Not in a facebook kind of way but in an animal on a farm kind of way.

Someone had some fun with the subway signage at the Essex Station. The man in the middle is hardly amused.

social networking

3763257285 a92438850f o social networking
Today I attended a seminar called Facebook vs. Face to Face, which discussed the benefits of both online social networking and the old fashioned talking-to-someone-in-the-same-room method, in hopes of expanding a budding photography career. Generally conservative in any kind of social networking, I am trying to embrace this new way of communicating via Facebook, Twitter, et al. In certain circles, it’s almost considered rude if one does not share what they ate for breakfast. Do people really care if I’m flabbergasted about how many ingredients there are in a chicken nugget? Granted, this might not directly help my photography career, but I guess it’s a way of starting or continuing a dialogue with my name attached to it. I would love for my photos to speak for themselves, but sometimes a status update from the photographer provides food for thought.

Saturday evening came to a head with beers and burlesque after a relatively calm and quiet day.

The earth’s gravitational pull was still in effect, even in the moon bounce. Rocket cars, live music and ping pong were among some of the other attractions at this year’s PlogerPalooza. Calling it all fun would be a huge understatement.

This weather is reminding me of our time in Bangkok earlier this year. A spicy hot (and delicious) meal would take your mind off the other heat.

Congratulations to Misaki (pictured right) for her first solo photo show, Solitude Sanctuary! Her beautifully silent images contrasted nicely with all the wonderful friends who came out in support tonight.

Classically trained, this pianist keeps a number of pianos stored around town and depending on the subway stop he picks on a particular evening, he somehow moves it to a platform of his choice. I could miss many trains listening to his music.

I checked out the new High Line park the other day and was very impressed with how the architecture melded old New York with new New York, nature with city life.

nice threads!

Hats (and heads?) off to Marcos and Gabriel for creating BoroThreads – a totally cool online shop selling NY based tshirt, hoodie and bag designs (I personally love the original dutch-spelled Manhattan and Brooklyn t’s). And I was lucky to be able to photograph the creators wearing a selection of these hip threads. Check it all out at and
