It's been a while since I've been out to my second home in the Rockaways. I miss it. Now that it is Christmas time, I am looking for to getting out there and shooting and meeting up with old friends. The cold air reminds me of several winter out there, bundled up and hoping for a snow storm.
Here is a photo I took with my Mamiya 645. This photo reminds me of the laid back feeling I have when I get out there, as well as feeling like I have gone back to another place and time when NYC was not so homegenous. Oh, I miss ya'!!!
And I can't wait to see Butchie!

This Time in America: Part I
Curators Giselle DeVera and Brenda Ann Kenneally
November 11, 2010 – Gallery I/D is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition, This Time in America:
Brenda Ann Kenneally
Part 1. The two-part series, co-curated by renowned photographer Brenda Ann Kenneally, highlights
photographers who have turned their lenses on America. Part 1, which runs concurrently with Art Basel
from December 2nd to January 15th, features award-winning photographers and photojournalists who
captured diverse segments of American society. What they saw – a New York community of impoverished
social outcasts, cowboys and urbanites, segregation alive and well in America, U.S. soldiers in slumber
between wartime activities, the colorful frenzy of stock market charts and more – remind us not only of
the unique nature of America, but of our fluctuating and transformative place in the civilized world.
