Hong Kong

For the month of June I traveled to Hong Kong and Vietnam to visit my buddy.  While in Hong Kong I realized that people would much rather communicate through their phones other then physically talking to each other.  This is an image from an ongoing photo essay about people and their disconnect with each other.

Watch & Pray

There is a lot I want to say about Christianity and how I believe it is forced on all of us but instead here is a Watch and Pray sign that a church has nailed to a tree.  Kind of ironic to harm a tree to spread a message of love and compassion but whatever!

Subway

Riding on the subway is a necessity of life if you live in New York, it is also the most interesting place in the world.  This old lady caught my attention so I snapped a quick picture of her.  She was so slouched and when she stood up she was almost staring directly down.  When her stop came she stood up and quickly got off and she was gone.

LIRR

If you have ever been on the LIRR going to Penn Station you know how this man feels.  It can be either the longest ride to the city or it can fly by via naps.  Most of the time though it drags on and you contemplate driving next time knowing

China Town Hustle

China Town on the lower east side of New York City is one of my favorite places to photograph.  I find it to be such an interesting place of culture, tourism and hustling.  If you stay on Canal St. for any period of time their are people trying to get you to buy anything and everything from a little Statue of Liberty replica to knockoff handbags. But once you venture off Canal and go on some of the back streets it is all Chinese food stands selling foods that I have never seen or honestly would want to try.  This lady had the biggest crowd around her for her fruit.  She was for sure in charge and was working deals with everyone.

Art

This is an old picture of my neighbor back in Ventura.  His name is Art and he is a radically awesome dude.  He is a character for sure and I could talk to him for hours about everything under the sun!
