Hi Scott, I "Googled" your name and came across this photo sight. Again, very impressive. When you do something you show dedication to the fullest. You have honed your talents to the extreme. Keep it going.
I recently joined pbase & love your photos! I think it's insane how others are clearly envious of your talent. I say hello to you from Switzerland!
Thank you for '...Connective Tissue'. Will spend more time with it. And yes, I love the photographs. Retinal Photography, must look that up. Had interns hub bubbing outside the cubicle when I got eye exam, crowd grew for 'miracle' I was relaxed, but curious about miracle. Then head guy came up hall asking 'what's up.' You can imagine what he heard. Evidently I have retina shaped like Star of David, or Bethlehem. Head guy shewed them away. I can't look in camera, but when learning to draw and paint, I too felt 'connective tissue,' only I called it a 'hinge.', the edge, the shading, enabling one to turn the corner and walk around in your mind and experience.
Thrille you are going strong in 2011! You are amazing!
Those who bahs you are jealous of your talent! I love your visions!
I am thrilled you post your Street Photography! You are a gift!
nice photography and very nice view
Re: "Going the Distance" Thanks for sharing. You have a wonderful and natural photography skill.
Hi Scott-- checking out your new stuff-- i like it. miss you, Lesa
Still have Mabels' pic in the garage, 10 years now . I have never sat down and read like the day I opened my 1st Horse in 96. Since sold my bike and do not care to get another, but I am the hunt for a car much like yourself. You are still a great inspiration to me and my life. Thanks, SCott
THANKS for sharing. superb shots, you can feel the metropoli while going through y galleries,
regards from Barcelona, Volker
Thanks for dropping by. If you say you're about a mile FROM Chinatown, then you are IN Chinatown. I haven't been to NYC for many years, but from what people tell me, "Chinatown" has really sprawed in all directions. Sounds like you're about my generation...what ever happened to the dancing chicken of Mott Street?
Yes Scott,street photography is great,just like your work.
Impressive amount of wonderful work. You are a true master of street photography. Thanks!
Thousands of photos to look at... I have to come back over and over to carefully see everything, to admire and to think.
Definitely a set of galleries to take inspiration from, especially for B&W!
"STRING SECTION" title - Too good. Didn't want to scroll the thread too fast
so am giving feedback here.
"The King's Food Taster" title for S&T Forum photo. Hilarious!
I've been following the "How long is too long" thread with great amusement. I like the work you post and find it quite inspiring. There is a man I admire who's favorite quote is "You know you've become successful when people start to criticize you". Seems like you've arrived I'd say.
Keep up the good, and prolific, work
Thank you for your kind words on my "Tokyo moments
Gallery. The Story of your Son is very simular to
mine... and i followed with the passion of my heart
to this country to have a new beginning...
You have really great images in your Gallery,
especualy the B&W images...are Beautiful....
James Giovanni Pan
You have a wonderful eye for details and composition. I will come back for more!
Looks like somebody dragged the city slicker out into the desert beauty of Red Rock. On you, landscape looks good. ;^)
your pictures are very alluring and as one begins to explore them more closely the pictures begin to sing with detail and fun.
Hi Scott, I'm glad to have found your gallery. I miss seeing your images on FM.
Hi there. I'm so glad you posted your backyard shot--it's truly wonderful. You have quite a gift and I've enjoyed your galleries!
Thanks for your compliment. I will visit your forum soon.
Larry Cafaro & Jessica Kerr
I'm glad you're glad that I'm out hitting the streets and taking photos. I just took your advice, after all. Sometimes I get nice compliments on my work. That's when I wish I could explain the leg up that studying your approach and style gave me. "I studied at the Genghis Institute of Photography," I'd like to say. After all, credit where credit is due. Not that I'm trying to be just like you...as if that were even remotely possible...but I do remember many bits of advice you gave me, as well as studying your photos and getting you to answer questions about them. So...thanks, G. I hope that I can continue to get lessons in iconoclastic photography from you occasionally. I would like that very much.
Checkin out your website again. Very nice.
love, sister Nancy
Hmm... Scott, your comment made me return to your site.
Again I am fascinated by your street pics. They have a special attraction.
Cool guestbook, interesting information... Keep it UP
Thanks for your comment!
Geez, I wasn't aware of the effect of my photos.
I like your street pics very much.
