Once upon a time, I wanted to be a photographer (“picture that, how many years old, young enough to mix up love with career goals“).
Every year, I’d visit family in New York and would yearn for my next photo shoot of my favorite city. These are some of the photos I took, most of which I developed the old-fashioned way, by hand, from negative to print, in my most favorite place of my teenage world- the darkroom.
Taken in Brooklyn- reminds me of “Once Upon A Time In America”:
Twin Towers from the Empire State Bldg (I think):
The Limelight, church-turned-nightclub- before it became a shopping mall:
Flipped when I later saw this guy in Natalie Merchant’s “Carnival” video
(he’s wearing an elephant nose- only in New York City)
Dave’s Quality Meat is actually a sneaker store:
My favorite part about Peter Luger‘s- the vintage cash register:
Bleeker Street Records Kitty:
My place of birth:
Light at the end of the tunnel:
How do you pass your time on the train?
