City Street

Lunch Break

Sometimes you just need to sit, smoke a cigarette and check your social media.

Rush Hour

I have been avoiding Chinatown for a minute because it seems to have become cliche  over the last few years, also it has been overrun with tourists on holiday in New York, I don’t have a problem with tourists I just try to avoid them when I’m walking around. Anyway I took a detour and cut thru Chinatown and was reminded why I continue to stay away.

Out of My “Comfort Zone”

Was out and about with Mr. Lorenzo Mitil yesterday and ended up north of Houston Street which I never do because I’m my opinion it is boring and there is nothing to photograph and I might have wee bit wrong, but I will still stand behind my original opinion.

Drunken Scooters

They have brought these shit Lime scooters to Hoboken and I will be waiting to hear the first  story of a drunk bastard walking out of one of the bars by the path station, getting on one and either crashing into a parked car, a group of people or mostly likely getting railed by a car and I hope the latter doesn’t happen, but I have seen pretty strange things happen in the mile square.

Friday Morning Walkabout

Shot from a Friday morning walkabout with Lorenzo Mitil who was out shooting some Cinestill BwXX around the Financial District in Lower Manhattan. Side note check out the Oculus during the morning rush hour, it’s like watching an episode of Planet Earth the only thing missing is Sir David Attenborough narrating.

Cinestill BwXX

I first saw a few images that were shot using Cinestill BwXX and wanted to get a roll or two to test out. I looked for it at B & H Photo Video and saw it was on back order which had it for the best price so when they did get back in stock I order two rolls, also I did see it on Amazon but for double the price of all the stores that did carry it. The first roll I just started shooting around the city in the Financial District because you can get harsh light and dark shadows you can get and shot the second roll down in Philadelphia where I did get some decent shots. If your like me and only shoot black and white when using film you will love images you get from it, believe me even the really shit images I took have me looking them over twice just because of the feel the film gives them.

East Broadway

This is a composite on two shots of East Broadway in Chinatown in Manhattan. Everyone takes this shot when they walk across the Manhattan Bridge and if you’re  lucky you will be able to get the shot in January and you will see the decorations for Chinese New Year, but in my opinion it really is a boring shot aside from just taking for your personal collection.
