I felt like I hadn’t shot too much this year– until I went through my photos to pick a few faves.
This seems sooo long ago – view from my old cube (shot in January 2010).
Shooting 50 First Jokes is always fun (can’t wait to do it again in a few weeks).
Liars at Bowery Ballroom.

Jon Lang – Recess at B Bar (Recess has moved to King’s Cross)
Madri Gras at Fort Useless — that reminds me, I have to make the King Cake this year…

Noveller at Glasslands — I printed this one for “More Guitar..” also.
Jenna and me in Portland, ME. I miss you Jenna–come back to Brooklyn!!
I was home sick in a snowstorm and so I went to my basement and dug up my old 45s from the ’80s. More here.
Drink Up Buttercup’s CD release party at Pianos — I was in a lot of pain that night — it was still fun though.
Riddum Saunter at Cake Shop — ever wander into a place and are lucky enough to get a wonderful treat? That was Riddum Saunter…
The National at The Bell House. This was an entertaining evening (and I put aside the pain in my shoulder to take some shots).

BRAHMS at Pianos — I quite like them –but not those orange plastic barriers…
RUSSIAN LOMO 6×6 TLR CAMERA LUBITEL 166V — I want to spend my life looking though this.

Kidrockers – perhaps my favorite band mash up shot yet (but I really like them all) Big Trouble, Eternal Summers and members of Neon Indian.
Double Down opening at Fort Useless.
Twin Shadow (Kidrockers Winters Eve Festival). I was laid off from my job earlier the day of this show — it was good to be able to work on my favorite project that evening.
