inmo


side A



side B

I was sitting at banquette, with inmo and maybe patric and steve, at 4th and main a couple of years back, in the hey day of the locals, when that strange silver haired security guy walks up and incongruently says, "hey, does anyone want a real prison shank?".
we are like uhh? whats this cooky guy going on about now. then he proceeds to produce from his pocket this scabby little nasty street knife. I was a little slow on the uptake, normal, and inmo was thinking pretty quick. he grabs it and puts it in his pocket, just as I am realising what it is. damn! shit! fuck! i am thinking and inmo can see my desire. I must photograph that thing!
I literally had to pry that nasty grubby object of bad energy from inmo's hands after days of persuasion.
I know he was enjoying the torment I was going through. devellish little bastard, still love him though.

two corners

two corners that have forever changed. both of these frames were taken around mid 2004.
its so different on both of these corners now,

the image below is 5th and broadway, now there is a rite aid drug store, and the building is gentryfied.




and this is 8th and broadway, also a new loft gentryfication job, with a necklace of biege planters and cute mini pines.



I suppose I should be thinking about reshooting these two corners, but now that they are glammed up they don't have the same appeal.
