Thanks! I'm digging through decades of cobwebby, dusty troves (negatives, prints, etc.) hoping for something that isn't irremediably scratched or stained.

well, these that youve posted are absolutely great- theyre letting me see my city back in the day as ive imagined it, but never actually seen it... im really digging them. you should most definitely feel free to share any you want here... i have a feeling it wont be long before your posts start picking up more even fans on here, hahaha.

what were those cops doing?and why did you photograph them?

Biking in NYC: Springtime Is Upon Us

Now that the comparatively balmy weather of spring is upon us, I've been riding my sleekly fast roadbike to work. You see, when I do the train/crosstown-bus combo, my commute takes damn near an hour. When I walk, it takes...
