A life, pocket cameras, and a studio practice.
Posting twice a week and sometimes more!

Took the New York Free Water Taxi to IKEA last week. Splendid views, Swedish Meatballs and plebian photographs. I've amused myself, and hopefully you too, by fooling around with filters to see what I could salvage. Wasn't much there but these four caught my eye. I think they are too much sugar-substitute on the palate, but at least, the pixels were free.
