Work prints II

Here's the rest of those little work prints I scavenged from my parents house. They range from probably late '99 till summer of '01. I'm surprised how well some of them scanned.

A view out the window of a 15 pass on my first trip to the desert

One of the nice things about SVA was the unlimited color darkroom use..they stayed oped 7 days a week till 4 in the morning.

There's lots of photos of Nick from that time..here he is at Riis Park in Queens

Probably from this time of year..looks kind of frosty

iPhone pics from today

I had to run some errands in midtown. Took some snaps with the 'ol iphone..

Grand Central at sundown

Depressing sign


A typical midtown hallway

It smells like something crawled under the fridge and died...Esao going in for a closer look.

If anybody that looks at this blog has a Contax T3 (in good shape and preferably black) they don't use and are thinking of selling please get in touch...I don't want to use an iPhone anymore..

I went out to Jersey again.

I really like this photo and this view from the diner window

We went upstate for a bit and found this abandoned drive in. For some reason it really bummed me out.

The screen was so big and looked cool from the overgrowth

In the field next door there was an abandoned driving range that we explored. The grass was really nice and deep.

It doesn't take long for things to go to shit huh?

We also found a construction site with tons of stuff laying around to skate on. We spent half an hour building this sweet bank ramp up to these girders

I only managed to shoot about 8 photos before security gave us the boot

It was windy and cold yesterday..a view of the GW

The park overlooking the bridge is pretty sweet

It was nice to get out of the city for a day.

Random snaps II

A few more random snaps.. these were neg scans...haven't gotten around to cleaning the little print scans yet.

This first bunch are all about 10 years old. I have no idea where this photo of Nick was taken.

Found this weird one of him and Dad too..

We used to go to this hill when the ground was really dry. If you flew through the parking lot and ollied into the grass you jammed all the way down to the street. It's a lot steeper than it looks here..

Al on the train

Brendan getting soaked on a Luis job out in Cali

Some remaining photos of pops doing the leaves from a few weeks ago.

Break in

Old photo I found at my parents house. I remember taking this around pier 17 early on a weekend morning after this dude found his car all broken into.

Summer of '98
