slice and a smoke.

The friends I stayed with in Brooklyn have a wonderful band called Swamp Cat. You should definitely check them out. (Ukulele, spoons, washboard, trumpet, accordion…pure awesomeness.) I was lucky enough to get a chance to attend a show of theirs on my trip to New York City. After the show, a few of us were famished, and what do you do when you're starving in the middle of the night in New York City? Grab a slice of pizza. This is my friend Nate outside the pizza place around the corner from the venue.

Fun fact about this photo: this was taken outside the same pizza place I grabbed a shot of from a cab over a year ago…seen here.

on the subway.

What kind of photographer would I be if I didn't also include an obligatory shot from one of my many rides on the subway? As with the Brooklyn Bridge, the subway is another cliche shot that I'll always get if given the chance. The thing that always strikes me about riding the subway is how quiet it is. Everyone is fully engulfed in their own little antisocial world. Whether it's reading, sleeping or listening to their iPod, each person has their own invisible wall they've built to hide behind to avoid interaction with other people. It's an odd world down there in the rumbling cars of the subway.

biking brooklyn.

Following my attempt at posting the photos from my trip in chronological order, this photo was taken just after walking off the Brooklyn Bridge. I was still on the bike/walk path on the Brooklyn side and couldn't resist snapping away at the bikers that passed by. I wish I'd had access to a bike in Brooklyn to ride around, as my city riding has been limited to Philadelphia, but it was nice to see all the bikers out on the hot afternoon.
