When people ask me what I do photographically, I tell them that I do street photography, which usually confuses them. I'm all about the found image. I don't do set-ups, and I certainly don't do poses - not that there's anything wrong with that, but it's just not for me (at least right now). I identify more with Weegee. Or perhaps Robert Frank. But I also do a lot of architectural imagery. Most of that never gets posted, but every now and then I get some good ones. The recent one from Chinatown in Philly was good. It's kind of like a fortress tucked in behind a moat of parking lots. And this one from Manhattan is good too. I like the way the water towers balance with the spires of the cathedral.
