most precious blood

Lower East. Canal at Mulberry. Year of the Dragon. Chinatown v. Little Italy. Triads clash with Cosa Nostra. East meets West. At one time, Canal Street was the DMZ, the Great Wall between Chinatown and Little Italy. No longer. Chinatown absorbed Canal Street and assimilated everything around Little Italy. daddy, i though we were in Chinatown? these stores are italian, right? the young girl asked as her father steered her through the crowds. yes, dear, dont worry, there's only a few blocks of them left. i put down my americano, bemused. my brother and i were having a coffee at La Bella Ferrara, while cabbed over from Chelsea to shoot with us. Mike, my brother was off getting some shots. I was enjoying my coffee, watching people, listening. La Bella Ferrara is right on the corner of Canal and Mulberry. It is the perimeter wire of Little Italy. Directly across the street, like a guard box, is the Shrine of San Gennaro, the patron saint of Naples. San Gennaro, or St. Januarius, was martyred by the Roman emperor Diocletian. Very little is known about his acts or the exact circumstances of his martyrdom, but after his death his body was brought to Naples, and in the Neapolitan tradition of saints, his blood, captured in two small phials, was found to gurgle and bubble when placed near the head of the same martyr. Neapolitan immigrants brought San Genarro to New York with them for protection. The Italians of Little Italy have for the most part assimilated and dispersed themselves away. Occasionally they come in from the outer boroughs or North Jersey to remember the taste of things Italian; a gellato, a canoli, a plate of bolognese and a carafe of chianti, take home a pound of gabagoo. But Little Italy is a tourist sanctuary now, no longer a thriving migrant neighborhood. From La Bella Ferrara, on the border between the swelling and robust Chinatown and the retiring Little Italy, I can see that San Gennaro has his work cut out for him these days.

Cute little thing ain't it? anyways, I went to school and skipped last period to meet up with my friends. They ended up going to work so I went home 20 mins earlier then usual. What a waste of a skip day haha. So anyways I head up to 14th street because me and my friend thought I'd be entertaining to get a hamster to play with. We had no idea what we were going to do with it at the end of the day since none of us could keep it haha. It was so random. We named it Hamster (very original I know) and he doesn't really like to be held haha. I think he gets scared or something cause he always takes a shit when you play with him too long haha. He pissed in my hand and one time, I blew really hard at it's face and he did a flip. He then took a dump on the desk he was on and tried to kick it at me haha. It was so random and funny today. In the end we gave it to a friend to keep overnight since he has 10 already but he found another person who wanted Hamster so we gave him away. This little cuddly thing shits and pisses everywhere haha, in fact, he peed in this coffee cup haha.

biggah Bernard Faerman is 87 years old and works 5 days a week at his shop, fixing and selling cash registers at his shop. I met up with friend/fellow photographer Browning last week to shoot some medium format film together. We started in Chinatown in Manhattan and then actually went to Chinatown in Flushing, where Browning lives.. it was cool being able to shoot in both Chinatowns. Back to Bernard.. he and his son own this amazing store which is like stepping back in time when you walk through the doors. They sell and fix cash registers and have a ton of beautiful, mint condition registers. Browing and I stood there talking with him and his son for about 30 minutes, about the neighborhood and then about cameras. Bernards son is a bit of a camera collector and pulled out a beautiful Leica which looked to be about 50-60 years old. Bernard indulged my request to get a few photos of him.. more to come.
Urban Rainbow: East Broadway at Night
Made by RBudhu
With a camera the discovery of the external world simultaneously reveals the internal world Henry Cartier-Bresson My initial motivation to take up photography was to document the things I saw on a daily basis. It's interesting because it underscores my initial assumption that photography is mainly a documentary medium. However, with practice and time, I've modified that view; the genius of photography is its ability to capture a unique moment of reality. Of course, every photographer knows this concept as Cartier-Bresson's Decisive Moment. This modification has not only enriched my perspective on the nature of photography, but also greatly enhanced my creative process. This maturation would never have happened so quickly without the benefit of the great photographers on flickr. The digital age has not only allowed me to snap thousands of photos with little cost, but it has allowed me to learn from some awesome photographers and I guess this is my way of saying thanks. Thanks!

