Queens Photo Du Jour: An Offer You Can’t Refuse

Some of the people reading this are aware that the Mister’s birthday is coming— and soon. I mention this because he has been agonizing about how to celebrate it. FOR THE LAST TWO MONTHS. I am not exaggerating when I write that his “plans” have changed on a near daily basis. As of last night he stated he wanted to go a jazz club. When asked what I thought about this I told him that while not too crazy about his choice, it was his birthday and he can do what he wants.

What tomorrow will bring, who knows? All I’m saying is if he doesn’t make up his mind soon I will make it for him. And as of today “Passions” made the list.* I wonder if they offer these lubes in flights (like brandy or port)— or if this purely an a la carte affair?

From The New York Shitty Inbox: Seriously Good Stuff

Noah Devereaux writes:

You’ve been running some of my photos from the flickr pool for a while and I figured I should introduce myself and let you know how much I appreciate your blogging of daily eccentricities. When I moved to New York over a year ago and trying to figure out where to live, NYShitty was one of the things that brought the Garden Spot to my attention. I was drawn by the unpretentious quirkiness that I saw in your pictures and now that I’ve been living here for a while, I don’t want to live anywhere else.

For the past few months I’ve been working on a project about our local treasure, Newtown Creek, that you’ve been running photos from. I’m a photographer professionally but have been bumming around the creek out of personal curiosity and it’s great to be able to have the work in progress seen by a local audience. I’m sure you’ve seen a lot of the pictures already but I have a selection of works so far at my website.

Give Noah’s shots a look-see. They’re amazing!

New York Shitty Slide Show Du Jour: Queens Selections

As I mentioned previously today I took an afternoon sojourn in Queens. Truth be told, I was not in “in the zone”. Some days I am more photographically-inclined than others. But I did have my moments— such as the above image. It has a certain Edward Hopper quality I kind of like. What was even more interesting is what I stumbled upon— quite literally— immediately after taking said photo.

A motel fit for a queen— albeit one on a tight schedule. I told the Mister this is where I want to spend our fourth wedding anniversary. He quipped that he was nonplussed that they don’t charge by the quarter hour. So it goes. Without further ado here are some shots from today’s sojourn around Queens. Enjoy!