Good Luck with your work
Hola me encanta el trabajo que estan haciendo y me encantaria poder participar.
Hey Scotty, I was one of your closet fans on Fred Miranda. I don't know what happened over there, but it's not the same without you there buddy. Glad you have this website though. great work, keep it up! Best, Sam
Scott, Just love the images around NY. Makes we want to go there to take some! Love the posts on FM.
Hi Scott, I'm at the Spalter's (stayed @ country house for New Years) and asked Diane if they ever hear from u and Diane directed me to this site. Wow, love the photos! Never knew about this. I'm still @CPMC (19yrs) in oncology. Be well and I wish u a great 2006.
Scott, Your photography is great. Just knowing of you through your Iron Horse writings I never suspected you to be able to come across so well with a camera. Keep up the camera and put down the pen.
Scott, enjoyed your website. Photos are great Nice seeing you again at Dr Rosenthals. Thanks for Digital camera advice - but have more questions? Can I e-mail? Rob De
Hello old friend. A wonderful representation of the body of your work, thank you.
Scott, Great photos. Thanks for sharing them with me.
You have a great eye, Scott. And a witty way to tell a story in a single image.
I always enjoy your work very much. It makes me think, too.
Nice place you've got here, thanks for inviting me over....
You've got quite a collection here! Wonderful work.
Hey Scott, Try writing for The Horse back street choppers, We miss you old Iron Horse gripes and oppinions. What Happend to Iron Horse? that rag was great
Definitely aglow from excitement about this new neon period of your work. However, don't forget your fans, who keep clamouring for more portraiture, especially of the self type. Keep up the smoldering hotness of your images!
Sam Antonio Photography
Long time viewer, first time reviewer! So many galleries, so little time to view. You have some great photos here. I have also seen your work over a Fred Miranda's site. Thanks for sharing your talent.
Thank you for sending me here. Some of the photos are extraordinary, all are very good. I love the site organization. Works smoothly and got me wherever I chose to go; not a trivial accomplishment in the world of clunky and ineffective websites.
leslie b. tanner
dear scott...what a delightful website...i am so impressed by your photos and your site...which i
assume you did yourself as you told me you are completely digital??? anyway, the great pleasure of my day (tuesday) just after seeing you at dr. rosenthals...keep on doing your bliss!!!
best regards and again thank you...
It is good to get to know more about you and all your accomplishments. This is a great webpage. It has been a privledge to view all of you albums and learn. Thanks for sharing your images and I will be back to look some more.
I like your work very much.
Scott, your photo's are great, makes me wish I were back in NYC. L
Congratulations for your wonderful webpage Scott, I told you many times: your pics of NY are wonderful, i can visit the Big Apple through your works!
Scott, Thanks for sending me to the site. I really like all of your work,it is so varied, that is what makes me look for your posts on WA. "Let's see what Scott came up with today". Love your comments and your comebacks, always a pleasure. Respect, Pat
You replied to a forum question I had re: D2X in which you said you do retinal photography. I would be interested to hear about your involvement. If you have the time, contact me through email
Osna & Jim Fenner
Great site, great images, great eye. Whatever it is, you've got it!
Osna & Jim Fenner
Scott! I love your photographs even more in your galleries.
Every single one has that special thing, what makes an object to be called an ART
Your images are really diverse in content and really sharp and clear. Great stuff.
Just like to visit this place---its got everything, Great photography, harleys and the good things in life. Keep up the good work...respect....rei
Scott, you shouldn't keep your website a secret from us WA viewers! Thanks for letting us inside your mind's eye for a while. On a side note, I always enjoy reading your humorous posts on WA.
Thanks for the opportunity to see your work.I particularly like the "Paris in New York" photo & the nature shots.
Gee Oh Precious one, don't know why I never realized you had a guestbook...Like Tony said..."Guess I'm stupid!" It was fun reading all your praises from your many fans...of which I am one :-) Thanks for all your pep talks and friendship...:-)
You can find the beauty in anything.
Not everybody can do that.
I love your comments on WA, I have just started really getting into photography after I purchased my first digital camera back in 2001, my background is in computers so digital photography fits right into that, I love taking landscape photography and I too like to see objects and landscape at different and unusual angles. It is amazing how many pictures you can take when you are shooting digital. I have already taken over 7800 photographs with my digital camera and it is still going strong. I really like the landscape photos on your site. If you ever get down to Florida then drop me a line and maybe we can meet up and discuss shop.
