The Blue Hour

October 14, 2009

I was reading the Pony Rider blog this morning and came across a gorgeous Brooklyn-based blogger I’d not heard of before, The Blue Hour. Do you know Brian Ferry and his amazing photography? This week you will because I’ve decided to add him as my blog of the week.

The Blue Hour

His photos really speak to me, as I’m sure they will to you, and I really dig the emotion this guy puts into his work – each capture radiates some kind of mood of the moment that I love. Do you remember when you were a kid and some boy would stare at you and you’d give him that smart school girl reply, “Take a picture, it lasts longer!”. In this case, that little boy took you seriously, grew up, and became an awesome photographer.


The Blue Hour

I love the mood in his work, there are lots of shadows, some darkness, a bit melancholy and a bit gritty, with this hopeful light that dances in from out of nowhere… Gorgeous work, Brian!

    You’re right Holly! He’s so talented. I love his blog too; it seems to me that he is taking us to a journey with his photos, nostalgic shots.

    I’m so glad you posted about Brian. He is so talented, as both a photographer and writer.
    I really love his recent images and description of his dinner at Delancy in Seattle.

    Funny because I was thinking some of these images seemed so familiar… a lot from Seattle! And captured beautifully, Brian! Always nice to see something familiar through someone else’s eyes to get a newfound appreciation.
