My grandson, Elliott and myself, having a bit of fun at Coney Island in August of 2019. The parrot is real.
Taken a few years ago while I was visiting with my son and family. On the eve of the 10th anniversary of this photoblog I thought I would look back for a moment. This is a morning shot, with some fog in the background. The sidewalks were designed in another era, where there were fewer cars and more pedestrians.
Our son’s book will be released Tuesday, November 6th. It’s available on Amazon.
Wednesday evening he’ll be at the Greenlight Bookstore in Brooklyn for a conversation and signing event with Tobias Carroll at 7:30PM. I’ve read the book and it is amazing and makes sense of the seemingly chaotic and random history of rock n roll. Laced with interviews and more, it’s a real page turner for music buffs and musicians alike.
If you live in or near Brooklyn, stop by and say hello. I live in Seattle, otherwise I would be going. Ian is very approachable and has my self deprecating sense of humor.
PS: I took the back cover photo and the one you see on the bookstore page, via the link above.
Taken a few of years ago. A view of Fall from Prospect Park in Brooklyn, a few blocks from where our son lives.
In todays world it seems easy to connect/reconnect. Saw this guy texting on the cobblestone streets of DUMBO, in Brooklyn. After a few minutes of standing alone the gentleman was reconnected with his companion.
Spotted on a building in the Dumbo area of Brooklyn, NY.
I have no idea what this means. Curbing one’s enthusiasm I get….., but this?
Washington Cemetery can be seen from this elevated section of the F Train, as well as the yard where subway cars are parked and serviced. Coney Island is home to very large apartment complexes, something you don’t usually see in photos of the summer retreat.