I never realized that you were so involved with photography "outside the eye." I visited the website and enjoyed both reading about your love of photography, and viewing your beautiful images. Sara and I have been doing nature photography for many years ( as well as family, travel, and other). Last month we put on a digital show at the NYC Audubon Society of our work over the past 28 years in Sanibel Island, Florida. It was a lotl of work, but went over very well.
Best regards to Patty. Please say hello to Dr. Rosenthal.
Scott, I am duly adding my comment in your guestbook. I have not seen all photos yet, so you can expect to meet me here in the mornings. One of former guests noted Genghis stands for 'genius'; to me it rings the bell of Kubla Khan (if you remember Colleridge or "Citizen Kane") although for now I cannot see how to connect the warrior with you... More remarks to come after I have seen some of the photos.
PS You have been taking pictures long before I was born and I am glad to note you still do it - there is hope for me.
I enjoy your pithy remarks on WA. You know Scott, you spelled "Genious" wrong, it's not spelled "Genghis".
hey buddy can't wait to see your website, thanks for sharing with me!
I hope you will get in touch with me. I'll be in New York Nov. 13-17th to do a documentary on the rescue workers from 9-11 who are now sick from working at Ground Zero. I'm looking for photographers to help capture our story, along with the film production. I am with an organization called Remember Rally that raises money (through motorcycle events) for those affected by the chemicals & toxins during clean-up. Please check out our website at
Please contact me at email@example.com for further information. I am also looking for people to help film the documentary as we will probably be working with rescue workers both days & nights. Thanks. Diane
rharold &diane spalte
scott- very exciting ,creative work. congratulations and thank you for letting us share your achievements.
Genghis, I just heard about Indian Larry's death. A great intellect. Great biker. He died on his bike, but then again, HOW ELSE would he have had it!
Really enjoyed the variety and reality of your street scenes. What fun you must have had taking these photos. Thanks for alerting me to them.
I have been to this site several times to both read your articles and to view your photos, don't know why I haven't signed the guestbook before, guess I'm just stupid. (LOL)
I have always admired your NYC photos, especially the downtown Manhattan photos. I still have so many good memories of my time working in the World Trade Center but I also have so many, many sad memories also, for obvious reasons.
Love the Vette, if I were still in the area, we could go cruising togeter, me in my Arrest Me Red Ragtop and you in yours. :-)
Stay well and sorry it took so long to sign in.
Hi Scott.... Mary is unquestionably one Red Hot BABE. Her lines, her COLOR just
scream SEX APPEAL; I can see why she turns heads. When I'm in my Vette, LQQINGD (Looking Good), heads turn also. There is just something about a Vette, no matter what her age that turns heads. I've had four Vettes, a 76 ~89 ~
93 ~ and now a 2000. So when you speak so fondly of Mary, I know exactly
where you're coming from. I love your articles and photography and Im honored that you including me in your article with Mary. See ya at WA. Like Ive said before, youre a man of many talents.;~) ~SAVE THE WAVE ~.
Hi Scott, I always look forward to seeing your pics on FM Forums, you've produced some amazing images! Cheers, Andrew www.onebackpack.com
Ghengis - It's great to see yer photography. Street scenes are my favorite. Really miss your screeds in the REAL I.H. I.E. the horse when under snows stewardship. Met you several times in lower manhattan and you were very gracious, while at the same time by yer stance i could see you were sizing me up. "Is dis guy a crazy or not" When and where will you be writing about Mabel an the M/C subculture? yer writing is sorely missed! RIDE ON
Your photo's are amazing. You have a very gifted talent. I love the colors so much I went out and Purchased a D1X.
can you email me your contact info.
Your photographs are beautiful! Now I know why you carry that camera around all the time. You definately catch things that I miss everyday going into the city. Your blessed with talent, that's for sure. Thanks for letting me know about the website. Looking forward to seeing new pics.
I went through some of your images and I can tell that you look at things in a way most of us do not. I liked the abstract adn general gallery. There is one that stayed with me. It is the one of a nice girl wearing a jeans on the back of an ornage bus. First I did not noticed it was a bus. Good eye on that !
I will go through all the images when I have some more time.
Keep shooting ! See you on WA
First of all, congratulation for your eye. You find the pictures in what most would usually find as boring subjects!
I also like the way you think... and the way you see the world.
