It’s apparent, but not surprising to me, that even a brief outing to the MoMA rubs off on me. There were only two Dali’s there, small ones. That was surprising. The guards were protecting Starry Starry Night – that was the most popular picture when I was there; I couldn’t get close enough to see[…]
From the IRT (Interborough Rapid Transit) project. Photograph by Matt Weber, with assistance of yours truly. This is the abandoned Worth Street “Ghost” station on the #6 line. Nobody knows yet who this fella is, but I first saw his photo when Matt and I began this project. But more “faces” appeared, and now we[…]

The project continues… Hopefully tomorrow I’ll pick up a battery pack for the Sunpak 383 so that I can get faster recycle times. The train generally goes through the City Hall station at full speed. To do this right, you’ve got to be able to fire off a burst from the flash – or else[…]
