The 10th Year...

9/11 has become a reflecting point for many Americans (myself included). And on this 10th anniversary I find myself looking around and realizing how much NY has really changed. Walking down the West Side Highway you can't help but see the transformation this city has gone through. Signs reading "We Got Back Up", "9/11 Made us Stronger" rang true to NY. The "Tiles of America" show how united we've become. And I can't help but be a proud American. The colors shined strong on WTC 1 and with the Plaza, Reflecting Absence and the museum near completion. It's a sight to behold and of course capture. Which I have done but will take a little while longer to put up due to school and work. But for now I leave these images taken with instagram.

Boom Boom Satellites - 18

And as promised here is the pic with Boom Boom Satellites, I gotta admit NYCC/NYAF was a blast this year and sitting with these guys were a blast. Hope to get these edits soon, but with the Masters going on as well as heavy Room Renovations (will save for another post). This will have to do for now. Special thanks again for Amanda Nanawa and Mike Ricca for hooking up and taking photos respectively. Let's see what else 2010 has to offer but for now it's time to wrap up and get ready for the Vamps concert later tonight! But as usual check out the gallery HERE!

That's right, I got to sit down and chat with the wonderful Puffy Ami Yumi, J-Punk superstars from Japan! Even though I have been busy with my Masters program, I still find time to do this. (but at least you can see why I haven't been posting anything). Either way it was a great sit down and I'll upload it as soon as I can (I have no help). But that's one down for today at the Kitano, next up will be Boom Boom Satellites at 6! Special Thanks to Amanda Nanawa for hooking this up for me and Mike Ricca for taking these great photos!

Walking with Dinosaurs...

July has been relatively slow, and after the 4th this have been all about relaxing and taking small gigs to pay the bills. Nothing serious nothing crazy, as mentally preparing for my Masters is exhausting enough! As a treat to myself I went and saw "Walking with Dinosaurs" at Madison Square Garden. What can I say but this show was amazing! I would have filmed it if they let me, but to say the least I did get some great shots in this collection called "WALKING WITH DINOSAURS"! Click to see it all! So amazing....

And the Rockets Red Glare...

Happy 4th all! How was your celebrations? Mine were quite spectacular! After waiting for the fireworks to start for about 6 hours+ (Had to get their early for best space for photography) The show started, and I got to experiment with my D90 and the results? Check em out here in my "4th of July Collection!"

Hideo Kojima And Me...

Hideo Kojima And Me...

Week two of the countdown to my 33rd Year on earth. I got to cover a gig with the man who made Metal Gear himself, Hideo Kojima! And got a MGS1 for the PS1 signed by him. A great addition to a growing signature collection! But the sad part is, I didn't get a chance to take a picture with him as I shook his hand after he signed for me. But towards the end I was promised a pic. That didn't happen... The Security didn't get the message and rushed Kojima to his rest area. What I did get though was this pic, taken on my camera by Amanda Nanawa. It's become notorious in the past week for how cool a candid shot it is and I am actually happy to have gotten this. But I SWEAR, I WILL get a shot with the man someday! Until then enjoy my pics from the Uniqlo signing event! HERE!