Finally, i must thank you since your work will be a tool for me in my next chromes to help me develop my creativity!
P.S.: What do you think off when you look arround ? I usually wander around looking everywhere globaly and going smaller and smaller around subject that seem acceptable to me but i still don't find much.
Dear Scott , i enjoy very much your incredible pictures. As i said many times , i am not a photographer myself, but as an artist i apreciate a lot great clasical photography and you are a master on it.Wonderfoul immages breathtalking really!
Marty Lyons looks better in your picture than when he was playing for the Jets.
I checked out your other pictures. They are very good. I really liked your nature ones. You should do more of them. Thanks for sharing.
I am proud of my brother's (THAT'S YOU) photography. Only one of many talents!!!!!
Gorgeous crisp photos. Keep up the good work. love, your sister Nancy
Years spent in patients maculas with your own eyes drives another expression of the minds vision.
I enjoyed your photography and vision.
Scott, thanks for the invite to check out your site. I've just jumped from one to the next so it's too soon to comment. It was a kick to see the date on the photos and realize something as "done" as a photo actually carries some hint of the historic moment even if the image is contextually out of time. So far I'd say I love the texture of some of the images and the bold colors of others. I'll be back to get a better look. See you soon. Jon
You replied to my posts at FM. Your www was at the bottom so I checked you out. Of course, I like your stuff...it's really good. You are a fellow street photographer. I'm in Shanghai right now but I'll be back on the east coast in a month. Looking forward to continued sharing...and YES I'm jealous of your dual D1Xs...haha.
Beautiful work old friend. It is nice to see that you have a release for your talents.
Your older buddy,
Johnny Justice, Jr.
I'm so proud of your work! Mine is still in its infancy since I got a digital camera last year. You have inspired me to keep at it!
^^ really nice pics!!
havent visited in a long time..
so many new pics added haha..
i use d1x too but your pics are much better -_-"
Very nice pictures. Do you still teach Jow Ga?

Gracias por compartirlas
paul t werner
Scott, only had a minute to take a fast look.I was really impressed. Lynda Miller would be proud of you. Still have those bodybuilding pix from high school? I'll seriously check out the photos soon. Thanks,Paul
marjory e. horowitz
As the daughter of a fine photograper, I was really impressed. I love the moodiness and texture of the street scenes and your eye for composition. You have a lot to be proud of. You have a gentle, sensitive talent, which has universal appeal.
Marjory E. Horowitz
Beautiful work! It's late, and I just had time for a fast glance through a few of so many images. When I have time I want to study them slowly, carefully. Many reminded me of some of the assignments I give the kids: irony (unexpected juxtapositions), an urban alphabet (letters in found objects-you had two nice "x's" that I saw quickly), reflections (there was a gem you shot of 4 long windows, though personally I would have photoshopped out the credit card logos on the right side of the frame). It's nice to see how fluidly you seem to move between B & W and color, with complete pictorial ease. You understand the essence of each.
Hope you enjoyed penumbra. Heather
Scott, I always look forward to seeing a post from Genghis45 when I'm surfing through the Fred Miranda site. Great work!
Thanks for bringing me to your website. I especially liked the "Abstract" portion of the gallery, but appreciated all of the work. Pratt made a big mistake back in the day. Thanks, again and keep shooting.
Hello, I enjoyed your photos.Thx for sharing. :)
Thank you so much for sharing your magnificent photography with me. I was blown away! When I saw them, many were thought provoking, others just illicit a feeling. Your use of angles(bridges, bronze cat), and juxtapostions (palm tree and geometric shape) is great. Re the "Street" collection, I especially liked 1684, 1721, 1154, 1686. Nature #7, #4--this one was very thought provoking. Just two leaves up close, many people don't stop to really look at leaves. This one slowed me in my tracks, and I thought just how much I was not seeing which is all around me. I loved abstract #1,3,13,15, and 19.
Your collection is wonderful. It accomplishes the goal of good art: to get people to see, feel and think. I urge you to expose your collection to as many people as possible. I too have a love for photography, and I know what you mean when you express the great pleasure and joy you get from photography. Thanks Scott.
