It’s all about perspective

Big Coffee Cup
Big Coffee Cup

Using a special perspective lens given to me by Claes Oldenburg, and a highly secretive technique, I captured this spilled cup of coffee on the sidewalk near Penn Station this morning. The cup of coffee appears to dwarf the taxi cabs, and pedestrians…. but its all about perspective :)


  1. Seriously incredible image in deed. I love the coffee cup there. Good spill and I am getting hooked by this shot

  2. Good shot indeed. I visited NYC in ’99. Stayed with artist friend and wife in the Tribeca area and was smitten by the city. It lived up to all my expectations. I didn’t do the tourist thing, it was the streets and the people. I walked blocks. Rode the buses. Took the subways. Did a post-midnight tour of the Village backstreets, side at street cafes, sketching (imagining I was
    a table away from Kerouac, Ginsberg, and Burroughs), toured the taverns, watched a dumpster diver pour cola remains on the sidewalk and crush and sack the cans. Stood on my friend’s 5th floor fire-escape, smoking, having my morning coffee, watching the sidewalk rushes of people on their way to work.
    Sal’s Paradise. For me.

    You photo triggered much. Thanks.

  3. actually i need a one cup coffe like this one .. so i wont buy any coffe for the rest of my life .. the image look nice work

  4. really cool image. was photoshop involved at all? this is going to drive me crazy trying to figure out how you did this. haha.

  5. All I will say is that sometimes things *are* what they seem to be :)

  6. this image looks nice but can i find a cup like this one in a coffe

  7. The cofee drops from the sidewalk are too thick. You should blur the margins.

  8. BS!! I walked down the street that day and saw that cup of coffee on the street as part of a promotion!!!! It was just as big as the picture shows. Secret technique?? What a fraud.

  9. Todd… 2 words : lighten up

    Look at the date of the post, and get a sense of humor.
