A Day Out Shooting the Neighborhood with the Vivitar 28mm

After a long break since the new year, I'm finally getting back into the rhythm of street photography. Lately I've been focusing on other ideas and writing grant proposals, so I just haven't spent a full day out to go shooting even though I've been bringing my E-PL2 every where I go.

When Strong Photographs Make Strong Advertisements

Although the New York City Marathon has run it's course throughout the five boroughs, the advertisements for it still remain, which to my benefit, was still fortunate to catch a glimpse of when entering the 59th Street Columbus Circle subway station last Sunday.