Scott, Thanks for sharing your photos and for helping save my sight, so that I might enjoy the gallery. They pictures are superb. I used to work at Modernage printing black & white and managed their color film lab before heading into the business world. My own work was all people and all b&w. Cheers,
I just discovered Fred Miranda website and was looking through the forum site and noticed your problem. I had exactly the same problem and got no help with Nikon Tech Suport. DPReview.com discussed the issue and a solution was found. I had tried uninstalling, running reg sweeper and reinstalling without success. Right-clicking the drive letter seemed to set up autoplay. NOT! There is a suggestion to download a PowerToy program called Tweak IU from Microsoft. Using this program, I found that autoplay was NOT turned on and by using it, my transfer problem is solved.
Download the program and install it. Start Tweak UI. It should be in a program group called PowerToys. Click on the plus sign next to "My Computer." Click on the plus sign next to "AutoPlay." Click on "Types" and turn on the "Enable Autoplay for removable drives." Your Nikon Transfer should now automatically start up when you plug your camera in or plug your compact flash card into a card reader.
Hi Scott. Thanks for sharing your images. I especially liked the tree images in the nature series.
Thanks again for all your help yesterday!
Your portfolio of photos look very interesting and beautiful. I'm having a little trouble trying to figure out how best to navigate through the website. Tom
Thank you so much for sharing your photos. They are so impressive. You are a very talented photographer. The street scene photos are intriguing. I look forward to seeing more of your work in the future.
I would tell people like to know about NYC to look at your galleries, they ARE New York City!! Thanks 4 sharing
Dear Scott, Your website design is great and of course, "Manhattan to Brooklyn" is amazing. This bridge can look quite lightweight, but in your pic there is the weight and mass of its great strength. See you tomorrow., Bern
Great work. I'm delighted to see your diversity. A side of you I had no idea existed. You have the "eye" of a talented observer and artist.
Visit my site to see ceramic work you didn't know existed... www.gordonperry.com
Great to see you have a place to showcase your photos. I was quite familiar with, and have enjoyed your street and abstract work at Nikonians, but your nature shots were quite new to me. Really beautiful. Having said that, my favourite image was undoubtably 'Persistent Patriotism'. A beautifully executed shot that is so full of meaning.
WOW... this is a terrific site for viewing your incredible photos. Much easier access. Thanks for sending me here! Started REviewing your galleries. For as much as I relish your eye and skill, your wit with titles puts it all over the top for me. Often, you have me laughing aloud. Your advice about Nikon D1x is appreciated: it is the solid feel of the old NikonF that I love...
Edited for "f5" slip above
Really enjoyed the Street Scenes....I did'nt realize that you were SO TALENTED !!!
You have a GREAT eye for composition and the titles were a plus.. added attraction.
Don't stop! Keep up the good work !!!
I will be checking out your other galleries real, real soon..
The message written below this one was wrote using the name of a family friend because
I do not have a computer,
This has been really enjoyable. I am glad you are sharing your work. Looking forward to more. Have a great year ahead!
Hi, Dad. What's shaking in the land of Harleys, photography, guns and animals? Never knew you shot such beautiful photography. I'm a point and click man myself.
I LOVE YOUR WEBSITE SCOTT. I REALLY ENJOYED THE NATURE PHOTOS. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK.
A MUCH BETTER WAY TO DISPLAY PICS.......MERRY XMASS
Some really eye-catching pics. Your shots of Manhattan and the East River brought back some memories and I got a chuckle out of some of your captions ("Pole Position", "Palm Prison"). However you should get rid of that picture of the gas gulping, air polluting Harley (Wes's Bike). Just doesn't belong.
Genghis: Great shots. The titles are half the fun. I especially liked "Pole Position" and the abstract ones like "X marks The Spot" and "Window Defects". Makes me want to get the Minoltas out and burn up the film. We have a digital but not an SLR yet.
Keep it up. Tom
I have been shooting photographs for the better part of my 52 years, not as a pro but as a hobbiest. I went digital a couple of years ago with a Sony DSC-707. My Minoltas don't get as much use as they used to.
I believe you can tell alot about a person by studing thier photos. It is probaly a good thing I'm not a physcologist. 707
Really, great job.
This is a really nice website! Enjoyed your photographs very much, but will have to come back to really study them. Quite impressive. Did you know Bern gave me her old Nikon F?? You might have to teach me how to use it!!
Dr J aka the God Empress of Dune :-)
Wonderful photos. I jusk got my D1x. I know you from optimal. An exciting new world of digital photography. Thanks for your display.
keep up the good work!!
