Callback: New York

My amazingly talented sister Lorelei Conover posted a lovely album of New York from my birthday weekend.

I almost cried while looking through these photos of my old neighborhood, apartment, Central Park, Times Square… *le sigh* how I miss my home away from home.

The Paris Metro

A stunning photo essay of the Paris metro system over at Sleepy City which includes stations you know, those abandoned that you probably have heard of but never seen and some that haven’t been accessed by the outside world in over 50 years.

Who wants to go tunnel running with me?

I’d really like to own my own Rolleiflex. I’ve never worked with medium-format, but I’d rather have a quality camera than buy a low-quality beginner’s camera that I’d outgrow quickly.

I miss my cameras a lot. I really should have at least brought my Pentax. It’s an old camera and pretty basic but it’s reliable and takes great photos. I also still need to get the Nikon that Sam gave to me a while back fixed. Maybe if I had my cameras, it would give me the kick in the butt I need to really discover New York.
