from New York City history, (

Triange Shirtwaist Factory Fire, 1911

to abandoned places/urban exploration (

Staten Island Ship Graveyard

from music, (

The Sacred Harp

to food (

Lanza's - old school NY dining

from Europe (


to Mexico (

Valladolid, Yucatán

to Delaware (

New Castle, Delaware

from photography (

to Occupy Wall Street (

Zuccotti Park, Day 9 of OWS

And everything in between!

My inaugural post was on May Day (, about its quirky history as a Moving Day in New York, and about the arrival of Spring.

Streets, architecture, and people. Ruined places. History. Frozen moments. Great love for imagines wrought by beautiful mystery of film and vintage cheapy cameras. WRITING The vague, ephemeral. The historical - the ghosts behind the veil of time. Delving deeply into the intricacies of our physical and cultural world. Relaying memory and longing. And sometimes the absurd. Life runs deep.
