JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 11.12.22
This was a wide-ranging week that took me from North Jersey, where I saw Lower Manhattan from the Jersey side, to small coal towns in northeast Pennsylvania.
My daughter had an exception week. Remember I did that post about her being part of the high school marching band? Well, they won Nationals last weekend, which was held at Metlife Stadium – where the NY Jets and Giants play. Shooting from the stands with just my Fuji XT3 and a cheap zoom, I didn’t get many good photos of her on the field. But she was super happy when I saw her later one.
Then later in the week, she was inducted into the Math Honor Society. And got her first pair of Doc Marten boots!
So a big week for her. And a proud dad week for me.
We’re starting that rush to the end of another year. Seeing more Xmas commercials than I’d like at this point, but it is what it is.
If you want to make any changes in your life – like I’m trying to do – start now! By the time the January 1 rush hits, you’ll already have a good head start.
This Week’s Links:
What I Read This Week: I finished In A Lonely Place last night. Really, really good. Still plodding along with Dark City. Picked up two new ones at the library yesterday: Directed By James Burrows (if you don’t know the name, you’ve probably watched/loved some sitcoms he’s done) and Portrait of Myself by Margaret Burke White.
What I Watched This Week: My Policeman
And for Noirvember: The Man Who Cheated Death and Pitfall (one of my favorites)
Ear Candy: On a long drive yesterday to those coal towns I mentioned above, I listened to Springsteen’s new album, Only The Strong Survive. It’s ok. Not really grabbing me, to be honest.
Watch: Sean Tuck on when photos become memories.
Hong Kong Free Press: The stylistic journey of legendary Hong Kong photographer Fan Ho.
NY Times: Climate change in photos
Ken Burns: America’s history in six photographs
In Color: The Psychology of Color In Marketing
Fast Company: This cover of Dolly Parton’s Jolene is AI Mastery. (It’s cool, don’t get me wrong. Just not sure how I feel about all this AI stuff…)
Atlas Obscura: A look inside the new CIA Museum

I recall being in the car park of the old Giants Stadium in 2009 and seeing a similar view of NY as you have here. Brings back good memories.
