I’m not sure why I shoot, other than it’s something that I feel I need to do. I collect cameras, but it’s much more fun to use them, rather than just admiring them on a shelf. Of course, this means I only use film, which has become anachronistic seemingly overnight.
I live in New York City, and it’s becoming increasingly harder to find new ways to see the same old things, especially when everybody is shooting and sharing. Though I’d say that’s the challenge for all photographers, and it’s one I relish.
Thank you so much.

This photo has been giving me no end of trouble. I’m still trying to figure how to get the best out of it via scanning the negative and photoshop. You can see the last “best” version here. I think I’m going in the right direction, but I’m still not quite there yet.

Sometimes I forget I actually have Photoshop, so I decided to clear up those errant letters on the left side of the picture. I’m not sure if it’s making things any better. I’m sure if I put in some real time and tried really hard I could cleanly eliminate the dude on the right hand side, but I have other things to attend to today.
