Floral Memorial

Floral memorial on the sidewalk on Thompkins at Myrtle

In the recent months, it wasn't evident anything significant happened on this corner. There are many corners in Bed-Stuy like this. Few get similar attention, if any. Most are unmarked.

This summer, one spot on my street had a prayer candle out for a few nights after the shooting and a NYPD flyer promising a reward for information for a day before wind blew it away. It wasn't replaced. The scene returned to be just a public sidewalk.

Divergence in Drapery Decisions

Neighbors in the night on Quincy Ave. in Bed-Stuy.

It's easier to peer into a life being lived inside when the lights are on and drapes are drawn.

Hitting the Road, But After Practicing Rudimentary and Stupid Photography

After dinner with Ma at Lulu's, where our waitress recognized me as a regular from my college days, and sorting through the client tasks that amassed while I was preoccupied with Life Itself, I began the drive back to NYC.

Nightcrawling in Bloomfield, Pittsburgh, on a Sunday

Laundromat storefront at night

The birthday festivities over, my parents have gone to a hotel near the hospital to prepare for Dad's early morning surgery.

My way to process things was to take a night drive in and through and out of the city. And while there, wander quiet, empty Pittsburgh streets with a camera.

SH T sign at Posh Tomato

After I left Sonny's, I noticed this sign across the street from where I'd parked my car. Poor Posh Tomato, their sign lights are 70% burnt out, leaving them only with SH T lit.

Considering David Alan Harvey at Sonny's

A friend and her boo were hanging at Sonny's bar. I dropped in to have a beer and unwind. 

As I sat at our table, I kept thinking about the Instagram photos I've been seeing from David Alan Harvey. He's a photographer who lives down this way, I think, at least as far as I can tell from the images he posts from his workspace

New Neighbors at Night

There are far fewer people on the streets here in Bed-Stuy than there were in Williamsburg. What people there are on the streets at this hour aren't on their way to a destination. They're seated and stationary, their activity extending to holding group conversations on stoops or in unfolded folding chairs near the entrances of their buildings. I'm on a folding chair on my roof. I purchased two of them from Ikea recently, along with a folding table.
