walking past

For some reason I've lately been taking a lot ofphotos of people walking by interesting walls and backgrounds. What's fascinates me about it that the same backdrop seems to have different meanings depending on the wprson walking by.

lunch in the city

A
Is this a small laid back town in Australia or a New York City? Both actually. Ruby's on Mulberry at Spring Street. In the neighborhood we call NoLiTa. Lovely place for a burger and a beer. And the coffee is outstanding. The Aussies know their coffee.

angles in soho, china town, new york

Some days things just look very different through the lens than they do with the bare eye. Like the lens was from some time long passed.

have the last penny, too, sir

Nope,
He's not sharing his wealth with the little guy.
He's taking the last penny.
That's a picture of today's America.
the art piece is at the 14th street 8th Avenue on the subway

a favorite food place

Nice Green Bo, on 66 Bayard Street in Chinatown, New York City. Great dumplings. Fresh food in general. A touch of Schezuan and a bit of Shanghai. Not the typical greasy stuff although the menu reads as most others. The room is just as ugly as most small China food joints most everywhere in the world. New York's unfriendliest waiters, which says a lot, consdering the stone faced, over stressed (over stressing to turn table around as quickly as possible during lunch hours) and generally unfriendly wait staff in most Chinese restaurants in NY. But who cares. The food is great, portions large and the tab is small.

louis mendes, photographer legend

I ran into him just south of Madison Square Park on Broadway. A very kind gentleman. A star. A legend. I believe he is over 70 now. He wasn't all too impressed by my puny digital Nikon D700. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/03/nyregion/03polaroid.html http://www.facebook.com/LOUIS.MENDES.PHOTOS
