When I started this series, some months back, it was with an essay by Tanja St about her city Skopje, capital of Macedonia. The  title of the series I took from a T.V series hosted by Edward R Murrow (which I learned about from the film "Good Night & Good Luck"). The basic point is to showcase great visuals about different parts of NYC and elsewhere in the world, thereby giving you a real sense of the place in question.    

Some of these photos are from the last day of the Bushwick Open Studios (June 1-3), and my exploration of the area. If it were not for a new friend, Ivana, I would not have been there. I plan to go through more studios next year which will be the 7th year of the event.

On the streets surrounding the studios
other artists were painting walls,
& adding new graffiti.

While waiting for Ivana I saw this flock
of pigeons patrolling their turf.

I've always liked birds, in a way more so then people.

I saw this on the side of a pay-phone,
and liked that it had the image of Helen Mirren .

Bushwick sector, Brooklyn. Whats amazing is that
places like this will soon be gone, and most
of the people there won't care until its gone.
