Heart Rocks


Heart Rocks, Long Island Sound, Long Island, New York, North Fork"

When I started exploring the shoreline of the North Fork of Long Island, I noticed that there where a lot of rocks shaped like hearts. I collected them and one day put them back in the water and photographed this scene.

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in

my heart) i am never without it (anywhere

i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done

by only me is your doing, my darling)

i fear

no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want

no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)

and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant

and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows

(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud

and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which


higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)

and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

 i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

e.e. cummings

New York City Landmarks

New York City is my favorite place to photograph; each day there is something new to see and experience in the greatest city in the world. Photography is about editing; to expose what you want out of infinite possibilities. I have created over 300,000 photographs of the city. I am pleased to have narrowed it down so I can share some of my favorite images and places in the city with you in this book.
