thankyou Mustafah Abdulaziz, general pimp and slightly above average photographer, for the title.

*disclaimer: mustafah abdulaziz is an absolute stud photographer, and you should check ot his work*

this weekend saw visits to pastis with nat, bryant park with a slew of unemployed yet highly entertaining interns, a tour de force of hipster nation williamsburg where i will be moving in under a week (success), mice running across apartment floors in the west village, and the smell of something that died in the new york subway.

i watched a thunderstorm from my raised train platform in queens strike down into manhattan. that was pretty spectacular. i was out for the night and didnt bring the strap.. but speaking of, i’m really proud of nyc leica owners.. i bump into at least one a day. i have 5 rolls of 35 and 1 roll of 120 shot on the seagull that need to be run.. thats on the list for this week.

sat and listened to the not exactly world famous new york jazz collective for the second time this weekend in washington square park with xstina and her friend

here’s what caught my eye in the world.

  1. The shot of the band in the subway carriage is awesome. I should be visiting NY for the second time next summer, I really can’t wait. The first time was over 5 years ago, and I hadn’t yet discovered photography – I’ll be making up for that this time round.

  4. “You can’t hold a girl with a camera in your hand.”

    I beg to disagree. But you know me.
