Bruce Appelbaum

has been a member since Jun 2007 and goes by brucea.

I am Bruce Appelbaum, living in the suburbs of NYC, wife, kids, dog, job. Photography has been my a hobby for 50+ years, and I still work at developing the "eye." Formerly used film, strictly digital now, using a Canon 5DIII and an assortment of lenses. Many years working in developing countries, tons of slides and prints. My passport photo from my "Indiana Appelbaum" days.

My passion is New York City -- the seen but not observed parts. My faves: Brooklyn Bridge and Flatiron Building.
