I frequently see people walking or jogging in bike or lanes and I can’t seem to help but think how ridiculously idiotic they look. I can only speculate that their reason for engaging in this behavior is that they believe that all the people walking on the sidewalks will slow them down, even in an industrial ghost town stretch of street such as this. I can get annoyed with cyclist that don’t follow traffic rules, ride on the sidewalks, endanger pedestrians, etc, but I’m in their corner on this one; and when this pedestrian has to have some fixie’s handlebars surgically removed from their rectum, perhaps in time they will change their behavior.

Less than 48 hours ago, it was 68 degrees, the snow was all but melted, and sunny. Tonight it snows...
Taken at the corner of Bedford and Lafayette, the subway entrance in my neighborhood. This photo should be viewed large, you may click the image to do so.

Due to repeated cycles of winter weather, pickup of trash and recyclables in NYC has been suspend for much of the past few months. This enormous backlog of refuse are quite evident and I don’t envy the sanitation workers. It takes up precious sidewalk realestate and on warmer days emits a fetid odor, but the rats are happy.

You may ask, what does it matter what some random, wild-eyed dude thats five days off his haloperidol says anyway? In isolated incident form, nothing at all, but this happens to me all the time...Regardless of the location, both civilians and members of law enforcement alike. So all of my ranting boils down to this very question: what is it about a photographer that seems to invoke the most basic paranoid instincts in people? Its obvious I'm not some sleazy paparazzi photog shoving a gigantic zoom lens in some has-been celebrity's face, nor am I some voyeur sporting an erection clicking away in the bushes. Regardless, people will dive out of the way of a camera as if the shutter will rob them of their very soul...Interesting
