Those night-time photos certainly have character and interest Ken. - Dave

Hope said...

You have taken the grand tour of the Brooklyn Navy Yard...thanks for sharing your tour with all of us!

Beautiful light in this photo. I can imagine it teeming with people and bustling with activity, but as it is, it reminds me of the 1930s depression.

Laurie said...

I am loving all of these, Ken! Every image is the setting for a great story...

Melanie said...

Great coverage--I have been to the Navy Yard numerous times with my Dad. The Navy Club was an amazing place..

I love the colors in this shot. This is a neat series of photos taken of a place I have never seen. Thanks KM.

Thanks for visiting my blog-back in the day you needed a military id to get into the entrance and be a commissioned officer to go to the Navy Club-my brother's bar mitzpha was there and I played the piano up on the big stage--quite an elegant affair I must say (I was 8 at the time)..Charlie Prince was in charge of the music--there was dancing and I remember meeting my first sommelier Martin there--unfortunately for me I drank a shirley temple and Dad liked extra dry vodka martinis--Martin was wonderful and it was a great place--they had a huge bowling alley on the first floor and a bar that made bangin hamburgers for $.50 each. Quite a trip down memory lane.

I love old buildings like this -- wonderful photo, because you could have gone depressing with it, but didn't. I always wondered about the multiple little window panes that went into making a big window space. What was the purpose? All manufacturing buildings of a certain period had them (to the right, and building in the background).

Melanie said...

In response to your question Ken Mac--it was a naval base-a military installation and "just walking about" was prohibited.

Somehow I'm expecting tumble weeds and gunslingers to enter the scene, but I know it's the wrong geography and style... maybe it's the light and the openness of the scene

OK this is my fav. You didn't ask but I"m feeling real comfortable here so I"m dishing out the advice. This is gorgeous. AH's right. THis could have been one sorry, sad series and you've shot it so beautifully and with that warm light. OH MY MY MY. KM you've outdone yourself. So are we g etting Virginia PLUS 3???

It's haunting image. Golden light is so alive yet we know it's a dead beauty. I hate the destruction of industry but it leaves us with marvellous subjects.
