iPod - iNYC

In case I make it into art galleries in the far future, such pictures with huge billboards might actually be the interesting ones:
"Oh look the iPod - remember that?"
"Yeah that were wild times! And wooden billboards in New York City...wow."

Or something like that :)

BMX Riders

Taken in Brooklyn.
I think I would like to live in Brooklyn. I would snap a lot of street pictures, especially because this place appears so timeless to me.

Prison Chess article and thoughts about Twitter

Pete Brook runs a website named "Prison Photography" and wrote an article about my Prison Chess project. This time, I was the one who had to answer questions. You can find it right here.

Pete Brook's blog concentrates exclusively on prison photography. I had no clue that a website with such a subject exists until he found me on Twitter. Twitter is a tireless machine when it comes to connecting people of similar interests.

My OLIVA picture is a good example. It will soon decorate the new website of the OLIVA restaurant.
When I asked the question of my post yesterday (about what's a good image resolution) to my twitter followers, 20 people responded immediately and told their opinions.

If you think Twitter is of no big use, you are probably thinking of it as a traditional social network with bi-directional "friendships", where you are limited to shouting short messages at each other.
If that's the case, you should give it a try and simply search on it for things that interest you. Then simply "follow" those people who share information about these things. Next time you log on, you will already find new interesting information from your customized news sources.

So if you came to my blog because of prison photography and you happen to be on Twitter, you might wanna follow @brookpete.

Sitting and Waiting

When you click on it you will see that I posted this one much larger than usual (1400 x 933). I think it's much more interesting this way, but I'm wondering whether it's too large for the average screen settings out there...

Cracking Up

These people just walked into the frame, cracked up about something, and walked away.
