It will be hanging there for the next year until Spring 2010.

This photo is a trip. I am always trying to take a photo when two subways ride side by side and I can see into the other subway. This one looks so bazaar to me. And I took it with ISO 400 film, can't believe it came out.

Found freshly painted on 4th Street between Highland and Citrus avenues in Hancock Park area of Los Angeles.

How it happened.

 

Film crews are working on a trailer for a TV show called Trauma. Today (3.29.09) they blow'd shit up! Waited for this shot for 4+ hours.

Prep the ride to SUMMER STREETS!

2nd Street, Market to King, is one of the Big 56 new bike projects, an essential cyclist route with some of the worse streets surfaces in the city.

I liked how the light was hitting this building. Used my trusty, helmet kickstand to prop up my bike.

 

Today's goal was to find the point where folks cross LBJ Freeway to head towards downtown Dallas. I found it but it isn't very convenient for quick trips into the city.

 

I did manage to find some interesting things to shoot.

August 9th marked New York City's first Summer Streets. Kinda trippy...From 7:00 am to 1:00 pm, 7 miles of roads were closed to car traffic. The route ran from the Brooklyn Bridge to East 72nd Street via Centre Street, Lafayette Street, Fourth Avenue and Park Avenue. Major crosstown routes — including Chambers, Canal, East Houston, 14th, 23rd and 59th Streets — remained open to traffic.

 

Summer Streets is also scheduled for August 16 and 23 (7 a.m. until 1 p.m.).

Miguel and Jose, proud members of the Puerto Rico Schwinn club.

 

I have found three different Puerto Rican bike Clubs in Bushwick. Here is the rest of the series: Bicycle Clubs

Great care goes into the look and style of both the members and bikes.

 

Also, they are great places to listen to music and drink a beer on a sunny afternoon.

I found robin a month ago, in a quiet less gentrified part of Prospect Park: Robin

 

For the last fifty years he has collected, restored, and built Schwinn Bicycles. His Bikes are works to behold. Lovingly restored using vintage parts with perfect period pieces. This little green one had a cobras head above the original light, three working bells, an odometer, original three gear stick shift, and small dice bolts.

 

He has three basements filled with his work. He is at 8th ave and 17th street, always out front with some bikes and happy to talk. Pictures don't do them justice, go visit him.

Raoul (right), Edgar (middle) and Pablo (left) are three of the members of a classic Schwinn club in the Bronx. The club has two garages filled with Schwinns and other historical bikes, some dating back to 30's.

 

These three bikes are from the early 50's, the original advertising flyers are hanging on the clubhouse walls. I myself am partial to the 70s Sting Rays, but thats what I grew up with.

I had run across BFresh last week and we agreed to get together and take more pictures of the Big Ballers Bike Club.

 

BFresh builds the bikes, with his sister Terri and brother T, three of the members of the club. This one, complete with Betti Boop doll, fuzzy dice, and low rider tires was on par with his other.

I met BFresh as I was heading towards a Pigeon roof.

 

He was in a hurry, but we agreed to meet next week with his friends and other bikes.

 

Not only did he have a great look, but his bike had a PSP attached to the handlebars
