The Street

These images are based on candid photographs I have taken in urban neighborhoods. The storefronts have a nostalgic feeling with layers of signs and the way they have adapted to new owners' and residents' needs. Chance encounters of people walking down the street or in moments of reflection that recall E.B. White's cosmopolitan refuge. Walking in the City is one of the joys of being here.
