Lead Generation

FDNY paramedics strategically parked their ambulance smack dab in a bike lane to encourage cyclist calamities and develop new business while they stopped for coffee at Brooklyn Roasting Company's location on Flushing Avenue. I was in coffee shop working when I saw them ditch the vehicle here. 

REQUISITE DISCLAIMER: I respect the FDNY's work and general heroism.

Surfers Thereza & Matej

couchsurfers Matej and Thereza

I came to realize I don't document the interactions I have with the surfers who crash through this pad.

I've taken head-on snaps of previous surfers, some friendly semi-stagey shots. I've taken no good candids showing the things that make hosting random strangers worthwhile. So, mid-conversation, while we were playing "Whose Country Has More Problems?" I excused myself to retrieve a camera then came back to my spot on the floor.

Subway Sleeper

He was asleep when I got on at 86th Street. He woke up when they called for 59th street, packed up his pad, and got off the train.

How I Spent the Vernal Equinox 2015

Spring just sprung. Earth experienced the equinox at 6:45pm. 

From when I arrived up until about an hour ago, a gal'd been sitting next to Shirley Bassey in that yellow chair. She'd just moved to NYC from Saint Louis, was very chatty. I was trying to get my work done. I politely engaged in conversations when she would initiate them about every 10 minutes.
