Even if they are a bit of a nuisance with the frequency of different crews who all seem to converge upon the various train lines on the weekends, I’m always appreciative of their dedication to their craft and their hustle. Twenty years ago, these could have been the same kids that would stick up an entire train car or slash an innocent passenger in the face as part of their initiation into a gang. Urban artistry, which is such an important part of NYC’s fabric, needs to be acknowledged, respected and supported.

I met Tanya, who just moved back to the city after being away for 9 years in the military. I approached and asked to take her photograph and initially she was taken aback. She said that she had been approached earlier and was wondering if that was the latest trend; to approach strangers requesting to take their photo. I decided to take a seat next to her and explain a little bit about myself and what I do. Having Tumblr on my phone and being able to show her some of my work put her at ease. I usually don’t do the color pop thing, but as I loved her lipstick, but was still feeling in a B&W kinda mood…well anyway….
Thanks, Tanya.

A few photographs from the scene of the electrical fire in the PATH tunnel yesterday in Chelsea. I easily counted at least 20 fire trucks. It was really quite the scene.

2014 Labor Day Carnival . Brooklyn, NYC . PT 5.

Another year of color, great music, great food and plenty of lovely women. Unlike past years of recent recollection, this Labor Day was a SCORCHER!! An onlooker standing right next to me unfortunately collapsed from heat exhaustion. Other than that, I haven’t heard of any incidents occurring at the parade. Enjoy!
