Mike Podhorzer Photography Opening Reception at D’s Soul Full Cafe Sunday September 8th 3-5pm

Mike Podhorzer - D's Soul Full Cafe Hoboken - Photography New Mexico

At  D’s Soul Full Cafe, 918 Willow Avenue,  in Hoboken New Jersey Mike Podhorzer will be the host of an opening reception for his photography exhibit tomorrow Sunday, Sept 8 from 3:00 – 5:00 PM; His photos will be on display at the Cafe from Sept. 6th through Oct. 3rd.  The reception will also feature live music by Debby Schwartz.

Photographer Bio: Mike Podhorzer grew up in Manalapan, NJ and after 26 wonderful years of suburban life, decided to move to beautiful Hoboken, where he currently resides. Mike would have never guessed that photography would be a part of his future. When he was younger, he used to go on annual family vacations and complain as his shutterbug parents would continually pull the car over to take photos of the stunning scenery being driven past. Then everything changed in 2008 when a business trip required Mike to travel to San Francisco, providing the motivation to purchase his very first camera. This event marked the beginning of his photographic journey.

Mike specializes in macro flower photography and nature landscape scenes. Although relatively new to the art scene, Mike has had his work displayed at a popular chain of tea cafes in New York City. View Mike’s entire photography portfolio by visiting his online gallery, Pod’s Pics, at www.PodsPics.com.

Marc Anthony Photography – Free Family Portraits at Pier A from 9am-4pm Today! Holy Free Stuff Batman!

Filed under: Free Stuff,Hoboken,photo — Tags: , , — TheBoken @ 9:00 AM

On Wednesday November 21st, Marc Anthony Photography will be shooting free family portraits at Pier A on 100 Sinatra Drive in Hoboken, NJ. He will be there from 9am to 4pm. Any family affected by Hurricane Sandy is free to come and have their photo taken. The images will be placed online for you to freely download and print.

Marc Anthony adds”

“I am shooting these portraits simply as my little way to do something. New Jersey is my home and my heart breaks for those that lost everything. Homes can be rebuilt but photos can’t be replaced. That’s why when I fire happens in a home photos are usually the first thing people try and save. I’m not in this for any personal reason. I shoot weddings and I’m busy enough as it is to use this for personal gain. I just want to make that clear. So if you want a free photo taken to mark the start of something new then please come by.”

Photos of the Day–Halloween “Cloud Zombies” at 11th and Garden Street Hoboken


Halloween Zombies at 11th and Garden Street Hoboken


It is getting near Halloween and every year the house at the NE  corner of 11th and Garden Street in Hoboken again this year does not fail to disappoint with an elaborate Halloween decoration and a message on the dangers of being too connected in the Internet age.

The message reads as follows:

“(Internet) “Cloud Zombies” consumed by their mobile devices, Connected or Disconnected?

We play an active role in determining the reality we experience by how much information we allow our senses to take in and our capacity to process that information. This piece is about how technology and the Internet, though great tools to connect us, can also disconnect us from the space and place we in in and those around us. www.stevevizena.com

And speaking of being absorbed by the cloud you can check out more photos on TheBoken’s Instagram account theboken. Smile

Google Maps Street View Returns to Hoboken – Black Paw Photo from 10/8-10/26/2012

Filed under: Bars,Hoboken,Restaurants — Tags: , , , , — TheBoken @ 3:35 PM

Here is a unique opportunity for qualifying businesses to get embedded into Google Maps in an interactive way….

Google Map’s Street View is returning

to Hoboken NJ from 10/8/12 to 10/26/12

Google Maps Street View is returning to Hoboken October 8-26 to photograph the interiors of qualified businesses.

Google Maps is now taking Street View Inside Businesses with a brand new program. The official title for this new program is “Google Business Photos” and it gives the public the ability to take a look at the inside of a business as they search and shop online. According to Anthony from Black Paw Photo, a Certified Google Trusted Photographer, only a limited number of businesses can be included during this visit. Interested business owners should register online as soon as possible if they would like to participate in this unique opportunity.

The Shannon Irish Bar, a popular local sports pub, is one of several local businesses in Hoboken that have already added Google Business Photos. To see a complete list of businesses in Hoboken that have added the service and to register your business, please visit: http://www.insidebusinessnyc.com/hoboken/

Sample Photo of Wicked Wold Tavern in Hoboken -Black Paw Photo

Using Google Street View technology, Black Paw Photo’s team of Certified Google Photographers creates a 360-degree Virtual Tour of a business location beginning on the street and progressing in and throughout the establishment. It works just like Google Street View, but inside the business location. This provides an interactive experience for consumers as they click through, pan 360 degrees up and down, and even zoom in on merchandise, decor, or signs for a closer look. Google Business Photos also includes a set of professional photographs. The Virtual Tour and the set of photos are published on a business owner’s Google+ Local page, Google Maps, and on Google Search.

To further increase the exposure for a business, the tour is also embeddable on the Business Owner’s website or Facebook Page by simply copying and pasting the code available on Google Maps. Users can also access the Street View Virtual Tour on all Android mobile devices through the Google Maps App.

According to Anthony from Black Paw Photo, “Most new customers will first find a business by “Googling it”. The Virtual Tour lets business owners grab a customer’s attention with a new feature that invites people to “See Inside”. This makes the experience of finding you online memorable and personal, which can increase the likelihood that they will continue to explore your business and become a customer.”

“This is a smart investment for business owners because it keeps evolving. Google is constantly releasing new features in Google Maps and Google Search for businesses that have a Google Virtual Tour, and this adds ongoing value to the participants of this program.”

Photo of the Day – World Trade Center and Stonehenge

Today’s photo of the day is this editor having a bit of fun with FilterMania2 and Instagram iPhone apps. I have been working on a series of shots of the World Trade Center with other wonders of the world and I thought Stonehenge would make a nice contrast in architectural styles.
