PENTIMENTO, POSTERS

In the continuing battle of New York poster real estate, there is a constant shuffle of place and replace.  Strangely beautiful byproducts of this struggle are the humorous, surreal, abstract and artful pieces that emerge in-between.

PHOTO-OP ALLEY

We live in a photo-op city and its an interesting coincidence that the back street alley across from us has a 19th century bridge that makes for an extremely popular photo shoot location.  I rarely walk by without some picture taking activity going on. Here are a first and a last photo-op sandwich with a few other recent items thrown in,

Leaping cat people

Mom documenting a Halloween cape

 
East Village alley park

Water sports in Washington Square

another alley on the Lower East Side

of course, the wealth of backgrounds works for professional shoots as well...

Musicians from Philly do a portrait in front of a favorite mural in Williamsburg.


and winding up across the way on Staple Street,
 (the official name) in Tribeca.

HEADS UP

My fascination with the proliferation of portraits that pop up on city walls continues...HEADS UP! with special thanks to the many artists, anonymous and otherwise who contribute to the flow.

TEE'S-R-US

Summer is here and the Tee's are out. Here's an update on this longstanding fashion base with its wonderful and varied visual cascade of pop culture pronouncements.

Love, photography and an owl, ...couldn't get better!

"Mola Moderne", from 1992, and a favorite from the 
multitude of Tee's I designed in the 80's and 90's.