Twilight, Chinatown Rooftop Graffiti and Brooklyn Bridge, New York City
Made by andrew c mace
Here's maybe a different view of the Brooklyn Bridge, I don't know. I'd always been meaning to capture this comp since the first time I walked across the Manhattan Bridge. You can pretty much overlay a 3x3 grid with something different of interest in each area, and all lines point to the Brooklyn Bridge. I liked the colors and tones in the twilight. It was really windy out. I've been experimenting with this Color Efex filter regrettably named Glamour Glow. Though I guess it's meant for portraits, if it's applied subtly after sharpening, it can smooth out the tones and add a little bit of glow. I blended exposures here, like I did in my last image. I might do this quite often when possible from now on. I view it as a way of using ND grads when the horizon isn't a straight line. Blended exposures (-2/0/+2) / 12mm (18mm=) / f/13 / ISO 400
Penny by Spotlight
Made by Linus Gelber
This is my first time seeing the burlesque group The Peach Tartes, and they're good fun. I spend more time watching than shooting, since the five performing Tartes are a lot of new to process in a single sitting. You know what they say. It's a tough job, but someone's got to do it. Penny Dreadfulz comes out all stark setting and simplicity, with a bowler hat, a snug dress, a chair, and a vivid mop of hair. The camera loves her immediately. When the curtain opens she is seated, back to the audience, with a spotlight picking out the curve of her neck. It's a lovely moment of classic cabaret.

Oh man, So today I woke up early to go to gym class. I decided to skip my last class because I have lots of homework to catch up on. But guess what? I just got aperture 3, I had a Starbucks drink and I decided to take this! aperture 3 finally have curves in it and I plan on learning how to use it. People say it's pretty close to levels so it shouldn't be too hard to learn. Another thing about me guys is that I can't drink coffee, when I do I get really sleepy. coffee has quite an opposite effect on me for some reason, so this drink here is a hot chocolate haha. I also learned that I can add words to my photos using preview and instead of a word processing app haha, so now you guys can see my exif data!

The Bunny's Back in Town
Made by Linus Gelber
Since last summer, Scotty the Blue Bunny has been away in Sweden - bunnies are migratory animals, as it turns out. It's good to see him home again, and back out on the burlesque circuit. Scotty learned a few years ago that a man in a bunny suit armed with a microphone can say just about anything to just about anyone, which makes him a dangerous, hilarious, and unpredictable host. You sit in front at your peril. And woe betide anyone who tries to send a text message while he's watching. See it bigger - he's a pretty tall bunny.
Exit 3 on the FDR
Made by scottdunn
The Triton flew well this day and handily lifted the G9 out of the small amphitheater in East River park. Winds were annoying and carried the camera from the river to FDR drive and back again every 5 minutes or so. Two or three times the changes were abrupt enough to turn the Triton upside down and send it diving toward the river. Letting out line would help it recover, but it worked best after the flying angle lowered to about 45°. This diving behavior is very strange for the Triton. For now I blame ill wind. In the foreground we see a south east portion of the lower east side. Up and to the left, the Brooklyn bridge hides behind the Manhattan Bridge.
James Blood Ulmer
Made by fstop45
Blood is the Real Deal. He, like John Lee Hooker and Muddy Waters before him, distills the ups and downs of human exsistance into a song. Blood does not just sing a song, he has lived it. But the thing that really puts him apart from the others is his experience outside the blues, with everyone from Ornette Coleman to Funkadelic. This shot was done in Soho NYC with Illford Pan F 50. This image was 2nd runner up Honerable Mention/ portrait in the 2007 Interanational Photo Awards competition. (Lucie's) and 2nd place catagory winner in pX3 (Paris).Please take a look at the other great artist in my stream.

Somewhere, between the so much that was expected from the so-called Generation x and the little that is considered of the Generation Y, some souls get fed up of struggling to find the path they supposedly had to build and cross... And, tired of not belonging, they fall through the cracks into a limbo, waiting for something else to do that defies stereotypes, and leaving the burden of the future's responsibility to whoever comes next... How are they going to fix the world if there's so much they can fix of themselves first? Lower East SIde, New York Taken and processed with an iPhone 4
Made by Ashley Dinges
New York City, the Lower East Side. Ludlow St, just a few blocks south of Houston. This was my first trip to the city, and I didn't know what to expect. I stayed in the building I was standing upon to take this. I love the Lower East Side; a lot of the stores and restaurants are posh, but the apartments and architecture of the buildings look worn, giving it a really gritty, urban feel. In some ways, it reminded me of downtown Detroit. Like this photo? Buy a print!! www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=16766659
love :: in the lower east side
Made by reny :: honey
*explored!* This is by far my favorite photo I have ever taken. I went to have a late lunch in the lower east side after a long day of walking around Soho. When we got up to leave, I noticed this cute couple at the end of the bar. He reminded me of my celebrity crush - Andrew Garfield and although I never saw the girls face, her hat - shoes and dress (which matched the floor) was enough in itself for me to take this picture. Not only do I love the composition of the photo - but the story it can tell. It captures the young, lively and fashionable culture of the lower east side in NY.
Sunday Morning on Broadway
Made by keithhull
X I know they say New York is incredibly busy and never sleeps but on this Sunday morning at 7am. I could stand in the middle of Broadway and take a shot (not normally recommended). Anyway there is just a couple of people and some uncollected garbage. The shot is looking down Broadway towards downtown I like the sense of the street being a tunnel and the early morning sun was a blessing THANKS FOR YOUR VISIT HAVE A GREAT DAY To see keithhull's Most Interesting Photos on Flickriver
