Today, we demonstrated in front of Governor Cuomo’s office at 633 3rd Ave, New York, NY 10017.
A coalition of nyc organizations were present, speeches were given and protestors held up signs. We called for New York Governor Cuomo to unite the New York State Senate Democrats against fascistic President-elect Donald Trump.
On Sunday, my beautiful fiance encouraged me to go early to see the “elites” run past and, amazingly, I was able to photograph the youngest winner of the Marathon, 20 year old Ghirmay Ghebreslassie! Just look at the focus on his face.
Hey all, I hope you’ve had a great week. I’ve been busy shooting 35mm film! This morning, I just finished a roll with my Nikon F3HP. And I’ve also been shooting a test roll with my “new” used Olympus XA2 point and shoot 35mm camera (pictured above). I just shot an entire roll with it and will bring it down to Luster Photo & Digital for development.
Recently, I had the chance to meet director, sculptor and fine artist Jim Mckenzie in SoHo. We first got in touch on Instagram about a year ago when I saw photos of his bright, colorful, fanciful art with it’s touch of melancholy. When we met in person, I immediately noticed his eyes. They were full of mirth and energy. I’d even say he has, “laughing eyes”.
Sometimes I only get the opportunity to learn about a photographer on the day he or she passes away. It’s a weird experience – discovering an artist’s life work because of their obituary. I’m both elated to learn about an artist I never knew existed, and at the same time, I feel sad I never knew about them when they were walking the Earth.
