I’m getting there — almost through April.  I think it was around June that I started playing with infrared.

You might remember this one - I’m getting into recent 40D stuff. If I were her I would buy the CD.

He was the best guitarist I’ve heard so far. He was doing Hendrix - just his guitar. Flawless riffs. Usually, the best performers don’t need a lot of backup sound.

Anyway - as you might gather - I’m looking through my stuff for Subway Performers right now. Wondering how they’ll look in color. I hope I have the time to put them together into a book that would be ready for Christmas.

I’ve been collecting the subway shots (mostly shown in b&w) and was wondering how they would work as a collection in color. It’s a lot easier to get a good color book done than b&w. I’m in the strange no-man’s land between color and b&w. Since I was shooting RAW from the start - both are possible.

Sometimes I say to myself - who needs the Olympics when you’ve got this great stuff going on underground.
