to me that you can put a face with the art you’re considering purchasing through my site. Aside from the print vendor who ultimately prints and ships your order, this is a one man show. The person who made the art is the same one who is typing this message and the one who will answer your questions if you drop me a note.

You are not a number and I care that you are happy with whatever art you might buy here. I’m here if you’d like to ask questions before or after purchasing. And I’m also happy to work with you where possible to customize the work you’re buying. Maybe you’d like a tweak to the shape of a print to fit in with your existing wall art. Or you’d like to add a little nod to someone special in it? Just ask! I also keep a running list of subjects I don’t currently have but people are seeking. So if you enjoy the style of my work but didn’t find quite what you were looking for, please do let me know.

I’ve been an artist for 15 years now and most of that time it’s been my full-time passion. And it matters to both the endorphins in my brain and the food I put on the table for me (and my cats) that you find the experience of purchasing the products offered here to be a pleasure.
