Urban Dog Sled

This photograph is why I like the Ricoh GR so much. Walking to the subway this morning, head down, thinking about the trip I was about to take, I had almost no warning of this highly unusual scene approaching at a very fast clip. The Ricoh has a setting for snap shooting where the camera is already programmed to take a picture at a…

The Fly On His Foot

Although they didn’t speak much (if any) english we exchanged happy…

Let Me In

His mother nicely told him that the problem was he didn’t live there.
